Hey psheu! Congrats! I think we have 4 Florida SH members here. 1 Jax, 2 Tampa Bay and now you. We have more SH per capita in FL than any other state in the union. Who says SHAWD is for snow belt only???

Okay, I'll contribute to thread creep by saying that we have a 2016 PAWS Tech model and it's been great. We got it in March and so far have 19600 miles on it. The difference in price at the time and the limited trunk space were the deciding factors for the Paws model. Gas is about $2.15 a gal here in Memphis so the recovery time for the price difference is pretty long. We love the car but we're Acura loyalists and like non mainstream cars ( previous car was a 2010 ZDX.). This is our best car yet. In some ways I'm thankful that Consumer Reports trashed the car in 2014. It is now a tremendous bargain and with the '16 model most of the complaints have been remedied.

As noted above there are a number of differences between the Sports Hybrid and the PAWS models. The SH suffers from a much smaller truck. It is also carries about 10% higher price. The biggest advantage of the SH is not the gas mileage but the performance and handling of the car. As has been said here before, the handling of the SH is best understood by a test drive. The electric motors add instant acceleration and torque-vectoring AWD. It provides a much different driving experience than any previous cars that I had driven. After the initial mediocre reviews of the PAWS I waited to see what the Sports Hybrid was all about. One test drive was all it took for me to be sold. The interiors of the cars are almost carbon copies of each other (the SH Advance does have a heads up display which most of us really like but it is really frosting on the cake. I now have over 2 years and 24,000 miles in the seat of my SH and have no regrets with my decision.

Malibu pretty much says it all. My electrical gremlin aside, I have enjoyed the Sport Hybrid and feel it is well worth the extra, especially now that you can get a 2016 for far less than MSRP. The PAWS is definitely not chopped liver, though. That big trunk and the larger fuel tank in the PAWS make it a great road trip car.

The affinity towards my new RXL SH-AWD is growing by days...they said the car starts to depreciate (include how you felt) when you drive off the lot, not in this case... It just keep getting better and better (like the gas mileage)... Coming from experienced long line of RL's, I need that SH-AWD. To me, having a bigger trunk means you'll just allow more stuff to be piled in there. I prefer them to be empty so it doesn't bother me at all This is the best choice out there right now. The closest competitor out there is Lexus GSh and RLX still got beat it hands down. There are plenty of great P-AWS around. but having the SH-AWD gives you that exclusivity that makes them exotic cars jealous

I have yet to see another SH in the wild. One I did see at a local dealership was purchased from someone out of state. Makes me think they should just keep the cars at the point of entry and deliver to dealers when a match is made.

Now that you mention it, the only other one that I've ever seen was one that was from out of state, temporarily at my local dealer for troubleshooting a CEL.

45000 miles, and only one other one.

Tampa: Head to Long Island NY

I saw two Thanksgiving week in Nassau County, Long Island. One on the Southern State Parkway (a light greenish gold color I have never seen before). The other one (Grey) was at Beiner Audi in Great Neck, NY while I was having my sister's Audi in for warranty repairs. The owner of RLX Hybrid was buying a new Audi A3 for his very young (17?) son. The son was beaming in delight (lucky kid)!

Kinda wishing I had my Sport Hybrid back. I am seriously missing the HUD. How did I ever live without one? That, other than the drivetrain and the huge back seat, is my favorite feature of the car. If you see my CBP rolling around in the Cleveland area, it's dealership personnel testing it.

They were testing it on the I-90 at about 100.

Red face Udate


Recently discovered that the the Director of where I work, purchased a RLX. He is a kind of high profile in his profession and makes @ least a 7 digit salary so I am surprised he did not get something a little flashier. This marks the 3rd RLX in my department; me being the 1st and the 2nd person buying theirs because they liked mine so much. This is killing my goal of having a rare care .......

Over the weekend, I was visiting someone and saw a RLX parked across the street. It was either a 2014 base or navi as it had the 18" wheels. Also on the road trip, I saw 2 more RLXs.

It has taken like 4 years but I am starting to see them with some more regularity. Patiently waiting for the MMC or hopefully the FMC ...........

Maybe not Acura's corporate offices, but Honda's aircraft products HQ is in Greensboro, NC

Dang. Mind if I ask what area/company you work in?

7-figure salary seems like either mid-high level management at a large company or a very good small business owner.

Of course the stereotype is a rich guy is gonna go for the typical rich guy car (S-Class, 7-series, Lexus LS, etc.) but sometimes they don't give a crap about cars and will do whatever.

I know a guy who makes over 300k at my hospital and drives a Corolla....

And some do care. My attorney does very well. His first car was a Honda Accord. Every car he owned was a Honda Accord. He will not own anything else...until this past week he purchased and RLX Advance (the last Accord passed to his newly licensed daughter). He decided he wanted to break from the Accord trend, and wanted something more upscale (he gets teased a lot from his partners) but did not want to leave Honda. When I was in his office Wednesday he asked me about my RLX. He did not know it is an Acura. In the conversation I told him it is the Honda LEGEND / Acura RLX and serves as the flagship of both brands. Teasing I told him it is possible to re-badge the RLX as a Honda....or as I have done a LEGEND. He bought the car Friday. I gave him a LEGEND badge (I had spares) for Christmas!

