I come from a '91 Legend with 367,000
miles on it. Priced and drove slightly
used Lexus, Mercedes, and Infintiy, I
Acura, new, and for THOUSANDS less. I
LOVE this car. It's sexy, fast, and it
handles great. It really turns heads
too. I enjoy that there aren't that
many on the road. The V8's from the
competitors are over rated. Hey, at 40,
I don't put my foot to the floor often,
but when I do, the V6 really moves me.
The engine has LOTS of torque in the
lower RPM range so merging into traffic
is a breeze. Compared to the others,
this is a driver's car, not a luxo-
boat. My last car was never in the
shop. I doubt this one will be either.
Smooth engine with plenty of power.
Voice recognition Nav system. Fit and
finish is near perfect. Powerful yet
quiet a/c system. XM satellite radio is
incredible. Bose audio system. Front
wheel drive is great for winter
driving. The interior is whisper quiet.
The car begs for a 5 or 6 speed
transmission. At 80 (oops, did I say
80?), the engine turns 3500 rpm. 24
mpg hwy, 22 mpg average, 19 mpg when
I'm feeling 'frisky.' All wheel
drive. Instrument bezels face up and
they collect dust. There really isn't
much to complain about.
