2008 Acura TSX

- Good fuel economy, Great styling, interior, stereo, fit and finish.
- Premium gas, could have a bit more power.
This is my second Acura, the first being the old Integra, and I love this car even more than I did that one, and that's saying a lot. It's never given me as much as a hiccup in 3 years of ownership and it looks almost as good as it did the day I drove it off the lot. It's a great balance of luxury, sport and value. It doesn't charge as hard as a sports car, but if you get on it it has no problem flexing its muscles a bit. The ride is taut but pleasant and the creature comforts are all there in a nice package.
The necessity of premium fuel is a bother, but it delivers a good enough gas mileage to offset that a bit. It really is a nice car to take on longer road trips as I don't feel totally beat up when I get out of the driver's seat. The 6 speed gearbox is a dream and I still get a smile on my face when I approach it in a parking lot.
Overall, I'm very satisfied....read morehide

- very good performance and excellent looks inside and out
- dealer discount was moderate.
I love my TSX. Its a classy car and looks great inside and out. The leather interior is very nice and radio and cd player is beyond great. I recommend this car to anyone but you can get the maximum honda EX for a few thousand less. The car handles well and seems tight when cornering.

- Good fuel economy, handles well, very comfy, and sporty but practical.
- Nothing worth mentioning.
I did a lot of investigation before purchasing my car. What I found was that it was the best bang for the buck. Acuras hold their value the best while giving you the same options standard as competitors for a better value. I actually bought it in 2005 and love it as much today, 85000 miles later, as when I first bought it. There has been no deterioration of the vehicle performance or stability. Still feels like a brand new car. Highly recommend if you are looking for something fun/sporty but practical as well....read morehide

- Acceleration. Handling. Braking. Appearance. Friendly interface. Reliability. Features.
- Splashes mud on itself. Road noise. Thin coating and painting. Interior. Room. Turning radius,
Owned two separate vehicles in 2004-2006 and in 2007. No breakdowns, except multiple scratches on the outside from slightest touching other objects that would not have caused any trace on another car.
Your fingers know exactly every inch under the wheels. Nimble handling has its drawback: difficult to keep the car straight on a slightly sloped or compromised in any other way road profile. However, IMO it is better to have such information on your hands than to accelerate not feeling the problem.
Excessive work of the stabilization system consuming brakes.
Turning radius is something to remember on loow-speed manuevering such as parking; but steering the car into a fast turn is magnificent; surpassed only by the BMW 3-rd series.
The engine gives its best at 5000-7000 rpm with poor low end; but the feeling you get at putting the 2nd gear up to the redline is incredible.
Not fit for carrying bulky objects; not that much room for people either. Windows get dirty very quickly. The menu functions are easily accessible, with logical interface. Tremendous expenditure of the window-washign fluid. Never leave smooth road surface....read morehide
