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


Review

I just bought my Acura TSX and I love it! It is the most attractive sports sedan on the road in my opinion and people actually turn to look at it.


Best Features

The cool interior and the navigation system.


Worst Features

More power (although I know I could have gotten a bigger engine in another car, I wanted this car . . . I would have paid for a bigger engine) and a better arm rest!

2005 Acura TSX Sedan 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (2.4L 4cyl 6M)


Review

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!


Best Features

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!


Worst Features

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.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Cruise and radio controls on the steering wheel.


Worst Features

Better stereo. Offer cloth seats. Change headlights.

Review

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.


Best Features

Navigation.


Worst Features

Have an upgraded engine option.

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


Review

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!


Best Features

Interior is laid out perfectly.


Worst Features

Auto door locks and softer seats for the long ride, also put electric jack in rear seat area for dvd players
