Re: 2011 Touareg

I'd say a little bigger than the JGC. The Cayenne feels smaller because of those front seat hand grips, but the Touareg is pretty good for a 5 seater. I think the back seat moves back a few inches...

Re: 2011 Touareg

I had two guys come buy and look at a used Mercedes I am selling. One of them happened to be from Dubai. He instantly recognized the 2011 QX from the side as the 2010 Nissan Patrol and told me that...

Re: Cancelling Summit order.... Nor Cal

I would take a Summit over the Range Rover despite the nice materials in the Range Rover interior. I just think they are way overpriced for today's standards. Furthermore, I was sitting in one in NYC...

Re: If You Cancel a Summit Order What Would You Buy?

Re: If You Cancel a Summit Order What Would You Buy?

The new Touareg here in a America is a neutered version. I agree about the Lexus. I don't think the X5 is too far behind.

Re: If You Cancel a Summit Order What Would You Buy?

It is as capable if not more capable than the Summit off-road. It is based on a Patrol.
