The 2018 Acura ilx, all-purpose, all the time.

My vehicle is a 2018 Acura ilx. It is got a bright-red candy paint job, and is very energy-efficient. I use it for all my driving needs, from going to work, to running errands and driving and picking up my kids from school. It does not have any significant problems since it is brand new, though I do hate how hot the leather seats get when the car sits in the sweltering sun too long.

- John G

The back reverse camera is perfect. Wider view shows innovation.

It is innovative. All the news features are great. Acura has always been a luxurious first pick for me. I can only imagine how much better the future of this company is going to be with all the great technology that has been put into these vehicles. My parents own the same car too and they just love it is very ride. It is so comfortable. Feels like an aircraft in my opinion.

- Odette G

2018 Acura vehicle worth buying.

This is the most comfortable car I have owned. I like the added security features that were implemented this year. This car has a feature that when you come close to going out of your lane the steering wheel begins to shimmy and when getting to close to car in front a bell goes off and lighted word brake shows up to let you know. I also like not needing a key to start.
