Re: New Car Lust is Back

Neither the Tribeca or Toureg would be a good choice. They're over-priced and over-hyped. The Lexus RX330 is a very nice SUV but it's in a different league than the others mentioned even the Acura. I hope to own the equivelant of the RX330 when I retire but if I were to buy it now, i'd probably have to postpone retirement for several years. I assume you would too which is why it's not a good option.

Precisely. Not a good trade in my mind.

Re: New Car Lust is Back

Have to admit, I like the CX-7's looks and the price isn't bad. I don't like it's need for premium gas, however :P

I've been considering a new car for a couple of years myself ... most of the sedans out there are boring ... maybe I should look at the crossovers..

Re: New Car Lust is Back

I like my little ole Mazdaspeed Miata for the weekend. It's a turbo car that came out of the factory at 145whp. I've played with it and now it is a little over 200whp, fun for a 2500lb car. The wife got a 2006 Impala this year. I primarily drive my Z71 pickup, don't know why. I've got a 2001 Road King Classic in the garage so I have most of my toys for retirement...still I need a boat..humm.

Anyway, I think the turbo CX-7 would be fun to drive.

Re: New Car Lust is Back

The CX-7 is a good looking car.* *But from looking at photos, it looks like my Prius has as much room or maybe even more, and the specs say I get more than twice the mileage.

I think of the Prius as a small SUV without 4WD. The hatchback design gives great access and folding the rear seats down gives lots of room for hauling stuff. I can get a bicycle in the back without removing the wheels. In fact I can fold the seats down and sleep in the back.
