    Does anyone know if the 2014 has the same clearance as the 2011-2013 ? I think they had like 5.3"... searching the web it says the 2014 has 5.1"?

    Not sure if my car is for some reason sitting low (I'm not an overly heavy dude), but my EX scrapes on every driveway I have to drive up, including mine. I thought my Acura CL was bad, but this is ridiculous. Luckily it's on the bottom of the bumpers and not noticeable. Not sure if anybody...

    I didnt realize how sporty my 2012 Ex is until I got it home. Old Geezer like me just liked the looks so much better than the Sonata I was considering. When I looked the car over I commented to the saleman that the front looked very close to the ground. He said it was normal height and that the...
