Our 2015 Acura TLX seemed like the perfect vehicle for a last-minute business trip, so I took it out for a post-repair shake-down.

    Wow! That MPG is great. Honda's V6 engines are stellar at cruising speeds. I'm averaging 112% of the EPA Combined rating over the past 17,430 miles in my 2010 Odyssey LX (No VCM). I must also say, I really like the understated styling of the TLX. Very sharp.

    I also really like the looks. The nice thing about understated style is that in 10+ years it will still look handsome.

    I agree. I was looking at an older, probably early 2000 Lexus LS400/430 and admired how luxurious and expensive it still looked. In 2030 will a 2015 Jaguar F-Type still have the same appeal as it does today?

    Because "Car photography 1.01" says headlights and foglights add "impact" and "drama". Rolleyes. Yeah, right. To me it's just annoying and juvenile, and I didn't buy into it when I bought my first motoring magazine at 16. Seems I'm not the only one it rubs the wrong way.

    Some TLX V-6 owners are reporting highway mpg of as much as 36-39 over at Acurazine and TLX forums. The ZF trans, however, apparently takes some getting used to...

    Heh, I am glad we got our Volvo S60 over the TLX. With a lot more power, even better gas mileage. t6 in mixed driving, over 32 mpg, and over 35 on highway.
