2009 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan w/Technology Package (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
TSX-tech is a car without an overkill. It definitely has 3 E's in its engineering: Efficiency, Elegance and Economy. I took it to a long drive (during both day and night time driving) with lots of curves and elevation differences (characteristic in Colorado). You put 91-octane gas in it and it gives 33 mpg (with about 20% city-driving). I drove the car with average speed of 70+ mph with no hard braking and acceleration, though. The handling is great on sharp turns. When you need power it is there. It can easily take 85 mph and you see other cars well behind you. It has so solid feel that you feel confident on road. A great ride for the money. Attention new buyers, it is a green car.
HID lights, Nav system, ELS-surround Sound system is amazing. Ride quality and looks is great. No engine noise in the cabin (even at 85 mph). High quality materials used everywhere - a Honda characteristic. The car is affordable. Console can make a 747-pilot feel in the car.
Little bit of road noise exists. Should have rain-sensing wipers. Should have option for brighter light in console for night driving.
