    2005 Acura TSX Review
    says:
    Ive owned my 05 TSX for one year now (bought 10 years old with 70,000 miles). I always wanted to own a fist gen TSX and I dont regret my purchase. I really like this car. What stands out the most is the excellent handling the car offers. It feels so much more planted than the 00 Accord I drove before it. Also, the bump in power from 150 to 200 horsepower is noticeable and appreciated, particularly the torque and even power band. The car does not struggle to get moving and it loves to rev out to 7000 RPM (nice exhaust note too). I still think the car looks sharp even at this age, and its a really comfortable car to commute in. I just wish mine had an auxiliary input or the ability to play MP3 CDs. I also regret not getting a manual transmission as I can only imagine how much more enjoyable it would be to drive. It does at least have a sport shift mode, which works pretty well by not being sluggish to shift. Overall the car feels solid and well built, poised to be on the road for many more years and miles.
    Back Seats Ranked 2000 Honda Accord worse.
    "Better bolstering, leather"
    Would Buy Ranked 2000 Honda Accord worse.
    "Looks better, faster, handles far better, gets similar gas mileage, extremely comfortable seats, more and better standard options"

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: nimble, fast off the mark, good looking, roomy, reliable, good quality of build and materials, nice trim level, good luxury options and great value for money

    Cons: fuel consumption , some of basic controls on screen making them too complex.

    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

    Pros: Look , great handling, and excellent fuel economy

    Cons: nothing

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The car is sleek, looks amazing and drives so smooth.  

    Cons: It only takes premium gas and I wish it would get better gas mileage.

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: SOOOO much fun to drive

    Cons: None

    It's Amazing — It's a Honda (Honda makes Acura), so it's definitely reliable. It picks up with awesome speed, especially in tip-tronic. Gas is just like any Honda, good. It is so much fun to drive, especially through the canyons to the beach.

    Pros: Sexy
