now the qx56 is sweet. I am a big offroader and I dont like the h2 becuase they say its suppoedly some big offroader, but i see it as a poser. Noone who buys an h2 ever wheels it, and I just don't like it. Too plasticky fake lookin to me. Saw a vid of one wheeling and snap the front axle on an obstical that a ****in suzuki samuri could easily traverse. i dunno

H2 are not pimp. Pimps drive them. H2 suck gas, look like a wannabe Hummer but not tough at all. For the size they sux at room. They are terrible looking and at least 25,000 overpriced!!!!

Waste money but the fact is many nice SUV's and 4 door trucks are way more versatile than a H2. I in the not to distant future will either get a 4 door Ram or a 4 door Ford truck. I have 2 friends that just bought 4 door Nissan V8 trucks and they are nice and come with a wicked exhaust system

If he is the market for high end I think the Infinity is nice so is the Volvo XC90 4.4-liter V-8

Is he wanting a BIG SUV? If he is tell him to look at the Escalade ESV. My parents got one a few years back and its really nice. It gets about 15mpg around the city, and is just as big as a suburban. They come with tons of options too, like navi system, heated seats, the whole works. Also the thing doesnt require premium... itll run just fine on 87 octane. Escalades are #1 in my book... theyre freakin sweet

the ESV is a bit steep in price, 70,000. he wants one with an msrp of 55,000 or less.

holy crap... its 70k now days?? i think my parents got it in 03 when it was around 55-60k.... even though thats a lot of money, it defanitely went up in price. Its kinda funny cuz my dad wont buy anything unless he has the money to pay for it up front... and when he bought that car he was able to get the 0% financing on it... so he just threw all the money in a seperate account, and is earning interest even though hes making payments. So in reality, hes only paying roughtly 40k for the car that should be much more than that. My dad rocks at saving money and knowing what to do with it... hopefully i learn those skills some day cause all i do is spend it lol.

hes a smart man. Yeah man, we just cant afford a car that has an msrp of 70k because after everything it will all come out to like 80k. if it was 55-60k like what your dad got it for then we would be able to, but at 70k + taxes and all that ****, too much.
