1. Must be dependable. Very heavy weighted towards Lexus or Acura. 2. Must be "luxury". Basically, nav/leather/driver memory settings are required. 3. Newer than 2011 4. AWD The faster the better. CRV, Rav4, and a few others are ruled out because of the slowness. So far, BMW 3 series, Lexus IS, Audi Q5, Mazda CX-5 (loaded) are at the top of the list. Any opinions on these cars would be great too.
