+1  Our 2016 Explorer has bubbling across the front of the hood.  Thankfully, I understand it is covered through the 5 year corrosion warranty.  Anyone else have input?

Have heard that Ford is backpedaling on following through with that.  They are saying the panels have to have perforations before doing anything.  Don't want to sidetrack the topic, but just thought it was worth noting.  I'd certainly be hesitant of buying any new Ford now.

Iíve always wondered why anyone would buy an Infiniti.  So many other choices.

What is a normal average days usage of potential vehicle? I think if it was a "commuter" of 50 miles per day or more it would be different than just used for running "local" errands...I work 8 miles from my home, so I wouldn't need to be concerned with certain amenities that I would if I commute.  Just curious...
Do it now...sometimes "LATER" becomes "NEVER"....

I travel weekly so it's a go to airport (30 miles) and weekend car. I'm 57, retiring in 5 years, and kids are almost gone. I still have the truck (crew cab) for hauling and larger groups, plus my wife's Expedition.

And my oldest son has an Infiniti G37S coupe. 330 hp, rear wheel drive, with 19 inch tires and Michelin Pilot Sports. Great performing car. Quiet and comfortable too.

That's the big picture I think.

My wife's '05 Mustang vert has bubbling on the hood but I will definitely not be a happy camper if the hood on her '16 Lincoln MKX starts to bubble. Ford has had enough time to work out these issues. Just saying. >:(

We have a Porsche Macan S. Great vehicle around town, and wonderful on the highway. All the power you need day to day, quiet and fun to drive. Want more, but for a price, go to the turbo.

I just picked up a 2019 Bullitt, it's a great daily driver. Lots of fun to drive and a nice stablemate for 6S1291, which is also green.

I have a 2013 Edge Limited, since new.  It has 90k miles, runs great and very comfortable on trips from Carpinteria to San Antonio.

Tesla model S new or used and be done with it.  Plenty of certified used directly from Tesla for a lot less money than new.  If you want to spend a pile of money, buy new.

I see you are keeping your truck but if that were not the case my choice would be (and currently is) without a doubt a Raptor.  I love mine today just as much as the day I bought it.

Similar to stillakid54's recommendation, go drive a Porsche Macan GTS or Turbo...a new or even a nice used one.  Awesome performance, high build quality and versatile.  My wife drives a Turbo and, if I'm lucky, she lets me drive it once in awhile.
