Yesterday I asked why you liked the RLX, but I think a more interesting question is what do you not like about it? Is there something you think Acura could have improved or changed to make it better? What do you think it lacks that the competition does better?

I drove RLX and loved it. Poster at Edmund RL forum said it had harsh ride. Anyone notice a harsh ride. I only drove it on nice paved roads. When my M56 lease is up in august, I will definitely consider RLX with advanced package. Dealer said they are not discounting at all now.

I feel the interior could have been nicer. This is not just a criticism to the RLX but to Acura in general. I think they were a bit safe. It still can't quite compete with the likes of Audi, or Cadi.

Yeah Acura failed at designing a nice interior for their flagship sedan, the impression i get from it is the same from looking at the ILX or TSX interior. The RLX interior should be making me say "wow".

Even the entry level Lexus sedan, Lexus IS, has a better interior that will "wow" you.

I dont think the RLX's interior comes close to being as nice as the Lexus IS interior. i still think the RLX interior still need some work. During an auto show I had a chance to sit in one and found the interior to be cheap and not justify its $50k price tag.

design might not be that great but who knows, maybe the interior materials are?

it could be the case that lexus designed a better looking interior with poor quality materials while Acura didn't do that great of a job with design but used QUALITY materials all over.

The design of the interior was the issue it was more with the material and lack of quality their. It still feels like a honda somewhat. Where your sitting in the IS you know your in a lexus.

Acura better not cheap out on the NSX. They should do what Lexus did with the LFA and prove to the industry they are capable of making a high luxury, high performance vehicle.

That is something that won't happen to the NSX. Honda won't let that happen. Since the debut of the NA1 NSX, it was known for it's handling capabilities which had help from the iconic f1 driver Arton Senna. I dont think they will ruin the heritage of the NSX. If its any car that Acura cheaped out on its the ILX but it makes sense being the lowest class Acura. Just wait it out an see.
