This car is so good, I wouldn't want to know the person dissatisfied with it. Too spoiled. Excellent reliability. Excellent safety. Excellent road holding in bad weather. The quietest car I've ever experienced. Excellent stereo. Comfortable seats for me. Pleasant styling. Like most Acuras, will probably look fine in 10 years. Cadillacs and BMWs will probably look silly/dated. The only thing you get in 2009 is an ugly restyling, 10 more hp and a significant loss in economy. 2008 is a optimal year. It doesn't feel like a toss around car. Too heavy. Reasonable back seat. Everything about it inspires confidence: quality, road manners, rubber on the road, balance. It does everything well
Safety, reliability. Value was excellent when they were closing out. Compares well with BMW 535xi and Mercedes E350 4Matic, but at a street price about 25% less.
Doesn't have a fold-down back seat. Doesn't have HD radio (in fairness that wasn't broadly available in 2005 when it was new).
