I love this car even in spite of some quality control issues on the 1st year model. 4 clutch cylinders later and now almost no peddle popping. Other minor issues with door water leak, brake discs, door panel vibrations, and dash squeaks. The car strikes a wonderful balance of daily driver characteristics with solid handling and a near perfect 4 cyl engine. I drove plenty of cars before I bought the TSX and this is the best sedan I found. Not quite a BMW 3-series, but it is the closest you'll get for under $30K. Fuel economy is around 23-25 MPG mixed driving with synthetic fluids, Injen air intake, and 93 oct fuel.
The handling is great (above avg with OEM tires) due to suspension design (dbl wishbone) and body stiffness. The smooth K24 engine and the 6-speed make for entertaining driving.
Either give me a turbo or tune it to run on reg fuel. Expected better QC from Honda even though it is 1st production year.
