I Love My Tsx — The 2008 Acura TSX is one of the most well-balanced packages available in the 30-grand price range. It is extremely well-appointed for an entry-level sedan. When i saaw it on the dealership i instantly fell in love with it. The car has 205 hp under the hood, maybe not as much as i would have hoped to have (other considerations were the Lexus IS-250, Nissan Altima V6, for example) but it is very fun to drive and very very comfortable as a daily driver. The Build quality is excelent. I personally chose the brushed aluminum interior on black, which i think is the sexiest and most luxurious type (Wood doesnt quite cut it for me). On the exterior, the TSX is quite remarkable, as it is very sleek, sporty and luxurious at the same time. As i said before, the TSX does not have an extremely powerful engine, but it is responsive (especially in shiftronic mode) and VERY fun to drive. Overall, i would recommend this car to anyone who wishes a very pleasant and fun drive without sacrificing too much money in the process.

2008 Acura Tsx Navi — Bang for buck...no other manufacturer offers anything even close to the TSX in its price range. Resale/residual is high as it is Honda. Fun car to drive with all the gadgets and it turns heads. Decent fuel economy. How can you go wrong? Answer...you can't…..best value out there bar none.

Great Car In It's Price Range. — Great car for me. I purchased it in 2010 and it was new so I got a great deal. I paid the price of a Civic with the same options and more. It needs to rev to get power and that increases gas consumption. The interiror is impecable and I have no extra options yet need no more except the radio whic has no USB or apple interface that is sad. However I purchase an third party adaptor that allows me to connect my IPOD Classic.

A Keeper — This is truly one of the nicest sport sedans I have ever owned. I originally leased it with the intention of getting another like I usually do at the lease end. However, I liked the car so much I kept it and really cannot imagine parting with it. It has probably the slickest shifting 6 speed I've ever driven and it's fun going to the store :-)

A Nice Cruiser On The Street And Hwy, However It Underperforms As A "sport Sedan".. — 2008 Base with navigation, lease... Overall an ok car which was really disappointing for me since I had a higher expectation, and the reasons are: Performance - acceleration and fuel economy. The engine makes little low end torque and feels lazy until VTEC hits high cam (5.5-6k rpm), and the anemic acceleration low end accel is exasperated by the widely-spaced 5-spd autobox. Fuel economy was not all that good for a 4-cyl engine (18-20mpg), even when not using VTEC at all. The K24 engine also idles more roughly than I expected. The sportsfhit has an acceptable shift time but is a bit rough to use 1st-2nd gear. The brake is weak and invokes ABS way too often... thanks to Honda (oops, I mean Acura) undersizing the discs and tires. In city driving the turning radius is not very good for U-turn or parking, and although the suspension is adequately firm and sporty yet smooth enough for street driving, the car pushes wide and understeers badly in tight corners, again thanks to the undersized tires. User interface - The navigation is low in resolution and allows you touch-screen interface on most operations except panning the screen - to do that you need to mess with a dinky lil "joy stick" below the monitor. And to access the a/c you must use the navigation screen, which can be annoying when you first started the car and have to wait for the navigation system to boot up and accept the warning label (roughly 5-10 sec). All of the above hindered an otherwise great value package ($30k MSRP) that offers a high content equipment list, beautiful styling in and out, quality feel and build. The car exudes a "sophisticated simplicity" (which means it's pretty and classy) whenever I see one on the street... but just not when I am driving it. It's a shame... Honda (oops, I mean Acura), please make the next Euro Accord / TSX FR!! LOL.

It's Great. — I am really happy. I feel I got a lot of car for the price, with excellent warranty still on it for several years to come. Also very happy with the dealership I bought from, and the dealer.

What A Package! — Great car overall, a little bland on the styling, but I think they have fixed that with the new 2009 model. A whole lot of car for under $30000. Why buy an Accord for close to the same price, when you have a better bulit car, longer warranty, quiter, more powerful, better oerforming engine, six speed manual, and extra ammenities such as Bluetooth, Xenon headlights, memory seats, and much more!

You Will Love Your Car Forever If Its An Acura Tsx — It looks sleek, and feels sleek. It is a great car with the price tag. I recommend getting it with all the extras. We did! The gas mileage isn't bad at all, since i know that is a big concern. The only downside is that this car only takes premium gas, which means that its at least 20 cents more expensive than regular unleaded.

Of All The Cars I Have Owned Around This Price Range, Not One Even Comes Close To This... — Car is a bit underpowered, but with a cold air intake, and the hondata chip reprogram, it is absolutely amazing! to have a car with this type of performance, quality, and comfort for this price was previously unheard of.
