I've enjoyed my 2009 Acura and am now considering buying out the lease at lease end.
This car is an amazing value for the price; great exterior appearance, superb handling (I have the 6 speed manual tranny), and comfortable seating for 4 adults.
Edmunds kind of pinged the quality of the interior, but I find that the textured materials used on the dash and the leather in the seating to being close to BMW 3-series vehicles.
The only real issue I have found is that there has always been a high frequency noise that comes from the car always at 3200 - 3400 RPM.
It isn't terribly loud, but it is there and can be a little annoying.
The dealer has told me that it is nothing to worry about tho.
Handling/performance, fuel economy (I avg 28.3 w/both highway and city driving), appearance.
I have 45k miles on this vehicle and have had no major issues.
Address the high pitched noise generated from 3200 - 3400 RPM.
