A TURD.... Another car made by commitee. I think I have finally grasped why acura cannot make a decent design. Does honda have a guy a single guy that is in charge of the design of anything and thus is responsible and dictates how everything should look? Not an engineer mind you, a real bonafide artist? The reason they are boring at best if not downright fugly is that IMO there doesnt seem to be any artistic passion in it, no center. Does anyone here think that the steering wheel matches the rest of the interior? or the door panels? or the air vents? The darned healiner controls seem like they came out of my odyssey for christ sakes! Its an amalgam of cheap parts and leather. Same thing goes for the exterior, Phaeton tail lights with the grill of the new TL with headlights that used a dragonfly eyes as inspiration. No harmony of design. This thing is made in Japan for christ sakes,did any of the designers ever visit a japanese rock garden and learn anything? F$@K!!!!! FAIL,FAIL,FAIL
JUST ANOTHER APPLIANCE LOADED GIZMOS. Unfortunately aside from the electric AWD system, none of the gizmos are new nor particularly innovative. SOICHIRO would be VERY displeased, and if memory serves me well he was not a particularlyteddy bear hearted kind of guy, he wold have probably had some choice words for the culprits of this POS.

I hate to say this but the RLX does not stir the soul nor will it my wallet! I wanted so much for this model to kick butt in an elegant way but, unfortunately, to me, it fails miserably. The design team did an excellent job with the NSX and it's incomprehensible that elements of that design language did not translate to the RLX...
