Great car; but oil burning issue is SERIOUS
By gipmeister on


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


I have enjoyed this car very much and it is generally very reliable. However, there are issues with this year/model that are common to many owners:
- the door lock actuators die
- the a/c system can die prematurely
- the clutch in the 6MT dies early
- the car will begin to burn oil
My car with >130k now burns about a quart every 1-1.5k miles. If not regularly monitored (before the oil light comes on when you're down 2qts)
Other people have had the console lights die and the dealer fix is hundreds of dollars.
I STILL give the car a decent review, but I would not advise someone to buy an '04 used because of this.

Best Features

Extra lighter/12V jack in console. Fold down armrest/drink holder btwn back seats (my kids love it)
