My Corolla has served me well for a couple of years, but lately I've been wanting to get into something bigger. The primary reason is the legroom (I'm 6'4" and my little Corolla can be a tight fit.) Secondly, I need something with a little bit of cargo capacity for things around the house. There is no way I'd be able to fit a lawnmower, ladder or anything like that in my 'Rolla.
So the first vehicle I'm going to look at is the Chevy Equinox. Based on the superficial research I've done so far, it looks to be a decent buy. Most places are giving it a 4 out of 5 and are generally pretty positive. Have you heard anything about the car and/or it's reliability? It's a good looking ride and it's fairly reasonably priced, starting in the low-$20k range, a lot cheaper then the Toyota Highlander or something along those lines.
What other alternatives would you recommend looking into for a small to mid-size SUV that's fairly reasonably priced?
Thanks for your help.
