"All Wheel Drive"on by dj24760
Pros I've always loved the Acura line. MDX and TL are exceptional cars. This one seems to hit the mark as well.
Cons I think they missed the mark my not having an optional AWD and stronger power train. It misses the whole snow wagon ski trip crowd.
Summary I think I'll be waiting for a model with AWD. Maybe they should ditch the TSX and make a TL wagon!
Audi and VW have some great wagons now.
Pros Styling, practicality, sportiness, it's a wagon, mpg
Cons 5-speed (really a big deal?), price, no V-6...yet
Summary I'm in love with the styling. Contrary to the other reviewer, I find this to be very tasteful. You can definitely distinguish this on the road. What other wagons out there look really radical? CTS Sports Wagon? The absence of a V-6 is well... ya bad. But in reality, I'm sure the 4 will do just fine. It has enough sportiness for the casual driver and probably extra for an enthusiast. It's a wagon so duh, it's the practicality and overall sweet spot. Glad to see a redone interface on the dash and the tech is up to speed. Apparently having only a 5 speed is bad. I could really care less. Good over all vehicle.
Pros There's nothing that looks out of the ordinary here. It's pretty much a TSX with stretched cabin feel.
Cons everything else about this car is dull. Gas mileage is a mere 30mpg. Poor Design from 2008 for a 2012 model. No hybrid, pitiful 5 speed when everyone else is making 6-speeds now.
Summary This car looks too plain. Nothing looks special about it. For the price of $30,000 + I can get me a much better looking car and much more gas mileage out of a Lexus, BMW, or an Audi. Even Hyundai cars are looking mighty sexy and hot these days. Maybe they should be consider considered in these catagories too and make Kia compete with Ford,Honda,Toyota,Nissan, GM.
Thanks for your submission!
