Purchased As New
Bought car new in August 2009. Now have 29,000 on it. Looked at VW GTI and Mini Cooper S also. Mini was too small, and GTI has questionable reliability per user reviews. Previous car was a 2005 Acura RSX Type S. TSX is not as quick as the RSX, but is quick enough. Handles good, though the electric steering lacks feel. Is quiet and rides well. I drive about 80% highway miles, and average 32 mpg on premium (required) fuel. This car has an honest 575 mile range on one tank.
My only regret is not getting the six speed manual. The automatic is geared for mileage and spends as much time as possible in 5th gear unless you use the paddles. Even with the paddles, it is geared too high and the gear spacing is too great. Do not think this tranmission is matched well to this engine; the 6 speed is geared lower and with its six close-ratio gears would be much better. Other than this, I like the car. I have had no problems with it yet at all, so reliability has been excellent.
If you are a luxury car buyer, the automatic is probably ok. If you're buying it as a sport sedan, get the 6 speed.
