Looking for a new suv something with a good warrantee and track record i like the Mitsubishi Endeavor and Hyundai Santa fe what is everyone's opinion on these two vehicles they seem to give the best bang for the dollar and have great warantees and also you can get great deals on them they seem to come down a lot on the sticker price well at least one dealer did...Also what about crash tests?
I like gm and ford but the warantees and the fact that they dont give good deals cancelled them out..
Looking for some input

Where did you get the info. that the Endeavor had a good reputation? We bought a SUV late last summer and in our research we quickly excluded the Endeavor.

The Santa Fe is a nice vehicle. Bad gas mileage, and the same refinement as the Escape (ie: not very refined inside). The warranty is very good.

The Chevy Equinox (what we bought - 2010) and GMC Terrain do not have good deals right now regarding financing and/or cash back. If you can wait a few months that will change.

I have social reasons why I wouldn't buy a Ford, but they do have some good deals. As for the vehicles themselves, the ones you'd probably be interested in are overpriced and not great inside (Edge), or basically a ten year old technology vehicle (Escape).

Of the two you mentioned I'd go Santa Fe. But I'd also not forget about the GM offerings (especially if you aren't looking to buy ASAP), and you could look at the Kia Sorento (though the reviews on them say lots of rattles and such after only a few months).

I just got a sweet deal on a Tiguan.





I would NEVER buy a Mitsubishi.

You didn't mention if you're looking at 4cyls or V6s.
But if you're considering a V6 Ford, the price you'd pay for an Escape would be close to the price of an Edge, which is a better vehicle in my opinion.
As for the Hyundai, I had an 03 Santa Fe GLS V6 and liked it for the most part. There were some electrical issues with the air bag system and the CEL coming on randomly. Hopefully they have those issues worked out by now. It averaged 17mpg with a city/highway mix. But then again who buys SUVs for the gas mileage right?

The new Sante Fe is nice but its sister product the Kia Sportage looks better in my opinion. I am talking about the upcoming 2011 model.

If people were smart, they would not buy the VW Tiguan and the failing Mitsubishi Endeavor. I've had experience with VW's and they have horrible reliability and you need unnecessary expensive oils, premium gas and VW parts. The Mitsubishi Endeavor has a bad reputation in my city.

You should shop for the Santa Fe or American SUV's like the Terrain or Escape!

The Endeavor is a dated design. I would go for a new Santa Fe. Also, Mitsus don't seem to be very popular, and my aunt's Galant seems cheaply made. The only Mitsu I would go for would be the Evo.

Also, take a look at the Kia Sorento.

Both the new Kia Sorento and Hyundai Santa Fe are made in the USA.
