Congrats on the new ride! Smart move - always a good idea to get the last year in a model run as all/most of the bugs have been worked out,

VCM on the TLX is only on the 6 Cylinder engines. The i4 is a direct injection engine so it will, by nature, have a bit more noise (and perhaps vibration) at idle than a non DI engine.

The color is certainly special - but I think most savvy car people are waiting for the next gen. If I'm spending 50k on a car I'd take a deep look at all the other players in this space. Color is...

Congrats and welcome aboard! No car is perfect and I agree - the TLX is a great value and checks a lot of the boxes for many people as long as you're not looking for a true sports car.

Enjoy!

To be fair - the TLX is nearing the end of a model run and the Accord started a new model run last year. It makes sense that it caught up with the Acura. When the TLX was launched in 2014 it far...

Interesting. I thought they already committed to a Type-S for the popular models. Frankly given the sales trends I would think an RDX Type-S would have a better chance at success than a TLX Type-S.
