Other than my Cd player issues it'* been a reliable car.. The options the aurora have are just awesome.. Rain sensing windsheild wipers, projector headlights, etc.

I think the RL'* interior is better


The Aurora, while nice, still has more places where the plastic seems oddly moulded.








just my IMHO

guess I don't see it? It looks like the interior on the Acura sports fake wood? (or cheaper looking Mahogany wood.)

Ahh. my LSS'* major competitor, the 3.5RL. I remember reading a comparison test and the LSS won due to its much better performance than the Acura. Not just acceleration but supprizingly the LSS out handled the Acura as well. The areas the Acura shinned were interior quality and optional equipment.

i say go with the aurora, the acura is just a high priced honda, which looks kinda dated imo, where the aurora is very stylish and a car that wasnt cloned thru every division of gm (thats a big plus lol) and it still looks like a brand new style (sexy too )

I personally agree that the Acura'* interior/exterior looks a bit dated. Everything seems too squared off.

If you are still leaning towards the Acura though, do a bit of research on the tranny. I have heard some horror stories on transmissions on Acuras. I.E. needing to be replaced every 3-10k miles.

And the winner is..... the Aurora. Going to Vegas this weekend so I won't be picking it up until next week. The Acura kind of seemed Grandpa-ish to me. lol The Aurora power band is unbelievable and the motor sounds great. Can't wait to pick it up!
