    Acura TL or Volvo S60?

    Does anyone have experience or thoughts on either of these two cars? My wife is wanting a new car when she gets home, so I am doing some preliminary searching. She likes both, but I am leaning to the Acura TL. My main concern is reliability.

    I don't have any personal experience with newer acuras but they are very reliable cars. I really like the new TL's also.

    Option 3 ... Hyundai. Lol. But seriously, I have an '04 Santa Fe with over 130,000 miles on it and I have never had to put money into it (aside from general wear-and-tear ... when it wasn't covered by warranty anyway).

    I tried to talk my wife into the Hyundai Genesis, but it was a NO go. She loved the engine power, but didn't want a Hyundai....

    She had an older model when she was a teen, back when parts were hard to get, and quality was meh. She had a bad experience with them and doesn't want another. I can't say I don't blame her, I am the same about things. It is hard to overlook bad history with a product line.

    maybe you can test drive each model....in GT5. not sure if they have them available in the game but i think it would be amusing to tell the salesman you already took it for a test drive in a video game and preferred the handling over the other one

    Gaming is staying up 'til 3am to earn a trophy that isn't real.......BUT IS
