You have many good choices in this category. They are:
Acura MDX
Cadillac XLR
Infiniti FX
Lexus RX
Lincoln Aviator
Mercedes-Benz M-class
Volkswagen Tourag
Volvo XC90

I was also thinking the MDX..but wasn't sure..

Cadillac XLR-----haven't seen this or know the price
Infiniti FX---have yet to see ONE used fx35
Lexus RX---in consideration
Lincoln Aviator--i don't like ford products no offense
Mercedes-Benz M-class--i've heard pure horror stories when it comes to the M class
Volkswagen Toureg--too expensive :)
Volvo XC90

i can only speak from experince in a 4.4 x5 with sports kit, but they are nearly exactly the same as the 3.0lt (bar the obvious :idea: ) and i was and still am amzed how it drives for a 4x4...trully amazing for a 2.5 ton vehicle.
BUT, i must say i would highly recomend the forrester xt *love* over the 3.0lt

I donno if anyone mentioned this to you or not... But do you KNOW what a V6 is, and what an INLINE 6 is?

X5 3.0's are INLINE 6 not V6...

I think there is a bit of a bias on this site, but i am along with the rest of you, X5 for sure.

My pops has a 4.4i X5 2001 and i think its one of the best SUVs i ever drove,when you drive it you actually forget that its a SUV cause it handles and pulls like a sports car.Someone mentioned the aviator,im probably gonna get flamed but i like that SUV alot,it has alot of style.

ROCKETMAN 01-10-2004 11:47 PM

Yeah, my mistake. I meant to say Cadillac "SRX".

Acura MDX $50,300-$55,600
BMW X5 $58,400-$71,300
Cadillac SRX $52,250-$60,930
Infiniti FX $52,700-$60-,200
Lexus RX $49,900-$62,190
Mercedes M $51,900-$67,400
VW Touareg $52,100-$60,550
Volvo XC90 $54995-$61,995

ROCKETMAN 01-10-2004 11:53 PM

Winter Time
The X5 is a sweet ride...
We had one of the first in Canada...
She had a few bugs but i think they have been worked out by now...
The only thing was that going from a Grand Cherokee to the X5...the X5 sure didn't handle well in deep snow...
haha i overheard this guy talking about how he couldn't wait to take his X5 out in the snow....i couldn't help but laugh....

I can't tell you how many times i had that thing stuck!! but im sure with winter tires rather than all would be better....

Your thoughts?

Jammasterj 01-11-2004 12:16 AM

P.S. man did that thing handle well!!
it drove like a sports moved like a bat out of hell....
mind you that was the 4.4 and the quad exaust sounded great!!
it just had this grunt to it that i will never forget
