I’m taking my ILX to Disneyland today! What would do if Acura gave THEM an ILX for a week?

Disclosure: I’m required to disclose a relationship between our site and Acura. This could include the Acura providing us w/content, product, access or other forms of payment.


  • If Acura gave us an ILX for a week I think I would convince my Hubby to take a day trip to San Diego or Santa Barbara – it would be a great time to see either city and not use our SUV when gas prices are crazy high in Southern California right now. I read up on their mpg and it’s great! I’ve been a fan of Acura since my friends in high school had ’em back in the 90s but have never had one of my own!

    Have a great time at Disneyland!

  • If I won, I would leave early every morning to enjoy a drawn-out drive to work! I would drive out to see my parents on the weekend and I would offer to take friends and/or the teenagers I volunteer with places they needed to be! Any excuse to enjoy that car. I love Acuras! 🙂

  • What an adorable car!

  •" target="_blank">Jenn @therebelchick

    Wow, that Acura is gorgeous! I didn’t even know that they made a hybrid! I Hope you had a great time at Disneyland!

  • VERY pretty car, and I have been wanting to try a hybrid for a while now.

    I have a 40 minute commute one-way to work each day, so I would definitely take the Acura to/from work!

  •" target="_blank">Kasandria Reasoner

    I’d go on a roadtrip!

  •" target="_blank">@MryJhnsn from iNeedaPlaydate

    Where wouldn’t I go! Hell, I’d take the week off work just to drive everywhere! All over Ohio, take a road trip to Niagara and maybe use it to run errands 🙂

  • " target="_blank">Linda Kwolek

    If I go to borrow a Acura ILX for a week, I’dgo to N.C. to visit my parnts. I’m in MI with a vehicleused by 3 and ont i’s last leg.

  •" target="_blank">Eloise Carlson

    If I won an Acrura ILX for a week, I would make excuses to drive everywhere. Soccer games, taking the kids to school, driving my hubby to work. I would definitely plan a day trip and see the sights: beaches, fall colors, anywhere and everywhere! Thanks so much for the chance!


  • If I got an Acura for a week I would be driving as much as usual (which is daily), but probably find some extra time to go out..maybe a little roadtrip. I would love to see what a hybrid was like.

  •" target="_blank">Anne Louise Bannon

    If Acura gave me an ILX for a week? I’m thinking a lovely long drive up PCH, with perhaps a few stops at the Lompoc Wine Ghetto, the Paso Robles wine region, San Francisco (where my daughter lives), Mendocino’s wine region. Are we seeing a pattern here?

  • I’ll make sure I drive it around as much as I can!

  •" target="_blank">lynda T

    I would drive my boys down to L.A. so they could see their Grandfather! And I’d look good doing it! 😀

  •" target="_blank">Jennifer

    If Acura gave me an ILX for a week, I’d test the hybrid’s true gas savings. I drive a hybrid now, but it’s such a big, heavy car that I think a regular ol’ sedan that isn’t a hybrid probably gets the same mileage. So…I’d drive up and down PCH, to see how far a tank of gas can take me in this Acura!

  • Wow!! If Acura gave me an ILX for a week, I’d definitely take a road trip with just the hubby and me! We totally deserve a mini-vacation away from the kiddos before baby Smith #4 arrives!! I would love to test this car’s gas savings out!!

  • Wow what a fantastic looking car!

  • " target="_blank">Adrienne gordon

    I’d travel to visit my parents

  •" target="_blank">Angela

    That sure is a pretty car! I’d love to take it on our trip to Orlando next month!

  • I’m actually car shopping this wknd!!! I just might have to check out the Acura ILX!

  • " target="_blank">denise

    it would be so nice to have a reliable vehicle for a week #weekwithILX

  • we are looking for a new car. so this would be a perfect opportunity to try out an acura as we have been interested in them in the past. can’t wait!!! #weekwithILX

  • " target="_blank">Doug

    I need one if these for my new commuting car.

  •" target="_blank">Amanda @ The Frugal Greenish Mama

    That is amazing! I hope you really enjoy it. I would love to try the hybrid side of the car. I am all about fuel-efficient cars and would love the chance to blog about it! Congrats 🙂

  •" target="_blank">Desiree Eaglin

    I would KILL to drive one of these gorgeous cars around for a week!! #weekwithILX Road trip baby!

