Default Wife's new whip...

Just picked it up today from the dealer. Just have to figure out how dark to tint the windows. Granted there are sportier cars out there, but had meet the following requirements: fit two car seats reasonably, get good gas mileage, and be "comfortable" for the wife. Tried coaxing her into a few other cars but no dice.

the tsx isn't a bad car. sure it's smaller than the TL but you dont lose much except a little leg room with tall people in front and back. no rear a/c vents either.

what I dont like about them is esoteric anyway. the person in the right rear seat gets an arctic freeze when the A/C is on.

And there's plenty of room for a turbo between the block and radiator!

Ya, those motors with a turbo and cams are putting out REDICULOUS power on the stock block.

My wife's driving an 05. It's been perfect for her -comfy, decent handling, reliable, goes OK. I drive it when we go on vacation - it will run in the mid-80's all day and still do about 25 mpg. I'd take it as a DD anytime.
