You can buy an almost new W212 for $30k, put the remaining $30k to work for you over the 3 years while you wait for this E-class to depreciate to about where it's worth.

The GS refresh has proven to be a spectacular failure.

Clearly people don't want to see that type of styling on what is supposed to be a conservative mid-level luxury executive sedan.

Why would you steer the poor guy to the ancient Enclave?

I would wait for the XT5 and test drive that as well.

I would not choose an RDX over an RX.

Audi is not #1 for reliability according to this ranking. This ranking is a combination of reliability and road test scores.

Audi lags Lexus on reliability but outscores it on road test scores.
