    Spinning off the Costco thread, why did you get fired? I'll start:

    Ewwww.

    GM needs something to match up with the Durango R/T & SRT. Ford will have the Explorer ST so that's close.

    The biggest thing to watch for on the full size Nissan is that they use a ton of fuel. Any full sized SUV is going to be a pig on gas but the Nissan (Titan & Armada) seem to be worse than most.

    Difference there is that the market value of a house (generally) goes up whereas the car will (generally) go down. But you're right in that even a home owned outright still costs money to operate.
