Review of the 2005 Acura TSX

  • Between its long list of high-end features, well-trimmed interior, agile handling and willing engine, the TSX is one of the best values on the market when it comes to affordable sport sedans.

    An engine that loves to rev and sounds good doing it, sharp handling, slick six-speed manual transmission, upscale interior look and feel, long list of standard equipment, top-of-the-line navigation system for those who want it.

    Forgettable styling, not much power until the engine gets revved up.

2005, but still very relevant!

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

Needed to upgrade my 1999 Accord EX-V6. Despite numerous issues with it, I still like Honda's reliability overall and have always liked Acuras. Got an incredible deal on a used TSX from an owner who babied it since he bought it in 2004; only 55k miles. It still looks and runs like it's brand new. Love how it handles, love the interior. Has some pep, but I find it relatively quiet. Very sleek and stylish I think looks better than a lot of cars that are new. As other reviewers have mentioned, I've had a lot of compliments. For a 10 year old car, it's pretty impressive. Downside is the premium gas. Thankfully, not filling up often so cost offsets. 24/32 MPG.




Bad milano red paint, acura

Vehicle: 2005 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

Car drives great but Acura does not want to stand behind its very poor quality paint. Whatever you do, DO NOT BUY A RED ONE!!! Unless of course you like pink cars. The assistance they offered for a repaint job only covered 1/4 of the cost. Don't forget that it take premium fuel too. Costs much more than a Honda to own.

Vehicle: 2005 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

Have over 170,000. A few problems, power locks, rear suspension (tow out), but for the miles and fuel mileage a fantastic auto. Navigation is outstanding, interior is of best quality. May buy anothr but only after 300,000 on this one.




Very good car

Good value

Vehicle: 2005 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

I bought this car with 68K miles on it for a very good price. I love it so far. I had a Jetta before and the TSX is much more powerful and rides very smooth. I have owned it for 6 months and the only issue so far is with the door locks failing to work with the remote. I see that has been a problem in other reviews as well. I hope it's not expensive to fix. I plan on keeping this car for another few years.




Quality, value, fun

Vehicle: 2005 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6M)

I have put 84,000 mi. on it and it is tight and rattle free. Still love the 6 spd manual. Everything functions as it should. I rent more expensive cars and miss the quality of the TSX. Premium gas is only real downside.
