2008 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
After a 92 and 98 Accord, I decided to upgrade to the Acura TSX. So far after almost 6 months I am not disappointed. This car is fun to drive and sporty, yet still gets awesome mileage (I have gotten mid 30s on pure highway). Commuting mileage is OK and can get mid 20s. For the price you get so many features found in many higher level models. Audio is OK, but not the car's high point. However almost all the features can be found on the new 8th gen Accord (minus HID headlights and bluetooth phone), in a much bigger but more powerful car. Above all, this car is a Honda. Dependable, great resale value, laundry list of standard features.
Bluetooth hands free phone, navigation system easy to use, heated/memory seats, great mileage, MID/speedo cluster is intuitive and looks sharp. Controls are easy to use. Great value at this price point.
The biggest gripe is that it uses premium gas to achieve its great mileage. Other minor gripes, the seats are just OK, the sound system is sorely outdated and more suitable for a civic not an entry-level luxury car. Honda paint is very cheap and chips very easily. Not much torque in the midrange
