My suggestion would be to first do some research (you can start here) on each of the vehicles that you are attracted to. Read some reviews, do side-by-side comparisons to narrow it down to 2 or 3. Then go out and test drive those on a variety of roads, and get a feel for the dealers and what kind of pricing is available in your area. Do not "fall in love" and buy until you have driven all of the models that you are interested in.
By the way, the BMW and the Lexus are not alike and appeal to different target audiences. You need to figure out which one you fall into.

Has anyone shopped the MB M-Class in relation to the MDX? What did you find notably different between the two? In your opinion, which would you prefer?
I am looking at both vehicles right now, and wanted to see if other shoppers/buyers compared these two vehicles in their research.

Hi. I am trying to make a final decision and having a hard time.
I have two kids so interior room is HUGE factor to me so the Lexus appears too small, is that what the rest of you think?
I love the ride and feel and gadgets on the MDX, but I think the BMW looks better outside.
The Mercedes is actually the LEAST expensive of them all I have found, can you believe it. I will be LEASING and they are running a Lease special for $525 a month so it's $125 less a month than the MDX so it's hard to decide.

I will also have the same dilemma when I plan to buy this year end, waiting for 2010 RX.

I faced a similar decision recently and went with the 2008 X5 (w 3rd row seats) after owning the RX300 for 8 years.
The previous generation RX (Japanese made) was incredibly reliable - not a single problem in 88,000 miles and had adequate space for family with 3 kids and dog. Unless you are doing any offroad driving, the performance differences are not significant between X5 3.0, RX 350 and MDX. MDX has horsepower advantage and has better 0-60 but for most daily driving I guess you would not notice. Looked at XC90 also but have heard reports of reliability issues and found the V6 underpowered.
RX and X5 felt more luxurious than MDX and as a former owner of an earlier Acura car, I spent most of my time with that wishing that I had bought something else

I think ur decision was good. is it the 4.8?
Can you tell your experience how it has been till now.
I have the same problem choosing well off course i am in no hurry for a purchase.
I like the x5 but since hearing reliability issues i dont know what to choose anymore
I ldo like the rx but well the design is old and guys don't really drive it much
mdx well not for me volvo dont consider.
I am hoping lexus bring a much better rx or a new suv to compete with x5 cayenne and ml
#1068 of 1084 Used SRX is a Bargain

As a new car, the SRX takes a tremendous depreciation hit; however, a used '07-'09 SRX (especially CPO) is probably the best automotive bargain in America.
