I am getting ready to trade-in my 2000 Volvo XC and 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport on another wagon.

Things that are important to me are:

Quality
Safety
Cargo capacity (for 3 large dogs and then some)
Fuel Economy
Price
Longevity
Warranty
Cost of replacement parts once the warranty has expired (I realize this is high on a Volvo)
Front or AWD

I love my Honda Pilot. The ride is smoother than my Ford Explorer was and it still has the cargo space I need to cart around Tessa.

You folks are all making me jealous with this new car talk!

I would LOVE to have something like a Volvo, but it ain't gonna happen.

Thanks for the feedback! ...you guys have given me some ideas I hadn't thought of.

Anyone have experience with the GMC Acadia?

GMC Arcadias are replacing the Envoy. Price wise they are almost as much as a full size SUV.

GMC's don't hold up well. I'm getting rid of my Jimmy (and yep, shopping for a "new to me" used car) because every year, another part dies...check out Consumer Reports

I just got a 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid 4x4!

It is awesome! Plenty of dog room, the back seats fold down flat- I am getting 32 mpg city and 29mpg on the highway. So worth it. I found it used.
