We need a new car. I currently own a Land Rover Discovery and it’s just the biggest POS I’ve ever owned. The wife, however, wants to seriously consider a Land Rover LR4 because she’s heard they are “better” mechanically. Besides the issues I’ve had with it, I just don’t see the need for an over-priced luxury SUV that’s going to haul kids, all the crap, and get covered in food and snot. Lastly, there’s only one Land Rover dealer within hundreds of miles of me and I’m not thrilled with them.
We have 3 kids left at home, so we need something large. The wife won’t consider a mini van and wants an SUV. I’m leaning toward a Honda Pilot or maybe a Toyota Highlander. I’m also looking at 2-4 year old used cars rather than new due to frugality (aka cheapness) on my part.
Any recommendations for a decent used SUV? I take good care of my cars and typically get $200K+ out of them. That’s what I’m hoping for. Any advice on what would be a good compromise for the Land Rover smitten wife?
