    Started looking and showed my DH and he's like u want an SUV big car babe, omg I'm such a noob at this I know nothing about cars. Practicality, fuel efficiency are big things I expect, value for money, safety. Budget is under 40k but maybe I should just look at run about cars since we always use DH dmax when we drive out of state etc

    What have you heard? Older jeeps are crap cars but the new ones are great. The current model grand Cherokee has a five star safety rating, it's super nice to drive, good on fuel (diesel) and is finished beautifully. When we bought it we also test drove a Kia Sorrento and a ford territory. The Kia wasn't a patch on the other two. The territory was quite nice, but heavier handling than the jeep. DH also preferred the 4wd capability and higher tow capacity of the jeep, but depends if that's important to you. We got a limited (model up from base) as we wanted leather seats and a few other features not in the base model and that was about $10k more than the titanium territory (top spec) so it also depends on your budget. The jeep we found is similar in terms of drive and features to a VW Touareg but it was cheaper than the VW.

    $40k is a decent budget for an SUV. when we started looking I naively thought a budget of $25k would be adequate 😂😂😂

    our Volvo is a 2012 model and we got is for just under $40k. brand new it would've been double that easily so we were very happy to get a 3 year old car for that price. the original owner bought it brand new and lost all the value on it (like from its original sale price) and we've picked up a newish car with lots of life still left in it

    Yeah DP has a Wrangler (2012) and has had a few engine issues with it. I also love the look of the jeeps, especially the Grand Cherokee.
