      I also have a 2012 Toyota Camry SE 2.5l with the 5-speed automatic transmission with 72,000 miles. How can I tell if the transmission has been reprogrammed? It shifts pretty good but sometimes pounds into gear a little bit at low speeds.

      I bought the Vibe fairly quick because I had a 2006 Saturn Vue 2.2l vtec with 140,000 milles and the engine seized (gave it regular oil changes and everything, just really poorly made engine I think). I just want to know if there's anything about the Vibe/Matrix I should know.

    Best car I ever owned was a 2001 CL Type S. Only thing I ever had to replace was a front right wheel bearing. Eventually had to part with it due to becoming a father. I'm a 2008 Acura RDX now. Still a great car.

    Acura is great, 2000s are great, love the Rsx, TL. But 2010s designs were so bad. I just didn't see anyone buying them anymore like they did in the 2000s. Specially with the first gen ILX. Hopefully they will get better from now on. Great design language for 2020s. Need some upgrade and catch up on the interior tho.

It still purrs like a kitten (even though there is a cat living in it now) but it keeps going. I'm over 250k miles and I'm excited for the new models once they've been out on the market for a year or two. Absolutely the best bang for the buck so far. I love the brand.

    I've owned Honda/Acuras my whole life.....the Japanese work ethic, dedication, and pride is company wide and from the top right down to the person sweeping the floor, weather it be Honda,Toyota or other Japanese brands. They think differently and that shows through in the quality of the products they produce.......EVEN if it's made in North America.

    Good job Scotty. Although I do question the cartoon ships from Japan arriving in the US on the EAST coast? Haha. Owned a 1996 TL a few years ago. It was complex, but the basics were tough, like the front suspension which needed fewer parts replaced during the time I commuted with it over often rough roads than anything else I had driven before. And the dealer service folks here were great. If I buy a new car in the next year, I will be seriously considering Acura both because of the car, and because of the dealer.

    This was part of a program to destabilize the American auto worker and the beginning phases of breaking the unions in this country.. then finally NAFTA and the financial infrastructure (the Middle class) of America was decimated ! One of the reasons why PBS was so hated is there were several documentaries that exposed the role of American industrialists in bringing robotics to Japanese auto makers at the same time producing poor quality American cars ! America used to make the best automobiles on the planet.... smh

    THe NSX is a big disappointment to us Honda fans. The original was affordable, and very much a supercar; light, fast, well made. The latest NSX suffered from "groupthink" and changed its configuration multiple times as they dithered about launching it. Hopefully the next generation will be more true to Soichiro's vision for Honda, which was to make cars for ordinary people.

    Have been buying Acura starting with the Legend in 1985 and after 2 Legends ( would still be driving the Legends but they stopped making them) then two MDXs and presently a 2019 RDX. Drove them all well over 100k without a problem. Have also owned B M Ws, Shelbys, Firebird Trans Am, Buick GS, VW Siroccos, Chevy s10 Blazer, 3 Mercedes SLs and a Corvette. The Acura’s have more than held there own against all the others!

    Scotty NEVER lied! America has Totally dropped the ball. All the old tymers who had money bought a Cadillac. The Japanese changed the game. The Legend, Q45 and Lexus GS were king in the 1990s. Now we have Tesla and Korean makers. I think GM is done. They make cars that people LOVE like the Impala, Roadmaster, Pontiac, Grand National, and then they STOP making them for a Sucky redesign. The Camry and Accord have been the same improved car for 40 years. Why is the 1994-1996 Impala Not improved. Please explain in a video Scotty!!!!!!!!
