Editor's Overview

As entry-level luxury sedans like the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4 have increased in size and price, they've left a void that the 2015 Acura ILX aims to fill. With a compelling price, and the right features to go head-to-head with similar sedans like the Buick Verano and Audi A3, the Acura ILX makes a good case for itself.

Lack of blind spot warning.

My Acura ilx does not have blind spot detection or warning. It does not have any sunglass holder. Performance is good but when accelerates, there is a jerk as if it hesitates a first and than move fast. It is a comfortable car to drive with roomy seats and enough legroom. Sound system is good.

- Resh M

I love how it has seat warmers.

It runs great, my brakes always go out, I have heated seats, comfortable driver, it's great on gas, huge touch screen on the radio, enough room for kids, lots of technological feature, black rims, Bluetooth, hands free calling. I love this car so much it was my dream car.

- Jenny C

I like the way she picks up speed. I like her design. She is very spacious.

I love my car for the most part. However it does not really give me a lot of miles to. The gallon. The oil changes are pretty pricey as well. Other then that I do not have many complaints about my vehicle.

Summary:
Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain model year 2007-2011 Honda CR-V, 2011-2015 CR-Z, 2010-2014 FCX, and Insight, 2009-2013 Fit, 2013-2014 Fit EV, 2007-2014 Ridgeline, 2013-2016 Acura ILX, 2013-2014 Acura ILX Hybrid, 2007-2016 RDX, 2005-2012 Acura RL, 2009-2014 Acura TL, and 2010-2013 Acura ZDX vehicles.
