2009 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I came to this car from an 03 Maxima wanting something a little more luxurious and better on gas. Mission accomplished. This car has been wonderful. The standard options on this car make it a great value. I have friends with Mercedes C300 and BMW 3 series. I have driven/ridden in all these cars many times and I am glad I saved all that money. There is really nothing comparable in this price range.


Best Features

Laundry list of standard options even with the non-tech package car. Great gas mileage and superior reliability.


Worst Features

Rear seat leg room is lacking. Ride is a little too stiff for my taste.

2009 Acura TSX Technology Package 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Traded in an excellent 05 Nissan Altima. My wife fell in love with the TSX. Very handsome auto with Tech package. A whole lot of useless gadgets. Paddle shifters that I will never use. Nav system is wonderful. Gives excellent fuel economy. Could use some additional interior and trunk room. Steering is somewhat quirky. Extremely sensitive and requires constant correction on straight highway driving. Ride just a bit too sporty. You feel every rut in the road. Handles very well. Very well built. Only problem was a defective speaker. Nice car!


Best Features

Tech package is great. Handles very well. Fuel economy.


Worst Features

Steering feel needs improvement. Ride quality is too harsh. Trunk too small

Review

Owned the TSX for a year and it's been the very worst experience I've ever had with a car. Within 5000 mile the car was in the shop for over a week with engine computer, sound system and break issues. Break issues never resolved and Acura refuses to solve the problem. Buyer beware!


Best Features

None


Worst Features

Produce a car that is reliable and safe to drive. The Acura TSX does not pass either test.

Review

Smoothest ride I have ever driven. I drove a rental car for a week and when i got back in my TSX I quickly felt the difference. Audio system is amazing, IPOD interface lacks a bit but works all in all. I have driven over 23,000 miles in my TSX and have enjoyed it every mile. Fuel mileage is good for this class car. I reviewed and test drove many others in this class and others offered far less for equal or more money. Reliability after 20,000+ miles - Vehicle shows no noticeable wear. Brakes ok, Interior ok, Exterior solid.


Best Features

Audio System, Trunk space for miles, Comfort, and Style (Nice upgrade from previous TSX)


Worst Features

A little more horsepower please. This seems to a theme on these reviews.

Review

I'm reporting after one year of ownership. Excellent car all around. Since I'm stuck in LA's traffic 90% of the time, the 4 cyl is more than enough for all situations. My main initial complaint was with the too stiff suspension. It has softened a little bit, but still a jittery ride on any surface. Too much for my comfort but I got used to it. It's quiet now that I changed the cheapo and noisy Michelins that came with the car. I put some Bridgestone Serenity (55X17) and what a difference they make. The only problem so far was a blown small speaker that had to be replaced.


Best Features

The amazing sound system but it's too bad that it's difficult to find music recorded in 5.1 surround, because it's when it truly shines.


Worst Features

The safety belt buckle is too low. I fight to attach it all the time. The passenger's higher. God knows why.
