I really like mine still. It's been (close to) a year and 23,500 km so far. For me, it's the perfect blend of power, comfort, price, value/features, low NVH, driving experience (SH-AWD), and gas...

As far as I can tell, it looks like something that goes over the headlights and/or taillights and/or bodywork to darken the look? I don't know what an overlay is either but that's what I'm getting...

Something is for sure wrong with it. It's discharging somewhere. Notice any excessive heat? Seems like a warranty claim to me.

Do NOT worry about fuel economy with the SH-AWD. It's not a problem at all. I regularly get 35-38.5 MPG on the highway at those speeds, as long as I drive on cruise control (adaptive cruise is very...

I'm happy with my 2016 transmission. I bought my car in December 2015 (2016 model). The SH-AWD is definitely worth the extra IMO.

The gear ratios in the TLX are pretty good (both the 8 speed and 9 speed), that makes a big difference. My SH-AWD is pretty fast off the line and I'm not eating tires haha.

The problem is that a flaw could be considered anything from "I can't figure out how to pair my phone!!!!" to "My engine exploded at 3500 km!"

They treat both of those with the same weighting.

If you're exploring the limits a little, change the damn tires. I did (went with BFGoodrich G-Force Comp-2 A/S) and it COMPLETELY changed the car for the better.

You won't get better mileage in Econ unless you heavily use the A/C (Econ throttles the A/C). I've tested it many times. Sport always forever. Econ can go fuck itself. Worst mode ever.
