2005 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I have had this vehicle for a total of four months and all I can say it that this is the most amazing vehicle I have ever owned. The sound system is by far the best out of all the vehicles that I have test driven. The Honda Accord and Civic cannot even compare to this system. I am not sure of the wattage but it sounds incredible. Bose, Harman Kardon... none of them can compare to this system that is in the TSX.


Best Features

sound system, powerful engine, luxurious interior... everything about the car.


Worst Features

none... the car is perfect.

2005 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I bought my Acura TSX AT w/ Navi a few months ago after conducting extensive research. It was between the Mini convertible, the new Volvo S40, and the TSX. I definitely made the right choice. The navigation system is GREAT. I can be anywhere and just tell the car to take me home, or I can pull up a list of nearby Chinese restaurants in less than 5 seconds. I disagree with reviews that it is overly complicated. The voice recognition does leave something to be desired, as it is only accurate about 60% of the time, but you won't need it. This is definitely the best "entry level luxury" car on the market for your money. Highly recommended!


Best Features

Navigation system, interior styling


Worst Features

The only feature I can think of adding is a memory driver seat.

2005 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6M)


Review

This car is top notch. No problems. No bugs to work out. A sweet ride at an excellent price. Acura should be proud. Hopefully new models will improve the options like install electric seat adjusters. That is my only complaint. ...And I'm picky.


Best Features

Everything


Worst Features

Electronic seat adjusters with memory

2005 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (2.4L 4cyl 6M)


Review

My wife just bought this car after 13 years and 250K in an Acura Integra, '92. Smooth, comfortable, and not "overly-teched", the car is simple to operate. Sunroof, leather seats, plenty of storage is standard. Acceleration is excellent, and 6 speed manual keeps you entertained while driving. Pricing is reasonable relative similar cars. We've been getting over 30-35 MPG. Acura reliability is the best in the business, the first scheduled maintenance (other than oil changes) is 100K.


Best Features

Acura fit and finish Not too many gadgets Price MPG


Worst Features

Center console limits driver leg room somewhat.

Review

could do much better with build quality on minor but irritating items. First month, discovered high pitch noise from ventilation fan. Third month, discovered creaking noise from the windshield. Currently, have buzzing noise from drivers door. Two of the three were eventually fixed after multiple visits to two dealerships. Other than these minor problems, it has been a great drive.


Best Features

Great balance of power, handling, and braking with comfort.


Worst Features

Taller gearing for 6th gear to get better gas milage, the manual gets 10% less milage than the automatic. 36 mpg would be great. More choice in tires. Only one brand fits.
