Default Acura cars have no personality?

I have an Acura TL, mechanically speaking it runs perfect, gets good gas, comfortable. Passable handling, and performance. But it has no character...like it has no soul. Okay, so a car can't really have a soul, but you know what I mean. I love cars, absolutely do...I go hours just to see various autoshows, etc. All my previous cars, I have washed twice a week, given names to, it felt like they were part of the family. With the TL...4 washes in 6 months, no name, and it's parked very far from the house.What do you think? Acura has no personality?

My 2001 Integra has more personality than any other car I have been in. To each their own I guess...A TL isn't exactly a "sports" car either.

They have plenty of personality, You just have to get into it. Get new exhaust, lower it, get a big amp. for it, Polish it to a mirror finish. You'll be very pround of what you got. GO HONDA THEY DID A GOOD JOB ON THAT ACURA!!!!

I think an Acura has personality. A TL is a very unique car. Once you get it out on an open road where you can get it up to 100, you'll see.

I think you should re evaluate your sense of personality or simply get a another car ! Acura by far has been the best car to me

If you want to see a car with no personality, go drive a Lexus.

I have a TL. I wash it everytime after it rains and I've given her two names - one for when she feels sporty and one for when she is dressed up for a night out. Mine has plenty of soul.But more importantly...its a car. It is reliable, looks good, drives nice, and I got a great deal on it when I bought it. It gets me where I'm going. That's all that really matters.
