My wife needed somehting bigger than the 02 LG ZX3 she was driving so we went looking for somehting awd, a little bit of ground clearance (moving to upstate NY next spring) and a lot more room... We have two kids and a German Shepherd and maybe a 3rd kid in a couple years so a back seat that can fit 3 car seats was also mandatory...

Well we found this for a REALLY good price...














Sure it'll take a hit on the gas mileage, but my wife doesn't get on the gas pedal except when it's an emergency so she's getting about 21-22mpg highway... It's completely loaded as well with Navigation, hill descent, heated seats, climate zones, and a whole bunch of other stuff I haven't played with yet...


ps. It's faster 0-60 than my SVTF...[unsure] [80?]

Looks great! A friend here at work has one almost exactly like that but its never left the pavement. I can't help teasing him with that line from the Pixar Cars movie with the Hummer that was afraid to go off road. (snicker)

Everything is faster than an SVTf from 0-60; they're just not meant for launching.

I was hoping to see a Suby wagon of some sort, but hey if the price is right, a Bimmer is always nice.

no doubt its a good looking suv. not to burst your bubble, but my mom looked at the x5 when she was lookin at getting a new suv. she also looked at the xc90, ml 350, and q7the x5 was first off the list, she now drives a baby blue ml 350. but hey, theyre both german so its all good, haha

Looked at the xc90 as well... didn't consider the ml350 or the q7 though... We were looking for an SUV under $20k w/ awd, and the ability to fit 3 car seats in a row in the back seat.. This ended up being a bit of a bonus b/c we got a realllly good deal on it... we only ended up paying 13,500 after the trade in...

That's funny, my buddy just got the EXACT same car, color, package and everything. He got it for something like 13k under retail.

Very nice ride
