Default Re: S60 AWD

Remember, this is just *my* opinion. I can't say anything for
ownership, but I test-drove the 2004 Volvo S60R and the 2004 Acura TL, twice
each, and I felt like the Acura won every category except for being
front-wheel-drive (I also was cross-shopping the 2004 Audi S4). I did love the
Volvo's seats, and the concept of the adjustable chassis set-up, but the Acura
impressed more overall. I especially did not like the Volvo's rough idle or
noisy exhaust. I love the sound of a finely tuned V8 or V6, but the Volvo's
5-cylinder was not appealing to me. So, what did I buy? I'm waiting until
September for the release of the 2005 Acura *RL*, which comes with 300
horsepower and "Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive", all for around $45K. It will
also feature the world's first navigation system that takes current traffic
updates into your route consideration. I sure hope it's worth the wait... Or
else I might wait until January 2005 to see the new Infiniti M45/M35 (with
all-wheel-drive) or the new Lexus GS 300 (also with all-wheel-drive)...
