    Check out one of these guys:

    They look like a lot of bang for the buck (at least, while they're under warranty).

    My short list didn't contain a Kia or Sorento...
    Bill, can you elaborate on why the jeep ( and what model jeep?) didn't make your short list after your wife reminded you you'll need to keep the thing for 10 years? Reliability? Cost of maintenance? MPG? Resale value? Just curious, not starting anything. I'm in the market for a new ski vehicle myself soon and found this thread useful.

    My girlfriend has a 2014 Forester. Seats are fine...we take a lot of long trips up to northern VT, NH, etc. She did get a higher end package on her car though if that makes a difference in the seating quality.

    Bill,
    If a Jeep Wrangler is still on the list......try a late model Xterra with 4wd(2012-15') or 4Runner. Quite a few lightly used Xterras around, for a dinosaur design..but works fine($.01_opinion).
    MPG was never great but that's what you get for a truck chassis=great offroad.
