Top 10 Possible non-lemon Small SUVs

Potential clients with “lemon law” related claims usually contact my office with bad news about problems with their vehicles. Even the last two previous blog posts are about unreliable and problem cars. This post, however, is about good cars. At least, according to Jon Alain Guzik, the editor-at large of Yahoo! Autos.

Guzik’s conclusion is based on mileage, looks, and price tag. If I were Guzik and was in a position to make my list of top ten small SUVs, my criteria would most likely be different. It would be based on quality, numbers of consumer complaints, and price.

Guzik’s top 10 small SUVS are:

2008 Land Rover LR2

2008 Saturn Vue

2007 Jeep Patriot Sport

2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited

2007 Acura RDX

2007 Ford Edge SE

2008 Subaru Tribeca

2007 Honda CR-V LX

2007 Toyota RAV4 Sport

2007 Mazda CX-7 Sport
