Recommendations for second hand SUV purchase

By iat7b

Hi folks!

i am thinking 'bout getting an suv for usual chores in town. I don't expect much usage other than daily commuting to work, maybe a bit long distance drive during the weekends. No plan for offroading. Only reason for the suv is space and relative safety.

Here's the catch. I am planning a second hand cheap suv. Upper ceiling is 25000 QAR.

Question to you all: which model, make should be considered on the basis of following considerations:

1. Reliability.

2. Parts availability.

3. Servicing cost and typical wait period at servicing centers.

4. Resale value. (Not that much left to begin with i suppose. But, considering an expat life, have to think of moving on at some point).

5. What mileage should be the cutoff in my purchasing consideration? I mean, what is the maximum mileage i should consider acceptable? 150k? 200k?

thanks is advance.
