My first Acura and possibly my last. Performance with the four speed is reasonable but nothing great. Gas milage only so-so. Interior design is certainly above average. Nice car to sit in for the most part. Seats showing wear earlier than suspected. Tranny had to be replaced at about 50000mi. Left me stranded on a hwy. Now having trouble starting the car when it has been raining for afew days. Dealer can't seem to find the reason. Overall I am disappointed. Have had better experiences with a Maxima in the past. Not much better than my old Taurus SHO and that is not saying much!
Transmission goes every 55k miles and Honda wants nothing to do with me. Theelectrical is a nightmare, the ballastshave gone out twice. The whole car is now creaky and rattley and the seats wiggle around if you move in them. Not impressed. I will never buy another Acura.
Best car for the money, bar none. GPS navigation system works like a charm .... you can't get lost. Speed shift gives the control and acceleration of manual shifting, without a clutch. 225 hp engine packs enough punch, and still gets 25-27 mpg highway, and 20+ mpg city. Leather heated power seats are cozy. Only drawback is it's modest exterior .... but even that is a blessing in disguise, as I never really worry about it getting stolen or vandalized.
GPS navigation system .... it really works .... and Acura's GPS is more convenient than other manufacturer systems, as the Acura GPS allows for interactive changes while driving.
Include a rear spoiler as standard equipment. Would help to make the car look a little flashier.
