My wife and I will start a family in the next year or so, and we have 2 sports cars so 1 will be replaced with an SUV. I've been researching the VW Touareg and really like how solid it is and its safety. I saw the Torrent/Equinox but am not impressed w/the Chinese 3.4 old-tech v6. The sheetmetal seemed thin as well. Which brings me to the Acadia/Saturn Outlook. I saw the Acadia at the car show and liked it, although the materials inside aren't as luxurious as the Touareg. I even like the Acura MDX, but think it's overpriced. I'd like to give GM a second look. If I get 17 mpg for excellent safety then that's fine with me. I keep my cars at least 10 years/140,000+ miles, so am concerned with long-term reliability. Do you think the Acadia is built to last that long? Are your SUVs rattling? Is the sheetmetal rigid or thin like the Toyotas/Hondas?
