In the low-mid $20k range, moderately luxurious and sort of sporty used car market, a 2016-ish TLX SH-AWD Advance can be had. It has features that I like, such as cooled seats and adaptive cruise, plus a good V6. Looking at various reviews, the 9 speed auto doesn't get much love. CR gave it 1/5 in the reliability department, which seems odd, since it's basically an AWD Accord. Is this something that has been fixed via a software update, or is it more serious than that?
It also comes in brown, which is cool.
