Volvo XC90 V8 is the perfect reliable SUV but if thats not an option for you. Id go with the Santa Fe it will last longer

Hi Kylan, Thank you very much for the reply. I have been looking at the Volvo XC90 but I discarded it because of the harder to get and more expensive car parts and maintenance. Could you please explain why the Santa Fe would be the better options and why it would last longer? Thanks

Hi Ed, I have been looking into these brands for some time. I have discarded Toyoto because the Rav 4 is too small and Honda CR-V is also kind of small and I don't really like it. It left me with Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe, Volvo XC90 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee III. The Jeep is kind of rare and it's parts are not that easy or cheap to find. The same aplies for the Volvo - parts are a bit pricy and there is not that big variety of them. So I finally had two options - the Sorento or Santa Fe. I think I am leaning more towards the more comfort Santa Fe although the Sorento is better for off road. Please share your thoughts. Which one would be more adequate for my riding (mostly urban with some dirt road hikes rarely) and which one would be more reliable (less repairs). Thank you!

Hi again Edd, In my country they don't import the Hylander and Pilot. The cars from my list just were complying with the requirements that I had and fall in the corresponding price range. Is the Grand Cherokee III so bad? If you had to choose between the Cherokee and the Santa Fe which one would it be and why?
