Am looking to replace my daily driver 12 year old Civic with 98k miles. Expecting a kid in the next 4 weeks, so we wanted something with more room than the civic, room for 2 kids in the back, plus maybe a stroller and a pack and play for the occasional trip to Gramma's house. We have a Honday Odyssey for our long hauler. This new vehicle will be my daily driver. The 5.0 is still my toy, and will continue to be so
Right now, I'm leaning towards the TSX, due to our love for Honda and it's reliability. The TSX rides very plush, and the seats (for comfort driving) is 2nd to none. The only con tho, imo, is lack of power. Being used to the 5.0, I shouldn't be surprised, right? Lol...
The GLI I test drove last weekend. Love the 2.0T engine. Throaty, and peppy, and definitely a distinct european german ride. Costs a little less than the TSX, but I am worried about the reliability. I have never owned a German car, and from what I hear/read, they're horrible at reliability esp with electrical issues. For a DD, maybe that's not a good thing
