For that kind of money you can get a Lexus RX350.

Isn't the Lexus RX the same seating capacity as an Explorer and a Pilot?

It's not my business but I just love our Lexus.

Both are great since they took the Explorer off of a frame. Can't go wrong.

Bought the new pathfinder last month for my wife. We love it. Good bit of room with the third row up, able to fit adults in the third row. Very good feature with it is that you can have a car seat in the second row and still slide it forward to gain access to the third row. We really like it.

Scooby, do you mind telling what model and features and what kind of deal you got?

Pathfinder is nice but supposedly has terrible torque steer.

You can always get better deals once the redesigned model year hits the market. Instant depreciation of the older models.

Those stickers are ridiculous. You could get a CPO MDX for much less.

my wife has had a 2010 and 2012 pilot. they restyled it a little in 2012, so i would not expect a change in a few years. we have had no touble with either one, very low maintenance. The only reason we bought a new one is they offered us a really good trade in on the 2012. i would buy another one.

Let reliability be the deciding factor if you're torn. Consumer Reports rates the Pilot as much more reliable.

I don't understand why people spend this much on a vehicle. $40K for a Ford or Honda is ridiculous.

I was just in the market for a SUV and we decided to go with a used 2011 V6 Kia Sorrento. I just couldn't bring myself to spending what most spend on a car. Yeah, I'm rolling the dice reliability wise with the Kia, but I know for sure I won't spend anywhere close to $20K repairing the vehicle while I own it.
