I'll be the third to say they wallow hideously

Also fold up 3rd row seats eat up the boot space when folded.

Ford expedition is cheaper and inside feels cheaper but drives much better and third row folds flat

- Prado - 4.0V6 would do but KSA Toyota made a stupid decision not to sell VXR any more to push people to Lexus GX so only basic spec available so no leather and no curtain airbags
- Lexus GX - only second hand within budget - expensive service / parts, also I feel it is too much money for a pimped Prado
- Grand Cherokee - love it in Overland spec but no third row of seats
- Armada - liked it but now I cooled off, crappy dealer helped

I have now settled for Tahoe in LTZ spec. So any reason not to?
A used G-Wagon or GL class? My sis bought a 1.5 year old GL450, and I drove it during winter in the MidWest. Feels pretty solid and interior is not cheapo looking like soo many Japanese vehicles. Biggest passenger vehicle Merc makes.

Very few on the market. I have seen a year old top spec GL for 250kSAR which is blowing an already overblown budget. I was supposed to import my GCC spec XC90 which is in a perfect nick and has only 45k km on the clock but the assholes here pretend they will increase the quality of vehicles by imposing a 5 year limit on import cars. All they do is help their second-hand and new car dealership buddies. By the time I sorted out the IQAMA the Volvo turned 5 and that was it. And you should see the bangers on the streets of Jeddah while my perfect car is sitting in Ireland and being taxed to oblivion by those moronic Greens. Can't sell it, nobody will buy a LHD 2.5L Turbo with the price of petrol closing in on E2 per liter so I am using it as 'when we go to Dublin' car. Blah.

And G-wagens are normally bought in top spec and are therefore hideously expensive. I used to drive one, during my army career - great piece of kit.

Has anyone heard of this rule being bent at all? I've a 5 1/2 year old Jeep Commander with only 70k on the clock that has been very good (bar AC glitch) and has a good few years left in it that I'd love to take with me.

The best quote on 4x4 handling was "..like sitting on a bar stool, placed on a waterbed." Sadly, this was discribing how old Range Rovers handle, and is perfectly true.

Unless you have six children or have to transport large items, why do people want vehicles the size of a small bus as their main car?

To swing the odds in your favour when the inevitable happens. Especially if you travel frequently between AD and Dubai.

Then what's wrong with a normal sized SUV? The Armada is ridiculously big.

I have always maintained that women generally fit into two groups: kittens and castrators.
