I love this car. I am very impressed with the TSX, it is an all around excellent car. It is near the bottom in price for the segment and all the optional equipment is already on the car.
Driving the car is a blast. It has a great shifter and plenty of get up and go. The handling is superb. The ride quality is great - even over bumps.
I know this car will last, and I will probably keep it for a long time....read morehide

- Loved My Car!
- Someone stole it with only 500 kilometres on it!!
So much for vehicle immobilizers! They stole it without a key and managed to get it out of the parking spot without a tow truck!

- comfortable, easy to handle, powerful -yet quiet
A great entry into a luxury sports sedan. Love the ride, the comfort and music system is great. Good to know it's such a reliable car as well.

- Range of power seats, opening with split rear seats
I have had my TSX for 4 months now and have been very impressed. My previous car was a 1989 Toyota Supra turbo and I do not feel much if any dropoff in power with the TSX so long as you keep the RPM's above 3000. The clutch is like a dream, light and quick making it sporty and easy to drive in traffic. The Navigation has gotten me out of a few directional jams already. Perforated leather is comfortable without being sticky in summertime. There is ample trunk space, however there are structural piece obscuring a full pass through the fold down rear seats. Gas milage is better than rated so far for me ~ 24 mpg city and ~31 mpg highway and i don't like to baby the throttle (this car begs to be driven at high speed and high rev). Moonroof is something I will not be able to live without however the position of the control for it is in an undesireable location.
Overall I could not have asked for more out of a new car. Not only am I extremely pleased but My mother is now close to buying one for herself. In my opinion (Mech Engineer, Worked in autoparts business, Race car engineer) this car is the best bang for your buck out there. Everything is standard aside from external features which leaves you with little choice. If you price out the options on other cars you will be shocked with the price and in my opinion will not get the same performance or reliability....read morehide

- Good gas mileages, comfortable ride
- many small problems
Winthin first 6months, I went back to dealer twice to adjust the dashboard that continue to make noise rubbing against the windshield.
Also continue to have noise on the side front doors. Dealer had to replace the radio (entire radio/cd system). After 24K miles, transmission ready to stall on me seeral times....read morehide

- Options (leather, sunroof, sound system) standard, fuel economy, safety features
- No compass! Air conditioner doesn't get very cold.
I test-drove one other car ('04 Nissan Maxima, 3.5SE, 6-spd) before the TSX. While the Maxima is a great car, I was completely sold as soon as I got in the TSX!
I love the interior - very comfortable for a woman my size (5'5, 120lbs - the Maxima felt too big.) I love the 6-speed transmission - gives the car a sporty feel. I only drive manual transmission cars. I was looking to upgrade into a 4-door sedan (from an Eclipse) and didn't want to lose the "sports car image". I was so happy to find a slick sedan with all the sports car-like features. I plan to keep this car until it dies. I am only 26 and one day far from now plan to have children. The TSX has six airbags, a 5-star crash rating; these features were very important to me when making my purchase. Being environmentally friendly was also a factor. It is a Low Emissions vehicle with great gas mileage for the engine/power.
Acura created the ultimate balance of safety, efficiency, luxury, and edge. I am an Acura owner for life. I had test-driven a Lexus IS300; Not worth the $$. I considered a BMW; didn't want to deal with expensive upkeep. Out of all the cars out there, Acura completes the buyers' need with all-inclusive standard features, fuel economy, and safety in a luxury car. The TSX is one of the slickest cars on the road today. I highly recommend test-driving/owning this truly ultimate driving machine....read morehide

- Great on fuel, everything comes standard, great handling on turns, lots of spunk
Highly recommended for younger drivers looking for a not too pricy but luxurious yet sporty vehicle.

- Everything you could want comes standard. Not a many on the road
- If you place anything in the trunk you will hear it rattle everytime you start/stop/turn. Wide turn
I bought my TSX about a month and a half ago. I love it! Paid $26310 with no bargaining (not good at it). The TSX is a great car and looks wonderful. I compared several cars including the Maxima, Passat, Volvo, and Pontiac G6. This car was by far the best value when considering all of the standard options. Is also nice to not have to pick and choose between which options you want and which options you can afford.
I have read about some of the bugs this car can have (rattle in the door, whistle in the windshield, rattle in the trunk) and thus far have not noticed any of them. However, I feel it is good to be aware of them so I can be on the look out. One thing I have noticed is the TSX has a wide turn. No more u-turns for me. Also, the car does not come with anything to hold items in the trunk. I hear everything move around in my trunk everytime I start/stop/ or make a wide turn.
Finally, I did not go with the navigation system because I bought one that I can move from car to car. Works perfectly and was no where near the $2000 price tag for the one installed....read morehide
