Smart Money: SUVs we love

Motoring Research Logo By John Moroney of Motoring Research | Slide 1 of 14: SUVs are generally more expensive than their car equivalents, but we love them anyway. The added room makes moving American-sized families and all their stuff from point A to point B just that much easier. The upright seating position imparts a feeling of command and safety. The rugged body style and attitude suggests an adventure off the beaten path. Given how much time most people spend in their vehicles, we tend to buy the best we can afford. Looks and amenities are important, but the wise shopper will look a bit deeper into a vehicle’s pedigree. How much does this car cost to run every year? What’s the reliability like? When it comes time to sell it, how much of my money will I get back? Follow MSN Autos on Facebook
