2011 Acura TSX Wagon: Would You Look Here?
July 29, 2011
There are plenty of theories why Acura hid this power outlet behind a cover.
Did it not fit in with the design of the rest of the cargo area? Not likely. Are you supposed to keep a bottle of tire slime in that compartment and plug a compressor in there when you need a quick fill up? Doubt it.
My guess? The outlet fit there and when it was decided to add a cover over the space, the engineers figured there was no good reason to move it. Smart owners will read their manuals and find it right? Maybe (it's in there), or they'll never realize it's there and never be any worse because of it.
