We bought this car used the summer of 2010.
It had about 43K on it. It was totaled last week with 84 K on it.
We never had a problem with the car.
We did the standard maintenance and never had to think about it. The car wrecked well.
I was rear ended by a large truck traveling at a high speed.
I walked away from the wreck with a broken nose saying that I wanted another Acura. The impact shifted the car off the frame so badly that the plastic components on the inside popped off; however, the passenger compartment stayed intact.
It doesn't matter how a car looks or even if it has a good repair history--what matters is will you walk away from a high-impact wreck.
Fun to drive. Good gas mileage. Loved the fact that the display told you how many miles to a tank were left.
Looking at a TL for this reason. My kids (age 7 & 10) were comfortable in the back though.
