    I will add and subtract from this list as my search continues.

    Here is what I've been looking at so far. If it's crossed out, I was looking at it, but have ruled it out. Cars with an asterisk mean I'm considering a used one.


    *Toyota RAV4
    Toyota Matrix
    *BMW X3 (Older - <2008)
    Mazda3
    Mazda5 (Especially 2012)
    Subaru Forrester

    My husband had a Forreter for 14 years and LOVED it!! The only reason he didn't get another is because we need a 3rd row of seats.

    My aunt has a BMW X3 and loves it. (I believe it's 4 or 5 years old.)

    I won't buy a Toyota anymore. I am just not convinced that wayward carpeting is the source of runaway cars.

    I own a Suburu Forester and I love it. Handles great in the snow for me, and I get good gas mileage. Comfortable ride too.

    I have a mazda 3 and I love it. Ive had it for 6 1/2 years and its been a great car! I even had the original battery up until a year ago, and I live where it gets super hot and they usually don't last for longer then 2 years.

    I just drove the Mazda5 and the Forester. The Mazda5 drives like a sports sedan, it made the Forester feel big and lumbering.

    A Nissan Rogue is similar & the price is comparable to your list. Just out of curiosity, why don't you like it? I have a Rogue & it's great! I've test driven a Toyota Rav4. It felt kind of cheap to me (drove kind of rough).
