Ok, another what to buy...

Ok folks. My mom is looking at a new car. Her main choice was a Toyota Highlander Hybrid, but the dealership put a $10K markup on the car, so we cut it out. Now she wants a Lexus RX330, but I also want her to look at the Subaru B9 Tribeca. I know that the B9 has some styling issues, but I have heard that it is a great car. We have driven the Lexus, and I hope that we can drive the B9 when I get home (this depends on her cancer treatment, etc). The two cars have around $40k price marks after what we want is installed and the car we want must: have no 3rd row, leather seats (and other lux things), and NO DVD player/ Nav unit (niether are needed). What do you guys think? I like both cars, and want her to get what she wants after what she has been going through. So I am asking you all. Thanks!

(Either car will be new)

Sti

Well, the looks would take getting used to. But everyone says just to look past it.

you should never get a car that you have to "look past" something as big as the exterior design. What happens if you can't get use to it's ugly-ass style? Subaru's are great cars though i just hope the don't f*** up the Impreza like they've been hinting at.

BMW is definatly out of the question because of price, size, and the fact that they have poor reliability. She has had American cars for a while, and wants a car that wont be in the shop more than in our driveway.
