I think after they killed off the Integra/RSX Sport Compacts they became a Rather dull Brand within Honda

I used to think Acuras were... acceptable. Better than Honda, decent styling for some of their cars (they did make the NSX after all.)

After my mother had a TL for a few years (or RL, can't remember which) my opinion changed. It looked nice, but the cheap quality of its construction become apparent after a couple years. The dash started bubbling when the glue separated, the leather covered armrests wore thin and ripped, and my mother (who is about 5'4 and not very strong) managed to pull the interior door handle clean off and break it. It was made of leather wrapped plastic. Considering it was a $60k car new, the materials used were definitely not up to par.

I was really interested in getting an MDX because of the 3rd row seating. However, I just couldn't pull the trigger based on how cheap my mother's car was.
