2004 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I was considering the Audi A4 1.8T 5M, the Lexus IS 300 5M and the Infiniti G35 6M. Why did I go for the TSX? For me, it has the perfect balance of performance, handling, comfort, style, reliability, practicality, fuel economy and resale value. Yes there are faster cars, but none of the aforementioned cars had the TSX's balance and refinement. At 200 miles, I'm still doing break-in runs with the car. I haven't revved it to 7000k yet, but it feels very smooth and strong at 5000k and below. A case for delayed gratification - I'm so happy I waited for this car to come out before purchasing!


Favorite Features

Smooooth drivetrain and ride, HANDLING, seats, Xenon headlights, stereo, refinement.


Suggested Improvements

Auto-on headlights, foglamps standard.

2004 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (2.4L 4cyl 6M)


Review

My experiences with the car have been nothing but positive. Concerns that people may have that I would address: -Power: Plenty of power at all speeds if the engine is at the ~3K rpm mark. The shifting on the 6MT has surgical precision and makes it easy to keep the engine in the optimal powerband. Is it the fastest car in the world? No - but it is totally satisfying for fun, everyday driving. -Luxury: Finish/design is impeccable. The vast majority of the features most people would want. -Nav system: Love it so far. Easy to use. No bugs yet. Voice recognition works just fine - once you learn the right commands!


Favorite Features

-Fun to drive!!!!! -Incredible handling -Nav system -Gauges/dashboard layout and design -Great balanced package of sport and luxury


Suggested Improvements

-Decrease nav system startup time -Memory seats -Let CD changer randomly play tracks from any loaded CD rather than only one at a time.

2004 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I love this car! From the styling in and out to the performance of the car, everything has lived up to my expectations. The only negative I could think of after 3 weeks of driving this car is that the engine could use a bit more torque, but the flat torque curve and the 7100 RPM with 200HP make it whole lot of fun to drive regardless! My overall impression of the car so far is a 10 and the positives outweigh the fact that it could use more torque.


Favorite Features

Handling/Suspension, Navigation, Interior, standard safety features, and pretty much everything else about the car.


Suggested Improvements

Height adjustment on the center console armrest. That's all for now.

2004 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (2.4L 4cyl 6M)


Review

While lacking two cylinders, the performance trade-off is small, especially when considering handling. Also, no other car comes close as far as feature content per dollar. To acquire a similarly equipped BMW or Audi would cost nearly 5000-6000 dollars more, at least.


Favorite Features

HID headlights, 6-speed, ease of use of navi system


Suggested Improvements

Fog lights standard, different style wheels

This car handles really well. It's a spunky small car with a lot of power and style both interior and exterior.


Favorite Features

Interior is excellent and the sound system is great. The dashboard looks awesome.

2004 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I love this car! Just purchased a meteor silver TSX 2 weeks ago. Awesome color! I get ton of stares and compliments. The TSX easily outshines its competition. Except for the BMW, they all look like the entry level sedans that they represent in their respective makes. In other words, cheap. The engine will surprise you. There's not too many luxury sedans that will do 0-60 in the 6 sec range and get 30 mpg on the hwy. The sport shift allows you to shift manually so you get the best of both worlds. This car is definitely fast enough to get you plenty of speeding tickets if you don't watch the speedometer closely.


Favorite Features

Exterior and interior design.Xenon headlights. The 360 watt sound system with in-dash 6 cd player will literally blow you away. 5 speed automatic sport shift. 17 inch wheels and sport style chrome dual exhaust.


Suggested Improvements

The tail lights need to be more rounded and they resemble the RSX's way too much. Memory seats & mirrors. Backlit steering wheel controls. Power passenger seat. On-board trip computer. Auto door locks. Standard factory fog lights. Aftermarket ones look cheap.

Review

I recently purchased the TSX and I have to say the car drives like a luxury car but feels like a sports car. I would say this car is one of the best in it's class. I test drove the Mazada 6 and the LEXUS IS 300.The Acura was the best all around.


Favorite Features

Dual climate control Stock 17 inch wheels Leather seats that hug you tight Very spacious High intensity headlights


Suggested Improvements

Add more torque Make standard with fog lamps

Review

The TSX is a great mix of luxury and sporty qualities, with a real German feel. It provides all the luxury of the German sports sedans for less money. Loads of fun to drive on twisty roads. I am very pleased with the ride quality and feel. After owning Honda's for many years and having been disappointed with the style of the new Accords (both sedan and coupe), I was pleased when I seen the photos of the TSX and its clean, crisp styling. Thanks Honda (Acura) for designing a car that looks great and is fun to drive!


Favorite Features

6spd shifter, 6 disk in dash CD, dual climate control,dash lighting, large trunk, interior fit/finish,leather, heated seats


Suggested Improvements

power passenger seat, body side molding, body colored grille, illuminated steering wheel controls, automatic door locking after car is in motion. Choice of ebony interior all exterior colors
