        And he drives it why? Does he do a lot of off roading (for which it sucks compared to a proper off roader!). Does he need space (which a minivan is better for). Is it for bad conditions on the roads? (In which case an all-wheel-drive car is far superior). Or is he just a poser?

              I field this one Pete:

              Jess: Pete and his Father live in New England. And New England are Notorious for their long winters and Harsh Lake Effect Snow. Lake Effect snow is a result of the moisture off the lake comeing east over New England and falling in the form of snow.

              With the Lake effect snow being a dominate factor 5-6 months out of the year it is important to have adequate transportation. Especially when you are an ER doctor like Petes father. Snow drifts that would stop any 2 wheel drive vehicle can fall within hours. It is important for Pete's father to be ready to cruise no matter the snow conditions.

              Therefore, by living in the climate and bringing home the Check like a doctor does, i can't see a better vehicle out there for Petes Father.

              Go Pete's Dad!

                My dad doesn't want a minivan or big car for off-roading/harsh conditions/ He needs it for interior space.

                We are starting to like the Acura GDX. If anybody has any cons about this car, please tell me. Thanks for all your input so far (yeah Jess, even you ).

                  The all-new Toyota minivan (Sienna?) should fit your dad's needs. Toyota looked at the competition while designing this minivan and the Odyssey was one of the vehicles they looked to improve over. As for me, I would get the Volkswagen Touareg.

                    Apart from a proper 4wd vehicle like a landy of course But he has much better reason than the majority of people, for sure!

                        Landrovers are way overrated. Get a real offroader. Get a Jeep. Off-roading quality for 60 years and going strong. Plus they have a better reliabilty record thand LRs.
                        It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand.

Is it for bad conditions on the roads? (In which case an all-wheel-drive car is far superior). Or is he just a poser?
                          Kat, let me be more specific,

                          My dad is the only Urologist / Uro-surgeon in 4 countys. He serves 4 hospitals, and if you've ever been to Northwestern PA, you would know that our winters here are brutal! Lake effects snows up here can add up on the roads very quickly and make for very very treacherous driving! My dad works from 6 am to 8 pm every single day.....including weekends. He is on call 24/7. If he has to go to another hospital, which are usually 20 miles apart, he needs car that can get him there!

                          Let me answer your questions.

                          1) No he does not go offroading.
                          2) The space capable in this car is very great...for your information my dad drove a Chrysler Town & Country before (a minivan) and this car with the back seats down can fit a comparable amount of stuff.
                          3)The roads here can get very very harsh in the winter time.
                          4) This SUV is an All Wheel Drive car!
                          5) I used to drive a Subaru Legacy, and the BMW handles 10 times better than that does on snow.
                          6)My dad is certainly not a poser, in fact those who know will say he is one of the most simple guys they've met. He's just enjoying some of his hard earned cash...thats not wrong at all.

                          Kat, if you need to know, please ask a little nicer next time. It's wrong to assume.

                          By the way, Adam (DeltaASA16) thanks for you support bro. I know many people here don't know me too well but i really appreciate you sticking up for me!

                              Sorry NW, didn't mean to be bitchy! Just split up

                              I must quibble on one point however - a manual Subaru Legacy far outperforms the BMW on poor or snowy roads, in my experience! I have tried both. Offroad the BMW has a little extra clearance, which gives it the advantage

                                No harm done!!!

                                I just love driving my Dad's BMW though, so I guess I'm partial!

                                Take care,
