2006 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Honda (and Acura) vehicles have always felt like 'home' to me. I had been away for awhile but when I decided to get a new car last summer, I chose the TSX. I don't think you can buy a better looking, driving, or better equipped car for the money. The car has nearly everything I could want in features, the handling is very nimble, it is supremely comfortable on long or short trips, I really like the interior and exterior styling. The torque off the line is a little low but when you get the engine in 'the zone' it pulls hard. The navi system is great, the best part is that it's a Honda at heart and should run forever. My car as 53K miles on it and it still looks, feels, and even smells new.


Best Features

nimble handling, navigation system, HID headlights, steering wheel controls, seats and seat heaters, exterior styling, comfort, bluetooth phone, reliability, solid build quality, low parts costs (for a luxury brand), gas mileage.


Worst Features

rain sensing wipers would be great. The interior noise seems a little high at times but that changes with road surface and tires also play into this as well. There's not a whole lot that I can think of.

2006 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I recently purchased a used 2006 TSX, trading in my 2005 Nissan Altima. My initial impressions are that the build quality is very good, I'm actually getting better gas mileage than the 4cyl Nissan engine, and the car is fun to drive. There are a few convenience features that the Altima had that the TSX strangely are lacking. Kinda weird you can't view total mileage and outside temp at the same time. Have to hit the unlock button to open drivers side door, and the sunroof controls are in a crazy place. I still find myself reaching up to open the sunroof only to realize the button is down on the bottom side of the dash. No auto headlights?


Best Features

Interior build quality, mp3 player aux jack, bluetooth handsfree compatibility.


Worst Features

Auto headlights, better tires, move sunroof controls. be able to open driver door without having to hit unlock button 1st.

2006 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

When looking for a practical yet sport sedan for under $30k there is simply nothing better. You can't beat Acura reliability not to mention this car is a lot of fun on the highway. Couple this with the almost 30mpg I am averaging and this makes for the best car for under $30k. Also, I currently have 70k miles on this car and haven't spent a penny on it, aside from routine maintenance (oil changes, etc)


Best Features

Reliability, handling, build quality, interior comfort, MPG.


Worst Features

Could use a little more pep off of the line, but that would come at the expense of a reduction in fuel efficiency - so I get it, you can't have it all. The new V6 TSX is looking pretty good...

Review

Looked at BMW and Lexus before realizing this was the best for far less. Car is amazing on gas and have achieved 35mpg highway going to Massachusetts. Everything works great and performs well. Put on snow tires for it and does very well in slippery conditions. Great car for a kid or commuter or simply around town. Would recommend to anyone. Son is buying mine and i will be getting another one.


Best Features

HID headlights, spoiler, nav, ipod connector, performance, handling reliability


Worst Features

brakes to last longer

2006 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This has to be the best 4 cylinder engine on the market, it is phenomenal. You can really motor in this car. I use mainly on the highways to go back and forth to work and its a great commuting car. Its a small car, but very comfortable on the inside even for someone 6 feet tall like me. The gas mileage is great, I average 30 miles on the highway. All the features on the car are standard, Navigation is the only option which makes life a lot easier. Best car for $30K on the market.


Best Features

The acceleration on the highway is fantastic, you can pass cars in the blink of an eye. The bluetooth is great, love the sound system/XM radio also.


Worst Features

Its not great in the snow, consider better tires and AWD instead of FWD.
