Bought August, 2017 from CarMax with very low mileage, currently has only 10,569 miles on it. My commute is very short (8 miles), and for any long drives we took my wife's Lexus, so this car did not see much road time at all. Car was well-maintained, mostly garage kept (we have a 1-car garage, and this one fit better inside than my wife's larger SUV). Only reason I'm selling it is that I just upgraded to a new car, and I don't need 2 cars at this point.
I added an OpenPilot unit from comma.ai ( here which gives you Level II self driving capabilities (on par with Tesla). The latest update of the software is very impressive, and each version seems to get better. If you drive longer distances, you'll love it (even short distances, it's great).
The car comes equipped with the AcuraWatch Plus package, which adds the following to the standard package: adaptive cruise control, a forward collision warning system, automatic braking for frontal collision mitigation, a lane departure warning system, lane-keeping assist and road departure mitigation. All of this is utilized by the OpenPilot system add-on, so that you can get self-driving capabilities, allowing you to have a very cool auto-pilot, on par with the best Full Self Driving option that Tesla offers (and better than the standard Auto Pilot in current Tesla models).
VIN number is: 19UDE2F79GA022927
Edmunds' Expert Review of the car:
For 2016, the Acura ILX gets freshened front and rear end treatments, including new LED headlights, for a sharper look. The base 2.0-liter engine is no longer available, so the previously optional 2.4-liter engine is now standard in every ILX, and this year it produces some additional torque and comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Lastly, there are several new safety features available, including a blind-spot warning system, rear-cross traffic alerts, lane keeping assist, forward collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control and a multiview back-up camera.
Performance & mpg
Powering the base 2016 ILX is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that's rated at 201 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic is the only available transmission (it's technically an automated manual transmission but it functions like a conventional automatic). The EPA's estimated fuel economy stands at 29 mpg combined (25 city/36 highway). In Edmunds performance testing, a 2016 ILX accelerated from zero to 60 mph in an adequate 6.9 seconds.
The 2016 Acura ILX comes standard with antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags and active front head restraints. A rearview camera is also standard.
Optional equipment includes a frontal collision warning system, automatic braking for frontal collision mitigation, a lane departure warning system, lane keeping assist and road-departure mitigation (which detects the potential for veering into objects such as trees or parked cars and applies the lane keeping assist and collision mitigation systems).
In Edmunds testing, the Acura ILX came to a stop from 60 mph in 118 feet, a few feet shorter than similar vehicles with all-season tires.
Just for additional information:
Car was bought on 8/8/2017 from CarMax in Plano, TX, for $27,934.19, with a total of 5,471 miles on it.
