So is the Acura TL changing its name to the Ronco slice and dice?

lol - when I saw the TL I said the same exact thing. Same shit with the TSX. Makes me glad I'm not a Honda fan-boy.

Lame, the TL was the only nice looking Acura.

So they too a G6, M35 and GS400 and made this? Ewwww...

Anywho, anyone notice the awful quad pipes that are not even properly finished (crooked?)

You should see Quasimodo. . . I mean the new RL. It has a hump on the decklid that makes me think it should be ringing the bells at Notre Dame. The TSX is a horrible step in the wrong direction too, IMO.

All of honduh's styling lately is either Korean esque in their stolen ideas, or hideously ugly. It's like they ran out of ideas.

I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Seriously, I can see doing that on an SUV because, face it, the grill is about the only styling element you have to work with; body shape is fixed with either the traditional box-on-wheels shape of the Honda Pilot, or the aeroed-out version of the Ford Edge or Nissan Murrano (among others). So that is almost excuseable.

But that TL. Just. Looks. UGLY.

Yeeach!! That is freaking disgusting!! Those makes the mid-90's GM cars look good in comparison.

I'd hate to try convincing myself I liked one of those.

I just saw a new pilot in Da' Hood that someone had gold plated that monstrosity of a grill on. It is downright hideous. Who is on the design team there? did they get the guy who used to design cladding for Pontiac's or what???

I think they are looking at Hollywood and saying ok, if that's what cars are going to look like in the future and your movie just made 100 trillion dollars, then people must like it, so here ya go.


too bad it didn't work for them...old body style, new "style features" looks more like some X-men mutation then a "real" design change.

The Pilot looks like it has been staring at the TV too long omg2.gif and as for the TL... well, it's already been said by everyone here.
