    well, im selling my civic hatch (beater) this weekend and i need a reliable SUV. I drive alot for work (~100miles PER day). And winter is coming.

    What are your thoughts on 95ish Mitsu Montero? Isuzo Trooper? etc..? (only imports please :o)

    thanks

    land rover/range rover is about as unreliable as they come, go for something with cheap parts ala jeep tj/yj, stay away from grand cherokees to much fucking plastic

    Volvo 850

    more cargo room than almost any SUV, and far far better

    older non-turbo, they run forever, and even without a turbo would be faster than any SUV in that price range. Probably 95-97

    Pathfinder if you want something slightly nice and comfortable..

    Cherokee if you just want an old truck to haul shit.
