Today I had the opportunity to drive my TSX in the rain. It has been raining hard all day today in Southern California. I drove about 70 miles and felt in complete control the entire time. I have never felt so comfortable driving in the rain. I have about 750 miles on the car and the more I drive it the more I love this car.

Happy driving all!

I was not driving 70 mph, I drove 70 miles distance. Speeds varied between 50 and 65 mph.

Riverside is east of Los Angeles by about 40 miles. It is called the inland empire. Hot and smoggy during the summer and a little on the cold side in the winter.

You should check out good ole Mt. Baldy when you get the chance. On Mt. Baldy Road going up, there's Glendora Canyon Road that branches off just inside the town. It's one of the greatest drives in the area. Highly recommended.

AH-HA ! so that's how you messed your 2-week-old love !
I am just surmising - you may honestly believe or know that you were NOT going a bit too fast on that slippery street, but being 17, somehow the snow-drifting experience built up in you some boldness or fun-seeking desire that caused you to go at that speed subconsciously.

I know.....:mercy: ..... I feel so bad right now...

The technician from Acura said I probably hit the curb with 30km+ ... I guess I was going a little bit too fast.......

Welcome EyeDoc. Just wanted to let you know that the love affair stays for quite a while with the TSX!
