The 2007 Acura TSX is one of the best values on the market when it comes to entry-level luxury sport sedans. While other import brands may carry more cachet, it's hard to beat the TSX's attractive interior, high-end features and enjoyable driving dynamics.

Just rolled 100k in my '07 Tsx and I couldn't be happier! I picked the car up 3 years ago with 30k on it! I drive ALOT! And have put over 20k a year on the car including 2500mi round trips from Orlando to Toronto! Car has NEVER skipped a beat on me! Regular maintenance performed only! In the past 3 years I have spent around $500 in maintenance? Oil changes only and a brake job performed by Sears. The car is bone simple to work on! ( Honda core ) Don't even bother taking it to the dealer! Sears, Jiffy Lube, Mobile, Just about anyone can work on this car. The way it drives you wouldn't know it had 100k on the odometer . She's itching for another 100k problem free!

Bought this car used two years ago for my daughter to drive and it's going very well.
Very solid build quality.
Believe Acura missed on it's replacement in comparison.
Acura also did a realy nice job by including everything one could want as standard equipment.
The Germans fail miserably at this.
We also looked into the Audi a4 fwd and the BMW 3 series and it was hard to find similarly equipped cars anywhere close to the TSX.
In testing them, neither blew away the TSX, in fact, in daily driving, the TSX was more than a worthy competitor.
It handled better than the a4 and ride/steering is better than the 3.
FWD did not seem to me to hurt it and I like FWD for poor weather.

4 yrs almost up for our Artic Blue TSX. Its been a fun car to drive. gives decent mileage. All the tech goodies are still up to date in 2011. We had to replace brake pads recently due to mild brake shudder but otherwise its been reliable. This car is definitely a keeper.

Very good car with decent performance and great visibility. The fuel economy is excellent, especially for a car of its size. The styling is also a plus. Only complaint is the brakes. This is the second Honda/Acura we've owned with premature brake wear. Parents are having a similar issue with a 2006 Accord.

I got my first TSX in Feb of 2007 as a 3 year lease. 6-speed manual, carbon gray. Absolutely loved the car. fun, sexy and reliable. I reluctantly gave it back in Feb of 2010. I bought a BMW X5, but after a few months I missed my TSX so much that I bought another one, another '07 - white, automatic. Can't say enough about this car. My only advice is GET ONE!! personally I think it's better than the TL!! especially if you live in the city because it's a little smaller. PS-Also one of the safest cars on the road.
Nearly at the end of its life cycle, the Acura TSX adds a tire-pressure monitoring system to its already long list of standard safety equipment.
The 2007 Acura TSX is the brand's entry-level sedan. As such, it's aimed at buyers who grew up with the boom of the sport compact scene and were raised on Japanese cars but now need a more functional and roomier vehicle to match their changing lives.
Based on the European market Honda Accord, the TSX went through a slight refreshing last year, with a small bump in horsepower from 200 to 205, minor exterior revisions, a hands-free cell phone wireless interface and an auxiliary media jack. Some potential buyers might be surprised to learn that the 2007 Acura TSX still comes with a four-cylinder engine only. This is a luxury-branded car, and even the Accord can be had with a V6, right? But from Acura's standpoint, the four-cylinder has advantages in weight reduction and price while still making competitive amounts of power.
The TSX mainly competes with lower-end versions of the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series, as well as the Lexus IS 250 and Volvo S40. Frankly, we think this car is just a blast to drive, even with its minor shortcomings in engine power. Overall, it's worth strong consideration.
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
The 2007 Acura TSX entry-level sports sedan seats five and comes in only one trim level. Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, xenon HID headlights, leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a moonroof, power accessories, a power driver seat and a premium sound system. The only factory option is a navigation system, which is simple to use, intuitive and recognized as one of the best in the industry.
Powertrains and Performance
The entry-level luxury sedan comes with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 205 hp and 164 pound-feet of torque. Transmission choices include a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic with Sequential Sportshift. Fuel economy is impressive: TSX rates 22 city/30 highway with the manual, and 22 city/31 highway with the automatic.
The 2007 Acura TSX boasts a long list of standard safety equipment including four-wheel antilock brakes with brake assist, traction control, side airbags for front passengers, front and rear side-curtain airbags and a tire-pressure monitoring system. In frontal-offset crash testing conducted by the IIHS, the TSX received a "Good" rating, the highest possible, and an "Acceptable" rating in side-impact testing. In NHTSA testing, the TSX earned a perfect five-star rating on all counts except for rear side impacts, where it received four stars.
Interior Design and Special Features
Inside, the 2007 Acura TSX offers an attractive, upscale interior that is very contemporary. The gauges are brightly lit and easy to read, the leather seats are comfy and supportive and rear legroom is surprisingly spacious. Although TSX claims to seat five, read between the lines and know that a fifth passenger will suffer in the center seat.
The TSX is sophisticated and super fun, like a sports coupe in a tuxedo. While the four-cylinder engine is a tad underpowered and seriously lacking torque, once you get it revved up, it really delivers. We love the six-speed manual transmission as it makes you feel like a pro driver with its short, precise shifts. Amazingly, we can't complain much about the automatic either. Handling is sharp, the steering is quick, the sports-tuned suspension reduces body roll and the car feels solid and safe. During less spirited driving, the TSX makes good on its promise as a luxury brand and provides a solid, compliant ride that always feels just right.
