Purchased As New
Purchased this car solely on feature/price point comparison. Wasn't going to get the Audi Q5 or Lexus due to price and the Honda/Nissan were significantly underpowered for my tastes (already owned a Rogue). Toyota was not even in the running and Ford while nice had 3 recalls since launch. So a big no no.
Acura got the styling pretty right on this vehicle and just sitting (not driving) in the car is very comfortable in all locations. For just 5k you can get the tech pkg which is what we did and overall it is pretty nice.
There are plenty of improvements which need to occur however. From a driving perspective, the gears are rather tall and shifts are very noticeable even when slowly accelerating from a full stop. Suggestion - charge an extra $500 dollars and put in a eight speed! Better gas mileage most likely and smoother gear shifts.
What really needs to be rehauled is the voice commands and ipod integration. In order to make a phone call you need to halt the prompter from speaking excessively.... the Acura settings are either beginner or expert where nothing is said. They are definitely missing a level! Also how do I turn off the system from reading the stupid music title with it's mechanical voice? Every time I scroll to a new song there is a pause and the TTS tries to vocalize the track name... Not only is this annoying but it is distracting! I just want to switch quickly without having to stare and see which song the pointer is at due to the stupid system.
Had a Audi A4 before wife and kids, their system was far more smooth than this!
