When will Honda/Acura stop selling old technology? Why would you add a new vehicle to your line-up and put a five speed automatic transmission in the car? Buyers should stop being so quick to purchase Honda and Toyota's ancient technology at cutting edge prices! This car will easily get to 30K once you start adding options and for that you get a five speed automatic. Buy the manual and then you will take a hit at trade-in time because it's a manual and "no one wants them" according to the dealerships.Report it
alphadog731 -Could not agree more with your statement. The ILX is not worth the money that they are asking. The car (with only 150hp engine) loaded is at $32,000. A car that has the same HP as the Civic for that price????Many other choices out there. Be smart with your money and shop around. If you want to stick with the Acura brand, the TL and or TSX are much cars for the money.Report it
Am not an ILX owner but recently test drove one for my son. (He drives an rsx/s, my daughter drives a tsx with auto.) The ILX was impressive and this reviewer did a great job of describing the car. It really runs well, handles well and it was more than competent on the highway and on 2 lanes. One thing I would suggest to Acura is a slightly taller 6th speed, it could drop about 300 rpm for highway cruising. The ratios in the ILX manual are almost the exact same as my son's rsx/s and it also shifts as precisely. The clutch is outstanding. It has plenty of power to get off the line and pass. NVH is nicely quelled, much like the '07 tsx my daughter drives. The interior space seemed fine with one exception, headroom is not generous. If you are over 6', it might not be enough.Report it
