Nothing competes with this car in it's price range by Lee Tampa on 01/27/2012. Trim: 2005 Acura TSX 5-Spd AT, Owned 3 years.
Pros: The Acura TSX is the best bang for your dollar entry luxury sedan. The build quality is on par or better than most higher end luxury vehicles. The instrument and control layout is excellent. The lighting (interior and headlights) is excellent. The comfort is good but not as good as other more expensive luxury cars. You get good performance out of this vehicle in acceleration, handling, and braking for its price range. The factory stereo system is ok to good. Good for a stereo system but only ok for a premium sound system. MPG is great and extremely reliable. Acura trusts the engine to handle oil changes every 10,000 miles per the manual! This shows how well the engine is constructed.
Cons: Has to take 93 premium gas to achieve its 200 rated horsepower. Would have liked a little better sound system but I'm not complaining as it still sounds good.
Overall review: If you want an entry level luxury / performance sedan then buy this vehicle. Some others might be faster or have more comfortable seats. But overall I strongly believe that no other car matches the TSX for the price. I sold my 1996 accord with 225,000 miles and it was running fine when sold. The TSX is far better built. I expect at least 300,000 miles out of this car.
