2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon: Scuffed Up
March 15, 2011
As you enter and exit a vehicle, your heel can sometimes make contact with the seat base. I imagine the finest plastics withstand this affront without any scars but such is not the case with the plastic found in our TSX Sport Wagon. At just 3,300 miles, the seat base (on the driver side) looks a bit worse for wear.
There's also some noticeable bruising on the glove box and front passenger-side door, in areas where I imagine the legs and feet make frequent contact.
Wiping the plastic with a soft cloth didn't do much to improve its scuffed appearance.
I don't think brutish editorial behavior is to blame here, unless you want to blame the team for having functioning legs and feet. The Sport Wagon serves as a family vehicle for many owners; seems like sturdy plastics should be part of the package for a vehicle competing in that segment.
Any scuff marks on the seat base, glove box and door of your vehicle?
