Great car for the times!
By mercruizer on
2012 Acura TSX Sport Wagon 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Had a 2005 Mazda6 wagon before. Wanted either a wagon or crossover with good handling and mileage. Drove the Tiguan, Jetta, CRV, and 3-series. Most of the crossovers drive "okay", car-like but detached handling and so-so mileage. BMW had lousy standard equipment, and the Jetta was nice but a little narrow (coming from a midsize Mazda). The TSX was perfect sized and I am getting 31-34 MPG on trips! Passed on the TECH package (have my own Nav)to keep the price reasonable. Standard stereo is very good( I sell Home Electronics). The standard equipment on the TSX is amazing and is great value compared to other midsize offerings. The 4 cylinder is efficient and powerful.
Basic car is loaded with the most important features. Great stereo, Leather, Bluetooth, power front seats. Acura doesn't nickel and dime you with options. A midsize wagon with compact car gas mileage. Good power from a 4-cylinder. Priced with a FWD Honda Crosstour, but better finished and better looking.
Silver is the most popular car color, but, the wagon can't be had in silver. Very limited colors available.
