Love It — Owned my TSX for a year and a half, love everything about it. No repairs needed at all. Never failed on me. Only things I had to do is to change oil and fill it up. Would definitely recommend. You will like it too.

Love It — Love the car. Purchased it two years ago and drove for 30k miles with an issues. Definitely would recomend if someone was looking for sporty sedan with decent power. 6vspeed manual transmission is also a nice addition to the car.

Cons

It's way to long

Decent Sedan — I really enjoy this car until i have to park it. Its so long! I also hate how going 30 is impossible because the car either slows right off or thinks it should be doing 40.The car is fun to drive when nobody is around but often it takes off and it's not to often that i catch myself doing 140 but it happens, accidentally.

I Liek The Car, But Not As Much As My Malibu — It is a great car, I really like the sporty feel it has. It gets excellent gas mileage. It looks very sporty, and it has been a very reliable car. No major problems other then chronic brake squeaks. A really nice car.

Acura Tsx — I love the handling, it is nearly impossible to get it to lose traction. The interior is very ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing. It is absolutely stunning to look at and its a hoot to drive. Gas mileage could have been better though.

Deceptively Roomy And Peppy "small" Car — I like its styling neat but slightly understated and its performance and handling. Plenty of room given overall size. Great quality of build feels really solid on the road and option levels make it very luxurious when compared with some other "Premium" vehicles.

Go Acura Tsx — Great value, excellent handling. So far no mechanical issues. I hope that it would last for at leat 10 more years. The interiors feels like a million dollar car and the handling seems to be more german than japanese, but with the japanese reliability

Great Car Overall, Comfortable Ride And Beautiful Exterior. — Again, this car has a lot of great pros. It is a luxury car and really does feel that way. It has a great exterior, power everything, heated seats. Gas mileage is still good but wish it was better. Reliable and great car overall.

If You Are Young And Like To Have Fun On The Road, This Car Is For You. — Quick start for an I-4 engine. Powerful braking. Amazing handling and rockets through turns. Blew a fuse that regulate power to the electric outlets, and had problems with the power locks; nothing the warranty cant fix. Looks amazingly stylish on the outside, beautiful leather and silver trimming. Great gas mileage. Have paid nothing in repair costs thanks to warranty. A blast to drive, especially on small roads with lots of turns.

I Love My Car, The Only Thing That Could Make My Car More Perfect Is If It Had A 6 Speed! — i love my tsx..this car is perfect..i have never had a problem with this car mechanically. The only thing that would be a little better is my sound system at times i have to turn the bass down when music isnt that loud..over all i WOULD purchase again..next time maybe in a white 6-speed :)
