well i finally got to take my new 06 lx a little off roading nothing special just some beach stuff handdled everything no problem even some really soft stuf which i was a bit scared off because i did not want ot air down because i did not have any way of outting air back in. handdled everything great. The only strange thing is that it is getting cold up here and in the morning upon first start up the engine is really loud i mean really loud until i warms up a bit. i guess from the new belts?? also the vvti is really strange i had my 99lx for close to 5 years and the throttle response was very linear with the new 06 it jumps a lot the only thing i can compare it to is a turbo? i think it may just be me getting used to the new thing.
