My Week with the Acura ILX Recap & Giveaway

Excuse me a second. I’m just sitting here reminiscing about my week with the Acura ILX. Let’s just say it was pretty awesome. And a week was not long enough. If you were following me on any of my social media channels, then I’m pretty sure you knew about my road trip.

For the first time ever, I drove up to San Francisco from Los Angeles. It was a drizzly and cloudy drive, but it flew by with my friend Nicole as the co-pilot. And it was pretty cost effective too, considering the model I drove was a hybrid vehicle! That means it only cost me $45 to fill up the tank! And one tank gave me over 400 miles! That saved me money, which I can use on shopping! Woohoo!

I didn’t get much time to drive while I was in the city, but when I did those steep San Francisco streets were a challenge. You know I’m going to be honest with you. The car didn’t stall or anything, it was just very slow trying to climb the steep incline. Besides that, the car great! It was comfortable, looked great, drove amazing, and had some cool features.

Check out the Pinterest board I created here of more photos!

I even had time to make a quick video on a few of my favorite features inside the Acura ILX!

Don’t forget to enter the giveaway below!!

    I’d drive down to NC to visit some friends (where it’s warmer than Ohio!). Since the car is a hybrid, it would be a much more affordable trip. #weekwithILX
