RDX: Value - $10k more for top end
Highlander: Agility - just too big
Outback: Very buggy infotainment
I really like the Outback Touring with 3.6, but just way too many issues with infotainment freezing, not operable, and no fix from Subaru well after a year. I had an 02 Outback which i loved. I then bought a 10 and it had design defect that made that model shake at highway speeds, took Subaru 1.5 years to come up multiple “fixes” that ultimately only partially addressed the problem that they jacked up a European spec legacy to make it a tall US Outback model. Anyways, that’s when I get my gen 2 Mo.
I looked at the following:
Highlander - Expensive in the trim I wanted and it has the ridiculous auto Stop/Start. I don't want or need 3 rows.
Lincoln MKX and Ford Edge - The Lincoln is a nice car, and Ford advertises more cargo room than The Murano, but in the real world, you can fit golf clubs crosswise in the Murano and you can't in either the MKX (Now the Nautilus) or the Edge. MKX had push button transmission, and Edge has very cheap interior and uncomfortable seats.
Kia Sorento - Total Sh*t Show, and laughingly, sticker was $49,000. They are idiots.
Honda Pilot - Looks like a mini-van, ugly interior, 3 rows and expensive.
Cadillac XT5 - Looks nice from the outside, but very small inside, no golf clubs. Has idiotic auto Stop/Start, and the GM undependibility. Plus, equipped like my Platinum Murano, it was $14,000 more.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Lexus period.... But the darn cost was too high for comparable options. (CVT's still make me REAL nervous though)
