  1. Push-button automatic transmission?

    Bad memories, bro.

    My grandma’s 1959 Rambler had one of them, with silly little Pez-dispenser buttons that rattled on bumps. The two exposed Phillips screws on the escutcheon plate were a special low-budget touch to remind the buyer that it was, after all, a penny-pinching econobox. Photo:


    You won’t be surprised to learn that the flimsy push-button control broke, deeply annoying Granny.

    Acura’s three (3) different button styles — two flat-rectangular, one recessed-rectangular (for reverse), and one round (for D/S, whatever that is — drive slow?) doubtless are intended to facilitate blind-touch operation. But aesthetically, they are about as attractive as a three-breasted bikini top.

  2. A rant! You’re funny. You basically said it was a nice car but the stock tires are meh. Not all that surprised for a base trim version. We haven’t been moving a ton of these at our store because car. Most people’s priorities right now are 1. crossover 2. latest gee whiz touch screen features. They could mostly care less about the rest of the features.

    I believe the Type S will be getting Pirelli all-seasons or the option of Pirelli summer tires. I imagine those will provide a little more grip in the twisties.

    I agree the SH-AWD is an excellent system and especially fun in a car as opposed to a top heavy crossover.
