i've probably posted this type of thread like a million times but i still don't know what to do. the new acura's (TL/CL) are tight, but, i've noticed quality decrease over the past decade. and the transmission issue is really getting to me. i know those cars are due for a re-design in like 2003 or 04 (if the CL doesn't get dropped off the line) but my goal is to get a new car b4 college and i think by that time it will be too late. i think for the price, features n everything the comparitive equal would be a maxima. they are also due for a re-design (RWD, V8), but i heard for 2003 than 2004. i am leaning towards the maxima because that car has yet to have serious problems or a recall in 12 years, also, you can get a brand new maxima fully loaded n everything at certain carmax dealers for around 25k and that's not counting my legend as a trade in. what does everyone think i should do? any suggestions for a 4 door v6 import near luxury/sport sedan with plentiful torque/hp for around 31k? need any input i can get, sorry for the long thread but i need some serious help.
