Last Christmas I bought my wife a 2015 Lincoln Navigator with only 28k miles and the 3.5 ecoboost. She loves and and it pulls my boat better than my F150 does.

I will be the only one that will say any of the above except Lexus. We were involved in the melting dash era on our RX350 and they agreed to warranty it, but it was on back order for the 2 years we were on the waiting list. Car eventually got totaled while we were still waiting on the dash, and the claims adjuster told us for one last kick in the nuts that he would be able to give us $1000 more for it if the dash wasn't melted.

They make a great product, but wont stand behind it in my experience. I will never own another Lexus. If you doubt any of this, google it. Lot's of people pissed off over that.

Good luck!

My mom had the same issue. They eventually replaced it under warranty. I think every single RX350 had that issue so they all have to be replaced creating the back log. It did take a while but eventually they took care of it.

My wife has the GX460. It has been a great car so far. I would not hesitate to get another. My wife wants another car but we keep coming back to the 460 as the best vehicle for her. She wants a larger vehicle for another baby and space. Once we look at whats out there its either a mini van or the GX. Neither of us want to be seen in a mini van. Maybe Ill get a big people mover like a e250 or something that can tow the boat as well.

I think you can buy a new Kia Telluride in your price range.

We were on the list for over 2 years before it got totaled. During one of my many calls to the corporate office in CA, an upper level manager asked me if I thought they should just stop new car production to fix my minor problem. I told them that if they didnt have the ability to do both they wont ever have my business again.

As far as I am concerned, they made a business decision to kick the can down the road for as long as they could to keep their profit margins instead of helping the one that helped them get where they were.

The QX60 is 8 inches longer and 3 inches wider than the Lexus GX460. The Lexus does weigh 700 pounds more, however. Just letting you know...

She has great taste... Maybe you're not in a good geographical area for them, but fly in drive home is very common today.. I just did a search in SE FL for 2017 Tahoe LT with 4WD.. Plenty of them with 50-60k in your budget. I have had thoughts of trading out of my 2012, I bought it 9months old with 22k on it for $34, it's worth $18 easily today with 91k on it, depreciated $16k over 6 years. I will get the 15 and up body style when they come out with a next one, that's how I buy them. My 90lb Great Pyrenees dislikes 2nd row bucket seats, so a LT it will be.. that'll be my 4th Tahoe, great vehicles.
