Love Range Rovers, but you would end up paying a bunch maintenance on a used one. Volvo's new design language is gorgeous but it's not cheap.Land Rover may be less reliable, but I think it would be more durable. Able to survive potholes and the like better than some of the others. Also, all modern LRs (without exception I think) that use variable suspension can use that suspension to stop body roll. I recall the TH test of a RR sport that was very impressive, flat even on a track driven fast, yet still comfortable and capable off-road.
Now there's an interesting idea. I never had to opportunity to test one last time, but have always liked the XC range. Provided there are no CVTs around, it might also be an interesting option.
(I will reply again to everyone more properly next time as it's late and I be tired)
Thanks for all the feedback so far everyone!
If you want reasonably priced and reliable you have a bunch of AWD choices in Toyota's lineup. Using my address +250km I saw AWD Siennas if you want great but not cool, some well equipped RAV4 less than 5 years old, and some older Highlanders; all $15k or less.
