You shouldn't use your work to trade stocks anyway!

Why not? If I didn't, I'd never have the 10 years experience I have today. Starting out new and trading your retirement funds is a sure road to disaster. I didn't start any kind of savings plan until I turned 50. I would have to rely only on what I got in social security if I did't trade stocks from work.

Ah. No I didn't see the joke. I should have because I do the same kind of dry jokes here too. I thought maybe you were an employer that's tired of seeing his employees waste time on the Internet.

I test drove a 2013 Nissan Murano LE Platenum. Seems like what I'me looking for, except the price I was quoted was $41,791. Anyone have an opinion of this cross-over? Or think they know of a better one for same price or cheaper? Must haves are: "real" premium sound. Heated seats and steering wheel. GPS, AWD. Remote start. Leather seats.

This one has BOSE for sound and I'm having a hard time finding better sound than that. BOSE may be poor for home use, but car audio seems to be a different story.

The GPS screen seemed to be hard to see. Don't know if it was this car, or all of them like that. Maybe the brightness level was set too low. Same with speedometer, hard to see during the day. Too dim.

Check out the Hyundai Santa Fe. 2013 is a complete redesign year. I just built one on their site and it has all of the options that you requested for about 38,600. Saves a few dollars and a better warranty. The Hyundai also gets the same fuel economy even with AWD and does so with 30 more HP. Plus the Murano uses a CVT Transmission, which, IMO is not one for driving pleasure. The Hyundai also used a 12 speaker 550W Dimension Surround sound. My son used to have a 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe and his had the 10 speaker Infinity sound in his and it sounded BOSS, in his car at least.

The seats look thinner and cheaper. The warranty is better. I'll have to compare them at car show this week. I did a build and cost came to $39,100.

Honda cross tour. I didn't see heated seats nor heated steering wheel, nor backup camera (forgot to mention that). Price right at $40,000.

Also lacking a great deal on horsepower. 170 as opposed to 260-290 on the other ones. Same gas mileage.
