Very good car with an impressive 6
speed transmission. Great road
handling but Michelin tires does'nt
offer a sufficient road grip for that
car. Breaking sould be improuved
because the nose of the car is too
much crushing. The torque is missing
at low revolution level and the
pleasure just appears over 4500 RPM
but easily reachable.
The six speed transmission is a
pleasure to work with and cliks with a
pleasant noise. The handling is one f
the better in it's class
I am driving my TSX since 7 months now
and was driving a Jetta 1.8 T before
and the any rev torque still missing
to me.I thing the maximum torque
should be at lower revolution so the
power will be available any time from
stop to highest speed and on every
Bought in May, have had the car in to
dealer recently to repair rattles from
the seat belt assembly on the b-pillar
and from the air bag assembly inside
the steering wheel. Dealer informed me
they could not fix seat belt rattle-
that's just the way it is. Also have
noticed hesitation in acceleration in
certain instances, not sure if drive by
wire is the culprit or if "that's just
the way it is". This car is an
excellent value for the money but hard
to overlook build quality problems I
Perfectly laid out interior
most car for the money under $30k
if I wanted rattles in my car I would
have saved $10k and bought a Chevy
Malibu. I never thought I would say
this about honda/acura but build
quality needs to be addressed.
Conservative styling?? My red car
looks incredible, great stance. Saved
$500 haggling b/w two dealers.
Ergonomically perfect, other
manufacturers should just copy Honda.
Great grip, could use more torque,
always use more. Sound system
impressive, can't wait for summer
drives with windows down and sunroof
open. Go buy one, just don't get my
Ergonomics, best in the industry!
Great power delivery, Honda invented
VTEC, new i-VTEC is mush more
Wife likes all the amenities, heated
seats and wheel mounted controls.
Yes Honda is conservative, but this
TSX looks great in person, pictures
don't do it justice.
Sequential shift is pointless, please
adopt a true SMG like the big boys.
I know manual is better, but wife
can't drive stick.
Offer black leahter with red ext.
For those who test drove and
eventually, own it, the TSX
is one of the best value buy in the
entry-level luxury sports sedan today.
Handling is excellent and the
suspension is nicely tuned to absorb
the bumps and with little body roll.
The standard amenities list is
extensive, and comparably equipped cars
in this segment will cost thousands
more. Acura's track record on quality
and reliability is also another reason
why the TSX is the best value buy in
the entry-level luxury sports sedan
