I wanted to hear your thoughts on getting a SUV...possibly a NEW SUV for my family.  I presently have about 14k to either put down or possibly purchase cash.  The issue I'm having is deciding which SUV to purchase.  I presently have a, soon to be, 4 year old boy and I'll be having a newborn son in a couple of months.  I would prefer to purchase something with great gas mileage, yes within an SUV option.  I recently noticed an advertisement for a Jeep Patriot 2012 for $11,999.  No one seems to believe me, but I did see this on the Sunday paper.  Eventough the this type of vehicle does not get "great" gas mileage, I would conside it since it's a new vehicle and I would be able to make a cash purchase.

Your thoughts, please.

Ask your family what their & your needs are then choose a SUV (or another vehicle) that can forefill those needs..

It seems apparant that one person cannot suggest anothers persons life-style.

"Jeep Patriot 2012 for $11,999"
who is selling it and why?
Anything that looks too good to be true probably is not.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

You might want to read articles like these to help you compare SUVs. They usually point out some good features and some pitfalls to avoid too. Good luck with your choice.

It's well known that Jeeps are pigs.  Crappy mileage, even worse driveability, and don't even get started on maintenance.

Buy one of the Ford suv's:  Escape, Explorer or Expedition.  (Excursion if you really need the world's largest and toughest SUV.)

An Expedition is whole different class of vehilcle from your run of the mill car or family SUV - you can "work" with an Expy - it'll do anything.

Decent mileage from the new models, super easily maintained by yourself, or at least won't present any mysteries to your local mechanic.
