#1962 of 3640 Bought a 2010 TSX - base
Dec 26, 2009 (7:52 pm)
Third Acura I've bought. Almost bought a MBenz C350. Drove a 2008 E Class 350 with 14k miles on it today. Couldn't believe how heavy it felt and how many little rattles it had and how rough it rode on the highway. In all fairness, maybe a tire was out of balance. Car looked great but didn't have near the zip of the TSX. My wife's 2007 MDX with 39K on the clock is absolutely perfect and feels like a new car. That's what did it for me. The door shuts with a very quality "Thud". I was able to get a great deal on the TSX with 2.9% financing and it's got to be one of the least expensive cars to own - especially with a deal below invoice. I had to sell my 2007 TSX which was perfect that I had bought new when I had to go to a company car. Took me about 1 week on Craig's List to find a buyer. Keep all the maintenance records and pay the extra for the dealer servicing and you're gold with these cars.

....,,,,,,"Japanese cars only, now".................
You are right about the Japanese cars forum.I was looking for Honda Accord and find out that almost 50% of the car for sell has changed water pomp and trim belt I'm talking about Honda Accord less then 100K manufactured after 2000

im looking at a 96 maxima with just under 150k on it. ive done a little research on this vehicle but not really sure what to look out for. Im taking the vehicle to a mechanic prior to purchase. What concerns me is the coil/plug replacement cost. The car is listed at 3k. from what ive seen that pretty much is the repair cost to take care of the coil/plug replacement. anything else i should look out for? thanks for your responses.
#1966 of 3640 The floor bump on the driver's side of the IS 250 awd...

How problematic is the driver's side bump in the IS 250 AWD?
I'm looking at the IS 250 AWD vs the g37x... really like both though kinda leaning toward the IS 250 AWD... just seems a bit sportier and more aligned with what I'm kinda looking for in a car right now.
My biggest hangup is the space issue. I'm 6'2"... I've had small cars before (cavalier, sentra, civic) and never particularly minded them. However, I can't help but notice the bump on the floor of the IS. After test driving twice, it doesn't seem like it'd be a big deal but just curious what others have found... particularly others around my height.
I really like the IS exterior and interior otherwise.

Not often I hear someone say they think the IS is sportier than a G37...
If the bump hasn't seemed like a big deal on two test drives, you're probably in pretty good shape, especially since all 6'2" people are not the same.

Don't get me wrong, the g37has a bigger engine and more horsepower, etc. I'm sure that by every objective parameter of "sporty" it probably beats the IS. I guess I just like the styling of the IS a bit better. I'm doing an "extended test drive" of the IS this weekend, so hopefully that'll help me figure out if the bump is a big enough deal to not get it.