  •" target="_blank">Marcella Cook

    I’m really not sure what I would do if I got an Acura ILX for a week. Our car mostly sits in the driveway as it is because we live in East TX and need a truck most of the time!! But I would definitely drive to Houston for the day!!!

  •" target="_blank">Neil Silverthorn

    Wow, if I got an Acura ILX for a week I would first pinch myself. What a killer looking car!! Since I live in San Diego, I don’t think I would go out of town. I would take it all of town and also show it off to all my friends. Would probably take lots of pics of the great locations around town, take some Instagram pics and create an awesome story of the great time I had driving this new car. A dream I guess, but sounds like fun to me!

  •" target="_blank">Elizabeth L

    What a stylish looking car! Is the giveaway open to Canada? 🙂

  • Nice car!

  • " target="_blank">Yvonne Condes

    If I had that car for a week I would pack the kids and drive to Tucson to see my family. It would be nice to drive a smaller car.

  • Wow that is so neat that you were able to test drive for that long.

  •" target="_blank">Grace Hodgin

    Looks like a cute and economical car. Enjoy your car and trip.

  •" target="_blank">Allyson Bossie

    I have always wanted to try a hybrid! Since we now only have 3 kids living with us instead of four, we are talking about buying a compact car and keeping the minivan for when all four are here! This might be the perfect solution!

  • " target="_blank">Norm Parker

    I love the styling of this Acura.ILX. It looks like a sports car and the fact that it is a hybrid is an added bonus. The next car I buy will definitely be a hybrid because I need great gas mileage and I am sure I would love test driving this car for a week.

  •" target="_blank">Ashley H

    I would drive it to work and show it off.

  •" target="_blank">Swarthy Daisy

    Welllllll….. I live in the Atlanta area. My first thing would be to show off the car at work. I travel to about ten different schools a week. I would document my weekly travels as I go and visit my site and attend meetings. I would make sure to go to dinner in the city. I will make it a point to finally go to Karaoke in Buckhead. It would be a fun opportunity for me to drive in style! I do that all week anyway with my job, why not push an Ack? (Hip hop translation = Drive an Acura). Enjoy! 🙂

  • " target="_blank">Mary Calabrese

    I would drive to all of my friends’ houses to show it off to them. And I’d post photos of me in it on my Facebook page!

  •" target="_blank">Melissa Lawler

    I would take it on a road trip to Denver!

  • Since I don’t have any time off, I’d make the ILX do the commute that all LA Natives dislike … get on the 10 freeway and go to and from work. 😛 If I was really sadistic, I’d drive it on the 101 and 405, too! I’d also try to get some ‘fun’ driving done by zooming around to grab breakfast, lunch and dinner with friends in LA and OC.

  •" target="_blank">Melanie {Life.Love.Inspire.}

    If I had the Acura ILX I would take a week long road trip through multiple roads such as mountain driving, desert, stop and go freeway driving and of course for some FUN spots ASAP! I have an Acura TL and LOVE IT!

  • " target="_blank">Samantha K

    I would use it to take a trip home to Pittsburgh to meet my new nephew for the first time.

  • " target="_blank">Heather S

    I would go on a fun road trip through the scenic mountains. It would be relaxing to be in touch with nature and of course driving a cool car.

  • " target="_blank">Amanda Hendricks-Selby

    wow. ever since my car broke down two years ago, i’ve been car-less. I think the first thing i’d do is go on a real grocery shopping outing, not just buy based on what i could carry.
    Then I’d take my family on a day trip to Mount Rainier!

  •" target="_blank">The Get Fit Diva

    If Acura gave me an ILX for a week, I would be overjoyed and super excited! I have always wanted to drive an Acura (I have owned Hondas, BMWs, and now a Mercedes Benz). I am currently looking to purchase a hybrid vehicle to transport my young sons to their sports, extracurricular activities, and now social events as well as getting me here-there-everywhere for work, errands, etc. I’m looking forward to following your commentary on the new Acura ILX!

  • " target="_blank">Sarah S

    I would take my youngest sister for a spin.

  • " target="_blank">Deb C

    I would point that Acura ILX south and DRIVE!

  • " target="_blank">Karen Gonyea

    Day trip to Niagara Falls !!

  •" target="_blank">Elizabeth - Water Rolls Uphill

    I’d take it to Disneyland and CA Adventure, and sight see in San Diego while I was in Coronado this winter.

