New (to me) Used 2014 ILX 6MT

Hello all,

New to the forum (obviously), having just bought a 2014 ILX 6MT with 27k miles, and a decent amount of the original Acura warranty remaining (a bit over a year for bumper to bumper, a bit over 3 years for the powertrain). I am a longtime VW/Audi owner that eventually got sick of things going wrong on my car(s), and wanted something a bit more reliable that still had a bit of warranty remaining.

So far (its only been two days!), I really love the ILX with the manual transmission. The power is solid (vtec!), the shifts are short and extremely smooth, and the interior and features are great. The only negatives would be the soft electronic steering and soft suspension. I plan on replacing the touring all-seasons tires with some summers once the weather heats up in NY which should help, and after the b2b warranty expires Ill look into adding a stiffer civic si rear sway bar. But I plan on keeping this car as stock as possible.

I am honestly very surprised and happy with this car. I was looking for a car that I previously didn't think existed- something that was super reliable, sporty and fun to drive, luxurious, still has a manual transmission!, large enough to accommodate two kids booster seats, and not too expensive. None of the cars I looked at previously (GTI, WRX, Focus ST, VW CC, etc...) was able to hit all of those marks (lack of reliability being the biggest issue). And a TL 6MT or G37 was a bit out of my price range at the low miles I wanted. The ILX 6MT is indeed a compromise- but a compromise that fits all of my criteria.

This is my first Acura and I really am impressed with it. I was always into VW/Audi (had 7 of them) and while they're still some of my favorite cars I just grew tired of their constant issues. My husband always had a Honda/Acura or Lexus (he currently has a 2013 RDX) so I began to see the reliable light of Japanese luxury cars. First non VW/Audi car was a 2012 Scion TC which I loved but it was missing the luxury features I wanted. Next was a 2009 Lexus IS250 AWD bc it had those luxury features and was so comfy but a little sluggish. That's where the ILX came in, after looking at it and test driving it, I felt like it was the best of both worlds...luxury comfort with that sporty fun-to-drive attitude. I knew I wanted the A Spec and was really just torn between Bellanova White or Catalina Blue so when a certified pre-owned Catalina Blue A Spec showed up at my local Acura dealer, it felt meant to be. I love it so far (other than the sound system being a little weak) and definitely want to make it my own with some minor mods.

Hello everyone. I just got rid of my PoS Audi and got this ILX. It's my first Honda/Acura product. I'm sick of always working on German cars and I'm sick of American cars not lasting long. Hoping Acura can solve both for me. I'll be honest with ya, the reviews on the ILX had me a little weary. So many negative comments but they all seemed too picky to me. Not enough headroom, not enough cabin room, shifts too quickly, same as a civic with different emblems, etc. But when I test drove it, I had no complaints. I'm 6'2", 250lbs so yeah I noticed it wasn't exactly roomie but it wasn't uncomfortable. What do you expect with a COMPACT luxury sedan? I'd rather have that and save on gas and weight rather than buying a boat. I agree with most reviews that it doesn't compete with others in its class like the C240 but then again isn't the ILX like $3-4k cheaper? And will last longer, not have as many issues, cheaper insurance (mine went down after switching with a 08 A4). After the dealer gave me an awesome offer, I couldn't refuse. So far I'm happy. As a first time Acura owner, any tips/tricks/hints would be much appreciated. Thanks!

This is our first Acura and I actually bought it for my wife; itís her daily driver. I had a 2004 Honda Civic awhile ago and I currently drive a 2012 Mazda 3 GS Skyactiv. I thought we would get another Honda/Acura sedan as Iím eyeing the Mazda CX-5 as our next purchase to get into a SUV/CUV.

First Acura I've owned. Bought it used from a dealer trading up from a 6th Gen Civic SI Coupe that was an auto. That car was getting old and I didn't want to spend any more into repairs since I wasn't planning to keep it for much longer. When I saw the car with the lip kit I instantly fell in love with it. Had it for almost a year now and still love it like the first day when I went to pick it up. Only thing I wish it had was Android Auto but other than that it's a great daily!

This is my first Acura after having two German cars before this: 1999 VW Jetta and a 2009 Mini Cooper. While I enjoyed the driving experience of those, so far I'm enjoying a SWEET and comfy interior, smooth ride, and all the technology. I'm hoping for good reliability now that I'm back to a Japanese car after almost 20 years (I grew up with Toyotas). While any mods I may do will be small-scale, I'm looking forward to learning more about the Acura world.

I have been around the forum here and there figured I should sign onto officially. I work at an Acura dealer so that helps haha. I love the content excited as I go to add mods to the car. I love this car only thing I would change is the exhaust would be exposed but sooner or later hopefully that will change. Thank you to everyone that posts and has valuable input.

First Post! Just bought my ILX yesterday, my first Acura ever.. The re-design won me over, so I decided to purchase one yesterday (with the President's Day finance specials)

I also own an E92 335i (N54 coupe)...it's been in and out of the shop too often over the last two years so not a viable daily driver anymore.

Looking forward to learning from y'all (and no more HPFP failures! LOL)

Actually was out shopping the market over the weekend too. I decided not to buy. For Feb Acura was only offering factory to dealer rebates on leases. Can't believe the sales manager actually showed it to me but yea, $2,650 factory cash to dealer for new leases on ILX. $0 for financing. I'm in no hurry to buy so I'm gonna wait Feb out and see if incentives swing my way in March or April. The best offer I got over the weekend was 27,800 + TTL on the ILX Premium w/ ASpec. I also live in CA but down in the LA area.
