Why would you want to feel cold?

The A/C when set to Auto maintains whatever cabin temp you set.

Period.

Laws of physics apply

The material in the front seats must stretch to allow the bolster, lumbar, & thigh support adjustments to function.

It seems unrealistic to expect it to snap back to a retracted position...

Ditto

Seven months on my SH-AWD Advance - zero problems.

The only thing I can't agree with you about is Apple Car Play - we use Android & Blackberry phones, so that is not something we would ever use. I...

After 7 months, Ditto

The only item I would differ on is auto start-stop. I always turn it off. Just a personal preference - it works perfectly.

I love my SH-AWD Advance. Your post almost sounds like I wrote it. Enjoy!

Congratulations!

I also have the '19 SH-AWD Advance, but mine is Lunar Silver.

LOVE this car! Everything works precisely as the manual says it does, & the features are terrific.

Cool!

I had no idea aftermarket HUDs were available. Never thought of it. The HUD is one of my fav features on my Advance. Too bad my 04 RSX-S is too old to connect or I'd get one for it.

Other than corporate pressure, Acura cannot accelerate the process.

Yes & Yes.

See page 456 of the owner manual. That's how mine works. I usually turn RDM off - just a personal preference. I find the steering wheel jiggle annoying on narrow roads. LOVE my SH -AWD Advance!

Besides accident recording, is there another reason for dash cam?

What for?

This is not meant as a criticism of those who like dash cams.

I just honestly do not understand why you want one or what you use them for.

Enlightenment encouraged.

Not a universal problem!

I have a little over 1000 miles on my '19 SH-AWD Advance, & have NOT experienced ANY of the issues I see people complaining about on this forum. Shifting in mine is butter smooth in all gears.

No A-Spec

I bought SH-AWD Advance. Would not have purchased if the only RDX style was A-Spec. Not attractive to me. If you like it, good.
