Looking for feedback: finally ditching the minivan and downsizing close to Park Ridge. I think we have narrowed it down to the Chevy Equinox or Kia Sorento. Anyone have experience with either and have anything to help me decide? Thanks!

We just did the same thing about 9 months ago and went with the Equinox. It’s the most favorite car I’ve ever had

Stefanie, how long have you had it? At first we were going to do the Acadia but we haven’t used the third seat of the van for months and I want better gas mileage!

My neighbors just bought their 2nd equinox. So I would assume they loved the first one. I think both are good- gotta test drive to see what you like.

We've had our Kia Sorrento for a couple years. It's a great car.

Kias and Hyundai’s are garbage. I have several friends who are Kia/Hyundai techs, and all I see all day long are videos of those cars with engine knocks, horrible electrical problems, etc.

I had my Sorrento for 11 years. Now I have an Optima. Loved my Sorrento.

Go drive the VW Tiguan. The SE level trim had everything I needed (heated seats, cameras, Apple CarPlay, blind spot mirrors, but no sunroof or auto lift gate). I have a small 3rd row but you don’t have to use it. It has a vent for the back seat which is rare in a small SUV. Drives like a dream. We also have a Subaru which is our best car in the snow and has great sightlines.

I had my Hyundai for 12 years and my kia for 5 so far. Not garbage.
