well i went to look at the explorer and see some prices and what not on it see financing, but he told me i could maybe go away with 20k$, but he now wont go any cheaper than 22K$, and i didnt really want to pay 20k to start with, so Im going to give him a few days and see if he comes down any, but i think im going to try to think of some other vehicles too

im looking for some SUV's
03 or newer less than 50/60k miles
less than 20k$
i want leather and all my little goodies:rolleyes:
needs to have a decent cargo space for a box
needs to not be slow
decent gas mileage(my blazer got 15, so as long as its around that im good)
uhhh...



some on my mind:
Explorer/mountaineer
nissan Pathfinder
Toyota 4runner
Chevrolet trailblazer/envoy
toyota sequoia
maybe a tahoe

anything else, what would you guys reccommend?

pathfinder and explorer?
i'd go pathfinder based on gas mileage, reliability, reliability, dependability, oh and, it's not a ford. call me biased, but aside from a few models, fords are piece of ****. as with most domestics. and the rare case that your ford doesn't have a major malfunction.

explorers look pretty good, but a pathfinder is just more refined.

I'm not a big fan of domestics suvs either :crap:.

My bro has a 2001 pathfinder fully loaded. Pretty sweet ride, I'd much rather have a landcruiser though :D. However, the 4 runner and pathfinder are both great choices.

wow I hate to tell ya man, nothin mentioned is faster? and what denali's have you riddin in? wow you don't even know whats done to my denali? oh wait maybe that not to old 98 LC or wait even yet a more expensive (toyota LC) lx470 THAT WOULD BE HOT, which are both slow and gas pigs???? and you give a 8 or 9 year old suv for an idea that would deff. not have the tech of the newer vehicles, so that would be great if he asked for old, slow, bad on gas, outa date under $8grand and ugly as hell.

Did I say YOUR denali was slow? No, but we're not talking about him buying YOUR ride lol.
so you'd put a stock 4.0 gc against the landcruiser? or the pathfinder? I'm down :).
a 99 land cruiser/lx470 is
old, slow, bad on gas, outdated and ugly as hell :rolleyes: :laugh: ok....

"a 99 land cruiser/lx470 is

also the funny thing is you never threw my denali in the whole LC race? I'm down, you probally think stickers make your LC go faster too. you know the TRD ones. and any one else I am not bashing yotas I used to own one, its just somebody has an obsession, BTW how many cars have you owned? just curious?

Cars, a 96 seville and 95 325....suvs& truck(too many to count ;).
I could care less how "fast" your denali is. If you choose to try and make your suv some race care...thats up to you :laugh:.
I'd take a LC over a pos denali anyday of the week.
LC's have changed a lot from the 80s ;). I'm sure the Gmc's are just sooo much more advanced than the lexus.
How many houses do you own? Just curious?

BTW I've mentioned I would take the 4runner over all many times ;). Hell I'd take the pathfinder or 4runner over that pointless pos denali ;).
If I had a family of 5 and a huge boat to pull....then I might be intersted in a denali ;).
A landcruiser is far from my dream car :laugh:, and I could give 2 shits if you like them or not.

BAMA-test drive em and research them, then decide which YOU like the most

Sorry didn't know I wasn't allowed to state my opinions :crap:
Why do I think denali's are retarded. Unless you have a wife and kids, as well as something huge you need to pull...what the hell is the point of having a denali? there isn't
I assume he isn't married and if he does have a boat...why not get a truck?
Getting a denali, just for the hell of it....is just retarded(IMO)
I'll agree though I have kinda sounded like a toyota/lexus salesman or something :laugh:
My parents....own a windstar and an f150(no lexus :laugh: ).
They would rather use their money in other ways ;). no $50k denali or $70k lexus for them ;).

You have a boat, house and like 10 cars? Life must not be too bad lol.

between eddie bauer and limited

wait i looked:
Our favorite model is the Explorer Eddie Bauer with 17" painted aluminum wheels, lower front bumper, rear bumper and wheellip moldings. Running boards, automatic headlights, leather trimmed front bucket seats, and keyless pad entry. Mileage is a steady 15 city/21 highway. The Limited has larger wheels, more power seat functions, and dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control.
