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


Review

Although I fell in love w/all the luxury that came standard in the car, I was not impressed with the body style. I added a spoiler and tint and was very impressed. The only problem is the handling. The steering is very hard to turn. I think it is very impressive for a 4-cyl lux car.


Best Features

the nav system is fabulous! I love the voice controls.


Worst Features

The steering

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


Review

I have a vast knowledge of cars and chose the TSX because it is BY FAR the best value on the market. The TSX comes loaded with everything you would expect in a car in this class for an exceptionally reasonable price. The handling is superb, gas mileage is very impressive, and the standard features are TOP NOTCH! Fit and finish, it is very difficult to find a better car for the money. Make sure to test drive this car because it will not disappoint. It is truly a superb vehicle.


Best Features

The 360 Acura Premium Sound System is very powerful for a stock sound system. Also, the standard Xenon headlights are fabulous. They illuminate the road beautifully. Lastly, the beautiful blue guages on the instrument cluster are envied by those who drive much more expensive cars. Very easy to read.


Worst Features

The Premium gas that it requires is sometimes expensive. Also, the paint quality is somewhat lackluster. A strong suggestion is the 3M Autobhand Clear Bra. It will protect the thin paint as it will chip if driven on poorly paved roads and highways.

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


Review

This car is seriously fun to drive! It's handling is excellent, and combined with a powerful inline 4 cylinder and interior creature comforts, makes this a great road trip car. If you're a racer, this car won't do it for you unless you start modding it. Fuel efficiency is good (I average around 25 mpg), but it still hurts that it costs about $40 to fill up nowadays because it needs premium gas. I've had to get the brakes and rotors replaced (under warranty) after 7,000 miles, but that says more about how hard I drive this car than the build quality. The most important thing about this car is that I feel very safe in it, I can't stress this part enough.


Best Features

When I say the handling is excellent, I mean it! This car could take curves on the highway in excess of 120 mph without moving an inch out of the lane! (NOTE: I do not endorse speeding or reckless driving) Other great stuff: navigation, voice recognition, comfort, HIDs, sport shift, and XM.


Worst Features

Back seats are not as comfortable as the front, needs more cushioning and a little more leg room. Auto-dimming side mirrors. This car has a big rear, optional backup sensors would be nice. A little thing, but why can you lower the windows remotely, BUT NOT RAISE THEM REMOTELY?

Review

I went from a 99 TL to an '05 TSX. it goes without saying that the TL is a faster car, but the TSX eventually gets there. It's a little sluggish in either manual or automatic mode, but once you build up some momentum, the speed is definitely there. Also, the TSX is a 5 speed automatic, and the 99 TL is a 4 speed, which makes for better downshifting in my opinion. Acura/Honda needs to seriously work on the voice-activated feature on the navi. For the money, there shouldn't be any flaws, but unfortunately, there are plenty. All in all, if you can afford it, I’d suggest it.


Best Features

You need not use the keyless remote or the side door button to open the trunk. If the car is unlocked, the trunk has it's own "handle." Side-mirror turn signals are nice too. The interior selections are awesome, I'd suggest parchment with wood... gorg!


Worst Features

As indicated above, the voice activated navigation system needs serious work. Even with all windows closed, stereo and heating unit off, the system still doesn't recognize simple requests.

Review

I have had this vehicle for a total of four months and all I can say it that this is the most amazing vehicle I have ever owned. The sound system is by far the best out of all the vehicles that I have test driven. The Honda Accord and Civic cannot even compare to this system. I am not sure of the wattage but it sounds incredible. Bose, Harman Kardon... none of them can compare to this system that is in the TSX.


Best Features

sound system, powerful engine, luxurious interior... everything about the car.


Worst Features

none... the car is perfect.
