I just joined the QX50 group. I'm looking to learn as much as I can about the car as I'm getting close to buying something. I've kind of narrowed it down to the QX50 and the Acura RDX. Nothing else out there appeals to me, just a matter of personal taste, I guess. I currently own a 2009 Murano SL and I love it, but I'm nearing 100,000 miles on it so I'm getting the buying bug. I would have been happy to get another Murano, but they really look ugly to me. Again, just personal taste. I'm surprised at the decent pricing of the QX50; I can get one for less than a new Murano would cost. But what puzzles me is the lack of a power rear hatch on the Infiniti. Strange that I have one on my 2009 Murano, but can't get one on the "upscale" QX50. Any ideas why they don't offer it? Just about everything else on the car has me hooked. Thanks.
