2007 Acura TSX Sedan 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I decided on the TSX after looking at the BMW 3 series, the Lexus IS 250, and the Infiniti G35 Sedan. Compared to the other three models, the TSX offered all the creature comforts I wanted for 6K less than the G35 and Lexus and 10K less than the 328i. Really easy choice to make, even after driving the other three cars twice each. While the TSX doesn't have the speed and pick-up of the BMW or the Infinity, the engine is more than adequate for my style of driving (mostly city with some road trips now and then). My MPGs are around 20 for the city driving and 32 for highway.
Navigation, no doubt! I love the way it looks and the straight-forwardness of it.
Door locks don't open when you pull the handle (must unlock door before opening) and I prefer they be located near the handle so I can put my arm out the window without hitting them. No other complaints!
I bought this car about two months ago. I am in love with it. I had a TL before, but love this new car. The handling is peppy, yet not too much like other competitors such as a g35. The interior is easy on the eyes and all of the controls are extremely easy to use. The back seat is small, yet the seats fold down to make a more-than-large trunk for this car size. Handling is stiff, but not quite a BMW. The exterior is due for a redesign, but this car's current body style is what makes it so classy. (Not saying a few upgrades wouldn't help!)
Dash lights, XM radio, Bluetooth phone system, moonroof, fun to drive!
Better sound system, just a tad more torque to really take off, and fewer rattles!
Just got my 2007 Acura TSX w/out nav last weekend. What a great car. It rides similar to my wife's 2006 Honda Accord but holds tighter through the turns and is more fun to drive. There is a little less room in the back than the Accord, but the front and the trunk space seems very comparable. The design is becoming a little dated and the redesign should be coming out some time in late 2008. If you love Hondas but want a little more luxury, then Acura is the way to go. Plus you can get a steal of a deal on the TSX right now.
Bluetooth, great interior lighting - the blue is easy on the eyes, intuitive and easy to operate controls, comfortable seats, and turn signal mirrors.
The sun visors don't extend. Even the 2006 Accord has visors that extend. Other than that, it's a great car!
This is the 2nd new acura I've owned. I had my previous acura for 9 years. I've had this 06 TSX for 13 months and it is a disappointent compared with my first. Performance, looks, and features are good. The issues are with the multitude of rattles and squeaks that developed within 6 months in the interior and the ineffectual wiper system on the driver side which the dealer can't seem to address (fluid dribbles onto the windshield and wipers - new and old - only smudge and smear, they do not clear very well at all). These quality issues are surprising. The visual and auditory annoyances distract greatly from the driving experience.
Bluetooth; side mirror heater; wood trim; xm; HUD; 6-speed; when you're stopped at a light and the wipers are on intermittent, when you take your foot off the brake, you get a bonus wipe.
Less rattles and squeaks; better fuel economy; don't clump cd/aux/xm selector on SAME button; indicate on HUD if sidemirror or seat heaters on (not just on the buttons).
Outstanding overall value. You cannot beat what comes standard on the TSX for the price. Leather, bluetooth, 360 watt stereo (XM, 6 CD changer), heated seats with memory, sunroof. On top of all this, the TSX is extremely fun to drive and very agile. This car wants to be pushed to the limit and it eagerly responds. Note this is a sport sedan not a luxury car that floats on the road like grandpa's Lincoln. MPG is OK, average around 24 in mix driving and around 30 on the highway. I guess I was expecting a slightly better MPG given the TSX comes with a 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engine, however the TSX is engineered to maximize full use of this engine.
The following standard features: Xenon HID, fog lights, sunroof, heated leather seats with 2 position memory, stock radio with XM/6 CD changer, Michelin tires.
Include the side mirrors with the 2 position memory seat settings, LED tail lights.
