The car handles so great. I love cornering on the highways without touching my brakes and whipping off the on ramp w/o hesitation. The acceleration could be beefed up though. After a few months, it's losing that new car edge but it's still so much fun to drive. When I pass people I pretend I'm in a Porsche.
I like the sporty look of the fog lights and the regular lights are just bright enough. I'm sure they blind oncoming traffic at night, but they're good on corners and hills.
Inside, the TSX is comfy and cosy. So comfy and cosy that I nearly knock myself out every time I try to slide in. Weird, b/c I'm only 5'4". The seats hug on long drives and cushion some of the outright shakes the car tends to suffer over potholes and such.
One thing I hate is the Audio console. There's some flimsy, plastic sheet covering it and it causes the worst, unavoidable glare over the screen.This reeks on the highway. I'm spending seconds squinting at the console when I should be watching the road. Which brings me back around to the brakes. They're good. Panic stops are no problem at all for the TSX.
Ipod integration. The little knob in the middle is convenient, but I do hate that after I choose a song I have to go all the way back to Aritist then Album then Song just to change the tune. I could use the steering wheel button to skip but sometimes the song title just doesn't show up on the console and I don't have the patience to sit there listening to snippets of every song until I find the one I want.
All of those minor details aside, the car is great value for the money. It handles perfectly- powers up when you need it to, though you won't be racing Corvettes any time soon. The ride is comfy if a little tight. It's technologically strange but just plain fun once you get over the small structural difficulties.
It's great for young drivers especially b/c it feels so safe and stable on the road and it actually is. The TSX really gives you confidence behind the wheel b/c of that. I would recommend this car for anyone who likes a car that can handle itself.
