2004 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6M)


I bought this car used in Feb. '07 with 70k, and after almost a year of driving, I couldn't be happier! This car provides a perfect balance of sport, luxury, and economy. To do this, of course, trade-offs are required. The ride leans towards sporty, resulting in excellent handling but sometimes harsh on poor roads. The engine needs to be above 4k rpm for thrills, but keeping revs down gives excellent gas mileage (I avg 29 with mixed driving). The interior is pure luxury, but seats are still great for hard cornering. Steering, controls, incredibly slick 6sp tranny, dbw throttle, everything in this car exudes precision, which translates to an enjoyable drive thru mtn. roads or city streets.

Best Features

Manual transmission! If you can't drive stick, learn on your buddy's beater and buy the 6sp! Superb handling. Gas mileage (I avg 34 mpg and got 500+ miles on one tank driving from SF to LA). Comfortable and clean. Love roadtrips in this car. Very reliable. Great list of standard features.

Worst Features

Cooled seats would be welcome. Drop in the RDX's 2.3 turbo and SH-AWD for a very interesting offering in between the STI/EVO and 335i/S4 market segments.
