Best 2008 Suv To Buy ((INSTALL))


These awards identify the best vehicle choices for safety within size categories during a given year. Larger, heavier vehicles generally afford more protection than smaller, lighter ones. Thus, a small car that qualifies for an award might not protect its occupants as well as a bigger vehicle that doesn't earn the award.




best 2008 suv to buy



None of these Porsche Cayenne year models have deal-breaking problems and should all be safe to purchase. The 2003, 2007, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 models have no complaints whatsoever, so these are your best bets.


Next, we recommend the 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2014, 2015, and 2016 year models. All of these have had very few problems reported, and they normally appear after an average of 80,000 miles and are relatively cheap to fix. Costs vary between roughly $1,000 to $2,000.


We looked into price, reliability, features, and more to create this list of the best used SUVs under $10k on the market today. Take a look - some of the best used SUVs have gone mostly overlooked or forgotten.


When you shop for a new or used car, CoPilot helps you know more. We search every car at every dealer so you don't have to, we give you data and insights you won't find anywhere else, and we rank every car so it's easy to find the best car at the best price.


To determine our list of the best vehicles under $5,000, we cross-referenced a broad range of reliability and quality scores, evaluations by vehicle testers, thousands of long-term reports and reviews from owners and factored in our own long-term experiences with these vehicles as new and used cars.


Although we can generally provide guidance on which models may be the best value or the most reliable, we cannot make any guarantees about how individual cars will perform. We did the research, but we still recommend you investigate your choices further before purchase and, as indicated above, pre-purchase inspections are recommended.


On paper, this is a tie between the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350de plug-in hybrid diesel, and the just-arriving new BMW X1 xDrive25e, both of offer 353mpg on the combined WLTP fuel economy test. Of course, that relies on you carefully charging up all the time and making the most of their electric driving abilities. For real-world economy, your best bets at the Toyota RAV4 (especially the plug-in hybrid version), the Mazda CX-5 SkyActiv-D, and at the smaller scale, the Peugeot 2008, which can hit 47mpg in petrol form, and an official 65mpg in diesel form.


Everyone wants an SUV right now, and car makers are falling over themselves to bring new tall-and-chunky models to the market as quickly as they can. Here are the best new SUVs on sale in the UK right now.


Common problems found on the 2008 Jeep Wrangler include computer failures, steering issues, and engine problems. Overall, the issues found on the Wrangler are serious and cost more money to fix than other SUVs from 2008.


A well-maintained 2008 Jeep Wrangler should last around 200,000 miles, which is about 150,000 miles less than other off-road SUVs like the Toyota FJ Cruiser. Regular annual maintenance costs are much higher than rivals, according to Repair Pal, at $627 per year.


Most 2008 Wrangler models will have over 100,000 miles, so buyers should be prepared to replace items including the alternator for $600, engine oil pan costing $500, and the brake booster which costs $450.


The only engine available in the 2008 Wrangler is the average 3.8L V6, which makes 202 horsepower and gets up to 18 MPG combined. Performance is average, taking 7.5 seconds to go from 0-60 MPH, and the towing capacity is up to 3,500 pounds.


The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is classified as a midsize SUV, but is smaller than competitors including the Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot. Passenger room is cramped in the backseats of the Wrangler, even with the larger 4-door model.


The most common owner-reported complaints to Consumer Reports involving the 2008 Highlander include issues with the in-car electronics, such as the backup camera image flickering and the CD player locking up. Complaints for minor engine issues range from failed engine belts and idler pulleys to required software updates. Reports of significant engine trouble include required cylinder-head replacement.


The 2008's interior is even more impressive, with a design and quality that puts most rivals to shame. Flourishes like the piano keys in the middle of the dashboard and the latest version of Peugeot's i-Cockpit look beautiful, quality is excellent and there are lots of surfaces finished in soft materials instead of scratchy plastics. Only the Mazda CX-30 comes close for quality at this price.


There's lots of equipment here too, even on the basic Active Premium trim, which gets alloy wheels and air conditioning. Top GT-badged cars look sporty thanks to bigger wheels and a black roof, and get lots of technology, but look expensive next to rivals. A 2008 in GT Premium spec with the middle petrol engine costs several thousand pounds more than the equivalent Captur.


The new platform underpinning the 2008 and 208 supports petrol and all-electric power, and we've reviewed the e-2008 EV separately. Sticking with combustion engines, there are 99bhp and 128bhp versions of a 1.2-litre PureTech petrol, while a 153bhp version and a diesel engine have previously been offered. The best choice is the 128bhp petrol. It's capable of over 50mpg and offers all the performance most drivers will need with plenty of refinement. Handling is neat and secure too, and while all 2008s are front-wheel drive, there's a clever traction control system available called Advanced Grip Control to help keep you going in slippery conditions.


  • We'd call the Escape a little truck among small SUVs. Its new styling deliberately invokes Ford's larger, truck-based Expedition and Explorer sport-utilities. Escape's ride height and seating position are a bit higher than competitors such as the Honda CR-V, and it can tow up to 3,500 pounds, which is substantially more than most other vehicles in the class. Yet the Ford Escape still delivers the advantages of unit-body, car-based competitors such as the Honda CR-V. Its smooth ride and agile handling make for enjoyable driving, and its compact dimensions make the Escape easy to park. The base four-cylinder is adequate for all-purpose driving while the V6 offers quicker acceleration performance. All variants, including the V6 and Escape Hybrid, deliver some of best EPA mileage ratings in the class. All, including the gas-electric Hybrid, are offered with either front- or all-wheel drive. For the most part, the Hybrid drives just like a conventional gas-only Escape. It's a well-executed package. It offers better fuel economy and lower emissions but demands little additional effort or knowledge from the driver. The new 2008 Ford Escape still provides comfortable seating for four, or five in a pinch, but with noticeably more headroom than in pre-2008 models. Folding the rear seats opens a good sized cargo area with a flat floor, and space behind the seat surpasses that in the trunk of the typical sedan. Interior storage options have improved considerably. The finish is more upscale and pleasing, and feature function and switches are among the best. Safety features that were extra-cost options on lower-trim models are now standard across the board, including Ford's Roll Stability Control system. Escape now sets the class benchmark for safety features. There's a Ford Escape model for most tastes and needs. They range from a decently equipped, four-cylinder Escape XLS 2WD for under $19,000 to the leather-upholstered Escape V6 Limited 4WD, with premium audio, navigation, dual-zone auto climate control and reverse sensing for about $30,000. Dollar for feature, Ford Escape prices have dropped considerably the past few years. The premium for the Escape Hybrid has also decreased. It's now less than $2,000 more than a comparably equipped Limited. The Ford Escape remains one of the more appealing vehicles in its class, regardless of price, and certainly one of the better values. Those shopping for a small SUV should put it on their short list, especially those who appreciate its big-truck styling. Full ReviewThe Ford Escape has been thoroughly updated for 2008, reinforcing the character and appeal that have made it America's perennial best-selling small sport-utility vehicle. The improvements nearly cover the spectrum, and inject a new level of refinement. The Escape's standard safety features are upgraded significantly for 2008.
