The Yukon and Denali are the same other then some minor cosmetics

Buy her a new Chevy truck. They give you a bicycle so you never have to walk.

You are correct in stating that the Denali is simply a trim package.The difference is the Denali/Sierra is a truck not the SUV. It is loaded the same as the Denali SUV but about 15K less.

Wife has the MDX, nice car/suv. I would buy another without hesitation.


Wife has had an MDX for ten years and my mom has had an RDX for six.
Excellent vehicles.

Would also look at the Subaru Forester and Outback

That transmission might've been included in a service bulletin to replace. I noticed the shudder on our 4runner and started digging, till I found this, and had to purchase it. The dealership was zero help until I printed the whole thing off and brought it up there. I don't know what'd happen if you didn't replace it.

I’m not paying that for an SUV, truck, boat, trailer house, etc. That’s ridiculous. I would start with a moped, and negotiate up from there. You’re starting too high. If it works out, you end up having to buy a used Corolla at most. Maybe a Camry if things go south.

i'm looking too, I've found that used low mileage is the way to go. They seem to depreciate about $10k a year.

Whether it’s a car or a boat or any significant purchase really, I buy new. I feel like if I let someone else eat the depreciation I’m robbing myself of the true ownership experience.

I know I know. But I'm not a teenager anymore and the thought of what someone else has done to a vehicle always bugs me. Also afraid of getting one of those hurricane cars they re-badge, serial number, etc.

I'm referring to the Toyota-designed 8-speed that went into the Camry/Corolla around 2017 if I recall and made it's way into the Highlander in 2018 I think? I don't think it's rated for a 4Runner load and it wasn't around in 2010-2012. It's fine in the camry - my mom has a 2017 camry with it and it drives great. But under the load of a highlander, it gets very, very lurchy and not smooth on gear shifts. Look at any highlander forum and you'll see numerous complaints on it in the newer models.
