    Honda's out perform Toyota Because there beating $500,000 lambo's in races and still coming in second place for reliability that's a lot of wear on the transmission. What if they tuned down Honda's to Toyota's speed that car would out last Toyota.

    Hey Scotty, I'm looking at an 03 Acura MDX with 130k miles for $3600 and it looks pretty clean and well kept. Any tips for making it last as long as possible? Thank you for the help.

    I remember when the Toyota Altezza first came here as the Lexus IS. Those early, ugly, clear Altezza taillights inspired a style copied by a number aftermarket companies. They seemed to be on everything. I’m glad Lexus is finally moving away from it. Too bad the GS taillights are reminiscent of that design.

    Noisy-ist car I ever worked on was a VW Rabbit , a overhead Cam and it was a Diesel , really long Timing chain , you almost had to wear earmuffs to drive it , the idle would go from about 700 Rpms to 1600 Rpms and the Timing marks were all over the place, it was under warranty and had to go back to the dealership, the cam gear had partially came loose, but Man it was fast ,just like a "Rabbit !

    I had a 2012 honda accord special edition, 284,000 miles later car still runs as good as new, biggest fix is the strutts and shocks, leather sits were better than BMW because it is softer, car accidents ended the car. Honda Accord 4 cylinder is that good, i am going to 2012 Honda Accord V6, if the 4 cylinder is that good.

    Scotty is exactly right! I have three lexus cars and they have not ever gave me any major problem! I still have my 1995 acura legend Ls! That Legend was the last time i will ever by acura because they went from sporty looking with the legend to boring with the RL! I have had 2 transmission replaced, replaced a engine and coolant issues! Since it was my childhood favorite car i will probably keep the acura legend forever! After that legend its been Lexus for life! Scotty is spot on about everything he said!

    Scotty I am about to enlighten you. There is no Lexus in the same token as there is Acura. There are Toyota and Honda. The only difference is that these are "dressed up" vehicles, over priced and especially today with the CVT transmission are bad cars.

    I am a Honda/Acura guy but admit Lexus Toyota may be a slightly better car. Honda/Acura has a very firm ride but I think they look better than Toyota/Lexus. I owned a 2004 Acura TSX and it was like riding on concrete.I plan on buying an Acura RL 2009/2010 this year, but think this will be my last Honda/Acura. After the RL, I am thinking of switching to Toyota/Lexus for better comfort.

    Both are reliable. Both are comfortable. Acura is built for speed. Lexus IS built for luxury. Both excel in different areas, but the extent at which they excel is pretty even.

    The IS is real wheel drive so I’d imagine they’d perform better than the Acura sedans

    Hi Scotty, i owned 2 Toyota Camry 1992 4 cyl manual. I bought the first one in 2004 and kept it until 2010. I bought the second in 2012 and kept it until just recently. I know what you mean when you talk about Toyota quality. I really loved that car. It was super nice to drive and very fuel efficient. Being the type of guy that look for quality in cars, I recently bought a used 2005 Sienna to use it at a car to travel. I was wondering if you could talk about the Sienna.
