I just picked up my '09 White LTZ on Aug 26, and so far I love it.

I took a look at the LTZ and fell in love! I had been looking at Accords, but the Malibu won me over!

Good choice, I didn't even want to test drive the Accord after I saw the interior. The salesman saw me sneaking off the lot and asked me why I changed my mind, I was a little too honest and said it was ugly. He wasn't amused, since they just re-styled them.

Thanks, it is obviously MUCH smaller than what I am used to driving, but I am finding it VERY fun to drive. In fact, I am REALLY having to keep an eye on the speedo.

This little monster with the V6 is a little hot rod...I LIKE IT! :)

Congrats! Thanks for your purchase!

And you have TWO Enclaves? Nice.

All you have to do now is replace the lexus with the 2010 LaCrosse and you'd have a perfect garage IMO. :D

Yep. It has almost has much horsepower as the V-8 in my Lexus and will certainly give it a run for it's money.

The more I drive it the more impressed I am with this little car!

I have to get the true HID headlights put in it, the nav and a spoiler and I will be one happy camper! (Especially the lights)

What puts me off in new Accords is the back end styling in sedans. It looks a lot like a Saturn.
Something is not going right with Honda. I also find new the TL's front end ugly.

Well, to be honest.

Lexus cars with V-8's are probably v-8's becuase of the size, and are probably not that fast.

I beat a BMW X5 v8 352 horsepower (full option X5 which is one of the fastest SUVS out [4th or 5th]) last night by about 2 car lengths to 80 and still pulling.

I also beat a Cadillac DTS which has a v-8 by the same length [2 cars at 80 mph and still pulling]).

So, yeah, the 'Bu can slay v-8 vehicles :]

Lexus makes some incredibly fast sport cars powered with V8 engines. If they have a big and plush car with a V8 that is slower than Bu it wouldn't be good for a comparission. Same as X5 and DTS, these simply are different type vehicles.
