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


Review

I just bought my Acura, it was my fourth car in 3 years. I've had a 2000 Celica GT-S, 2003 Infiniti G35, a 2003 NIssan 350Z and then my Acura. All manual transmission. I must say that when it comes to performance, I have not been able to beat my 350Z. But isnt that what Nissan is about? BUT when it comes to comfort and reliablity my Acura tops my list! I love it. I feel safer and it uses a LOT less fuel then my last car. LOVE IT TO DEATH. More sensible for New York winters.


Favorite Features

Great gas mileage. Smooth drive. Great in bad weather.


Suggested Improvements

Needs more UMPH! Increase horsepower or turbo! Also, add a LSD transmission like the TL.

Review

I absolutely LOVE my car! I got it about 1 year & a half ago but I still feel like it's new. It looks great (mine is red!) & it drives wonderfully. I had a Toyota Solara before this (it was my first car- I'm only 21). It was good but this car is GREAT! Buy one!!!


Favorite Features

The look & design of the car. It is beautiful!


Suggested Improvements

I love mine with its tinted windows!!

Review

When it comes to cars, I must be spoiled, because my history of cars have all been great (1990 Honda Prelude, 1997 Accord sedan, and 2000 Accord coupe). But since I got my TSX in May of this year, I have been in love! This car is sporty, stylish, sleek, everything you could possibly want in a car, and with just enough a hint of luxury to make this mid-20s chick feel rich! I was in a collision in my TSX recently and felt absolutely safe in my Acura. It's five star collision rating proved to be true, and I am still in love with my TSX!


Favorite Features

Heated seats, sleek exterior design, clean interior design.


Suggested Improvements

Power door lock control on drivers side should be easier to locate and control, but you get used to it.

Review

The best drive I ever had in the TSX was the test drive. It makes a very good first impression. This quickly wears off though after you drive it for a month or two. It quickly develops rattles and squeaks and the precise handling quickly loses alignment. It's never starts without cranking too long. The fuel economy is much worse than advertised, even under optimal conditions. Seats are narrow and uncomfortable for an average-sized person. No side-body protective molding. Also, some of the fancy features are poorly implemented. It has power seats but no position memory which is worse (slower and less reliable) than plain old manual seats. There's no "mute" button for the stereo.


Favorite Features

6-speed manual transmission.


Suggested Improvements

Seat memory, stereo mute button, MP3 input, side-body molding. Trunk key access.
