Hi All, I've done too much thinking and no longer am sure of what I think I know or not, so was hoping for some words of wisdom from the brains trust. My better halfs Territory is due for an update (last of the range,2016 with 40K), and so we are in the market for a mid size SUV with a bit of luxury. I've done full loops across each of Jag Fpace, Evoque, Macan,Velar, GLC300 merecedes, and even Volvo CX60 was on the cards. For us, a $100k car is a pretty big purchase, and i'm trying as best as possible to avoid a potential diaster. Too many youtube reviews, forum reads, and even test drives has left me a little disillusioned with whats available. So, guys if I spell out my thoughts on each, I'd be interested in if that aligns with the general concensus, or if I've got the wrong end of the stick: (I probably dont expect a 'your should buy this car recommendation' because it depends on our In no particular order, this is what i've tested and considered: - Porsche Macan: Ok my favourite, for performance and its just as nice as my 718. Only issue may be rear space, its at the smaller end compared to current Territory. I am trying to be sure that any alternative is better - Velar: I'd planned for a diesel, but the petrol/oiling issue rulled that out, and the overall build quality and people returning cars and walking away from them just plain scares me -Evoque: Even more quality concerns that Velar? Interior window button on the test drive car fell aprt, and panel fit on brand new showroom car was shocking - MB GLC 300: Steering wheel is offset to passenger side? Gearshift on the tree? And i'm not even 50 yet, and considering a MB? -Fpace, I wanted to like it, but the ride was really poor, think 2003 Daewoo in local streets Volvo hasn't been tested, but maybe a little 'pedestrian' ? No offence intended to anyone who has any of the above, apart from the Daewoo, I know there are masses of each example on the roads. Thanks in advance to any guidance,words of wisdom or otherwise, and apologies for being more of a 'lurker' here than participant. keep away from the Corona's Deano
How's this as a testament to good work! Independent Porsche specialist Autowerks at Charmhaven on the Central Coast builds a car that wins 2nd overall and 1st in class in the 2016 Peking to Paris. And it wasn't even a 911 but a '74 Mercedes 450 SLC. Good work for Murray and Adam Jackson too! A bit of a blurb on the team and the car preparation on this link: http://pp2016.com/
