We picked the PT Cruiser. It is the wife's car. The deal came with a "We Owe" and that was an installed Remco pump. It tows real nice. We have the US Gear brake system.
I think you will find the variety of likes and dislikes the same as pizza.

Chevy Silverado 1500 FWD and Honda CR-V AWD. The Chevy is a little heavy and hard to park when you get there, so unless we're bringing a motorcycle in the back of it, we take the CR-V. It's AWD works great and it has good ground clearance.

Honda's CR-V is good. Lighter, roomier, and better mpg than Jeep's Liberty. AWD will get you through most highway gunk, but if you want to do serious off-roading you'll want the Jeep.

We love our Chevy HHR with automatic. Just put it in neutral and pull one fuse, I installed a rocker switch instead. Lots of room, around 3k pounds and 30+ MPG. I wouldn't know it was there without the backup camera.

We tow our 07 Ford Ranger extended cab 4X4. No modifications other then the Neutral Tow Kit light and computer reprogram.

Tows very nicely!
