Pros

Looks, Design, Reliability, Space, Power, Handling (I am a New Englander who drove this car on heavily snowy roads - the ABS has been really good)

Cons

Electronics don't always sync seamlessly with all your devices, wish fuel efficiency was better given the aerodynamics, interior noise levels can be improved a bit

Acura Tsx - One Helluva Car With A Few Minor Kinks — By the time I am reviewing this car, Acura has stopped producing this car. And that is a bummer. This was the only car (when I bought it in 2011) that was directly imported from Japan (All others - MDX, TL, RDX, RL were manufactured in USA of select imported Japanese parts). After driving my trusty Corolla for 8-9 years, when it was time for me to upgrade, I wanted to make a rational decision by optimizing brand, luxury, price, features. At the end the Infinity G35 and TSX came on top (BMW 3 was close but it lost out on interior space). The clincher between the G35 and TSX was the price that the dealer offered to me. (I did test drive both and there was only minor difference in their performance). With relatively fewer horses (201 in the non-V6 model), the car provides ample gallop. Initially, I had some issues with the way the electronics worked (I am an engineer that likes to break down and reconstruct systems - so I am pretty intuitive about them). For example, often, the BT audio would not connect or when I would be connected via the USB cable, the songs would not load and it would default to BT or sometimes when you switched the ignition off in the middle of a song, it would not pick up from the same point, especially when you moved interfaces (BT to cable or vice versa) and so on. I have to say though, all of those issues seems to have gone away (or in-noticeable) over time (and I did not do any firmware update yet). But when I upgraded my phone to iPhone 6, sometimes, the BT phone interface would not work (that is a new problem and may be I will need to do a hardware disc update to take care of this after all). Some people may not like the dashboard interface with too many buttons - but I think I like the very tactile feel of various buttons and the way they are laid out - it grows over time on you. The engine is very reliable - I have kept my car submerged in ice and snow for weeks in record New England cold but it has never failed to start on the first attempt. The tires do lose pressure in the cold very frequently (go down from 32-33 to 24-26 psi) but they gain pressure by a few PSIs when you start driving. When driving on rougher roads, the cabin noise can be more than when you are driving inside a Lexus (which I think has the best interiors among lux cars). Overall, as I said, this is a very good car for the money - Acuras in general, I think, offer much more superlative value for similar (or even better) luxury features than comparable, more vaunted models from BMW, Jaguars, Mercs, Audis etc. It is indeed a good thing that most people don't know about that - because if they discover that, those of us who love Acuras will have to pay higher for the brand. In Pre-2011, many of the electronic features in this TSX were really premium - and which came at a reasonable cost compared to other luxury models. Woefully and understandably, as in-car electronics are improving by leaps and bounds every year, the fairly advanced geeky features (such as the Multi Instrument Display - MID or the BT phone or the GPS - which is touchless) in the TSX already look obsolete compared to 2014-15 models. It is a bummer that TSX production has been ceased as Acura streamlines its brand line-up. But the ILX is a little too small (and made on the Civic platform) - TLX may be a bit too pricey. TSX would have fit neatly in the middle - especially if they had kept on updating the model in terms of electronics and other features. Hope you all find this review helpful.

Great Value For Sport Unassuming Sedan — I just recently got this car and really love it. It's handling is just amazing and suspension system are just so solid. This is a great car for anyone who wants a sports sedan that isn't flashy but is just a joy to drive.

Acura Tsx — This is a great car to drive, very reliable and great gas mileage. Has plenty of power for a 4 cyl. Very comfortable ride and very roomy. This was my first Acura and I would definitely recommend buying an Acura for the dependency and safety.

Love This Car — The only complaint is that I would like to be a little higher off ground but realize this is not an SUV. Otherwise a dream to drive and gets great gas mileage. I have 30k and so far no problems.

Acura Tsx Is Best! — Performance is not bad but little noisy in higher rpm. Acura is the best quality, no issue. I like a heat seat. The maintenance in the dealer is no costs in 4 years. I added the KN air filter, acceleration and gas mileage are little increased. MUCH FUN!

Pros

Great Highway mileage, excellent handling considering it's heft, exceptionally quiet.  Holds a ton of gear. 10k cheaper than an Audi/BMW similarly spec'd.

Cons

No manual transmission offered.  The factory battery is tiny, will replace it with something more substantial eventually

Excellent Road Trip Car. — Very happy with the purchase, although I do wish the wheel wells were slightly less intruding. I liked it more than the Forester, STI/WRX and Lexus CT200. Although each one of those cars beats the TSX Wagon in one category, as a total package it's nearly perfect. Having a manual would probably net me a few more MPG.
