After giving up on purchasing the new buick lacrosse, we stopped to see the Acura TSX. One look, one drive, and we bought it on the spot, something we have never done before. Handles like a sports car, braking effortlessly, and the 4 banger is more than adequate with the 5 speed automatic. The technology package is overkill and we still haven't made use of all its features, and probably never will, but the nav, audio and back up camera are nice features, as well as the bluetooth. Would recommend the car, but not sure the tech package is worth the $3k. If you can get along with the std stereo, and an aftermarket nav, I would save the money.

Value & Guilty Pleasure

by from Atlanta on September 4, 2010

After 5 years and zero complaints with a 2005 TSX we popped for the V6 this time and everything about the car is incrementally better -- not a lot, but better. The engine is a hoot -- smooth when you're trying to behave and "see ya!" when you mash it. Brakes and steering are tight and the stiff ride will not appeal to Buick owners, but I feel well-anchored to the road, no floating around. The back-up camera is mainly fun but also useful for seeing grandkids on hot wheels. Ipod and bluetooth controls take a little getting used to, but they're good. Sound system is way cool; NAV system is very fun (including traffic and weather info which we do not have on the 2005). Back seat seems not as roomy or as easy to get in and out of as the 2005, but for average sized people it's comfy once you're in there. After 4 months and 3600 miles the computer says I've averaged 29.5 miles per gallon. On a couple of all day highway adventures it said 32.5 mpg. To be honest the goofy grin on the grille took a while to get used to, but I'm there now. And it helped that a couple of guys who drive Jags and CTSs complimented the way the car looks. The grin is a signature right? And signatures are supposed to be unique. So there. And finally, as much as I love the engine (my wife gives me little digs about driving with a heavy foot, but doggone it's too much to resist) I'm not sure it's worth the extra cost. The 4 cyl is completely adequate for a reasonably mature adult. The V6 is for those with more money than sense. And it's not THAT much money!

Had a '04 TL prior and it was totaled at 125K miles. I've also owned BMW and Lexus as well. My TL was nice but this is even nicer. If you have to replace a TL, the TSX does nicely. I'ce had this for 2 months now and I'm averaging well over 30 MPGs combined, and it has plenty of power...a lot for a 4 cyl. I'm getting between 450-500 miles per tank combined. I have the NAV and it really improves the sound system. Very comfortable, reliable, and great looks. I always do my homework when shopping for a car and I'm glad I picked the TSX. I even have a hitch that I installed for my bicycle and it works great! I'm glad I chose this over the 2010 TL!

all i really have to say about this car is that it is very stylish, i love it, both inside and out...if i could change 1 thing though it would be to have more space in the back. luckily, i don't have any children as of now so that's not really a big issue for me, but for some of yall out there, you may want to re-consider if you have a family

A beautiful car--the dark red exterior, the lack of protection molding on the side to accent the lines, and the black leather interior with burnished steel gray accents. Getting used to the handling--couldn't afford the V6, but the 4cyl is OK--we will see. Features--incredible audio system--but fancy voice navigation system leaves out street names--major problem!--will get a portable to put in front. Value--could have gotten a Ford Fusion for a lot less, and it has some crucial added features (10G HD for audio recording/retrieval, blind spot technology). BUT I went for the eyes and the ears, and the TSX was heavily discounted. Reliability--don't know yet--thought I had a problem, but it turned out to be me!

This is my second TSX, the new version is larger and more comfortable. The interior is much more upscale and luxurious. The steering and suspension is not as tight as the first gen but the acceleration is improved. While the I miss my old TSX this one is growing on me. If you want a quite comfortable daily driver with excellent fuel mileage 36.2 at 70 mph you can't go wrong. Get the tech package it is worth the every penny.

We have our TSX for 12 months now. Let me begin with we own and are loyal Acura owners. Other than the exterior style, which is not the best Acura has come up with, It is hard not to like. At least it looks better than the TL!! Any way the 4 cylinder is powerful enough. The fuel millage is great. When my Wife was at her other job it was a highway commute each day. So millage was probably 80% highway.As per the computer she was getting 31.5 mpg. all the time. Her commute to the new job is a much shorter distance and is now probably 80% city and is now getting 21.0 mpg. Only problem has been a intermittent engine ping. The dealer has given me a hard time about doing the "re-flash" that is supposed to solve the issue. When it goes back in I will demand it be done. I contacted Acura client relations and they say the car is included in the program. Quality of materials is very good, the can has very good to almost sporty handling. Seats are very comfortable, not quite as good as in the 2001-2003 CL/ TL series but close. Plenty of room with a very large trunk! It will be in the family for a long time!
