Worst Review Possible

I really don't think I've ever seen a review any worse than this one. I didn't get anything.. literally nothing, from this review. The thing that got her most excited was the lumbar support it seems... Is there really no standards for reviewers anymore ?! Literally no mention of technical specifications.

Especially for someone who races apparently ?

That was pretty mind numbing. Especially for someone who is a racer, she should have had no issues at all describing the driving experience and vehicle feel. Throw some specs even. My 12-year old niece can do a better job than this for a reviewer

It's not that she isn't well informed about the NSX specs, her delivery is just lacking. The review sounded mind numbing because she thinks it's boring to drive on normal streets.

Fact is these days anyone with a camera and a website can say they're a journalist.

Few publications do it right. On a large scale you have top dogs like MotorTrend and Car and Driver.... and Chris Harris putting them to shame:


Then on a smaller scale you have guys like this that get a bigger following than these publications that have 5 different presenters...

Not rally fair for her to call it a rough ride when you're in the sport plus mode. It's not meant to be squishy and absorb everything...

He has to think about it how the average owner would and they wouldn't mind it at all, if anything that rough ride helps contribute to how you're supposed to feel when in that mode. Honda/Acura has been good at that and at this point they've done enough to know what their consumers want.

Not only does the roughness emphasis the sport-mode but it also gives the driver that connection to the car too. Like it's not a soft cushiony consumer car, but a real high-performance vehicle

Exactly. If it was smooth like silk then it would seem like Acura has an identity crisis going on, this is no S-Class, it's a drivers car, something you can whip around the track carving out turns with precision.

Need to be able to feel and develop that driver to road relationship. Always key to know and feel exactly what you're driving on at all times when you're driving a performance oriented vehicle
