ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

If you're searching for a family car that won't cost a fortune, you've come to the right place. We've rounded up eight of our favorite slightly used family SUVs that come equipped with 3-row seating and a manufacturer-backed certified pre-owned (CPO) warranty for under $25,000. And while we understand that many drivers have reservations about buying a used car, the certified pre-owned warranties on these SUVs will ensure that your running costs stay as low as possible for a long time to come.

2011 Buick Enclave

The Buick Enclave is a popular luxury crossover with standard 3-row seating, a powerful V6 engine and high-end appointments both inside and out. Although you'll have to go back to 2011 to find a certified pre-owned Enclave that costs under $25,000, AutoTrader.com currently has more than 150 such vehicles available nationwide. Opt for a mid-level CXL model and you'll get a wide range of high-end comfort and convenience features such as leather upholstery, heated front seats, a backup camera and 19-inch alloy wheels.

2012 Chevrolet Traverse

Think of the Chevrolet Traverse as a more mainstream version of the luxurious Buick Enclave. While that means standard features aren't as abundant as they are in the Enclave, it also means that Traverse pricing is more affordable. The result is that you don't have to go back far to find a CPO example cheaper than $25,000, as AutoTrader.com has more than 500 different 2012 Traverse models in this price range. We especially suggest opting for a Traverse LT, since it features a long list of standard equipment such as 18-in alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, a remote ignition and a power driver's seat.

2011 Dodge Durango

The Dodge Durango is a popular 3-row SUV that offers a roomy interior, a large cargo area and muscular V6 or V8 power. We especially recommend the 2011 model, as there are more than 70 examples currently on AutoTrader.com across the country with a certified pre-owned warranty for around $25,000 or under. We also recommend searching for a high-end Crew model to get impressive luxury extras, such as a backup camera, keyless ignition, rear park assist, dual-power front seats and a power tailgate.

2011 Ford Explorer

The latest version of Ford's popular Explorer is a 3-row crossover that offers a roomy interior, handsome styling, lots of technology and a wide variety of powertrains that range from fuel efficient to muscular. With those attributes, it's easy to see why a certified pre-owned 2011 Explorer is one of our top recommendations, especially when you consider that there are around 100 examples currently on AutoTrader.com within this price range. We especially recommend an upscale Explorer Limited or a well-equipped XLT model, which can include such high-end extras as keyless ignition, remote start, leather upholstery and Ford's MyFord Touch infotainment system.

2012 Honda Pilot

Although new models are starting to grow a bit long in the tooth, used versions of the Honda Pilot are some of the best deals in the 3-row crossover market. AutoTrader.com is currently showing more than 450 certified pre-owned 2012 Pilot models for under $25,000, including many high-end EX and EX-L versions. We especially recommend the top-end EX-L trim level, because it includes a power liftgate, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a backup camera and more.

2012 Mazda CX-9

Although the Mazda CX-9 is sometimes forgotten by shoppers interested in an excellent new family crossover, we think it's one of the best models on the market. In addition to a powerful V6 and excellent handling, the CX-9 also boasts a roomy interior and a lot of features, especially in Grand Touring trim. The Grand Touring trim includes heated front seats, leather upholstery, automatic headlights and 3-zone automatic climate control. Best of all, there are currently more than 100 different certified pre-owned CX-9 models available nationwide on AutoTrader.com for $25,000 or under.

2013 Nissan Pathfinder

The newly redesigned Nissan Pathfinder came out for the 2013 model year, and it quickly became one of our favorite 3-row crossovers on sale. It includes excellent gas mileage, a roomy interior and a lot of standard features, not to mention reasonable pricing. We're especially impressed with that pricing because there are currently about 75 different 2013 Pathfinder models available on AutoTrader.com for under $25,000 with a certified pre-owned warranty, which isn't bad for the brand-new body style of a desirable family vehicle.

2012 Toyota Highlander

For many people, the Toyota Highlander is the gold standard of the 3-row crossover world. We happen to agree that it's one of the best models on sale, which is why we heartily recommend checking out one of the 300 different certified pre-owned 2012 models currently listed on AutoTrader.com nationwide for around $25,000 or under. We especially recommend the SE model, which features a power liftgate, leather upholstery, a power sunroof, heated front seats, a power driver's seat and Bluetooth audio. But even if you opt for a base-level Highlander, you'll still get a reliable family crossover with ample interior room for cargo and passengers.
