there are more than several that would question any review that wasn't negative about this car.

It looks to be a nice car and "limited". But I am having a hard time spending 50K for it. Maybe $3K over the comparable A-Spec model's street price is more reasonable.

No car is perfect. But I do agree if you can buy a BMW with over 300HP in the USA with $50K. Then the TLX isn't a good purchase. If you get a BMW with the same features for $60K or plus, then I will get the TLX.

But the article says that the car is a "genuine bargain"!

There are so many excellent reviews of the 18 and 19 TLXs, particularly the ASpecs, and given that every day I get into my 18 2.4 Elite ASpec I smile and enjoy the drive, I admit to getting a little fatigued by the shrill negative voices here. But each to his own.

Business Insider is just *barely* a legitimate news website. Most of their articles read like click-bait.

that's my only issue with business insider, they shouldnt be reviewing cars because most of it reads like a boy on christmas day!

"oh, boy! look what *insert automotive company here* dropped off for us this weekend! it's so shiny! you can tell *insert automotive company here* spent a lot of time and money on the paint, well I did anyway as the townspeople broke their necks while admiring the car!"

it's like, c'mon...stop stroking your own ego, author of the article.

50k for a TLX is a lot of money. I feel like I qualify for senior citizen discount saying this but back in my days (when I bought my current TL-S) I could get a very, very well equipped bmw 335 for just under 50k...
i think MSRP on mine was 36k, I know inflation and all that but in my eyes this thing isn’t worth nearly 40% more.

I would pay the money for the car if the ZF were not there.
