My Ford Explorer SUV is 10 years old. I want to replace it, preferably with an all-wheel drive four door safe car, one with high visibility and low gas consumption. Any suggestions?

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Leona, As soon as you add all-wheel drive to the equation, the fuel consumption goes up. This being said, I drive a Honda CRV and get about 26 mpg on average. For an SUV, this works for me. It has great visibility and handles really well on all kind of roads. It also is very comfortable for the folks in the back seat, and has tons of room in the way back. I just love this vehicle and would invite you to take one for a test drive and see if it meets your wants and needs.
