    Thinking of getting the Acura ILX Technology Package...

    I currently have 2005 Honda Accord V6, will I find the Acura ILX 2.0L auto to be much slower in comparison? I'm really bored with my Accord, as I've had this car for 7.5 years. I really like the design of this Acura and the price is within my budget. I initially wanted an Audi A4, but found that the car will cost significantly more if i want to add technology package. I'd like to hear your thoughts, thanks!

    Yes you will find it slow. Are you open to a manual transmission? Get the 2.4L ILX.

    You could also look for a used Acura TL SH AWD if you are bored of the Accord.

    i have an ILX tech package and yes it is pretty slow but over all its pretty well rounded. the motor is really the only down side but keep in mind its a honda, give the market time and parts will soon be readily available.

    It won't be that bad as far as power.. you will notice a difference, however.. the ILX will be far more nimble given that it's a few hundred lbs less.. but it is 90HP difference

    Hi there. I am too thinking of the ILX. The 150 hp might be a deal breaker. How does the car drive on freeway? Does it easily get to 70-75 mph easily? My dealer says he has one on lease and he has no issues with the acceleration. And he used to be a race car driver. Would love to hear from actual owners.

    My other options are the TSX for more power and luxury, or the Civic, since it's about $4k cheaper. Thanks!

    i haven't had any issues, its runs just fine just not fast.. its just as fast if not slightly quicker then a civic or any base car that you'd see driving around. It just not as powerful as what youd expect from a "luxury sports sedan"

    One consideration of the 2.4 for the 2.0L is the requirement of premium gas. The 2.0L takes regular gas right?

    Mileage is likely better on the 2.0L as well.

    MPG's from the 2.4 to 2.0 isn't that bad at all, not a huge difference, so if MPG's is why they included the 2.0 maybe it's time for it to go.

    I wouldn't mind paying a bit more for gas just for a better driving experience.


    2.0 = 24 (city) / 35 (hwy) / 28 (combined)

    2.4 = 22 (city) / 31 (hwy) / 25 (combined)
