For my daughter. She favors the Mazda CX-5 which wins most of the mag comparos. A quick look at Cars.com shows the price goes up quick for newer/lower miles units.

Who will do the maintenance on the SUV?

And would she consider a AWD wagon?

If she is paying go Mazda and don't bother convincing.

If you are paying the Mazda is still a great choice but plenty of great SUVs just what flavor of ice cream you like best.

It is hard to beat newer Mazdas. Solid construction and still has the "cute" factor with looking sporty.

I think these are hard to find in the Midwest because of age and that thing you didn't heard of in the South called RUST...

Did she actually test drive the CX-5 and a bunch of other similar vehicles yet?

Maybe it isn't all hype and there really is something to these cars?
