Which Suv Is Best For Me?

My good people,

Which SUV is best for me? I stay in my own house but my road is baaaaaaad!! You know what i mean. i use a Suzuki Vitara at the moment but it is wearing out fast asides parts being \scarce aand expensive. I had to import timing chain component from the US., the other time, i had a problem with it and the vhicle was down for like one month! 

Now, i am considering changing my car for another SUV. Now to the experienced car users/sellers/analysts, which will be my best bet to consider knowing that

1.) It must be an SUV (mid- or not too large for a family of 4)

2.) Must not consumer gas too much since i stay in Ikorodu but work on the Island

3.) Parts must be available (in Nigeria) and prices moderate

4.) The tokunbo car must not be more than N2.5m

5.) Must be fairly good off the road.

Do i make sense. I need the car like yesterday.

I am not based in Nigeria, i export to nigeria and visit there when needs be.

The pathfinder is a 2005 Model

Average mileage on a 2005 automobile will be 80K +/- 10K miles.

It is a powerful machine, and you can get it in whatever color u want it.

Comes with all the toy that you can imagine, all powered and you will surely turn heads and wont have to break the bank as well.

Like i said, willing to work with ur budget on that.

what you and others in your street need; go to your Local Govt and get the road fixed.

It will continue to cost you so much to 'operate' any SUV you drive continuously on those 'rickety' roads.

That said: Range Rover is the only true 4X4.

Air suspension adjust to the road surface.

Cgift, apparently you're faced with fuel efficiency versus off-road capacity. Now, I'm not a guru on automobiles but my advice is that you use the availablity of spare parts on ground as a guide in your decision-making.

Frankly, I would suggest a CRV with 4 cylinder engine and I think they are quite sporty, dependable and save you less trip to the fuel station. But I do doubt this would be your preference based on your judgement on the Murano (not-rugged enough).

Damola1,

I agree with you. This is very sad indeed. @cgift asked for advice and suddenly, he is inundated with offers from "vultures" trying to make quick money off him. I wish someone living in Naija will answer his questions objectively. Na wah o!

Quite dissapointed, NO man on the fence could advise, all of the advisers wish to make some dough along the way!

If you are really serious about the 4Runner, 2004 is not a 4 Cylinder, it is V6 and some V8

but u cld get something nice with low mileage on that budget of yours, so mail me if you are serious about it.

What size of jeep do you need ?

A diesel Mitsubishi Pajero or 4 cylinder Petrol Toyota 4-runner.

4 cylinder Nissan Xterra or Partfinder.

For the smaller size a MK2 Rav 4 or Honda CRV MK2 are cool for N2,5m

Pathfinder? Too common, Murano - not looking rugged enough for a good offroading Acura MDX -will make me spend too much on fuel! What of a 2004 4Runner?

4-cylinder Petrol Toyota 4 Runner would be 2003 or earlier. I want 2004.
