  3 responses   Safe, reliable car good in the snow

I am a current Ford owner looking for a new car. I like the 2018 Nissan Rogue, but have heatd that Nissans can be costly to repair, and US World News only ranks this car as having average reliability. Can anyone comment on this car's reliability and repair costs?
  7 responses   7/8 Seater SUV

Looking for a reliable 7/8 seat family car SUV that rides well. I like the Mazda CX9 but realize the Highlander and Pilot are generally more reliable. (Test drove Highlander and found it lacking in any "pep.") Probably go with a 2018 to get new safety features.

Any thoughts...

  5 responses   2015/2016 S60 vs TLX

What does the crowd say:
2015/2016 Acura TLX FWD + Technology package
2015.5/2016 Volvo S60 FWD Platinum (because of the stereo/adaptive cruise control / full-auto-braking)

I liked both of them on test drives, but for driving characterists and style it definitely tilts to the Volvo. However I'm concerned...

I currently drive an un-modded 2013 Genesis Coupe 3.8 (V6 / RWD / 6MT) that is fast, handles very well, and has been very reliable. I'm looking for something similar, possibly AWD. Subaru WRX is too choppy and I am not interested in Mustangs or paddle shifters, which leaves the...
