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


Review

I have had this car for almost a year now (silver w/6spd). Pros: many standard features, superior quality build, perfect control layout, low maint. requirements, fun to drive. Cons: average stereo, weak engine below 3k RPMs, occasional dash rattle, and seemingly weak paint. The paint seems thin as even the slightest rock chips/scratches the paint. I have had cars with more durable finishes. Overall: You will not find a car in this class that beats the TSX when it comes to value. I looked at the Audi, for example, and when you look at cost vs. features, build quality, reliability, etc., nothing can complete with the TSX's value.


Best Features

The 6-speed transmission makes all the difference in the world. I drove an automatic and it was like a completely different car. The four-banger really works well with the 6-speed.


Worst Features

1) For the price, it should have a better sounding stereo. 2) Acura needs to make its paint more durable.

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


Review

My TSX is 6 months old and the Mike has quit working. Part has been out of stock for 3 weeks. Other than that I love my car. Great acceleration, smooth transmission. I also like the firm steering. I took a friend for a ride and she said it feels like the seats "hug" you. The Navigation is awesome! If you have ever been to a City or State and you don't know where to eat or need a gas station, no problem.


Best Features

I like the way you can lower all of you windows with the remote. The navi and the way you can adjust the steering wheel closer or farther from you.


Worst Features

Factory installed fog lights.

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


Review

The TSX offers everything one needs, expects, and would want in a car. The interior is tastefully designed, yet ergonomic and logical. The exterior is sharp and sporty, without being trendy. The car is fun to drive and exceptionally smooth, yet economical. The value of the car is second to none. If you compare the competitors cars with the TSX, you will pay significantly more for the same features. Nevertheless, as much as they may try, the feature the competitors can not offer is that of Honda's legendary reliabilty and leading-edge technology.


Best Features

The close-ratio six speed is second to none, fluid and dynamic. 360 Watt stereo has excellent acoustics.


Worst Features

I can think of no improvements that could be done to the car itself. In regard to available accessories it would be great if the CD player could play MP3s, rather than having to buy an additional MP3 player.

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


Review

I am tired of reading all these reviews about how the tsx should have more horsepower and more features. Everyone always wants more. For the price, you can't find a better car in its class with as much standard features. If you want more horsepower, buy a TL. Stop complaining and enjoy your new tsx. This car is very lavish, and fun to drive. It gets pretty good gas mileage, and the standard sound system and XM are great. Overall very satisfied with the tsx. Would buy another one.


Best Features

XM, sound system, gas mileage, great looks and comfortable. Xenon headlights


Worst Features

Auto headlights would be nice to have. But other than that theres nothing to improve.
