New 2012 Advance Owner

Hi all - new owner as of today of a 2012 Black/Black Advance.

Traded in a 2010 TL SH-AWD, so I'm very familiar with the motor and the AWD, but needed something bigger for kids/friends/sports equipment.

Looking forward to the journey!

Greg

Congrats and welcome! I would be curious to hear about your mpg differences between the X and the TL.

We plan to keep our X for a few more years and then take a serious look at the new forthcoming TLX? Or MMY refresh of the RDX. Love the space of the X, but miss the superb handling of a sedan. Hate the fuel economy of the X. Test drove an RDX and was pleasantly surprised with how well it handled, felt very light and flickable compared to the tank like handling of the X.

Still early days (picked up Saturday night, left for business trip on Sunday), but it's the same yet different.

It's obviously a much heavier vehicle, and the transmission is different from my 2010 5 speed auto, so the driving feel is very different, but it is reminiscent of the TL. Certainly it's very similar in its interior, which was a positive. To date, mileage seems much worse, but I only have ~50 miles and 1/6 of a tank on it to tell.

I was blessed with a wide variety of choices, and debated the issue of "am I officially turning in my 'man card' by getting the X?" but a few factors were determinative: (a) my family has gotten to the point where both my wife (with our Odyssey) and I are schlepping kids and equipment around (i.e., "yes, you've turned in your man card for something just shy of a minivan"); (b) I didn't want to get the TL again (I liked it, but a benefit of leasing is getting a new car); (c) I didn't feel like spending the extra $20K to get a 5-series/A6/E for a competitive sedan, or an X-5, etc.; (d) I got a *great* economic deal on both the 2012 purchase and the turn-in of the TL; and (e) it's possible that my wife might take the X and I get to get something else new.
