    Tell him that he's a terrible rapper, please. And that nobody listened to "Ghetto Superstar" to hear him.

    Buick looks like a gas hog, but on the other hand also looks like it could haul bags and personage if you do roadtrips. It's also quite ugly, if that matters to you. In my experience the Lexus handles pretty poorly on ice (granted, the snow tires on at the time weren't the best/newest and it was Baker with heavy snowfall) and it isn't the roomiest of SUVs but can fit 3+gear (day packs, boards, boots, etc.) comfortably without a rack, 4 if the back 2 don't mind being chummy

    Meh, appearance is a matter of taste but I don't mind the way they look at all.

    You didn't like the RX in winter conditions? Because that's surprising, I would have thought it would do pretty well with the AWD (unless the one you were driving was FWD?)

    It was AWD, but this was on a particularly bad day. Most of the drives up to the local, less intense, hill it did perfectly fine and I'm not sure how well other cars would have done anyway

    Get an 07-08 FX35/ 09 Q5

    Stay away from the Buick, unless you are retired/over 65

    I like the FX35 but it's too damned small. I might get one at some point in my life just to serve as a car rather than a trip hauler. Don't really care about age stereotypes associated with brands.

    In that case my vote goes to the RX

    As far as the Buick (despite my awful joke) I have no experience with, but I bet you could find something better at the same price with comperable MPG and parts that don't cost a leg etc. 07-08 SRX comes to mind

    The SRX is a pretty terrible car in the snow (have driven one) and has really poor reliability ratings year to year. Also, the Enclave actually has a nicer interior and better ride. And it's bigger. I would imagine Caddy parts cost more than GMC ones. I have no idea why you'd say the SRX is better, in what way?

    Yeah I dunno. I like the RX for reliability and the snow tires saves me $, but the extra size in the Enclave would be pretty nice to have.

    Is this a joke? Won't the SUV clash with your whole zombie apocalypse aesthetic?

    I typically am not wearing combat boots and a leather bomber to go skiing, dude.

    And to be honest I don't know what WOULD go with that aesthetic other than a beat up early 90's RAM covered in rust perhaps. With bull bar fog lights.

    Just threw it out. I have caddy lovers on my dads side. The old ones from 08 (the V8) were very reliable, I don't think they ever had to do more than the regular upkeep. The speedometer broke down once, thats it. I can't argue with the Buick though, I have never driven it. Snow? no experience there either

    I'd still do the RX from the 2 choices

    Postscript: I may pick your brain for help in choosing my new ski gear when I narrow the choices down a bit
