Bought this car based on the rave reviews, high levels of safety & comfort. We were not comparing with the other luxury SUVs, but rather the Pathfinder, 4Runner, Highlander, Grand Cherokee, etc. Very, very pleased with this choice. Definitely worth a little more money for the level of comfort, safety and reliability.
One of the most quiet rides we've ever had. Very comfortable seating, handles very nicely. Very excited about the safety: AWD, Vehicle Skid Control, front & side airbags, etc.
Very nitpicky suggestions: the computer screen is too much to look at while driving. No big deal.
