Bought the car brand new almost three years ago. Chose it over Volvo XC90, mistake. Just after buying it the volume control on the steering wheel stopped working been replaced 4 times and still only works half of the time. Auto wipers come on with clean windshields on a sunny day and sometimes not at all when raining. Ive developed a rattle caused by a cheap weld on the heat shield for the exhaust and now my rear A/C quit working. With the hype Acura puts out I am utterly unimpressed. I've had trouble with the engine starting but only when parked on a hill, you'd still think for 40K you wouldn't have to worry about all this. Not recommended.
Flat folding rear compartment.
Better 4 wheel drive (a low gear perhaps). Better electrical system (way too many bugs).
