Great comfort and mialage.

I have owned both a TL 2009, and an ILX 2013. Both excellent cars the TL is much heavier. Prior to these I owned a Honda Accord and a BMW 325. I leased the TL and later bought it out. The ILX seems like a small version of the TL. Its controls and features are very similar. I can get over 43mg if I'm very careful. The 38 and 39 mpg are easy to achieve. The car is very quiet and has a nice tight turning radius. No problems for the first 15,000 miles and we love it. Cant say anything bad about the navigation system except that it wont let me enter information while I'm moving. I guess this is for safety, my 2009 does allow entry while moving. I'm a big guy, I wasn't comfortable in a 3 series BMW, but this car has lots of room. Another item to mention is the transmission doesn't have gears, it seems to accelerate continuously without shifting, nice feel. We added leather interior and door sill lights not too much else. We do like it, in all ways. I recommend it, take it for a test drive.
