Just like the new Jeep GC the old one had significant issues the new one is much different and so far seems much better.

Have you actually driven the 2013 or are you just assuming how it drives because it's a v6 now? I bought one, drove it for a month, and couldn't stand it! No it's not turbo, so there is no "turbo" lag but the way it's tuned, it's worse than turbo lag. There is no real power until you get 4500 RPM . . . . definitely not that useable in the real world. It feels like it has turbo lag the way it's tuned. . . Acura went so far overboard making sure it got good gas mileage they forgot to make it fun to drive. Believe, I'm as disappointed as anyone. I lost a ton in the deal to get out of it . . . but life's short and I wasn't going to be stuck with a car I didn't like.
