That's primarily why I have, and will continue to drive an older one.tim-x wrote: ↑ Don't get me wrong, I think those vehicles are sweet. I'd love one. I just couldn't justify the extra cost unfortunately and I wouldn't be happy with some mid level crossover pretending to be a full sized SUV so I went with the practical choice. To me it's all or nothing, and with the price of vehicles I actually want these days, I went with the "nothing" option (minivan and econo car for a family of 5).
And that's why I continue to recommend used Armadas in this cases as they are a great value if you want the full size SUV. 2 to 3 year old top trims can be picked up for $40k-$50k and last another 10 years easily. The power train is bulletproof.
