    I don't own a SUV but am considering a toyota highlander. I like 56-61 Vettes, bonsai trees, vietnamese food, and college sports. I have no use for pro sports, chicken dishes with boingers in them, purple, or butchy broads. There, I've introduced myself.

  • Like this car for comfort and safety a lot but wish it was a little bigger for my 6'4" husband. The CRV and RAV4 are about the same. The SantaFe(Hyundai) is perfect size but questionable body quality. The Highlander is great but too pricey. Is there anything out there? Is the Mazda MPV a better option? Really stuck.
  • well i recently brought a new rav 4 2001,and since then i.e- 7 months i hear this rattle its kind of funny its their sometime not the other time been to the dealer 3 times no change in it yet and it drives me nuts sometime, and also since last 2 weeks i hear this grinding sound when taking sharp turns or just changing lanes at on the highway, my car is 7000 miles any ideas and suggestion would be greatly appreciated.thank you.
  • I'm looking for some advice on changing the power antenna myself on a 1997 Toyota 4Runner SR5 2WD. The motor on the antenna has gone bad 4 years to the day I acquired this vehicle. Has anyone replaced this themselves and what is involved?
  • Just joined Town Hall today after searching for a solution to a problem I was having with my 97 Isuzu Rodeo. Fortunately, I was able to find the solution on the Isuzu forum. Plan to use this for help, tips, etc. Hopefully, I can provide some help as well.

    Other vehicles I own:

    > 2000 Ford Taurus
    > 1988 Honda Accord LX (need 5spd transmission)
    > 1989 Honda Accord LX (250,000+ miles and still
    going strong!!!).

    Love Mustangs (NOT Mustang IIs).

    Welcome hutch97.

    ajay010170, I see you found the Rav4 message board.

    quilter4, I think you need to roam around a bunch of SUV discussions :-)

    Hey roosh31, try posting your antenna question over in the Toyota 4Runner discussion. The "regulars" may not frequent this topic.

  • Ten days ago I bought a Toyota Highlander. I finally found the vehicle I liked better than my Camry. I spotted the message boards while doing research and came back today to join up.

    I've given up my 5-speed for an automatic, guess it was about time!

    I have gotten a lot of good information from your board discussions. I like the way everyone seems to help out. I have always loved toyota's. But have gotten hooked on 4 runners from my husband.
    Look forward to suggestions on a water leak.
  • Hello.
    My name is owl, and I require an SUV......NOW. ;)
    What happened yesterday makes the SUV in my sights, even more of a good choice for me.
    I am in love( no I won't let the car dealer know it! ) with the Jeep Liberty. I want one so bad I can taste it. Every new review reinforces the promise of this Jeep, and I must have one. I think I shall sell my kidney if I have wait....lil too far, huh? :)

    I hope to gleen some info from experienced 4X4'rs and off-roaders, as well. Thanks for the Forum.

    God bless America.

  • I have been reading your message boards the last few days, very interesting discussions,
    I am about to buy an SUV and can't decide between the Dodge Durango or Ford Expedition, seems like
    people have more bad things to say about their vehicle than good things........anyway thought I would join your forum, maybe go to roadside cafe and get some input there..


  • I leased a jeep sport 2001 in March. It's been running good so far. I started to hear a little noise in the front when I turn to the left. It sounds like stress between two parts.

  • Hello all users.

    I have been using Edmunds since 1998 when I bought my Corolla CE.

    I too am looking to upgrade to the Highlander (turning in the 5spd for an automatic. I would love any advice and I will continue to check out the Highlander discussion for additional help.

  • Hi,

    I'm in the market for a new SUV. I'll be buying in April 2002 so I'm taking the time now to research for the best buy. I've narrowed my choices down to a Yukon and a Sequoia.

    Hi Scott here. I already have a '96 Explorer. I am on a mission to let everyone know that Sloan Ford in Exton, PA are scammers. I need help in locating the N.E. Regional Ford Office address and/or phone #.

  • Hello, my name is Adam and I drive a 96 4Runner SR5. In February I will be buying a new SUV but I don't know which one to get. I've narrowed it down (kinda). I would like to get a 2000 or newer model of any of these, Sequioa, Expedition, Tahoe, Yukon, 4Runner, Durango. I like the bigger size SUVs, but I want to stay under $500 a month. Please let me know your opinions!

    Please feel free to have a look around in the Sequoia, Expedition, Tahoe, etc. discussion topics in the SUV board. Ask any questions you like and perhaps some of the owners will be able to assist you. As for financing and or leasing, you may want to try Town Hall's Finance/Warranty/Insurance message board:

    Hello to all SUV lovers. I've been skimming through several of the suv message boards during the past two to three weeks. My wife and I have three young children; ages 5,8, and 9, and we live in Bemidmi, Minnesota. We currently have three vehicles: a '99 Chrysler T&C, '98 Ford Contour, and '87 Chevy Suburban. We are going to definitely replace the sub shortly. We've almost decided on a new Ford Excursion and I've read every message on that board. I've never been partial to a single manufacturer, but the GM products have reduced their cargo space, the new ones don't even come close to my '87.
  • I'm a new user of the Town hall, I find it very informative. I am now looking to purchase the new Tribute. I have been reading alot and learning a lot. Thank you to you all. Just read the latest review on the Tribute and it failed to mentioned about it stalling. Has this issue been solved.?

    Thank you all again..

    my husband has a 2001 chevy tahoe. he has had many problems with it from the beginning but one
    that is confounding us is that it makes the rest of the family carsick.
    we have had 21 years worth of vehicles and carsickness has never been an issue....
    has anyone else heard similar complaints?
    thanks in advance-kris

    My husband and I trade every 2-3 years usually, as we are both car nuts and love that new car smell, as well as trying different things. Keeps life interesting.
    We have three teenagers: a daughter 18, and boy twins 15. We want to settle down now and buy a mid-sized SUV to keep. Our daughter drives her own 2001 Saturn SC2, and the twins will be driving themselves soon (yikes!). We also have a 2001 Chevy Impala which is going to one of the guys in next year.
    The decision has been narrowed down to the Lexus LX470 and the BMW X5. Any suggestions or insider knowledge would be appreciated.
    I've enjoyed reading all the interesting comments in Town Hall. Take care everyone!

    Welcome to Town Hall's SUV message board. You may want to check out the Lexus LX470 discussion topic or the BMW X5 discussion topic.

  • Hi. I leased a 1999 Lincoln Navigator, which I know is sometimes questioned as an SUV...but I really like it. Now my question: my daughter crashed the thing and they are replacing the frame as part of the repair - I guess the frame replacement is cheaper than the current vehicle value. My questions are: how bad is the vehicle going to behave after being rebuilt on the new frame and, more importantly, how bad a financial hit am I going to take next year when it come off lease and it has to be auctioned? I am new to Edmunds, so I was not sure where to even look for answers to these questions. Thanks!
  • steverstever Posts: 52,572
    Welcome and thanks for the tough questions! Hope your daughter was unscathed in the wreck.

    For lease questions, try the (aptly named) Lease Questions - Ask Here discussion.

    As far as a replaced frame and the effect on drivability, I suggest that you ask about it on the Lincoln Navigator board. I doubt that anyone else there has had that job done, but someone there may know a direction to point you in. This archived discussion may help too:
