I needed a serious driving machine that could also take the wife and kids everywhere. The engine sounds exotic at WOT. The six-speed manual is the only way to "talk" to this car. What really endears me to the TSX is that it can be so much fun when I'm driving solo, but can also be the trusty and protective car when hauling the family. It's good on gas, mechanically dependable, exhilirating to drive, fun to drive slow, has all the safety stuff, and big enough for a family of four. The TSX made ownership fun again after a disastrous and trouble-plagued 2 years with a 2002 Audi A4... blap!
6 spd manual; Xenon lights; curtain airbags; vehicle skid control; dual climate control; heated seats; engine music between 4000-7100 rpm.
Sunroof controls should be a rotary knob by the maplights. Relocate the front door-lock pull-knobs.
