New 2009 Purchase
By jhigbie on
2009 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan w/Technology Package (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Have owned the new TSX for one week: 400 miles: very smooth, quiet ride. 3 inches added to the width makes the front seats spacious compared to previous model and BMW3. Armrest slides forward. Lots of drink storage. Monstrous DVD audio,10 speakers. Easy link with mp3 and iPod. Easy to learn nav, best for cities and highways. Bluetooth easy to link. Push back acceleration from 30 to 80, shift from 1st to 2nd hesitates at slow acceleration. Paddle shifting in manual mode. About town gas mileage 25, long distance trip 30 mpg. Soft ride yet still some jiggle. Steering tight yet isolated. Remains level on curves. Back seat raise above front seat. Trunk space good--pass through to back seat.
3rd gear acceleration. Seats, nav, audio system, no lean on curves. Gas mileage. Angular design.
Thin floor mats. Hesitation on 1st to 2nd shift at low acceleration. Slippery steering wheel.
