I'm looking for a SUV/Crossover that has a third row of seats, gets reasonably good gas mileage and rides like a car and not a truck. I also refuse to buy a minivan. I would also like something with good resale value but I don't think I can afford a Honda Pilot or Toyota Highlander. Thanks! Jennifer

Shelly LoCascio, Dealer Principal  at Irwin Lincoln Mercury Mazda Jennifer, There are many choices for you and I'm not familiar with all of them. I would suggest you check out Mazda CX9. I know they are having a promotion this month or Mercury Mountaineer. The Mazda is a crossover and the Mountaineer is a midsize suv. Shelly

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Jennifer, 3 rows of seats, rides like a car and gets good gas mileage. That is a tough list to fill. Guess it depends what you mean by good gas mileage. Here is a list of 3 rows of seat vehicles. I highly suggest you test drive each vehicle you are interested in and look up their specs online. Here is a very interesting website: www.littleseats.com They have the third row seat you can add to the following vehicles. -Mazda 3X9 -Ford Explorer -Chevy Tahoe -Honda CRV -Isuzu Trooper -Jeep Grand Cherokee -Jeep Wrangler -Toyota 4Runner -GMC Yukon _Ford Excursion -Hummer H3 -Dodge Durango -Hyundai Santa Fe -Toyota Highlander -Nissan Xterra -Honda Element I vote for the Honda CRV. I just LOVE this car! All My Best, Amy
