I'm planning to buy a car I want an SUV... I love the Nissan murano but I heard it wastes a Lot of gas but I want an SUV that I don't have to spend too much on gas. What do you recommend?

I've never owned an SUV that got better than 17-18 miles to the gallon. My first jeep got about 17. My suburban got 16. The jeep I have now gets about 17. Loved all of them anyway. Maybe someone else can help! Lol

Maybe a crossover? I have a car - 7-series BMW. Love it!

I had 2 SUV's - a Durango and an Escalade.  Both got crappy mileage.

Why not a crossover?  Something like the VW, get it with diesel, and it gets great mileage.

It's technically not an SUV but I would recommend the cube cars. They only seat 5 people but there is a lot of space in them. We rented one once and it was great on gas and fit all of our suitcases comfortably.

I just got a Mazda CX-5 and love it. It is not a full-sized SUV but gets decent mileage. Drives like a dream! I had a CX-7 and loved it, and the CX-9s are bigger and also nice. Not sure how they are on gas.

This! We have a Kia Soul and it is great! We average 35 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the freeway.
