    Nah. @ScottyKilmer, Acura engines suffer from oil consumption problems! Please look this up, TSB 13-006. I own a 2011 TSX and it suffered from this issue as does the updated TLX. Acura has done a good job hiding this.

    Hey Scotty, I'm thinking about buying a 2016 Acura RLX Technology. It's a certified pre-owned (we know what that means lol). But all jokes aside, it has 21k miles and looks like it might have been a lease vehicle. Should I turn the other way and run? Anything in particular I should take a good look at? What do you think? Thanks for reading, can't wait to hear what you think.

    wicc house not a problem at all...back in 2014, i was looking at the RLX...i was gonna trade my 2009 RL in for a 2012 RLX...i ended up keeping my RL and bought a 2011 Acura ZDX...they didn’t make the ZDX for long but i didn’t care...i loved the interior and the way it drove...i’ve never wanted what every other neighbor of mines are subjective...therefore, whatever appeals to you...either way, it’s all about your personal preference and your individual experience...

    I recently purchased a 2016 ilx aspec and I absolutely love it. My only issue with it is aloud thumpping noise in the right rear tire. It's still under warranty so my mechanic told me to take it to the dealer to replace the rear damper bushings. Unfortunately the noise is not being caused by components in the shock. I've been to two dealers ships now and no one can find the cause of the noise. I suspect it something the suspension at this point

    It's just too bad that Honda/Acura has changed recently. They don't honor their new car warranties. They make excuses. Had a 2016 Top trim Limited CRV. Had oil dilution engine issue from direct injection. Many excuses were made, and problem was never fixed, never again Honda!

    I agree with Scotty. But he'll the 2005 Acura RL was ahead of its time. With 306 hp it's has paddle shifters, auto sport shift, dual-zone climate control, OnStar, satellite radio all-wheel drive, heated seats both driver and passenger, one of the biggest navigation screens of its time. You can also change the colors on the radio and nav display . It also has voice command, there's a display that tells you the PSI in each tire, run-flat tires, keyless entry and also keyless start up and the list goes on. I have an 06 as a daily driver.

    @M. I. Smooth actually variable valve timing on the exhaust cam has more to do with thermal efficiency. Air fuel ratios are more of an emissions ordeal. And yes Subaru ej series engine has been around since 1989 great Engine. I'm glad to hear you know it's an engine and not an electric motor.

    Emissions becoming more strict made them try to make engines with less polutants and high rev engines with vtec on exhaust valves dont comply today. Is any company using an engine from 1999 still

  68. MrChad97Z

    MrChad97Z2 개월 전

    That is exactly right about "Incremental improvements" and All their technology builds on itself. They seldom scrap everything and start over like GM does every 5 YEARS! crazy. If you compare a Civic suspension to an Accord or Acura TL suspension, the components are almost identical expect the CIVIC parts are just "smaller". I am glad to see Honda finally got rid of the Timing BELT and now using a timing CHAIN. Belts may be cheaper to produce but it is a guaranteed 1,000 dollar maintenance at interval. Anyway, there are other occupations that also follow the model of few changes at a software development.

  69. MrChad97Z

    MrChad97Z2 개월 전

    in my experience, honda is the worst car to try to modify. The suspensions are 5 link and if you try to lower it, it can cause multiple issues and changing out the radio is next to impossible because it is integrated, and don't ever try to change the color of the dash by swapping out bulbs for colored LED's because all the power circuits are balanced and hanging on by a thread, and you can short circuit something out and do permanent damage to like the MICS panel. So, in my opinion, Honda/Acura is the WORST vehicles to try to modify.

    Great video ! And great car . If you want a more comfortable ride with the same engine and transmission, go for the Acura TLX base model (4 cylinder fwd) . The ILX is based on the 2012-2015 Honda Civic chassis not the 2016 and up ( just incase people think the type r civic or 2016 + are the same car , they’re not .
