    No More Acuras For Me — I had a 94 BMW 325 modified (and wished I had kept it) but I traded it in on a TL-S. I went through the front wheel drive tranny in less than 15k miles. I will never own a front wheel drive again. Ever attempt to park this car? It takes 2 or 3 attempts as it's turn radius is similar to a land yacht. After the tranny replacement, it would shift gears at 57 mph - could not make up its mind - absolutely unnerving!!! Resale value is lacking - now you know some of the story. One more point - do you ever see these racing BMW's? The German's build durable cars compared to these cars.

    Pros: dealership appreciation

    Cons: read the story

    Honda Tl — This car is great. Had some problems with it, but warranty covered it and if it even if it didn't i would be glad to pay $2000 to get a new transmission in here. This car is amazing to drive, great stock handling, great after market brakes. Great car for anyone that love luxury and power combined in one at an affordable price. Well affordable now used, not brand new when i got it.. and its great on gas!

    Pros: great car

    Cons: nothing

    Tequila — Performance: It has decent acceleration, mediocre braking, decent handling... Build Quality: It's based on the Accord, so it isn't amazing. Appearance: Anthracite Metallic / Black Interior Cost of Ownership: City 19 MPG / Highway 27 MPG Fun Factor: The sound of hitting VTEC. Near-future Modifications: ATLP Exhaust System, AEM V2 CAI, 30% Tint, Tokico Illuma Suspensions / H&R Sport Springs I would recommend it if it didn't have a flakey transmission.

    Pros: Hearing the VTEC.

    Cons: Transmission Failure (Mine hasn't failed... yet)

    Honda Car With A Bad Transmission — It was a toss up between this and a BMW 330i. I liked the 330i because they offered it in a manual transmission, but comparably equipped, the BMW was 10k more. The transmission could use some redesign, but overall, I'm pleased with the car. Been running Mobil 1 since about 20k miles, and it's got 125k on it now - not burning any oil, and has gotten 24.1 mpg (19-34) over its life.

    Pros: Honda reliability most everywhere 'cept the transmission

    Cons: have i mentioned the transmission?

    Powerful. — This car is so fun to drive! It accelerates pretty fast and has 220 horse power. It also has the craziest braking ability plus turning. I like to speed around in it and it does have a decent miles per gallon. It also is semi-manual.

    Pros: Fast acceleration.
    Good handling.
    Good braking.

    Cons: Nothing.
