A lot of people have said they want an SUV for the extra storage space. The idea that SUVs have more space is largely a myth. My girlfriend Bonnie's Jeep Grand Cherokee has only marginally more cargo space than my tiny little VW GTI. The additional ground clearance of the jeep means the wheel wells protrude less into the passenger compartment, which adds a few cubic feet, but honestly, it's not a whole lot.

This is really important to consider if fuel efficiency is an important factor for you. A small hatchback built with the goal of being a gas-saver will hold *almost* as much as an SUV, but at half the fuel cost. Seriously! A fuel-efficient four-cylinder car will usually drive 30-40 miles on a gallon of gas (MPG). An SUV, especially one from the early 2000s, is more likely to be in the 16-22mpg range.
