Looking for a good reliable full size Import without spending an arm and leg.
I'm also shopping both cars.
How do they compare longevity and maintenance wise?

I worked for acura and work for nissan. The RL is faster and more plush. Parts are expensive and the dealer network is smaller. The I30 is able to be serviced at Nissan or Infiniti and they are easier to come across.

oh and my 96 i30 has 152k running strong. RL's don't usually go beyond the 100k mark without spending $$$ on the tranny.
