    In all this Acura/Lexus BS no one, as far as I can tell, has mentioned the archaic practice that Honda/Acura has of designing interference engines with timing belts and solid lifters. these are built in regular maintenance items. Interference engines with timing belts should be outlawed and solid lifters are for competition cars or cars from the 40's. Solid lifters require regualr valve lash adjustments to keep from burning valves and to keep the engine running efficiently. Honda does this to save a few bucks at the factory and throw extra amanitenance costs your way to keep the dealers busy.

    Do you not know where the local FORD dealer is located? Have you driven an Explorer? They are great looking, very comfortable, and have the best reliability ratings of any SUV. If you drive one, you will never buy an unreliable Acura again. Same goes for Toyota's. Time to find the Ford dealer.
