Pros

Front wheel drive, 4 wheel disc brakes, Dual Air bags, long sevice intervals, and 8 way adjustable power seating. Interior equipped with Locking adjustable front console, Large center console in rear seats with 2 cupholders integrated, and rear ash trays. Wireless antenna, and premium sound system. Acura's top shelf luxury model.

Cons

Premium fuel consumption only, misfires on regular and shows a flashing engine light when regular unleaded is used: and the disk brakes are overly sensitive. Almost dangerous to tailgaters behind your car during heavy traffic.
