2005 Acura TSX Sedan 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (2.4L 4cyl 6M)
Initially, I was looking to stay under $25k with my new vehicle purchase. I commute 95 miles roundtrip daily and wanted something reliable and fun to drive. One look at the TSX and my price concerns suddenly didn't matter. Then, I got behind the wheel. The moment I sat in the TSX, I was sold. It just fit! The seats are well bolstered and very comfortable, the instrument panel is laid out well, and the six speed is just sweet! After a test drive, I knew that I wanted one. After some research, I decided to go ahead. I love this car! I'm at 5,500 miles and love it more than the day I brought it home!
The navigation system is truly a convenience that I'm not sure how I ever lived without. The six speed is the smoothest shifting manual that I've ever driven. The HID headlights took a little getting used to but now that I have, I love the amount of light they provide!
The stereo is probably the weakest link in the car. I've heard the sound described as "muddy" and I agree. I've heard that aftermarket speakers help immensly. Automatic headlights would be nice, as would a memory seat.
I was talked into buying this car by my brother - he wanted me to have something "reliable". I have no real complaints about it other than the headlights - they have to be turned on and off and the halogen headlights have other drivers constantly flashing their lights at me - thinking I have my brights on when I don't. Also, you can't open the windows when it's raining because the water comes in. It's quick for a four cylinder but too slow for my taste (I drove Pontiac Bonnevilles for years and am now wishing I had purchased another one.) I'll be trading it in after two years for a faster car. I got better gas mileage on the highway with my Bonnevilles than I do with this vehicle.

I just bought this car in may and I look forward to driving it all the time. It handles great and you comfortable while doing it. The navi is awesome and never has any problems. It is not a very common car I see on the road and thats why I got it unlike the audi a4 and the bmw 3 series which is every other car I see. I suggest this car to anyone who is interested.
Fun to drive and plenty of second looks when you're out for a spin. Excellent fuel mileage and gets every bit of the mileage on the sticker. 200 horsepower in a four, wow does it ever handle like a very good sports car. Worth every bit of the sticker price. WHAT A CAR!
Interior is laid out perfectly.
Auto door locks and softer seats for the long ride, also put electric jack in rear seat area for dvd players
