Ho Hum design. Little stuff like the parking break being foot driven, and the burled walnut trim being obviously plastic...and black! This car is a rare bird that alwys seems like it is a new pleasure to drive every time I get behind the wheel.

Ratings & Reviews
See above. I generally like everything. Some of the complicated engine parts are starting to be expensive, but not outide of what would be expected for 14 year old car with city driving over putholes and Boston road-ragers aiming massive SUVs at me all the time
Rotten transmission other wise a pleasure to drive and own . Comfortable for long trips or just around town. Perfect for two people. Dependable performance with Acura 3.2 liter and S package. I currently have 170,000 and an on my third transmission.
Should last forever if the transmission doesn't fail again. Because it came fully equipped, the only gadgets it doesn't have are the blind spot warning, a rear camera and a lane change warning. The body is not particularly inspring, but that could be a plus. It's my town car and no one has ever given it a second look.
This is simply the best care I ever drove - considering,y past rides are: Mrecedes 450SLC, PORSCHE 920, VOLVO 1600PE, Camaro 1969. The 3.2clS is: more road-worthy, far far far mess hassle to maintain, as fast as I could ever go in the Mercedes 450 SLC considering the road conditions, the Acura will meet or beat. I want this configuration in a cross over SUV that is little bit meaner than the RDX, and with all the new-fangled safety gizmos like auto-parking, autostop from front or rear obstruction, blind spot blinke, lane change alertr
