I just purchased this suv loaded. I
compared the Porsche Cayenne and the
BMW X5 and the Mercedes M class. There
was no comparison in terms of overall
comfort, status and value in the long
run. My sister has had hers for about 4
months 2004 and mine is 2005. She loves
it more every day and I am starting to
love mine too! I know I made the right
decision. THe Porsche had more of a wow
factor but more time in the shop which
I don't need, the mercedes wasn't up to
snuff and the BMW was a close second
but too trucky. This was MUCH more
luxurious. I even was able to add 2
extra seats which wasn't available in
the BMW or the Porsche. I am happy.
smooth ride, ultimate luxury yet
practical too. backup camera is useful.
sound system great. etc
rear door swings to side just plain
stupid! rear seats have too many steps
to fold down-silly
