Used '07 TSX was a good move

Vehicle2007 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
ReviewBought 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.
Best FeaturesVery 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.
Worst FeaturesThe 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.
