    For a daily driver? 26 mile commute, heavy traffic, mixed freeway/surface streets.

    Looking for something a little upscale in case I need to pick up clients, with a functional back seat, good fuel economy, low maintenance costs and decent sportiness (though by no means am I expecting to take it to an autocross).

    :dunno:

    I owned one before my TL-S. They're great cars for DD because they're small enough, but still spacious, give great mileage, handle well and have a lot of nice features.

    The new ones are even better. Some people complain about the power, but 200hp is more than enough for doing the daily commute.

    :cool:

    That's was I was thinking. I also thought about the Accord, but wanted to go a bit more upmarket. I figure this is essentially a rebadged, slightly refined Accord, right?

    How about an E320 CDI? It's a Benz but it runs on diesel so you get great fuel economy.

    I miss the great gas mileage the TSX would give me. Even in stop & go traffic, it was good.

    The TL-S, not so much

    get a used TL (no type s). interior is more spacious if you're looking to entertain clients
