    Reliable, Value, But Boring And Slightly Cramped. — I like the simple, reliable part of the Acura but it's somewhat boring. The technology is terrible and no one can hear me on Bluetooth connection. The rear seat is cramped and my kids hate riding in my car; although it's a nice drive but nothing amazing.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great reliable car, nice handling and nice trunk size.

    Cons: small rear seat, conservative styling, basic technology and poor Bluetooth.

    This Car Is Absolutely Perfect For Everyone Who Wants Fuel Efficient — I really like this car for routine activity. It's fast, cost efficient, pretty car. I love the color(gray) and the sunroof where can open it to enjoy the fresh air. This car's model is so sporty where it is so cool for daily uses.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Acura TSX is smooth. The ride is smooth, the pick up speed is smooth.
    It is beautiful and sporty, gray exterior with black interior.

    Cons: A little small in the back seats. But quite nice exactly.

    Great Car.. Can See Why.. Because 100% Made In Japan — Great car and the quality is outstanding. I like it so much, I plan to give this one to my daughter and I will get myself a newer one with a 6-Speed Manual transmission. I only wish it does not need Premium gas.

    Pros: Reliable, quality workmanship, good styling

    Cons: Not a 6-Speed manual and the ride is kind of hard

    Good — Okay so I bought a 2013 Acura TSX w/5 spd-automatic trans. and the 2.4L inline 4-cyl engine. It seemed like a great buy, and it mostly was. Performance-wise, it is actually quite a bargain. The 2.4L offers surprisingly good pickup when you need it. Press the accelerator down to the floor and it shoots forward unlike any 4-cyl I've driven before, even more than my friend's '04 TSX I test drove a few years back. I love the 2.4's engine sound at high rev's, once you approach it's 7,100-rpm redline it screams with egotistic swagger and it sounds great! 5-spd shifts very accurately and smoothly. Handling is fairly impressive but not incredibly sporty, mostly due to the fact that the 2nd-gen TSX has electric steering instead of the previous hydraulic system. The suspension is fairly stiff and somewhat unforgiving over poor roads so it's not the best for those wanting cushy-comfort rides. But overall not too bad of a ride on smooth and average roads. The interior is quite comfy, with great interior quality and attention to detail and pretty good seat, although the front passenger seat lacks some crucial lateral support, which I found rather strange. The rear seat is still tight, almost like the lifted the same one out the 1st-gen TSX an placed it here. Anyone over 5'11 won't be very happy back there. Interior tech is fantastic, with a standard iPod dock so I can rock out to my favorite songs. The navigation system works well and isn't overly complicated unlike most new cars these days. Controls are adequate as far as being easy to use. The trunk is actually pretty roomy for a sport compact. Exterior styling is great. I really dig the pointy front nose and flat minor rear decklid spoiler on the trunklid. Great job on the styling, Acura. The verdict: Acura has left me with a smile on my face and I'm satisfied with it's mild sporty character, great interior design, and sleek exterior styling. What a great value it represents. I greatly recommend it to someone who wants a nice sporty little car with intuitive interior tech, styling, and more. Thank you Acura.

    Pros: nice car

    Cons: no negitives

    Great Car For Everyday Use — I have had this car for a year and not had one problem with it. It has been thoroughly reliable and has served me well. If I did not move to a city, I would have had this car for the long term.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: For the price, maintenance and comfort of the car I felt that I stood toe-to-toe with any mid-size luxury sedan. Great car for young professionals.

    Cons: My only con would be the 2009 GPS interface and the sound quality of the speakers. The new TSX seems to have improved in both those areas.

    This Car Is New To Me. — I've only had it for about a week, so I'll let you know later. So far, it drives nice, feels sporty, and accelerates well for a four-cylinder. It looks nice on the outside, but the interior feels a little cheap with a lot of plastic.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Styling, fuel economy, comfortable front seats, technology package, xenon headlights.

    Cons: Plastic interior.

    This Is A Great Car But It's Really Easy To Go Over The Speed Limit (unintentionally) — I love the car but the key fobs need work, when you hold unlock for three seconds it opens all the windows + sunroof but when you hold lock it won't close the windows you have to go in the car and manually close all the windows

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: 6-speed manual shifts smooth/ great sound system (Buy the optional subwoofer)

    Cons: none

    09 Tsx — Bluetooth phone connection is amazing Leather seats have great support Powerful for a 4 cylinder engine Oil changes and maintenances can be costly Insurance for this car is costly Definitely a fun sports sedan Wished it had RWD instead of FWD

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great Gas Mileage, Soft Perforated Leather Seats, Fun to drive, Powerful for a 4 Cylinder Engine

    Cons: Paint chips too easily, Navigation/Center Screen has ALOT of glare, Could use a V6, Bucktooth front grille can take a while to get used to

    Dream Come True. — It took my breath away from the first moment I sat in it ... and I never got that breath back. I envy myself driving down the road. I catch myself feeling like a little boy who got a matchbox car and can't put it down or let anyone else touch it.

    Pros: Absolutely everything. They really hit the jackpot with this model!

    Cons: Only 1 - the XM Radio does not refresh the songs continouosly, only a few songs after the Radio comes on.
