2024 Acura TLX Type S, a very nice sports sedan

  There are six colors available for the 2024 Acura TLX Type S; Lunar Silver Metallic, Majestic Black Pearl, Urban Gray Pearl, Platinum White Pearl, Apex Blue Pearl, and Tiger Eye Pearl. Every color except Lunar Silver Metallic is a $600 option which I find a little baffling, and for my money (if I had any) the only color to choose is the Apex Blue Pearl.  But let's ignore the color and get to the heart of the matter, a turbocharged, 24-valve, DOHC, 3.0-liter V6 that makes a very smooth 355 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. Did I mention that it is smooth? The 10-speed auto was excellent but I really wish Acura would use a gear shift lever instead of the multi-button gizmo they have. But I'd accept a million wonky gearshifts just to get rid of one touch pad. Why oh why do auto makers persist on using touch pads? At best they demand your attention, attention that should be focused on the task at hand - DRIVING! At worst they are worthless. Ask me about trying to enter an address into
