07 Infiniti fx35 - still have it with nearly 250k miles and love it for hauling dirty dogs and other adventures where I don’t want to care about my car. Absolutely love this car, still looks good, unfortunately Infiniti destroyed the look and quality of the fx after 09 or so. But almost 0 issues with it

17 turbo as daily and when neither I or the dogs are dirty.

sport suv is all I’ve ever known/wanted.

I am totally impressed that you remembered all of your previous rides. At the time you were driving/owning them, which were your favorites, your 'pride and joy' so to speak?

Have you ever driven other cars ?

For instance as a child my parents were luxury car lovers . I even have a friend now whose loves a big luxury car . I have driven plenty of them in my life and owned one once for only a month . The rest of my life was sports cars but there was this period of ambivalence where sport sedans made way as well (IE the M3) . Full size SUV -- I had one (a cayenne) . Sport SUV- that too (Macan) .

Come to think of it .. perhaps its that I am old . Haha .

I do the maintenance for all the family cars, cls550, nsx, vette, truck, touareg, etc a little bit of everything so ive gotten a wide range of taste. I will say the cls550 is definitely one of my favorites, if I wanted a sedan that would be it. Always been drawn to the hatch back, its just so handy. mercedes does a **** good job of making an extremely comfortable and driver friendly and fun car. the rest, meh. the ideal setup in my mind is a sport suv then a sporty sedan (i have to admit i really want to test drive a kia stinger....ive seen some pretty crazy dyno numbers coming from these). If i want something dedicated to going fast I have my motorcycles. I dunno, sports cars are cool I just dont really enjoy them as much, usually no back seat so if i wanted to bring my puppers only 1 can come and thats abit of a deal breaker

Yes, have owned many SUVs in the past.
Way back to 1979 when I ordered a Plymouth Trailduster from the factory. Since then a 2000 Dodge Durango...2004 Dodge Durango...2008,2011,2013 and 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokees (you can see a theme here I like Mopars) then I also had a Volkswagen Touareg which was a nice vehicle but had a persistent alignment issue. Also had three Wranglers mixed in there somewhere. Also, a Acura MDX and a Lincoln MKX before I got my 2019 Macan.

That Pathfinder went 28 years for me. When I drove into the local Porsche dealership to deal on a Macan I was ignored. I went across the country to find a friendly discount ready dealer.
I apologize up front. How many miles were on the 1989 Nissan Pathfinder (silver/black) automatic when you traded it in? ;-)

I didn't trade it in. My S.O. bought it from me. It lives and I still have to maintain it. As the car is at her place I'll give you a best guess on mileage.at 120,000. Other than having to repair the 'Y' between the exhaust banks of the V-6 it has been dependable while doing normal maintenance including replacing the cam belt at 90,000. That is pretty low miles per year.

2014 FJ Cruiser Ultimate Edition - the last of it's kind and limited to only 2,500. Honestly, I do miss it. While I have been enjoying the Macan - I find the long drives quite uncomfortable. At the moment the Bronco has piqued my interest...

Curious to know what seats you have?

2020 Macan S (age 30)

I got really used to the ride height in the CR-V. I borrowed my friend's Rav4 in college and really enjoyed the higher ride height, smoothness and overall utility so I switched and won't go back for anything besides a sports car or convertible.

A couple of Jeep Grand Cherokees.

Served us well during a period of lots of kayaking, biking, and back woods exploring.

Did you get offended?? If so....I am not sure why....really no need to roll your eyes........ I stand by that comment.....in my opinion....the Macan is a very heavy feeling vehicle while driving....YMMV
No, not offended. It was the first time I've seen the ride of any Porsche being described as "tanky". That's all.
