    I was looking at the Tahoe. Not as big but I just got a 2019 Durango GT. About 2 weeks old and absolutely love it

    Unless you own a ranch or have 5 kids please buy a sensible vehicle

    before the Santa Fe sport my wife had a Mazda and it was a piece of shit. She has a knack for buying awful cars, so I’m trying to take the lead on this as much as I can.

    how long ago was that? the CX-5 and CX-9 are pretty much the kings of the crossover segment until you're dropping 20k+ over their cost.

    hers was a 2010, sold it in 2016 at which point it was having all types of mechanical issues shy of 100k. She doesn’t like the body style of most crossovers either, she wants something that looks like a SUV.

    Does she have any reason to have an SUV besides wanting to sit up high?

    well we need 6/7 seats due to kids and cargo. The preference for a more “traditional” SUV opposed to the crossover type is almost exclusively due to looks.

    I doubt that. Almost all police are moving to the Explorers/Tahoes. That supply will hurt all Explorers, even the nice ones.

    Are you sure that she's just not turning those cars into pieces of shit?

    police cruisers are a different model. The Explorer interceptors are going for 10k less than the base models.

    she drives like a grandmother, so I doubt it.

    Mazda's aren't really bad vehicles so not really sure why there were problems.
