Acura CSX is a gas saver with enough power for a 4 cylinder car
Sun Nov 13, 2011 - I've owned this car since June 2011. Nothing major so far.
A/C gas was totally empty when I purchased it.
The transmission is jumpy.
The engine is noisy with slight shifter noise.
Leather is poor quality, scars easily.
The AC filter was filthy. Wear and tear.
What is worse is the wheel lock nut broke while I was changing the summer tires to winter. So I am stuck with just 1 winter rim on with 3 summer rims on a Sunday afternoon! I see on the forums that others with Acura are reporting the same problem with wheel lock nuts.
The paint quality is very poor.
I owned a Lexus GS400 - V8 (300HP) prior to purchasing this. It is fully loaded with leather, 6 CD MP3/CD player, AC, adjustable steering column, semi-automatic gears.
Compared to my wife's 2003 Toyota Corolla, this car is noisy. Has enough power for a 4cyl, but not enjoyable like a V8. My Lexus GS400 (V8) was costing me $600 per month on gas, but this car with the same traveling costs me around $180 per month, which is a money saver.
It takes all day for the Acura dealership to do oil change! So my Saturdays got wasted. So I started going to a walk-in lube station. Actually it made a huge improvement to my engine noise when I started going in to the walk-in lube station, as I can see what type of oil they were using. I think my local Acura / Honda dealership cheats by putting in very poor quality oil and filters.
The car has not given me any major problems, and my kids like it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
