Well enough abotu the fueds between the acuras and the lexus. WE was robbed by a greater source. Motor trend completely robed us. Well actually, they robbed the acura of its rightfull place in 1st the vote for motor trends car of the year. What a crock of **** that the POS chrysler PT cruiser wins. Its a piece of garbage.ITs slow, ugly and i cant believe anyone actually waited to get it. The IS300 on the other hand, well it put up a good fight, it was slower than some but fast than others, but if u read, not only do they say that the acura cl-s engine whales, it screams to a 0-60 in 6.4 and leads the pack in almost every cxatagory. So what if its 10 grand more that the pt cruiser, the IS300 is 5 grand more at least, with a package or 2, and the acura still destroys the lexus. I just think that Motor trend needs to spend more time in making diffent catagories for its awards, this cars (the acura and pt cruiser, dont belong in the same article, the pt cruiser deserves to be in the junk year and the cl=s should be in all garages. thats my opinion. Look and love .

LOL, the Acura board is down, so we're starting to come here, huh?

Nice photoshop job on the front turn signal lenses.

I'm not defending the PT Cruiser, but they've sold more of them than the CL and the IS300 combined.

It may be slow, and ugly (opinion) but its very MUCH IN DEMAND to the general public. Maybe that's part of the reason it won.

Oh, I see what you're talking about. So are you gonna crack open those xenons and clear out the yellow now?

I don't think anyone has done that yet.

Many people did that, but it tends to be a little difficult, and will void the warranty on the xenon's..

I think the PT cruiser was an excellent choice for car of the year. Innovative and daring styling, totally different than anything Chrysler has ever done and it's been a very good source of revenue for them. But on the other hand, I agree there should be categories for the award.

Are you talking about the TL? 'Cause I haven't seen anyone do it yet on the new CL, have you?

It has long been established that the Honda Accord Coupe type S is not a very popular car on this forum, and rightly so...
