but we're putting the "L(ove)" in our transportation and both happier for it.

I AGREE! I was looking for an SUV to replace my 2005 Lexus RX with 140K miles. Nothing really wrong with it, but ready for a change.

I test drove the new Rx and it felt solid, well built and boring. Beautiful car and DH asked how driving it was and I said "it's fine".

Next I test drove an Acura MDX. It had paddle shifters, was peppier, solid and fine. *yawn*

Drove the Ford Explorer Limited edition. Already have an F150 and the Ford was solid but too trucky feeling.

Onto the Infinity - who knows model # since they change constantly. Mid-sized SUV. It was nice, cameras everywhere, roomy third row seating. Okay, guess I will get one of these. Went home and to do more research. Reviewers said it wasn't well build and lamented they should have bought a Lexus. Hmmmmmmmm.

I had resisted Germany engineering due to the troubles they have had with reliability. Went to drive the Audi Q5 turbo. WOW! IT WAS FUN! I loved it! Bought on the spot and got 7 years, 70K mile warranty. We'll see how it goes, but sure is fun to drive!
