Overall:

If you think that the Honda Accord is a reliable car, then meet its upscale cousin the Acura TSX. A tad smaller and better handling, this car rocks in four cylinder four door style compared to the staid Accord. That being stated, if you put it up against V6 Accord the Accord will beat out the Acura in a straight line. The TSX is no slouch either. Yes, the styling is forgettable. But, no, the TSX will not be quickly forgotten. Especially after a few spins in this sub-$30,000 vehicle. With that typical Honda four-cylinder engine that loves to rev, and sounds very good doing it, the TSX offers the wonderful blend of sharp handling, an upscale (again, understated) interior, a laundry list of standard equipment and even a navigation system that is one of the easiest I’ve ever used (should you need such a thing). It’s fun, fuel-efficient and even somewhat affordable – not to mention Honda reliable. But how could a “four-banger” ever earn a key into the sport sedan room, you ask? To which I say: Have you ever driven Honda’s four-bangers? Have you? The 2.4-liter, 200 horsepower, double-overhead cam i-VTEC motor actually doesn’t find its stride until you’re at about 6,800 rpm (that’s past red-line levels for us domestic folks). That means the TSX, with either its six-speed manual or five-speed automatic with Sportshift feature, finds its peak power, torque and acceleration when it is revving the most, not at the typically domestic low levels. Fun quotient just moved up a notch, or 10.

2005 Acura TSX Review
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.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Appearance, low cost to own

Cons: Average rear leg room

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Manual, fun to drive

Cons: None

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
