"that gets decent gas milegae"
That's a funny statement.
Why do you exactly need an SUV? Do you live where it snows alot or do you drive offroad?
If you do, I'd consider NOT getting any sort of Ford or GM (guarunteed malfunctions)built vehicle. A Honda would be much better, considering they rarely malfuction and get *decent* mileage for a SUV.

haha yea forgot to mention i live in ohio, which gets a load of snow, and what i mean by decent gas mileage..well their are some SUV's that get better than others.

I would have to agree; the Honda CR-V gets relatively decent mileage, isn't obscenely large, and also does fairly well in crash tests.

the new ford escape is a hybrid that gets about 30 miles to the gallon i believe. if not, i'd probably go for a jeep. they get decent mileage too.

Do not get hybrids if your intention is to save money on gas. Hybrid versions of cars, such as the civic hybrid, esacpe hybrid, and prius, cost thousands more than their non hybrid counter parts, the civic, escape, and corolla. You would need to drive over 100k at $2/gallon for you to come out ahead in a hybrid, not to mention the possible additional costs of higher and more frequent repairs.
In addition, oil and gas is coming down, so they are even less cost efficient.
