2006 Acura TSX Sedan 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I bought my TSX in 2006 and started having problems about a year later.
It needed to have major work done on the steering twice.
Both times the car was at the dealer for over a week.
Just glad it was still under warranty and the dealer gave me a loaner.
Also, I have had to replace the brakes more times on my TSX than I have ever had to on any other car.
The TSX has a cheap build quality and the paint scratches easily.
Also, there is a lot of road noise.
On the plus side, the dealer service staff is great.

2006 Acura TSX Sedan 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

TSX is the best all around value in the entry level luxury segment or maybe in any segment. After 21,000 miles in one year and 49,500 total there is not a squeak or rattle. I average 31-33 mpg highway w/ Mobil 1 synthetic oil. Service cost is low especially if you change filters yourself (simple). Road noise is muted. Super quiet engine. Headlights are very bright with wide illumination. Low insurance costs. This is my second TSX.


Best Features

Reliability! Automatic climate control, minimalist interior, heated seats, heated mirrors, muted road noise, smooth shifting A/T, supurb headlights, predictable solid handling. Not a BMW 3 series but close. Ultra quiet 4 cylinder engine.


Worst Features

Longer seat track for increased leg extension. 88 octane gas vs. 91 octane. Larger oil sump for longer drain intervals.

2006 Acura TSX Sedan 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Approaching 100k.Recently had the brakes done and new tires (oem)put on the car,it feels as new as the day it rolled off the dealer's lot.The controls still feel like they were dipped in butter.The clean,classic lines and overall styling of this car remains relevant.The car suffers from a lack of low-end torque & poor acceleration from a dead stop. Acura missed a golden opportunity to remedy this by not offering a turbo I4 (like the RDX) and thus maintaining the "agile/light/tossable" personality of this car. Test drove the new TSX and did not like the numb steering & dull interior ,may consider other options like the IS 350 AWD (increase HP, AT dual shift capability,heated/cooled seats,etc.


Best Features

Bluetooth, floor mounted gear shifter (Acura should put this back on their cars), nav system with voice recognition, smooth high rev/sweet sounding I4, seat warmers (my wife's favorite feature), dual zone climate control.


Worst Features

Seat cooling feature, more torque (esp low end) using turbo tech to maintain fuel efficiency & weight, rear view camera (may install one)yet, better engine mounts.

Review

This is a really fun vehicle to drive. It is especially good in the turns and has good power.


Best Features

it is a quality car, has good mileage with good power. I was looking for a car that has power with gas mileage and found it in this car.


Worst Features

Paint is average to below average. The radio is weak but I understand it has been upgraded in the newer models.

Review

95,000 miles and original brake pads still servicable, although rotors must be warped a little as the car has begun to shudder under braking from highway speeds. Car has recently developed a strange whine at times from the rear end(?) but only when backing up. These are the only issues this car has had in the 4 1/2 years we've owned it.
