hmm... outlook not so good. I think Acura has spent their time selling to younger males than on females. Sad because, I do see the ILX as a car that can really appeal to females. The issues guys have with the ILX won't have as much issue with females IMO.

I agree, I think female drivers would find a lot to like with the ILX (AT probably not MT)
They bought a lot of Civics!

My wife drives her 2.4L 6sp car everyday ; I only get to drive it on weekend trips. Her last automatic was an 00 Accord 6cyl coupe

LOL Well that was sexist.
I'm a male that went with the automatic because it's simply more luxurious and worth more during resale.

First Bri's sexy ass Zenki 240. Ask her ONE question about her whip and she'll rally off everything she has done and had done to it. She loves her car more than most dudes I know.

Also, don't forget that women aren't very inclined to surf around Internet forums, even less likely on ones about cars. Go on Flickr or Tumblr or any social photography site and search ILX's. Plenty females are interested in the ILX... I'm kind of surprised at how young some of the women owners are.

Trust me, The Acura brand as a whole is pretty good with the ladies... lol.

Yeah I guess it was kinda sexist, didn't mean for it to be. I'm sure there are lotsa' women out there that can out drive a lot of us. Just wanted to know if any forum members were women.

I understood where you were going. I don't think it's sexist to say women are the minority in car enthusiasm. Doesn't seem there are any on here.

LOL Nah man I was playin around. I didn't really think it was sexist but any women hearing you generalize that they dont like manuals would probably rip you a new one. LOL

My two cents. The ILX isn't really on anyones GO BUY NOW list. Chances are a girl's "guy friend" will say subaru or mazda. Their parents will probably say Toyota, Honda, or Nissan. If their guy friends are into american cars they might say a new Camaro or Mustang.

The only time I saw women walk into the Acura dealership was when their father already owned a MDX or TL. The few times I did see this it was apparent they had money so the ILX wasn't even a thought. They went straight to the TSX or TL.

Just what I have seen and would imagine.

My girlfriend is a huge Acura fan.

Loves the Integra and CSX.

Loves driving my RSX and TL and is heavily contemplating a ILX 6 speed.

Guess she is a keeper then huh?

A buddy of mine handed her the keys to his (new to him) 04 G35 6 speed to test drive and she power slid through a yellow light.

Girl has some next level of agenda when it comes to driving.
