Help with car purchase

Bought the wife a slightly used 02 tahoe loaded in 2003. 150,000 miles later, its time for a spare suv. The Tahoe has been pretty much trouble free and suits our needs perfectly.

I can get an 07 Tahoe loaded with under 50,000 miles for 23grand or so. I can also get an 06 or 07 Range Rover with the same mileage for the same price.

Pros? Cons?

Thanks

My very biased opinion would be to go for the Range with an Extended Warranty. The Tahoe's are great vehicles, but in my opinion, nothing compares to a RR...

if you can get access to a LR diagnose tool (t4 ?) i'll say you're safe then go for the RR.

What are you doing with your old Tahoe....Im thinking I need another SUV to take the daily driving pressure of my D-90. Thinking of either a cheaper truck or another D-90 but ST(Which I need like a hole in the head)

Are you selling the old Tahoe?
Thanks

I'm going to put it up for sale next month. I have been anal in the upkeep. I just want something newer for my wife to drive on trips with the three year old.

Yes. Its pretty good. Your in FLA?
I spend time at my dads place in Cape Coral and at my moms place on A1A in Lauderdale every year. Big Dolphins fan. Flew down 3 times this year for home games. I traveled to 3 away games also.


Ahhh....how I long for a grouper sandwich and some dolphin fingers.

get the rover but i guarantee it aint gonna be trouble free (come from a guy with an 03). Im guessing you will have more problems in the first year with the rover than the next 5 with your high mileage tahoe. that aside i love mine and have solved all my range rover poblems my self( doors not unlocking, new radiator, suspension lowering when its below 10 outside, replacing a couple hoses and brakes,) you cant loose though if you can get a 06- 07 for $23k
