I've been trying to decide what new car I should get. All these cars are in the ~30k range. I'd like to get an opinion from the money board on which yall think is the best value.

Also, it doesn't have to be a 2012 model.

I have $10,000 that I can put towards a down payment, hopefully looking to get under 4% interest rate. I can put around $450 towards monthly payments as well.

Thoughts?

The wife has a 2010 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4wd and she loves that truck. It is very well built and has been 100% reliable with no problems in two years. The new models are a lot more refined than ours.

I don't know much about the other two.

Good luck.

Cherokee is clearly the best looking of the three. I am guessing the others have been features.

You actually would compare a Jeep( which is really a dodge) to Acura and Infiniti?

A dodge compared to two luxury cars that have the highest ratings

I would favor the Infiniti slightly over Acura but both are excellent vehicles

Jeeps are no longer jeeps they are dodges with a jeep emblem

I wouldn't touch the Jeep. They are not very reliable after a few yrs. as for the Acura or Infinity. Basically comes down to do u you like Ho da or Nissan better? Personally, I like the exterior of the Infinity, but its hard to beat an Acura's interior.

You should check out a Honda Crosstour, wife just got one, loves it. Under 23k on an 2012 EX, 0.9% for 60 mo. financing. Keep your 10k.

The correct answer is to get a well cared-for 2007-ish model. Costs tons less.

If you look used, don't even consider the Jeep.

Thanks for the input everyone. If I do get a 2007ish model, then I won't get a Jeep.

JGC. Looks great, great interior, great options. I wish my wife would have liked the JGC else it'd be sitting my driveway. Went with an MDX instead.

I have an Acura and an Infiniti, and would consider the Jeep over the other two. Of the two jap models, I prefer my Infiniti.

This assumes you're looking at new, or near new.

Yeah, near new. I just stayed working, young, single, and no dependents so I can throw some cash at this. Obviously, I know cars aren't good investments, so I want to be wise with my money. And we are settling the estate so I'm due for $10,000.

Get the overland Jeep and you won't miss anything that the others have. Or get the Laredo with Leather/Backup cam and save $$

I have an 05 JGC Limited and it has been a fantastic car. Most people that ride in it are impressed by the condition and the feel.

What are these comments about jeep being a Dodge?

I like the Acura ZDX the most....gorgeous design.

I have an 03 Infiniti FX35. I love that thing! I like it even more than my 09 BMW 328i convertible! I didn't expect that to happen.

We are getting rid of the convertible soon and I want something new and am considering another Infiniti for sure!

The Acura gives you all the luxurious features of a midsized sports utility vehicle and handles like a Indy car.

Buy an AZN car and you'll never be disappointed by engine trouble....buy American and get to know your mechanic.
