Re: very tempted to trade for Hemi

People on the Acura forum thought I was crazy for trading in my new TSX for another new TSX because I grew to hate the color. I ended up paying around $6000 for the "opportunity" but I was happy I did it. Do what you have to do.

Re: very tempted to trade for Hemi

I'm confused, after reading these forums for a while it always seemed to me the shudder problem was effecting the hemi owners more then the V6 owners? Or is the OP not talking about shudder problems?

I didn't have a shutter issue I had a noise issue which was taken care of by replacing the transfer case among other things. After thinking about it I think I will wait for the 8 speed to come out and be on the road for a little while before I do anything. My noise issue has been taken care of I have a slight vibration when accelerating from a stop that I did not have before, but I guess I will just live with it.

Cool im on the Acura forums to. Just like you said same thing over there. I did something similar I traded my 07 base nav TL for a 07 Type S. Some say its not worth it I say hell yes it was worth it and soo glad I did. Loved that thing! So much infact im second guessing the whole Grand Cherokee thing and now considering getting into a 07/08 TL-S with the 6spd manual. Drove one last week and it was amazing!
Sorry I was off topic lol




Back to the OP. I know what you mean something about having a brand new car thats been all torn apart and had so much work done to it. Even though it may be repaired to be just as good something emotionally just says its not the same. To me the whole point of buying a brand new car is to have something that hasnt been molested, absused, taken apart and re-assembled 20 times etc etc. If the money factor doesnt bother you I say absolutely go for it!!!!!

Hope this helps.

James
