I’d love to see what that lard-ass looks like on a road bicycle!!! As for the sway that is something you seem to get used to. When I switch from my truck to the Burb’s(we actually own 2 of the beasts) it takes awhile to get comfy with that. The wife’s dream car is the Ford Excursion. Never drove it and am wondering how that handles.

My wife is about to trade in her Avalon, her second one and a fine vehicle for the city and burbs, but a bit of a concern here in The Zone (Appalachia Zone in S Ohio).

She’s looked at the Explorer’s, we had a 1996 model til I bought the Avalanche, and it was a great SUV, completely satisfied with it. She didn’t care for the Excursion based on her ‘homework’ on it, but its a matter of ‘driver feel’ so whatever she wants, she’s going to get. We both own/drive what we like, modified by the basic requirements of where we live - the exception being her Avalon is paid for so we’ve kept it til now.

She’s leaning towards the Santa Fe, but the dealership is over an hour drive time from our house - we are ‘out there’ a bit to say the least.
