That's not really why I'm interested in the GX though. I mean, do I think I might do some rough roads in Baja with it? Winter in Canada? Sure. Other than that its main two draws for me would be Lexus/Toyota vehicle lifespan and also the lifespan of the design cycle. I want to go into retirement with such a vehicle.
I’m aware. Just test drive one to figure out if you like the way they drive. Like I said, fancy suspension and gadgetry have come a long way.

Chrysler only sells cars minivans because the Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna are OOS when someone is looking for one.

Anyone have any experience with the late run c215 Mercedes coupes? A really low mileage ‘06 CL500 popped up at a nearby dealer with a clean service/ownership record and I’m tempted. It would be nice to pick up something like this and it wouldn’t be a daily driver. The 500 platform and later production date are heartening as I know some of the early models and 12 cylinder variants are fraught with bugs but any input from the forum would be appreciated.
I wouldn't touch one of those regardless of whether it was a V8 or V12. The early 2000s were really a low point in quality for MB, lots of issues, and big repair bills. It's generally why even with 6 figure original MSRPs they usually sell for a very little.

Also, we all know you aren’t qualified to be a greeter.
He's already got one side gig.



PS: That's what a Norwegian doing a Scottish accent sounds like. 🤨

I worked at their only minivan plant back in the late 80s/early 90s.
