I just want a reliable luxury SUV that feels good to drive and for me the Cayenne is the only game in town. BMW used to own this segment but lately they lost their way. I love and believe in them and I'm sure they'll be back with a vengeance but the F-series so far is a dark episode which is neither reliable or good to drive, just luxurious. Kind of like a Jaguar. Yes I could get an E70, it's great but the Cayenne is better IMO. Power or mpg is not really interesting to me as long as it's sufficient which is pretty much covered by all Cayenne and X5 models on sale today in the US. Porsche's are expensive but for us as a family we have agreed that they are worth it when BMW fails to deliver.
