2004 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6M)
Have put on about 26k miles on it over 3 years. It has handled long trips, couple weekend sessions at the local road track, and commuter traffic. For a FWD car it has been quite entertaining to drive and an excellent winter/bad weather (the other car is a rwd Porsche). I still can't believe 3 years later how much I enjoy driving it (I'm usually quite bored by then and get the "new car" bug). I found several things I could do to make it more fun. I put on an intake, some more aggressive tires, some better brake pads with a little more bite and less fade, and had the car lowered slightly. It just makes a great handling car much more spirited.
The 6 speed manual is better than my 911! Torque - for a 2.4 liter this car has the grunt of most competitors v6s or turbocharged 4 cylinders. Handling - probably the best handling fwd sedan on the market. Value - at this pricepoint, it's very hard to beat the package
Less intrusive stability control (VSM) AWD maybe with the 2.3 Turbo from the new RDX, add a wagon version! (not all of us love SUVs)
