Your "quite a bit" to me is "a whole lot". At that price range, I would consider the bigger BMW X5.. but I would be looking at a particular niche I like from the car, not an overall SUV package. The basic economic understanding is to understand if one can justify that additional benefit (or loss) with the additional cost. For some with lots of money, maybe.need4spd said:Nice, but it's quite a bit more expensive than an MDX, and the V-8 is sure to be a big gas guzzler.
My MDX gives me 19 MPG on my local traffic (1/3 highway, 2/3 local drive) on the average. Try that with any V8.
