    She doesnt like the Tiguan. Too odd looking to her. We have a 15 Rav4 now and she hates the thing. I do too...Im sure its reliable but it feels cheap and crappy all around. 2 years is enough with it.

    We still havent looked at the Q5s, but I dont really know about Audi 2.0T engines....heard not-so-great things.

    No experience with the RAV4. I figured it might be kind of boring & appliance like. You are in a tough spot all those other's you have mentioned can be a maintenance nightmare cost wise. Warranty is your friend.

    DI noise I'd bet. They are not quiet engines by any means. Looks clean good luck with your decision.

    Well we bought the ALL4s above.

    Anyone have a front plate bracket laying around??. Normally I wouldnt put it on there but the bumper has some marks to cover

    I know right. After driving the S I think it would certainly have been too darned slow. :cornut:

    Im just thankful to not have a GLK350 in the garage. A little more comfortable with a Mini

    Amen, Minis aren't exactly reliable, but they really aren't that bad to work on.

    Maybe there is a little bit more room under the hood to fit ones hands & wrenches. Not all MINI's are unreliable, I hope you got one of those. If your wife is happy with her new Countryguy then it is a win. :Thumbsup:
