2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon: Dog Report
April 11, 2011
Drove up to San Francisco this weekend with my dog Mya in the long-term 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon. She looked like the above picture for 99% of the trip each way, a good thing. I laid down a blanket and her bed across the seat, buckled her in and stored her leash, treats and travel water bowl in the footwell. Some notes about how the TSX did as a conveyor of dog (note: I realize that not all these issues are exclusive to the Acura, this is just my experience with it though):
-- Love the vents in the center console so the dog could get some air without having to put the windows down, something I dislike when on the freeway.
-- The lower seat height, compared to her previous ride in the Raptor, definitely made it easier and quicker for her to get in and out of the car and provided me with easier access to her.
-- Wish the seatbelt fasteners for the side seats stuck out more from the bottom seat like the center seatbelt fastener. As it was I usually had to dig around from them to buckle her up -- a must, not only for safety sake, but because the TSX is kinda fun to drive.
All in all, I'd say she was pretty comfortable in the Acura.
