Pros

Comfortable, sporty, good mpg, low maintenance, and still fun to drive.

Cons

Not enough power to hang with Porches in the straight aways...

Not Your Average 4 Door. — For a daily driven car, it has a good balance of everything. The performance of the car is not lacking from the factory, plenty of power (200hp), ride is smooth, handling is balanced, and has a luxury feel. It also gets 25-30 mpg, depending on how I drive. Interior is very nice, no cheap plastics and no rattles after 118k miles. Did I mention I have tracked this car a few weekends and I drive it 35k miles a year? Only problem in last 60k miles was the AC compressor and power steering hose.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Appearance, spaciousness, luxury sport sedan comparable to BMW 3 series and Lexus IS 250 for $1,000's less!

Cons

Could use better gas mileage AND power...and hell, a better sound system while we're at it!

Overall, It's Exactly What I Wanted. A Well-rounded Sport Sedan That Brings A Lot To The Table. — Performance - it's punchy, but coud use a little more beef for a 2.4L 4 cyl Appearance - solid outside AND inside (where it matters most! Cost of Ownership - a bit expensive, and relatively poor mileage for something associated with Honda...the damn 20's get me just over 20 mpg's zipping around San Diego! Fun Factor - it's a stallion.

Seems like there's more power than is actually there

Cons

Nothing that I can think of.

My Acura Tsx Opinion — It's an all around great car, great fuel economy, priced right & legendary Honda build quality. Not everyone's cup of tea, I know. But just an all around great car that seems to do just about everything well. No complaints from me.

Pros

air conditioner (very cool air), brakes, standard stereo, disc changer (not standard), remote stereo/cruise, sunroof/moonroof (standard), lighted dash (entertains passengers lol), comfy seats, safety (steel cage, lots of curtain airbags), gas mileage (not bad for a sporty car that isn't too small), I could go on..

Cons

gas mileage in this horrible over $4 gas.

Amazing. — I researched this car on the internet before I got it and people seemed to love them They were reliable, attractive, sporty, safe, etc. The moment I saw this car, I was in love. It's a light blue with medium gray interior, it's sooo cool. I don't have any pics on this computer but I'll get some =]

Cons

-too small for my taste

Very Reliable — For a 200 horsepower 4-cyl. car, this thing is really quick. It sounds beautiful when you put the accelerator to the floor. It handles great, looks great, lasts forever . . . what else can I say?

Lots Of Bang For The Buck — I have a 2004 Acura TSX in Nighthawk black with the black leather interior and aluminum trim. I love the fact that everything is standard on this car, the HID headlights, leather, powered drivers seat (on the 06 and newer TSX both front seats are powered), heated seats, 6 disc cd changer, moonroof, and all for well under 30,000 out the door! Audi, BMW, Lexus, and Mercedes cannot touch that! The car is pretty quick, gets great gas mileage, cheap to insure, cheap to maintain, and has very comfortable seats. On the downside the radio isnt very loud. When driving 80 mph on the highway with the windows down I turn the volume all the way to the max, and still want more :( I also wouldnt mind sacraficing some gas mileage for an extra 2 cylinders.

A Great Luxury Compact Sedan That Handles Like A Sports Car !!!!! — I would recommend an acura Tsx 04 to any one who wants to experience a fun, reliable , great on gas and classy looking car to a couple with no kids as of yet over many compact sedans on the market now, hands down.

Stylish, Dependable — At the time we bought the car in 04 the price was affordable. Took a road trip to Orlando FL it was a little unconfortable, not enough leg room. You do get noticeable road noise. The car handles great, I think better than any car in it's class.

Exellent Braking Accelaration And Handling. — Gas mileage, accelaration, looks and handling. Very safe, air bags for front, side and curtains. All tires match and in very good shape. I have not had any mechanical problems. There are no blind spots. This car is a lot of fun to drive.
