Great little luxury car for those on a budget


No issues (yet).

General Comments:

The car is beautifully designed, both inside and out.

Although others comment that the 2.0L I4 engine is underpowered, it still delivers adequate passing power and acceleration.

Great amenities (Premium Pkg), such as leather heated power adjustable seats and halogen headlights, Premium Audio and standard reverse camera.

Fuel economy is too early to tell.

Handling is excellent, and the suspension is nice and tight.

A surprising little car


Nothing as of yet.

General Comments:

The ILX is a very quick and snippy car that you wouldn't know until you drive it. The 2.4L iVTEC 4 cylinder is sedate at low RPMs, but is a total screamer up high in the rev range. All while being super smooth.

It has a good looking exterior, if on the conservative side, but it looks upscale and looks more expensive than the asking price.

The interior is put together very well and fits in well with the rest of the Acura line. Noise levels are on the higher side, but it adds to the sporty nature of the car.

The seats and overall comfort of the interior are very good. Stereo system on the premium package could be more powerful, but it's OK.

The transmission (6 speed manual) is an utter joy to row through the gears. It has a mechanical feel, and coupled with a slick and light clutch, it makes shifting so much more fun than an autobox.
