Thread: School me: Lexus versus Mercedes ML350 CDI (or

School me: Lexus RX400h Mercedes ML350 CDI (or other?)


this being a thread a diesel versus a hybrid, really, really not interested in the diesel versus hybrid BS. just going to report any trolls to the mods and ignore because I’m really in getting some useful here.

I’m selling my A4 This is 95% because I’m to China for

8 months for work and use the extra money while (see this thread ), but 5% of me also feels like the A4 was not the car for me. I am a huge wagon fan, a Audi fan, a huge VAG a huge 1.8T fan, and a Euro fan, so please don’t come at me with VW hater BS. It’s not the right car for two 1) it’s too low and stiff for rough prairie roads, and 2) it’s a real beating inside the past two years and the interior isn’t up to the abuse. I go on 4-man ski trips

to the lake, camping trips, to the hardware store, and other things and the net result is that the is all scratched and scuffed and peeling and to hell. The bottom line is I need a car that’s TOUGHER, inside and out.

I’ll be buying this car on my return from China. I’ll book a flight back to a US city, buy my car there, drive it home. Cars are there.

I have the following

— Automatic. I do NOT want a daily driver, period. I my Boxster for that.

— AWD. I don’t care if it’s the best but I appreciate having it. We get brutal here and I think it’s an Don’t bust my balls, I a RWD Town Car 75% of the way to the North Pole.

SUV or lifted wagon. I regularly LOTS of crap, I like driving big cars, and I need the ride height. I’m of having to go 20 km/h down bumpy dirt roads and passed by all the trucks.

— I prefer luxury I will not discount Subarus or or VWs or anything else, but that’s my I recognize the value and superiority of a of non-luxury cars, but I’m a at heart.

— Good economy, as in diesel or hybrid, is a

— Maximum price is $25,000 USD. I would be comfortable at or about $20,000, but stretch a bit for an especially good Please do not ask if I can afford it or suggest I can’t. I am financially secure in all

Based on the above criteria, my top two are the RX400h and the ML350 CDI. seem to meet every one of my and they’re both cars I’ve driven and like a bit. Of the two, I’m a bit more towards the Lexus for the and the softer ride (we really, do have rough and bumpy here, especially in the winter). So, if with experience with of these wishes to chime in, love to hear what you to say.

If there are other suggestions, also willing to entertain

OK. deep breath. here
