you got it my friend. premium? who cares if anyone thinks you are driving a premium car. blah!! it is just a way for honda, vw, nissan, toyota etc etc to charge you a big premium for basically a badge. as for the tsx/jetta comparo. they are aimed exactly at the same market. also, all these engine numbers are really distractions. drive the cars for yourself. 40lb/ft of torque might be completely lost if the torque comes on like a diesel. i love the way my tsx has 90 percent of its torque over a huge rpm range. and the new jetta looks great albeit not as good as the new passat which to me somehow looks more european...mmm distinctive. not sure why. the cars that could make this comparo....bmw 323, mazdaspeed 6, tsx, jetta, passat, legacy, accord v6, audi a4 fwd, lexus is 250, maxima. siraqua what did i miss?
