We've been car shopping over the last couple of weeks and my husband wants us to get a 07 pathfinder. Its nice (just too much vehicle for my taste). I found the Hyundai Veracruz today and fell in love! If anyone has had any experience with this new line please let me know.
I think the Hyundai minivan is recommended by Consumer Reports. I don't think their SUVs were recommended, though. If you're looking for a mid-size SUV, I'd also look at the Honda Pilot. Everyone I know who has one loves it, and I don't feel like I'm scaling Mt. Everest to get into it.
