I'm not a tree hugger
Pros: Easy to drive
Cons: I have to pay for the Adblue. MB Service is a ripoff.Blutec is the way to go. Quiet diesel, good power, no exhaust fumes destroying our lungs. Benz is a good looking classy SUV thatyour never ashamed to hand the keys to the valet at Bev Hills best eateries.
A Superior Vehicle!
Pros: It fills all of our needs and can handle 7 persons!
Cons: I liked everything !We were shocked! Both my wife and I love to fish and we needed a vehicle that could provide us the pulling and towing capabilities that we needed. We also needed a vehicle that was comfortable on various types of roads as we fish in Canada and have to use some lesser used roads! Its been a dream for us and can be for you as well. Its also easy to get into for us older folks. Don't expect to get 30 miles per gallon either but all your creature comforts are there for the taking and if I don't see you on the road, I'm sure your outside waxing it!
Great car for people who like technology
Pros: Voice controls
Cons: Road maps for navigation aren't as up to date as I'd likeNot only a great ride in all kinds of weather, it allows almost everything to be controlled by voice. You can make calls, adjust navigation or climit control and even change radio stations without taking your hands off the wheel. The fit and finish are very good and not a squeak or rattle exists in almost 90K miles.
All in all an impressive alternative for the plain vanilla minivan.
Pros: turbo charger, comfort seats, handling, everything
Cons: nothingthis is the most exciting car i have ever owned and i have driven 4WD from aspen co., to nyc, but not in the luxury and handling of this RDX. i told the salesman that i didnt think this car would handle snow and ice, i was wrong...it is a tough one especially with its turbo charger. i will always live in an ACURA from now on.
Audi Q7 TDI
Pros: Looks good.
Cons: Refueling problems over and overI am OVER this vehicle. You cannot count on being able to fuel the vehicle because of varying fuel pump nozzle sizes at stations. A bar in the filler neck prevents fueling if the nozzle is too small. I use my pocket knife to release it now. The radio won't hold presets. The rear camera works sometimes --even in park and drive (forward). The Goodyear tires are very noisy. Driven 10K miles in 7 months so I have experienced the problems.
Won't buy again.
Pros: I like the control panel. everything is at your fingertips
Cons: It would be nice if the back seats reclined a little.This was our first (and last) bmw. After owning a 500 sl, i fell in love with the german cars. I like the fact when you touch the gas pedal the car goes and it goes fast.. smooth and comfortable ride. so when we got the X5 I was hoping for the same perfomance. The problem is when i press on the gas pedal, it stops to think, should I go now or wait a few... One time my husband almost got into an accident thinking he could quickly cross, which he did but the other car had to stop sharp. I have taken it to the dealership and they find nothing wrong with it.. I use the premium gas with no cleaners and still no performance. If I wanted a more efficient car I would have looked at others. I wanted a car with some pick up and go, not with mine. They also have a storage area under the trunk cover. You hold up the cover and their is nothing that holds into to place. Kind of hard packing things in there with one hand holding it up, kind of like you were working on under the hood and had to hold the hood while working on it.. they didn't think that one out.
