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


Review

It is a fabulous car to drive. The handling is tight and precise and its biggest quality is the quality of interior materials used and the overall assembly of the car. I have had it for 2.5 years without putting a dime into the car. Only negative is the turning radius. A bus is easier to park.


Best Features

Powerful 4 cylinder engine that is very fuel efficient.


Worst Features

Shorten turning radius.

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


Review

If you're looking for the fastest or most-likely-to-be-envied-by-your- buddies, keep looking. The TSX is all about balance between engine, transmission, handling, brakes, economy, and luxury. Having driven all of its competitors, none do those things as well as this superb Acura. No wonder Car & Driver keeps voting it a 10-Best winner. I've had my '04 for two years, and I look forward to my commute every day. How many cars do that for you?


Best Features

Sweet engine and tranny, balanced handling, high feature content, luxury interior and build quality.


Worst Features

Can't think of any that Acura didn't add in '05 or '06.

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


Review

When I bought this car i was going back and forth between the Acura and the G35 from Infiniti. The main 2 reasons I choose the Acura was the MPG difference and the cheaper insurance. I recently sold the car with a lot of regret, but I needed an SUV. This car was amazing. It had everything. Nav, heated seats, dual climate control, stability, leather etc... The power from the 2.4L was good for the car. Not the power of the TL, but much better MPG and not the torque steer.


Best Features

The Nav system is the best I have ever used. There was nothing this system wouldn't do. Voice activated and touch screen. This is what Acura does.


Worst Features

Memory seats.

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


Review

At 30,000 miles, perfect reliability (not one issue - even minor). It's the best FWD car platform ever in my opinion. Great blend of luxury and sport. Worst part of new TSX are the Michelin Pilots. A switch to Falken 512s tires made a great car greater. Right on the EPA mileage ratings. Can't be beat for the price and the ability to hold a high resale value borders on ridiculous.


Best Features

Great 2.4L VTEC engine "clean" interior design, perfect blend of handling & ride, just right exterior dimensions


Worst Features

Most were covered in the 2005 and 2006 models (2 setting memory seats, power passenger seat, Bluetooth, etc)

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


Review

I've had my TSX for over three years now and am really impressed. Build quality is exceptional - I've had one minor issue w/ my air conditioner in 3 years, but other than that, have just had to change the oil and rotate the tires. Lots of fun to drive. The navigation system is extremely easy to use and intuitive. Took me all of 5 mins. to learn it. I always get comments on the interior lighting at night - very cool looking. Controls and gauges laid out very well. And the stability control program pretty much saved my life one day on I-459 in Birmingham, Alabama.


Best Features

Looks, build quality, comfort and gas mileage. I can set the cruise a notch below 90 on the interstate and average just over 30 mpg. The trunk is surpisingly big for a car this size. Navigation system very easy to use and intuitive.


Worst Features

Being nitpicky, the ride is "sporty" - the tradeoff of great handling is a ride that can be pretty firm at times, esp. on rough roads. But that's a minor gripe. Also, back seat legroom is a little tight - best for 2 adults on relatively short trips.
