New car advice Sign In

Thinking of purchasing a new SUV. Would like 7-8 person seating, good mpg, good resale, good safety ratings. I've been looking at the 2011 Toyota Highlander and the 2011 GMC Acadia. Any opinions on these vehicles or other suggestions? Thanks. NJ Car Search.com

Haven't had alot of problems with Ford Flex's they have been out for little while know sold quite a few.. Very roomy and comfortable, not bad on fuel. Although they are ugly from the outside (in my opinion). Which in 2011 you can get the optional 3.5L EcoBoost engine which have very good power and good on fuel. You can find more information on the ford website they have videos, pics and you can build your car online.

Thanks so much for the comparison site! That is very helpful. By the way, I'm the wife, so I definitely like that answer. :)

the wife does always win, doesn't she!

but i have to go with the link deleted. it starts out less than the acadia and has a better safety record (i think the 2010 was a top safety pick? the 2011 should be as well)

keep us updated on which you choose.
