2005 Porsche Cayenne Tiptronic AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
No complaints at all 2,000+ miles in. Looked at Caddy SRX, 2006 Mercedes ML350, Lexus RX330 and others. Rides great and it gets a lot of second looks (you don't see one every 10 yards like the Lexus). You can tell its well constructed -- manufactured in Germany -- not like the Mercedes (Alabama). Fantastic dealer experience.
Tiptronic shifting; exterior look from front; leather seats; steering wheel look and comfort; quality feel of the construction.
Cup holders are horrible. Make keyfob easier to use. Make non-smoking version standard for US. Figure out a way to put in a full size spare
