Default What were they thinking?

Wife and I finally decided the time was right to move up to a new TL from
our Accord. Went to the dealer and was shocked at the styling of the TL.
How can Acura go from such a fine looking car as the past TL to what they
build today with one pass of the ugly stick. I'll have to keep looking.

I know what you mean. If I had to buy a new vehicle right now, it would
probably be a Lexus IS, but since I tend to keep my vehicles for about
10 years or so, that gives them time to fix the mess they made.

Too many angles. Interior looks nice, though...

You should look for a 2008. I bought one last month brand new fully loaded
for under 30k OTD.

It was ranked as one of the 10 ugliest cars for 2009 in some Web site I saw.
The new Pilot was also listed. We kept our 03 Pilot and I think my 0-6
Accord coupe hits the spot just right. And. my wife loves her 08 Civic 4

The good thing is that your accord will probably keep running well past
when they get around to the next restyling effort, and hopefully it
will be tolerable then.

There is one probable show-stopper for me. I hate the fact that you
can't lock the doors on the TSX without all the doors being closed. I
usually have my hands full when I get out of the car at work and home
and often have to set something down to push the lock button on the
remote. It's almost impossible to do when it's raining and I'm also
using an umbrella. Stupid nanny trick :-(
