The security company at my work had to get rid of the Equinox's because of the poor reliability. They have 5 SUV's on campus and they were always having issues.

They've traded 3 of the 5 in for Escapes and said they have yet to have an issue yet, and can't wait to get rid of the final 2 Equinox's.

Too many problems with the Equinox's. I'd look at the Escape

Didn't you post a thread about some kind of re-curring engine vibration issue? or was that someone else?

That was just me being a anal OCD fuck. They kept saying it was normal. Dealer let me drive multiple new and used CRV's and they all do it. IDK

that's the same noise ours was making before it got taken in... and that's what warranty went after.

The dreaded vtc actuator

weird. i've replaced plenty of k24 timing chains (they stretch and throw an engine light). noisy startup is a common thing when they set a cam/crank correlation code. i do the guides, tensioner, and vtc actuator and the noise/codes go away.

I really like the latest Ford escapes. I had a 2017 Titanium as a rental when I was on vacation in Florida a couple months ago. It was pretty quick and it was comfortable. Seemed to be pretty roomy inside for a small crossover.

You can get the Escape with a 2" receiver hitch from the factory. Major plus in my book.

What model did your mom get? Yes the base even the mid is meh but the SEAL 4motion is legit. Apparently they got a dud. Ours has been nothing more but excellent. And cheap u say PUH. Much better quality in the VW compared to any of the SUVs in the same class for the money. And I have no idea about that trans issue as we have never experienced that. And didn't your mom test drive first? And yeah the Tiguan is no plush ride. I like the stiffer suspension, my wife nor I like driving cushy rides.

Maybe the interior quality is me...people always say that VW interiors are so nice, but every one I've ever come across feels cheap and doesn't hold up at all. They squeak and rattle like 90's GM products

Was there something wrong with the Subaru that you're not considering going back into a forester/crosstrek/outback? Our '16 forester premium nicely optioned wasn't much over $25k

Was about to post this too, my wife loves her new forester XT, hell I think it's fun to drive, a n/a motor trim one would fit the bill nicely, but it's cool having the turbo and sportier looks/ride on the xt if she's into that

I like our Legacy, shit - it's been (knock on wood) almost problem free since I bough it. Just replaced the timing belt, valve cover gaskets are starting to leak (it's parked next to a 3800 so I guess it's contagious) - easy fix.
I was eyeing the 2.0XTs and then wife's cousin bought the '16 Forester. Not a big fan of the CVT or handling on those things.

The trans is the one thing I don't care the most for, but who buys a crossover/small suv for the handling? Maybe if you're shopping a BMW or Porsche

If you haven't driven the XT don't write it off just yet. It's a world of a difference from the regular 2.5i models.
