(Acura Connected)   Pro: The new Acura TSX is fast and sporty, with lots of room to nod out or vomit in the back seat area. Con: The bass does kind of sound spotty in the sound system and makes me want to punch ad men in the junk   (acuraconnected.com) divider line 12

Wowzers,  A car ad that barely shows the car apart from high speed editing and lots of noise and light - must be aimed squarely 14 year old attention deficit demographic then.

Still no cure for incandescent turn signals, apparently. Other than that, it doesn't look too bad, for a glorified Honda.

Only Indians buy Acuras.  They should have gone full Bollywood.

All I can say is, I have owned two Hondas for a total of about 25 years, and absolutely loved them.

That *one* commercial guarantees that there is not enough money on the planet to get me to buy an Acura.

I used to drive a '03 Civic and eventually bought a 2008 TSX in 2011. I absolutely love the car. It's not a high powered luxury sedan by any means -- it's just a really nice car to drive. Not too big like a Camry or Accord, but not small either. Almost no maintenance required, and parts are relatively cheap (it is a Honda afterall).

I suspect that in 3-4 years I'll be looking at a TLX as one option (or maybe the last of the TSXs).

The comments asking who the tone deaf singer are fill me with despair.

Also proves that Honda managed a nice swing-and-a-miss at their demo.

Honda and Acura make cars for people who need a car but don't necessarily want one. They strive for average in all possible ways so that you can have a car that always starts up when you need it and can be forgotten about completely at all other times.

It's hardly surprising they'd be incapable of producing an interesting ad. They're not interesting cars and interesting (from the automotive perspective anyway) people don't drive them. Somehow I doubt the RLX and TLX will change that.

/ we'll see if the NSX ever actually comes back

And sadly, as recently as 2005, you would have been laughed out of place for saying that about Acura.

I'm pretty impressed by this level of nonsense.

Yeah, they're average cars, reliable as all hell -- for people who need cars but don't need to show off with them. I'd rather drive a GTI, but come oil change or any other maintenance time, I'd rather own a Civic.

I continue to be flabbergasted that people buy brands that aren't reliable, especially for such an expensive commodity.

The RSX Type S being stopped is one of the great tragedies to befall Honda. They really should rethink that decision already.

I'm in the market for a car, and would consider Honda/Acura.  From what I see, they are pretty over priced.  I've already eliminated Mazda and Nissan even though there's a guy at work that still drives a Datsun pickup to work sometimes from over 50 miles away, one way.  I think the Toyota is a bargain in the small new car market still.

I forgive you Toyota F1, nice try

I had a Honda Accord for six years. It was no more or less reliable than any other car I've ever owned. It was considerably more boring, however.

There's nothing wrong with being boring behind the wheel if cars aren't your thing and you just want something that goes, but lots of us prefer to own cars that are actually good to drive. And since Mazda, Volkswagen, Porsche Infiniti, BMW and Mercedes-Benz exist, we can have cars that are reliable AND good drives.

It's not 1995 anymore. Honda and Toyota aren't really that great on reliability compared to most other brands these days because most of the others finally got their shiat together.

/ well... Infiniti is apparently trying to remove itself from that list with the removal of the G series...
