My next car: Acura TSX wagon

The Saab story has become a sob story. Three of the best Saab specialists in town can't figure out what's wrong with it. Repair estimates range from $3,100 to $5,000+, with no guarantees. Worse, the parts needed for said repair are nowhere to be found.

So, a new chapter. Something reliable. I'm going to get a 2014 TSX wagon tomorrow or Friday. It's white.

Good car. There are two TSX wagons for sale in Kazakhstan. Useless info but Acura is very unpopular here and people prefer 4 doors to 5 so TSX wagon is like a unicorn.

P.S. Minichamps called their new budget line Maxichamps

What about a Subaru? In our family experience, after 25 years of Subaru ownership they've been flawless, not a single reliability problem on our 3 Legacy.

@Sanchez: People in America do not like 5 door wagons either. My Maxichamp name is derived from Minichamps!

@Ripituc: I really miss my old TSX sedan. It was fun to drive, reliable, and was a good value.

My Subaru wagon is fun to drive too, but then it's been lowered and is packing close to 400 HP.

Too bad about the Saab, glad I didn't buy that one I was looking at about a year ago. Such a cool, interesting car. The TSX will be fun and faultless.

What about the Saabaru?

@Ripituc: I want nothing to do with Saabs. Also, it's too small.

I missed this whole saga - what was the root problem to begin with? Sorry you got burned by your experience!
