Re: Which SUV to pick?

The FX was the last SUV I looked at, it was really between the Audi and BMW for me but one day I was driving by an Infiniti dealership, never drove or sat in an FX, only seen them and thought they were sexy so I decided to stop in. That same night I signed the papers and two days later I picked up my FX. It happened that fast. Like I said, the truck speaks for itself and if you look on line, I'm positive all the independent reviews would support.

Re: Which SUV to pick?

The new one looks awesome with the Pump

Instantly makes the old one look dour and stale.

Re: Which SUV to pick?

BMW ftw!

2nd place goes to Audi

the RX to me isn't even in the same league, hubs works for Lexus so I've been in a whole lot of them! The GX would be a more like kind ride if luxury is the goal, the RX is a bit bland and boring,IMO!

Cordishead is on a distinguished road
I agree with giggitygiggity. I've been shopping for one of these suv's for the past couple months with the wife. The fx50 is bad***. The Lexus handles like a wk without any sway bars, but the interior is nice. You also see the Lexus everywhere. The Audi is slow and underwhelming. The mercedes is small on the inside and looks like a minivan to me. The cayenne is small on the inside and you cant get performance without overpaying ( and i still cant get over the fact that the cup holders are sized for cans of redbull or shots of espresso and nothin else).

Good luck actually finding an x5 with that engine for 58000, all of those models in cleveland start at 70000. The best part about owning a BMW is you have a nice loaner when your ride is in the shop. Awesome performance but with that comes, as my BMW mechanic would say, 2 million moving parts. I love BMW but I would get the infinity.

Best bang for the buck is the fx50, hands down.

I agree 100% with you too, ive always hated the RX's, mainly because there are so many of them. My brother had a GX, but sold it because gas was high when he had it, i love the LX my dad has, but really, they are glorified Toyotas, the LX is a more luxury version of the Land Cruiser, and the GX a Land Cruiser Prado....
