I disagree about the Accord. The Accord with the 240HP V6 can easily get it.

Also, if they put the 2.4 liter in the RSX, then it has the torque to receive AWD.

Wow that's a rediculous amount of power to expect from the factory......much less from a Honda factory.

I really don't think it makes sense putting it in the TSX. It handles pretty damn well for what it is and the price range it's in. And it sure as hell isn't for off-the-line traction
It would be sweet on the TL and a CL replacement assuming it'll have at least the 270 HP & weight of the TL.

I guess it would be a nice addition, but I still feel not totally necessary. The 3.0L in the Accord doesn't produce massive amounts of torque, and torque steer isn't a problem, so it's not as necessary.

If the car was RWD, then I'd gladly get it in AWD form.

The Legend is the name of the RL in Europe. I think they use it in Japan as well, but not totally sure. Again, Acura does not exist outside the USA and Canada.

Yeap. I am certain we'll see an AWD TL now. I wonder what will happen to the engine though. I would not be surpirsed to see a bump to 3.5 liters for the AWD TL. Maybe not the first year but later...

I would still rather see a 2-Door RL with 4WD.
I prefer my next car to be built in Japan or Europe.

The 04 TL guys are experiencing all the same rattles & quality issues that the Gen II CL is infamous for.

Europe ?? I guess that bmw test drive got ya' thinking

I'm thinking the same way. I'll definitely be looking at the country of assembly on the next car I buy.

I guess what I don't get is how Acura/Honda are going to play the IMA vs. the SH-AWD setup. What do you guys think? Like for the TSX ... it most certainly would need mo powa to go AWD (tuuuurrbo Acura ... not likely). Pretty sure if an IMA TSX comes out on '06 ... I might "upgrade" :thumsup:

You're probably right, but since this is the first one (that details the official press releases) why lock it? It would seem more appropriate to lock any reposts.

I'm interested to see what the 05 CR-V looks like.

Ok since you've been so generous with new info, I'll share some insider steel info.

*** Exclusive: Local mills are expecting to announce a 5% price drop on 1018 and 1045 grade cold drawn steel next month! ***


There! Now don't tell anybody or it's going to end up on SteelSpies.com... those thieving bastards!
