Fell in love with this car, a local trade-in, at Toyota dealership. Had 90K miles, but had been maintained by Acura as a leased car. Soon learned that parts were VERY expensive, as was service by Acura dealership. I love its style and features. Tight quality, firm shift, responsive handling. Handles extremely well - has saved my grace a couple of times with its quick response in heavy traffic.
Performance is great! High quality leather seats, nice sound system, but above all, Acura quality!
Get real with replacement part prices! The transmission has proven to be a weak link by many owners. The security/door-lock system has failed for many, and Acura was not willing to make any concessions for the $500-plus replacement of the control module!
