I'm not serious about any of the cars below, but I did briefly consider them as my next ride.
1. Saab 9-7x. I walked by a Chevy Trailblazer and remembered-- Didn't they make a Saab out of this? They did, and it was horrible.
Here is a TTAC review where they were less diplomatic.
2. 2013 Acura TSX wagon. My neighbor is a manager at the local Acura dealership. He drives a pristine, white, first generation Legend coupe with a stick. His wife drives a new, white, TSX wagon. Of all the modern wagons, this is one of my favorites, looks-wise. As a previous TSX owner, I know they are ultra-reliable and solidly built. When I sold my 100,000 mile TSX, it looked no more than a couple years old. My only gripe is that the wagon does not come with a stick. But as this New York Times article reveals, Acura projected just 3% of TSX wagon owners to want sticks, and it just didn't make sense to just make 100-150 of them a year.
If I were to buy a new car, this would definitely be on my short list.
3. 1993 Mercedes 500E. One just came up for sale at the Buggy Bank. I can't stomach the maintenance and repair costs on one of these, so I'll pass.
