20K Miles - Little Flaws

ReviewAfter 20K miles and 24 mos of owning the base model, still a blast to drive on dry, wet or snowy roads. SH-AWD outperforms my 4wd 08 Tahoe. Had electrical glitches that the dealer had to fix: CD player failed, exterior temp. thermometer failed, sunroof failed. 2nd stage clearcoat not premium-needs to be detailed every 6 mos or so to restore the like-new luster. Forget the 3rd row seating unless you have little kids; no legroom. 2nd row fits 3 adults comfortably. No other problems! Currently averaging 18 mpg & tires starting to fade due to aggressive driving. Worth every penny!
Best FeaturesSH-AWD meter on dash graphically displays power distribution to front, rear, left and right wheels; really cool on icy roads. Headlamps are trick - linear broadcast gives a wider field of view when dark.
Worst FeaturesNeeds better clearcoat, Acura needs to improve electrical harness! Had same problems on my earlier vehicles. Ipod connection needs to be updated.