Ha! Interesting. I think the RLX is an exact target for his kind of audience....wealthy but seems very conservative (not talking about politics) in lifestyle/choices and possibly somewhat stuck on a brand. It's definitely an understated luxury/flagship car that's not brash nor loud nor scream look-at-me.

Nice sale. You know he's going to go the entire rebadge route now.

I work in the college athletics field.

1 of the main reasons I picked a RLX over an MDX was because there are MDXs everywhere here and I wanted to to be different. Now there are 3 in my immediate workplace. Funny how the world works.

The Acura dealerships in my area should be thanking me.

Unicorn Day

Saw a dark grey RLX yesterday. The first I had seen since I turned mine in last August. Very subtle. You have to look hard to determine that it is an RLX and not another Acura sedan.

I also saw a ZDX. I believe it was my first live sighting. Rather odd appearance.

I have to say that the Jewel Eye headlights have done well to distinguish Acura from other brands - even with the myriad of LED faces we now see on the road. It is a much more appealing signature than the grille has been. I too sometimes confuse Acura vehicles at distance (as I do with BMW and Mercedes) as the 'face' of the lineup has a familiar look. I can spot the Jewel Eyes at distance and know it is an Acura. But what I like of the RLX is the double row Jewel Eyes. It makes the RLX distinguished from the remainder of the fleet. That is, if you ever spot one in the wild. And the few I have spotted my eye immediately went to the turn signals / fog lights below the bumper to determine if it was PAWS or SH. And still, to date I have yet to cross another SH in the wild.

Wink Zdx


What a coincidence: I just started looking @ used ZDXs as a possible 2nd car. I think that I have only ever seen 2 in the wild, and of course it is that kind of rarity that appeals to me. Sadly, I can only find a couple of used ones & they are all ~$20,000; I am not spending that much on a vehicle just for funsies.

@ the time, I did not really think that much of the ZDX but looking @ it now, Acura was trying to be a little more upscale there. I wish Acura still made it (with improvements), especially now that BMW & Mercedes have their versions out. Acura needs another mid-level luxury vehicle to keep it from being too entry-level a la Buick.

Also, I remember that ZDX had advanced ventilated seats that drew hot air away from you instead blowing cool air; does Acura still use this or was that just for the ZDX?

I happened to notice another RLX in the parking lot of my new office location few days ago.. I was surprised and got carried away and parked my car next to it. The other car was P-AWS and mine was SH-AWD. In the picture the messy one was mine

I have a neighbor down the hill from me who has a RLX. I have yet to see which model it is. Next time I roll by and they have their garage door up, I'll sneak a peak, and hopefully won't get shot at!

Cool Another


Saw a silver 1 in the opposite lane coming at me. Altho I do at times feel the double jewel eyes might be overkill, I am glad that the RLX has them. It makes it easily distinguishable at night from the other Acuras but also helps give it the exclusive flagship status. I think that the only other special thing that the RLX have is the Krell audio system.

Speaking of jewel eyes, I had a guest in mine & she commented on how wide spread the lights were. Acura really should emphasize this more as I have heard many times people complain that the RLX does not have active headlights. The thing is, with jewel eyes you do not need them.

1st 2017 RLX SH: Lonestar

2015 RLX SH not offered in USA

1st RLX SH I've seen in the wild: TBA

Thought I should comment on this thread. I live 20 minutes from the nearest Acura dealer and I see at least 2-3 a day commuting to and from work. I always do a double take when seeing them. They always catch my eye, very elegant. Seems like people are buying them in the St.Louis area.

Saw a silver PAWS yesterday in the eastern suburbs of Cleveland near my office. First I've seen in awhile.

I never installed them. I'm willing to let them go for an appropriate offer. It'll fund something else for my NSX.

However....waiting to see what happens with my problem Sport Hybrid first....if I end up with another, I'll finally be able to install them.

On another note, I was sighted on the freeway, and given a nod of approval, by a guy in a nicely debadged, grey TSX on my morning commute. It's the Legend badge, I tell you, people know it.

Indeed. I think every compliment I have gotten from strangers was linked to the LEGEND acknowledgment. Come to think of it, most all the compliments I got on my RL was after I added the LEGEND badge.

oh...and no worries on the sills. He can afford to order them from the JDM supplier - considering what he bills me!

Two RLX Hybrids (mine is on the right) parked at Friendly Shopping Center in Greensboro, NC this afternoon. The car on the left had a Hendricks Acura Charlotte license holder. It had the same wheels as my previous 2014 PAWS so I'm thinking it is a 2014.

That's awesome! Plus, you're both in NC (I'm in Charlotte).

I was on Coliseum Drive in Greensboro at 5:00 PM today when a Pomegranate Red with what appeared to be the Seacoast interior pulled up alongside at a stoplight. When it pulled away it was a hybrid with Hendrick Acura Charlotte license plate frame. Imagine two rare early vintage RLX hybrids side by side at a stoplight in Greensboro!
