2015 Acura TLX: Man, That's a Huge Trunk
by Scott Oldham, Editor in Chief on March 11, 2016
This morning our long-term 2015 Acura TLX played pickup truck. And it played it well.
The luxury sedan swallowed four mounted 15-inch wheels and tires (which my '69 Camaro once wore) so easily I almost couldn't believe it myself.
I did fold the rear seat, which is split 60/40. That was a snap because Acura put the release handles in the trunk where they should be. One yank per side and the seat is down.
Then I started loading the trunk. I expected to get one wheel and tire in the trunk, maybe two. And the other two would have to go in the back seat. But three fit in the trunk. Three! And the trunk closed. No problem.
After making a note of the TLX's low trunk lift-over height and its flat trunk floor, both of which made this job that much easier, I threw the fourth in the backseat and met Frank, my Craigslist buyer, at our designated location.
The deal was done by 9:30. While I'm sad to see them go, I'm glad to have them out of the garage, and I'm very glad to pocket the $250. Thanks Frank.
