This car is in one word interesting.
The materials and design on the inside
and out are of top quality, but the
engine is another story. The inline
2.5 Litre inline 5 cylinder is the
outcast of Acura engines. While it
loves to rev high and sound very
buzzy, it doesn't move you as fast as
you would expect it too. With some
very agressive driving in my automatic
2.5, I've been able to squeeze out a 0-
60 time of 7.4 seconds. Not too bad
in my book, especially since it's a 5
banger pulling around 170 horses. Not
a fast car, but one that will move you
around in style and almost guranteed
to fire up every morning.
The interior, the exterior design,
handling is excellent and responsive
(almost go-kart like), decent room for
tall drivers in the front seat - as
long as the seat is all the way down
The radio controls, leaky trunk, and
the engine. More horsepower and
torque would have been great (almost
impossible to spin the tires on dry
asphalt). Low gas mileage numbers for
an engine of this size.
