Acura MDX vs. BMW X5
Pros: both well built, car-like SUVs
Cons: X5: not as much utility; MDX: not as safe
If you want a great all-around SUV, get the MDX. If you want the ultimate all-road driving machine, go with the X5. Read More at Epinions.com

Keep it or sell it, keep it or sell it... We'll Keep it!
Pros: A sportscar-like ride, tons of power, huge brakes, safest cabin intrusion rating of all vehicles.
Cons: Gas milage, odd shift ratios on the manual transmission.
If you are looking for a mountain car with highway performance, this is it. Fast, comfortable, quiet, safe. What more could you want? Gas Milage is a downer. Read More at Epinions.com
