SL55 may be gone tomorrow...

I give it a high chance on being sold so I am thinking used G500. Wanted a Range Rover but the online repair advice sections are just too damn large for a late model car (ok it actually was the worst I have ever seen) that will have to carry dogs and I 650 miles sometimes. Friend has a new ML350 and it seems really bland without any outstanding characteristics. The GL series is just too ugly to even think about. Must buy used as the depreciation on any new car is just too much to stomach anymore and money thrown away. E55 wagon is a long shot since it would be useless in winter in Santa Fe.

I would suggest...

2008 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 4MATIC — Yahoo! Autos

I, of course, am prepared to be ridiculed for this proposal.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

I'd second the G wagen. I've had mine since 2004 and still love it. And I get tired of cars very quickly.

I've had no problems with it, except squeaky doors which just need a little attention now and then.

(P3 has a little more active G class forum.)

You like caddies, right?

This could quite possibly bump the Aztek from the king of the ugliest lumps of putrescence
