My mom has been an avid Acura lover for as long as I can remember. The first Acura she bought was a Legend back in the early 2000s...that car is still running great to this day. Since then, we have owned a TL, CL, and a TSX. I bought my own 2007 TSX a few months ago. I LOVE THAT CAR!!!! No issues, she runs like a dream. Great acceleration and braking, very sporty and so much fun to drive!!! I bought mine with 217 k. My sister has over 300 k on her '05 TSX. Just a great car! I'm so happy with my purchase and I find Acura and Honda vehicles to be very reliable vehicles. If you are looking for a good car, the TSXs are amazing!!!!
I bought 2007 tsx last year with 81k miles. Pros: very good gas mileage, luxurious interior with all options, quite comfortable, enough power for daily use. Cons: drove it for two months. the starter went out on me. I have owned tl and accord before. Never had this problem. Car has engine vibration issues when in gear. Very common for this model. Overall, i'm very happy with this car!
gas mileage, options, comfortable, roomy.
engine vibration issue when in gear. Starter problem.
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.
Very few if any better interiors on today's cars, even on the higher end.
Certainly nicer than the newer TSX.
Trunk space is a good surprise as well as are the fold down seats in the rear.
Great balance between ride, handling, steering and braking.
Sound system and phone interface -- excellent.
Commmunications and info center in a car this old and in this price range is very cool.
Safety standards are high.
Expected costs projected to be far less than German rivals; easily go to 150K miles if care is taken.
Am running Yoko all season performance tires and they seem to be a good match.
If you are looking for a nice used car and can find one that has been treated well, go for it.
The 5 speed auto has a perfect top end ratio.
Had Acura added anothe gear between 1 and 5 it would have improved performance by taking advantage of this excellent engine.
Wind noise is a bit higher than it should be and seems to worsen with age.
New seals may be added later though.
Nothing else to add, Acura gets high marks for the '07 TSX.
