  • Well, I'm going to buy a new one pretty soon since my family is growing and we don't fit in our Nissan Xterra anymore, but I'm leaning towards the Highlander. It gets better gas milage than the rest and seats a lot of people. I will be going to the car show in a few weeks, though and am taking notes! I'm curious to see what other people respond.

  • I love the Highlander! My best friend has one and they are so nice. It has decent gas mileage, and it's really comfortable.

  • I have a Pilot and LOVE it! It is comfortable and the third row seat is convienient. It is a bit roomier than the Highlander and a smoother ride than the Nissan. It has the highest crash test rating and they run forever. I didn't look at Mazdas.
    If I had to pick one.. Pilot(obviously), my second pick would be a HIghlander but I would try and go Hybrid.
    From the finance side of it Honda and Toyota are going to hold their residual value much better. These days every little bit counts!!!

  • Pilot all the way. Like the PP, Highlander would be my second choice. Personally, I'll never buy anything but Honda again.

  • I've never had any of the above, but just wanted to say: Make sure you try your carseat/carseats out in all of the ones you consider before commiting! :) I have a Jeep Commander and love it, but a friend of mine bought a Durango and with two mid sized car seats for her toddlers in the back she can barely see anything out the back!! She hates it and tells me all the time that she regrets buying it only because it won't be convenient and roomy until the girls are out of car seats. Just thought I would mention that. Sounds like such a simple think, but people over look it. Good luck and enjoy your new suv!!
