For a Audi Forum I love how the TSX has taken over.
I never understood why Acrua thought they needed a V6 in the TSX, never made sense. If they wanted more HP, then take the turbo engine from the RDX and make it a low pressure turbo engine, say in the 220-230 HP range. This would give the TSX more HP without having some of the FWD turbo issues. Add a real sport package to the car 6 spd manual and wham, got yourself a great car.
Being back in school for my masters, I needed to lower my monthly payments on my car, so I went with a 2010 Ford Fusion SE with 6 spd manual and the Appearance package (also known as sport package) have to say, its a lot of fun to play with. I got 235/40/HR18 tires, slightly lower suspension, and taunter suspension all for $24K OTD. It has a bigger back seat then the TSX and living here in Phoenix, the last thing I want in the summer time is leather.
But I'll be looking for a new 2012 A4 once I'm done with school, the back seat is bigger then the TSX, BMW or C class.

A reporter is looking to interview anyone who recently considered buying a new Lexus but ended up getting something else, especially if it was related to styling, the freshness of the product or something that turned them off about the Lexus.
Please email predmunds.com no later than Thursday, March 31, 2011 with your daytime contact information and a few words about your experience.
#11877 of 16087 Recall work...
Apr 08, 2011 (1:37 pm)
My IS350 is in for a couple recall items...
I have a dealer courtesy car for the next week or so...RX 450h. Not sure if it is the hybrid implementation or the CVT...damn thing can't get out of it's own way...MOVE...I'm screaming at it. After a while...and pulling my quad muscles stomping the gas pedal like King Kong squishing a hobo standing in the way of his blonde bombshell...the behemoth finally moves.
Sure, its very quiet, and i'm averaging 28mpg...because it drives like an ol Lady (no disrespect to old ladies...my mom is an old lady )
Glad I have a car while my recall work is being done...need my car back.

I'm in the market for a car and since time is on my side I've been looking at a leisurely pace.
My short list is the G37x with plan b being the Lexus ES350 and plan c being the 335.
In my heart the 335 is actually at the top of the list, but since I'm buying it's slightly out of my price range.
I rented a G37 on vacation this year and was pleasantly surprised about how much better it was then the last G35 I drove.
