@DH3069
Yeah it's just the right thing to do. I like what I like and my husband has not tried to make me change from that. I'm into trucks and he has not ever tried to make me change from that and get a car, SUV, etc or even get a different truck from what I have wanted.

When it's time for a vehicle, we normally rent one for a few days or even a week to see if we like it first before purchasing and not like it. That's how I got my F150. I rented on for a week to see if I would like it. I had a Chevy Avalanche before that.

Well it looks like all had been eliminated accept for Acadia and Durango. She like both. The Explorer she didn't like the 2nd row space and that's her most important thing right now.

My neighbor has an Acadia and loves it. The only negative is it averages 14mpg.


While I know folks with Durango's, none of them has the latest model. The only negative I've read about Durango's is they have a bad habit of catching fire. You can Google that.

Acadia's are built like ****in tanks. They hold up well to rear end collisions from a Neon hitting them at 25-30 mph.

The Yukons aren't a bad vehicle but in my opinion they are overpriced.
I had a Suburban for 18 years and it was one of the best vehicles I've ever had. Chevy knows what they are doing with this model line.
Get the XL with the twin rows of Captain's seats and it is truly an awesome ride.

Let her get what she wants man. As long as you dont have to drive it all the time, if it was a shared vehicle i understand. Last summer my wife was set on a volvo XC70 soley because of safety ratings but the cost and MPG's are terrible..... Once i showed her similar ratings in other models she started looking around, then it was the acadia because of the size. END all be all she ended up in kia sorento best of all worlds MPG, safety ratings, and cost effective with a great warranty.

Going to be a busy day tomorrow going from dealer to dealer. Got to go by the Ford dealer to see if I can push the Explorer a little more. lol

Then, Chevy :puke:, Dodge, and more GMC & Honda dealers


Btw, looked into a '14 Seirra z71, LMAO, Really GM? Nothing to see. I want my 3 minutes back.
Dude the 2015 Yukon is bad***! I work at a GM dealership and they started coming in last week. You might be able to get a smoking deal on a leftover 2013. Although the new body style is so much cooler! Good luck on whatever you choose.
