Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Top quality for a great value.
Cons: Insufficient horsepower?
Advice: Test drive the car and find out for yourself!I knew I wanted a performance sedan, but had not given much thought to an Acura (maybe a new BMW 3-series or another Audi?). My plans changed once I got a look at the TSX. Great Euro-styling, 100% Japanese-made, safety features galore and of course, the value. I purchased a metallic silver, 5-AT with Navi on the spot; also added some accessories, too. After having driven this beauty for several weeks, my overall impression is: can't be happier with my purchase. Having owned an A4, I can safely say that the TSX is a hands-down winner across the board. Although the 200-hp may seem wimpy, it's a completely different story once you test drive the car: great VTEC and agile handling (thanks to VSA). The sport shift also cures those itchy right hands too! Acura of Manhattan is the THE BEST! Verdict: GREAT BUY
Pros: Navigation W/Voice Command
Cons: Automatic Shifter Gate
Advice: BUY IT!I am not usually a guy who would consider a 4-cylinder car, but this car changed my mind. It has 200-hp available throughout the power band and it also gave me 32-mpg on the highway! Who could ask for more! Everything about the car exudes quality and style..my friends are envious!
Pros: Voice-activated Navi, Sequential Sport shift (manual option on the automatic), leather seats, seat warmers, sound system, mpg...everything.
Cons: no power passenger seat
Advice: Get the navi (if you can afford it); the Carbon Grey Pearl is sweet; do your research and then go take a test drive.The TSX provides European performance with Japanese reliability. It combines comfort, fun, reliability, power and style. And the price is reasonable, especially when compared to the cost of other cars in this class. I knew the first time I test drove the TSX (after doing a fair amount of research on it) that this was going to be my car. I think I got lucky by needing a car at the right time. This car is awesome...and the navigation system is so cool!
Pros: The powertrain package (5-speed automatic).
Cons: Lack of computer functions.
Advice: Drive both the AT5 and MT6 trannies, before making your decision.Amazing technology and features packed into a great car for a great price. Well done, Acura!
Pros: STYLING AND ELEGANT INTERIOR
Cons: NO PASSENGER POWER SEAT
Advice: BETTER BUY THAN COMPETETIONCLEAN ELEGANT,STYLING INSTDE AND OUT. QUIET CRUISING EVEN AT 80 MPH. WITH AUTO HOLDING 3RD GEAR IN MANUAL MODE ENABLES QUICK AND PRECISE NEGOTIATING OF CURVED ROADS. DOESNT HAVE LOW END TORQUE OF BMW 330, NOR QUITE AS FAST,BUT COSTS 14,000 LESS!
Pros: Navigation System w/ voice command.
Cons: Front wheel drive
Advice: 'is to purchase the automatic w/ sequential 5 speed gear box' Oh yeahI love stick driven cars, but with this TSX automatic w/ sequential gearing it is the bomb!. It's as much fun driving this car around town with one less foot foot work on the clutch. And if your holding a busy conversation on the road, just stick it in automatic and the way you go with less hassle. The power that TSX provide is or should I say, don't let it fool you. On sequential gearing;or the manual stick mode, the torque band is much greater. Go figure...!I have purchased this TSX for my wife, so that she can travel with comfort and style. And with the Navigational System, it gives her the confidence to travel with her clientel while showing their new home to be.
