I just purchased a new 2011 EXL CT 2WD wo NAV on March 6th. I traded in my Cadillac DeVille after dealing with one too many repairs. The EXL I purchased is just as luxurious as the 2002 Cad I had and has plenty of room for hauling my model trains to the train club. That was one of my criteria as well as having plenty of leg room. I looked at the Ford Edge, Toyota Venza, Toyota Avalon and Ford Taurus as replacements for the Cad. The Crosstour had the best value compared to the others and the leg room of 42.5 inches was great. I am a big guy so I need a roomy car. The EXL hit that sweet spot for me of size and value. Great to find a forum for Crosstour owners.
