On my car the worst one for me is the gap for the rear bumper and taillights. Passenger side 3/4” driver side 1/4” Can’t unsee it every time I open the rear hatch.
Also the side skirts have a lot of flex. Maybe thats a feature and not a flaw?
I know it’s an Acura not a Lexus but

As a person of French Canadian descent I’m not sure why shipping is so high to our neighbors in the north.
The car bag is nothing more than a tarp with a zipper on 3 sides. Simple but effective bordering on genius.
80+ degrees figure good time to switch to winter wheels and tires.

Thoughts the stock Michelin Pilot summer tires (2400 miles so far) are way more sticky. Maybe too sticky, as they were great at picking up the...
Me (in my old 2015 Subaru STi) : ”Hello?”

The wife’s soccer mobile a 2002 MDX white with tan interior. Those were the years when Acura/Honda were having transmission troubles. Ours starated clunking and was replaced around 40k miles, the new transmission started acting up again at 80k. When bringing...
Type S Stock summer Michelin tires perform very well in the rain. I have driven through a couple of downpours that have drenched New England this summer and they did well. There were several accidents on one trip and we cruised right on through. I did get the stock gray wheels from the dealer...
So we traded my wife’s Mazda CX-9 Signature for the Type S and she’s now driving the Bronco.
She used to race the old square body Broncos with her family when she was young. We have been on the hunt for an old one to restore but the prices are still way high for rust buckets with no floors or motor.
While I was waiting for the dealer to prep and register the Type S they gave me a A spec loaner (CVT boo).
I didn’t hate it. It was a good little car. When these hit the used car market they wI’ll make a great first car for a new driver with a manual transmission of course.

How we got here…
I had sold my 2015 Subaru STi to a friend (who blew the motor 4 months later)and ordered a new Bronco Wildtrak. So after driving the Bronco for a while I came to realize I missed rowing through the gears. I know the Bronco can be had with a manual but it doesn’t handle like a...
Fuel tank is tiny small. Low fuel light came on as I was turning into the gas station. Only took a little over ten gallons to top off. The most useful dashboard display maybe the miles to empty one. According to the trip computer I’m averaging about 26 mpg.
