I bought a 2011 CPO last December with 32,000 miles. I too was not thrilled with the ride over rough roads and noticed a jarring thud and not nearly enough shock absorbing. I took the car in today...

I totally agree with the go for it!!! Life is too short to not move on for around $4,000. I don't disagree with your assessment of the ride, I bought a 2011 CPO after owning a 2005 and found the ride...

I find it interesting that so many like the styling of the Grand Cherokee, I find it totally underwhelming, think it is a step back from prior designs. If you are even thinking of waiting till...

I saw the new nx at the auto show. I thought that it looked nice enough but was disappointed in the horse power. Just not competitive with luxury vehicles in this class whether it be the Acura rdx,...

It's hard to believe that someone who has done after market stereos with subs would find the bass in the rx any good. In my estimation there is very little output below 50-60 cycles, if that. As my...

I am a long time audiophile who has put $5,000+ after market stereos in many of my autos over the last 35 years. I have heard from many reliable sources that the ML system is not quite worth the...

I couldn't agree more that you should just wait for the next generation which will be the 2016 model year out next year. The 2015 is way to much like your 2010. The BMW x5's are absolutely great to...

The car manufacturers seem to go to great lengths to make real wood veneer look as much like plastic as they can with lots of plastic lacquer! My Mercedes e550 has beautiful wood inlays that look...

Where did you put them to not take up any cargo area? How are you powering them? What brands are they? And of course, how does it sound. Thanks. Regards. Ned.

The 2010 is in fact bigger in all dimensions and feels even bigger inside. The cargo area seems to have better cargo space with the different rear suspension. I have 19 inch rims on my 2011 and find...

I know that the Michelins have pretty stiff sidewalls. What tires do you have? My rx is an October 2010 build I believe, so well past an early build. Do you know if they still had rear shock...

If you have kids and need the third row, there is no beating the MDX, I think it is the winner by a wide margin. My wife drives a 2011, loves it and we never really use the third row. Regards. Ned.
