All-around good looks and value.

2018 Acura TLX

This is my 4th Acura. I had a lemon BMW and until I got the settlement checking hand, I didn't know what other car I wanted. I walked across the parking lot to Acura and bought the mdx. I didn't know life could be so carefree. Even though the dealer was the same for both brands, the management was much better at Acura. I traded the msx for a tl, the tl for the TSX, and now the TSX for the tlx. I do not see myself ever straying from the Acura line.

The most interesting part of my car is the exterior design.

2018 Acura TLX Base

The vehicle performs well on all road conditions and is extremely fun to drive. The only issue I have with it is the screen. When the sun reflects over the touch screen in the car, it can sometimes be difficult to see what to touch. Other than this issue I think one other good quality about it is the gas mileage. This car gets great gas mileage compared to other cars in a similar category and the car is overall inexpensive.

Great safety features, built-in GPS, and a luxury feel

2018 Acura TLX

I love my car. It is reliable, comfortable, and has all of the features that I wanted, including safety features (backup camera, etc.). However, I have been having problems with the electrical system and the Bluetooth has disconnected for a while. I need to take it into the shop but have not had the time lately. The fuel efficiency is pretty good, but I have owned cars that have been more fuel efficient.
