2008 Acura TL 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
This Acura TL is a step up from a fully-loaded 2003 Accord V6 that I previously drove, and wife continues to love it despite 320,000 km on it (bought it brand new!). So far, I've had very little regret from choosing it over Audi A4 and Lexus IS 250. The car drives beautifully, esp. on the highway! This car gets the most bang for your bucks!
Bluetooth and oh yeah, the kickin' stereo system! Nothing like it with whatever kind of music you want, from techno in a hot day to classical in a long drive along the countryside roads.
A little more power, esp. in the low rmp. AWD is needed (think it's coming next generation)
