I'm likely taking a break from the BMW after the warranty expires. Hope the XC90 comes out with V8 by then or will suck it up and go with an F150 tricked out.

I would like to drive a V8. Some blog posts I've read indicated Volvo may introduce a diesel version in a couple of years, but no plans for V6 or V8. I drove a 4 cylinder 240 in college. Loved the...

I liked the look of the "box" Pilot, but not certain about the new body style. They seem to be following Toyota's lead or took design from the Odyssey. However, the specs are good as you point out....

I know this topic has been debated a lot, but I am running non-run flats for winter set up and the ride is great. When my RFT expire, I'm going with non-RTFs.
