What SUV do you have and are you happy with it?

I want a new DD - I love my Escy but want something more fun to drive. I'm looking at the M-Class and the X5's.

Not a BMW fan so no ideas on thoses. I personally like the M class MB because I think they are better built than the BMW, but I am sure there are others that would disagree. I had a SLK that was a great car. Easy to work on, decent prices on line when needed, and a great forum over at benzworld.org. I don't think you can go wrong with a M class.

Currently we have a MKX FWD and a Flex AWD. Both are good vehicles so far - the MKX rides better than the old Lexus RX we had. Plus I like getting cheaper parts and service. Now I am not a huge fan of how either looks - both the MB and BMW look better, but since I am older I was looking for a ride and other perks for a decent price. I like the looks of the Ford Edge better, but the ride quality of the MKX is a bit better.

The Flex is a fantastic family cruiser - it is like owning your own small bus. And my wife wanted as a grandchild hauler. Again, not pretty, but very functional - and extremely quiet and comfortable.

Good luck with your search.

I'm liking the '13 Escape or the '13 CR-V. Gotta think MPG these days.
I just bought a new Outback but it might not provide the kind of "fun" you want.

Yukon Denali and we love it!!! We can't wait to buy a 2014/2015 version, now that we found out its going to be truck based again!!! To me the Denali is the muscle car of SUVs. The exhaust on my Denali sounded better than my SS before we upgraded the pipes, and it moves down the road to be as big as it is.

I have only seen one of those and thought it must have been the Canadian version of the equinox. I remember when they sold Chevelles in Canada as pontiacs.

I have a Toyota 4Runner. The only time it's fun to drive is if you happen to drive it off a cliff putting it out of it's own mysery. I am waiting to see what GM has coming up with the new full size trucks. It's looking very interesting.....

Do they have anything coming in the rapidly expanding mid-size market that you are aware of?
