TSX = Honda Accord on crystal meth
By Jimmy Kimmy on

Vehicle

2008 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6M)

Review

In Japan and Europe, TSX is called Honda Accord. And this Accord is not the same as the one my dad used to drive. Acceleration is good and feels fantastic when you down shift and mash the gas pedal. Just keep the rpm above 5K and it will keep you smiling. If you want to pass someone in a hurry doing 70 in 6th gear, forget about down shifting to 5th or 4th. Just go straight to 3rd gear open it up and feel the rush as the bigger cam kicks in at close to 6000 rpm all the way to the redline. It doesn't sound/feel harsh at high rpm. Handling is best part of TSX. Being 4 cyclinder makes TSX handle better than cars with bigger engines, and I'll take better handling over extra torque anyday.

Favorite Features

Very comfortable firm leather seats and thoughtful interior layout. Great handling without harsh ride. Over 30 mph for freeway cruising doing 70 to 90 mph. Heavenly engine/exhaust sound at high RPM. Best manual transmission (precise) and buttery clutch (effortless) I ever experienced.

Suggested Improvements

Turbo as an option. Little firmer suspension with stickier summer tires. Sound of horn is so wimpy. And finally different alloy rim design please. Current one is kinda boring.
