Performance-Tested - How Does The V6 Compare to the Four-Cylinder? - 2015 Acura TLX SH-AWD Long-Term Road Test
It didn't take long for us to complete the break-in period for theV6 engine in our 2015 Acura TLX. We brought it to our test track for performance testing.
You may have set an all-time low-mile record for warping a set of Honda brake rotors...not by much, though.
Sounds like Honda has the same old brake problems.
The brake judder referred to after the sixth stop - was that really from the rotors warping? While I agree with @schen72 that I wouldn't expect my TLX to be track-ready, that does seem disturbing for the brakes to be so fragile.
I had the 2009 sh-awd and the brakes warped twice in a short space of time.
I am also surprised that they went down in tire size from the 2009- I had 245, the current version shows 225- man that's a step back.
Looks to me as though it's been a long time since Honda's suspension lab and procurement have qualified any new tires. This was the OEM tire on the Honda Element (um, yeah...) in 2007. So 8 years ago they were putting them on their $20k breadvan. What's not to like?
The 328 BMW is at its own league with a 0-60 in the mid 5s
