Looking at new vehicles

Recommended Posts

Well, I think I will have to replace the old car within a year... it's getting old, rusty, and it's starting to slowly become unreliable. It's a 98 Ford Contour... it lived a long life I think... lol And it's going to suck to have another vehicle payment since we are making payments on a new vehicle as it is... :P

 

I was thinking of another car, but would much rather something that has 4-wheel drive... and I don't want another truck since we already have a big F350 monster. So I guess it will be a SUV/Crossover type in either a diesel or hybrid.

 

Right now I checked out the Lexus RX 400h, BMW X5 xDrive35d, Audi Q7 TDI, Mercedes ML320, Yukon Hybrid, Chev Tahoe Hybrid.

 

Anyone own one of these vehicles? Opinions?

We don't own any of those, but we just got a Ford Edge last year and we LOVE IT! It's a bit cheaper than the ones you're looking at, but it still feels pretty luxurious. We got the sync package (which is amazing) and you can also get a really awesome Nav system. It's worth a look I think!

I have the X5 and LOVE IT LOVE IT--You cannot beat the driving experience and can't go wrong with that car. It is nottoo big or too small and the handling is incredible. Prior to the X5 I had the ML500 (Mercedes) truck and HATED it. PLUS any model 2004 and newer they do not offer complimentary oil changes anymore--that SUX!! Ever since they merges with Daimler Chrysler--all service went downhill. The new C series are cute though!
