Thanks for your reply. I always obsess over big decisions like this, but in my defense I actually do have OCD. =) I usually spend countless hours on research and struggle with my decision so long that it takes all the fun out of it! I think the main reason that I solicit input from others is because I'm afraid that I might have missed or overlooked something.
Anyway, I think the Acura TSX V6 has been my top pick all along. But if anyone else thought one of the other four was a better choice, I wanted to hear their reasons. I LOVE the Volvo S60 (and rent them all the time when I travel for work), but the long-term concerns are a deal-breaker. It's so cliche, but they really don't make them like they used to. Back in their day, I would have bought a 700 or 900-series (RWD, built like tanks only stronger). But starting the 850 in '93, their track record for reliability (and/or durability) has been inconsistent at best.
The vast majority of TSX V6s that I've found have been 2010 models. Newer ones (esp. 2012-2013) are almost non-existent. The reason they made so many in 2010 was because the 2009 TL was so hideous that even loyal Honda/Acura owners were lost to other brands. Unitl they could get the facelifted TL out in 2011, they needed a V6 sedan that they could sell! (IMO, the 2011-2014 TL is still one of least attracttive cars in its class). While I'm open to buyiing a 2010 with lower mileage (esp. if CPO), I still would prefer the newest and lowest mileage example within my budget.
To that end, I think that I've found the EXACT car that I want- a 2013 Acura TSX V6 in Vortex Blue Pearl with Ebony Leather, 5800 miles on the clock and it's an Acura CPO. The dealer is located 400 miles away, but I'd be willing to drive a rental or fly one-way to buy it if we can strike a deal and everythign checks out. The car was actually an Acura Corporate Fleet car, which is the only thing that I'm uncertain about. I've found a local independent Honda/Acura repair shop to inspect it and they're going to pick it up tomorrow and give it a thorough inspection. The dealer has it priced at $30,990 but I'm trying to get them $29,000 (they're at $29,990 so far). The MSRP when new was $40,045, so $29k would be 72.5% of the original price plus the added value of the CPO Warranty. All the price guides show the Dealer Retail value at $32k or more.
As long as the inspection doesn't turn up any issues, I'm going for it if I can get them down to at least $29,500! =)
