I've been given the TSX & even the MDX for loaner cars when I send in my Benz, so I haven't driven the TL yet. I do live in St. Louis, and we mostly get ice, rather than snow lately. But like I said, if I want a new car, like 07 I'd have to get the TSX, or get an 05 TL. Hmm...which one? lol. What do you think of the TSX?
The TSX is not a bad car at all. My uncle has one and it's lovely. I just love how much is standard in Acuras and Lexuses. If the TSX is the right size for you, then by all means go for it. It's probably the best bang for you buck right now.

Personally, something like the TL is the right size for me. Then again, I'd love me a limo like the W220, and I'm not bothered by the size at all. Driving the ML and a Grand Caravan is a great start to getting used to bigger cars, especially those two being the ONLY cars I've ever driven in my life, other than the Ford Focus in driver's ed.

Generally I wouldn't say do it. The only exceptions are if you can get a hold of an "auto inspecting company" that can go and take the car for a test drive and thoroughly look it over on your behalf.

The ML was bought on eBay. The dealer was smart though, you don't pay the full price that it shows. All it requires is a deposit so you know you won't screw them over. I'm pretty sure this is standard procedure for most eBayMotors dealers. The ML was also from a local dealer, so we could check it out ourselves (although we didn't do that, and so far we're not regretting it, *touch wood*).

That's good to hear, now the color is the only thing I'd be undecided on...I like the gray, black, light blue, & even red exterior but I'd probably want black interior. But yah I think the TSX is a sure thing
If it wasn't a TSX, I'd probably go for an older MDX, because I like to ride up high lol. But I can see where you'd be more used to the bigger cars. Oh...btw, have you seen the TL Type-S in that carbon bronze exterior? I saw it in person & wow talk about all around, unified nice

Yah I like those too...I like the 2 door best though, but it depends on how long I plan to have the car, because...a 2 door might not be so convenient

Yeah, I've seen the TL Type-S. I love the wheels and the color. Now I just wish they would give it RWD or the SH-AWD.
