TLX Video Review    (Score: 1, Normal) 09-12-2014 11:10

This review of the TLX ran this morning on a Dallas TV station. Yes, I know, he is lost in the '70s, with the hair and the suit. But it is nice to see some positive words about this car...

As long as you stay away from the FWD v6 the car is not bad at all. Go with the 4cylinder and its probably even a good value. Lots of goodies decent handling and good price. Just don't expect rocket power acceleration. If you ever find a SHAWD it will probably even more satisfying but there are other better choices (IMO) at that price level. Simple as that.

Hey look its 6SPD in yet another TLX thread, ranting about the FWD V6. LOL

The Sonata is a pretty good value. It looks better in pictures than in person though (IMO). But I wouldn't go as far as calling Honda/Acura crap.

51k Accord sales last month. I guess that's a bunch of crap they're selling...

Really interesting review.

Even he tried to warn the numbnut executives not to go to the alphanumeric naming convention!

Also interesting that he owns a TL now. This guy has reviewed every mass produced car for decades now and thought enough of the TL to buy one himself. Too bad he hasn't been very happy with it, but he was obviously enthused about the TL.

I'll be driving the TLX 4 and 6 (FWD) on Monday and will compare them to my wife's TL, although that is SH-AWD.

I will do my best to drive the FWD V-6 death trap into the ditch for 6SPD's benefit. It is supposed to rain all next week.

Psst. Someone needs to inform 6SPDTL that the right pedal has more than two positions. Sometimes it is desirable to depress it only part of the way to the floorboard. This technique is an acquired skill.