  • " target="_blank">Amy

    Id give my tired old van a rest…it’s old and deserves a rest since there’s 6-7 of us without neighbor kids and it’s the only vehicle we have and it’s over 15 years old.

  •" target="_blank">Kelsey Apley

    Oh my what a fun giveaway! I would for sure showcase it to my friends and family and all!!

    I would drive up to my daugther’s college and surprise her! that would be so great 🙂

  • With the beautiful fall foliage in full bloom, I would have to take a drive north and surprise my girls with going somewhere fun!

  •" target="_blank">Brandie (@ Home Cooking Memories)

    If I won an Acura ILX for a week, we take a trip from Las Vegas to San Diego where we would go to Legoland!

  • " target="_blank">Sonia Sanchez

    Love the car this may be my next car

  • " target="_blank">Jorge Merced

    Hey Queen, I love the car. How about driving the car to NYC.

  • " target="_blank">Denise Truvillion

    What an amazing opportunity. The car is beautiful- enjoy.

  • " target="_blank">Kelly D

    I would take the kids to school all week and then on the weekend we would take a trip to Lancaster, PA to enjoy the pumpkin farms and pretty scenary this time of the year. Thanks.

  • " target="_blank">sarah hirsch

    i’d take a family road trip to niagara falls

  • " target="_blank">Crystal Warren

    I think I’d have to have a great road trip weekend with the kids…the leaves here in WV are still breathtaking in their fall colors and we’d have to have a little road trip to see the leaves last gift of beauty to us! Our state has some quirky fall festivals coming up in the last days of fall like some pumpkin festivals or walnut festivals so we’d pick one (or two) and enjoy some native fun!

    I would take a road trip with the family to visit my brother and see my niece and nephew in Tennessee for sure. Thanks for the chance to win

  •" target="_blank">Lana Bradstream

    I would probably do nothing but drive around and show it off.

  •" target="_blank">freebies city

    I would pull my little dude out of school for a day trip down to savannah so we could hit the beach.Then we’d drive through the TN mountains and kentucky taking pictures!

  • I would take a road trip – a long road trip. It would be a luxurious ride all the way from Florida to California.

  • " target="_blank">joseph gersch jr

    I would raod trip it to philly

  • " target="_blank">Amanda Phillips

    If I won an Acura for a week, I would test out the MPHs! I’v been thinking about buying a hybrid but with so many different people giving diferent information about it, I haven’t made up my mind to take the plunge to buy one yet. This could really go far to convince me one way or the other. I’d do a lotof in town drivng and take a road trip o Dallas just to check out all of its features and comfortable-ness for longer trips since I already spend over an hour per day in my car.

  • " target="_blank">JMerced

    Thank you for sharing your blog. I love the car. I am tempted to run to an Acura Dealer and test it for myself.

  • " target="_blank">Susan Smith

    If I got an Acura ILX for a week I’d take a weekend trip to visit my family in Omaha. I have a 10 year old car and the ride is a bit rough so I know I would enjoy the comfortable ride of the Acura.

  • " target="_blank">Erica C.

    I’d take it for a long road trip to go hiking/camping.

  • " target="_blank">susan smoaks

    i would take the car on a road trip to atlanta for the week, it looks like such a fun ride, i would have to call in sick for the week and vacation with that car!

  • " target="_blank">Amy Lee

    I’d take it on a road trip! My car is too old to drive anywhere but to and from school.

  • " target="_blank">Trisha McKee

    What would I do if I had the Acura ILX for a week? I’d fall in love!

  • " target="_blank">Sand

    It would be great to go on a trip with it!

  • " target="_blank">Mindy McCrea

    I would go visit my parents, who live 6 hours away!

  •" target="_blank">Brittany @ The Domestic Geek

    I would probably take a few morning trips to a coffee shop and go on a shopping trip with my baby girl. She loves shopping at malls! It would be so nice since our 2nd vehicle is in pretty bad shape and I’m afraid to drive it anywhere especially with our daughter!

  • " target="_blank">Sarah M.

    If Acura gave me this car for a week…and I could pick any week to use it… my husband and I would drive it on our road trip from NH to Branson, MO in April 2013. We are going to the national chimney sweep convention, and it would be SO MUCH NICER to drive this car than our uncomfortable minivan!!
