2008 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

My TSX is a great sports sedan that has enough room to carry 4 adults but still small enough for efficient daily commuting with only the drive. This vehicle replaced my Altima, and I love its smaller size and increase in power. The seats at first were very stiff, but after 2 weeks & 350 miles, they broke in and are now very comfortable. For normal in-town commuting and highway driving, this car is very lightweight and nimble. Personally, I do not need the V6 power, and this car's inline-4 delivers very well.


Best Features

All the standard features - bluetooth, Multi-Information Display, powerful sound system. Comfortable back seats. Unique design.


Worst Features

Auto-on headlights; compass; push- button/keyless doors & ignition

2008 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I love this vehicle to death! There is no car out there that will come close in value, comfort, stereo system, appearance and last but not least the price! This is a luxury sports sedan that is totally amazing. This car is quick and fast for a 4 cylinder. Get the TSX! Totally awesome car! Can't beat it!


Best Features

Navigation system with touch screen and voice recognition, great gas mileage, appearance (very sexy with chromes and tinted windows), heated seats.

2008 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Great car. Very fun to drive and very difficult to take foot off the gas to slow down even though the 0-30 mph could use some help after that its a rocket. Great standard features that require no further addition. Good price and overall value. Initial MPG is not so good. First 2 weeks of ownership: city: 16-18 mpg highway: 18-22 mpg. I hope it gets better as the car is broken into.


Best Features

XM, Bluetooth, HID-Xenon lights and fogs. Memory seat, sound system. Heated seats/mirrors, dual zone climate control.


Worst Features

Memory mirror settings, auto off lights, auto off mirror and rear defrost. Longer XM subscription. HID high beams and fogs. More torque, standard spoiler.

2008 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This car replaces a 2004 TSX manual without the Nav and no built in XM. This a great car for the money. There is no other model out there with the same features and quallity for the price (aroung 30k). The 08 car has a lot more bells and whistles than the 04 version and I love it. The biggest downside to this car is the underpowered engine. I had a manual last time and went with the automatic this time... big mistake. The manual allows you to get much more power out of the engine.


Best Features

XM radio, Blutooth (works great), hands free link, power seats and memory. Heated seats. Love the naviagaiton system. Voice command system works great. Fit and finish is flawless!! Interior is very nice.


Worst Features

More power. Are there any other cars in this class with a 4 cylinder engine for 30k? I doubt it. Probably won't buy another unless they increase the engine size.

2008 Acura TSX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I looked at Lexus, BMW 3s, Audi, Benz & Infiniti. Feature to feature, sticker to sticker, NO CONTEST. Classy look, beautiful interior, every option standard (not nav.) for $5-10K less. I've owned 2 Hondas before, 1 Audi, and 1 MB-E class. This is a great car for those $3.50+ per gal. fill-ups without feeling like you are stuck with a boring ride. It handles great in the corners, stops swiftly, hauls tail on the freeway and still gets my blood pumping. I love this car, but when they get a V-6 or turbo, I'm soooo there! I needed better mileage, which the TSX delivers (26 in major traffic everyday). The TL was too heavy feeling for me and I know I would be getting WAY too many speeding tickets


Best Features

Bluetooth, leather seats, dual climate controls, great mileage, solid Acura reputation.


Worst Features

V-6, daytime running lights, auto headlight (yes, I'm spoiled).
