Quote from: NomisR on May 03, 2022, 06:30:42 PMIt doesn't have to make sense to us I guess. When my wife got her car, her original criteria was a roomy 3rd row, which I suggested a Minivan, but she doesn't want a minivan, so I was suggesting a bunch of competitors to the Honda Pilot which she concluded that there would've been no reason for us to replace the Pilot with those car because there was no improvement or change, it would've been replacing the car for the sake of replacing which I agreed 100%. Then she narrowed it down to Lexus only because she wanted a luxury brand but she didn't want an Acura because she drove a Honda vehicle all her life (Civic, Element, RDX and Pilot), and she didn't want a German due to the cost of repair, and Lexus are suppose to be reliable. She started at the RX450h which had the 3rd row but the 3rd row was tiny so we crossed it off, she finally decided on the GX and started looking at youtube videos on offroading and overlanding. I figured, it's not a loss for me since I gain an offroad vehicle to drive. But then she decided that she only want the mid range model with a Mark Levinson audio, so it took me forever to hunt one down with a good price so here we are today with her wanting me to find a way to add surround camera, crawl control and MTS to the damn thing..

MTS can be handy, but again its more of a crutch for bad driving. The 4Runner has both. It can't do anything the Land Cruiser couldn't do, which had neither.

Quote from: MrH on September 04, 2022, 09:56:39 AMIt's sad you're getting 26.5 mpg. The Outback gets 25-26 mpg on the highway too, but it only makes 260 hp vs 473 hp
