When Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder calls the 2014 Acura RLX "enigmatic," that means he's puzzled to the point of speechlessness searching for the appropriate adjectives to summarize the luxury sedan. It's sort of midsize, sort of full size; the Precision All-Wheel Steer system tightens turning, but not as well as competitors; interior quality is impressive but bland; a multiscreen media system aims to simplify but complicates. If defying description — and sometimes logic — is appealing, this $61,000 riddle might make sense. Watch the video and decide.
2013 Toyota Corolla S
We'd say the ever-popular Toyota Corolla is a leader in quality, comfort,
style and driving -- if this were 2003. But it's 2013, and Cars.com
reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder says the past decade hasn't been kind, as
competitors have surpassed the stalwart compact sedan in everything from
interior materials and controls to cabin space and cargo volume. Moreover,
despite reliable ride comfort, a returning four-speed automatic
transmission in a crowd of better-accelerating five- and six-speeds makes
it seem like the 2013 Corolla is content riding on its rep. Let's hope the
newly announced redesign feels otherwise.
2013 Toyota Camry SE
If the adage that "it's the thought that counts" held true for automakers,
Toyota's offering of its best-selling midsize sedan for buyers seeking a
sportier driving experience would have been awfully thoughtful. Cars.com
reviewer Mike Hanley says the 2013 Camry SE offers all the regular Camry's
customary comfort, roominess and general practicality with the added
benefit of a V-6 for zippier highway driving. Unfortunately, numb handling
doesn't realize the aspirations of the more aggressive suspension and firm
ride — and don't get Hanley started on that phony-looking metal trim
2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Review
Sonny, we can remember when 700 horsepower was just for
supercars. Nowadays, you spoiled kids have the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT
Hellcat, which throws what Cars.com reviewer Joe Bruzek calls
“ludicrous” power behind the iconic muscle car. Watch Bruzek at the
drag strip testing the fury the Hellcat hath in the video above.

2014 Acura RLX Road Test Video Review
The Acura RLX is an all-new nameplate for the Japanese luxury car
manufacturer. The RLX replaces the top of the line RL (which itself
replaced the old Legend) and competes in the mid-sized luxury sedan
category against the likes of the BMW 5-Series, Lexus GS, and Infiniti Q50.
The 2014 Acura RLX starts at under $50,000 but trims featuring various
audio and navigation packages can swell the price to over $60,000.
Learn More about the Acura RLX
The model reviewed here is the RLX featuring the Advanced Package which
gets you a host of safety, convenience, and technology features. Some of
these systems include the Collision Mitigation Braking, Lane Keeping
Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with low speed follow, heated and
ventilated seats, and parking sensors.
On the outside the 2014 Acura RLX looks much better in person than it does
in photos. But this luxury sedan still blends in with the rest of the pack
with its conservative style and mild lines. The front grill sports Acura's
signature look while the Jewel Eye LED headlights are the latest
interesting feature. The wheels are large 19-inch aluminum alloys designed
to decrease noise. Out back the standard LED taillights look like a lot of
other cars and are not very distinctive.
The engine is a 3.5 liter V-6 featuring VTEC that makes 310 horsepower and 272 lb-ft. of
torque. Fuel economy for the 2014 Acura RLX is 20 MPG in the city and 31
MPG on the highway. Cylinder deactivation is a feature designed to shut
down up to half of the engine's cylinder in an effort to save on gas.
One way that Acura is trying to differentiate itself from other luxury
manufactures is though technology packed cars. There is a laundry list of
technological features that includes Precision All-Wheel Steer, Agile
Handling Assist, Vehicle Stability Control, Rear View Camera, Acura Link,
High End Audio, Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring, Parking
Sensors, and more.
The 2014 Acura RLX is like a big, comfortable, cushy Honda Accord. This new
flagship sedan may just have to chops to carve out a spot in a very

What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the RLX: Some people say
"Finally!" as to meaning Acura finally as a decent flagship on their hands
replacing the terribly outdated RL. The new RLX now features more
technology that's worth noting and the seats are very comfortable in the
RLX feeling silky smooth like a Lexus. Acura's new signature jewel LED
Headlights are also a new first to Acura and it should lure some buyers in.
Compare to the new Cadillac XTS, they are both great cars however the XTS
will offer better technology and the Acura will be the reliability king as
well as the resale value king, A V8 is not available under the hood as well
as the RLX does not offer Real Wheel Drive. Power comes from a 3.5 L V6
with 6-Speed Automatic with a Hybrid coming later this year. All in all
great car from Acura.

2014 Acura RLX first drive from Consumer Reports
The Acura RLX has plenty of space and lots of available gadgets. Fuel
economy is claimed to be best in class. But this big Acura appeals more to
a luxury car buyer's rational side, rather than tugging at their emotions.

Acura - Honda - Transmission Teardown Inspection
This is a teardown inspaction of an Acura Transmission.
I shot this video very late at night, so please forgive me for the lack of
focus because my tools were acting against me...but, after ovrcommong the
frustration, I think I managed to give you as accurate information as I
could. I DO Recall that I kept saying 4th gear on the 3rd gear that is
smoked on this unit. 3RD gear was SMOKED! The filter was restricted. As you
saw as wel, the internal small filters in the valve body were also
restricted. These restrictions will give you FALSE trouble codes...if you
get any...since these issues don't give you any codes until it is too late!
THIS IS NORMAL ON HONDA'S...Sorry but is real....
