2009 Acura TSX 2.2

Summary:

Dead reliable and my best vehicle

Faults:

1. Exterior pillars were replaced by dealership.

2. Current passenger-side airbag recall.

3. Minor cosmetic items such as worm arm-rest and shifter due to normal age.

4. XM radio no longer functioning.

5. Premature brake pad wear in front.

General Comments:

At 154k, this car has been extremely extremely reliable. It's primarily a commuter car and averages 33 MPG to and from work on the OEM tires. As far as the brand, I just wish Acura would bump up their styling - very lacking when compared to competitors.

Overall this has been my best vehicle. Still has no engine, A/C, or trans issues and no rattles. As the original owner, I have always changed my oil per the manufacturer's recommended interval (approx 8600 miles) and perform an oil lab analysis during each change. Results come back excellent.

2009 Acura TSX 2.4

Summary:

My best vehicle ever

Faults:

Exterior pillar moldings on each side of the front windshield came loose and were replaced at no cost.

Excessive wear of OEM brake pads.

General Comments:

Solid and reliable. I have only had to service the vehicle with routine maintenance items aside from the two items listed above. By far, the most reliable vehicle I have owned. Even with 140,000 miles, the power-train is flawless and it still drives without a single squeak or rattle.

2009 Acura TSX with premium audio package 2.4 liter i-vtec

Summary:

An excellent example of Acura quality

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong with the car to date.

General Comments:

Overall, the car is a pleasure to own and drive. I purchased the car in dark grey with the grey leather interior. It looks very sharp, very comfortable.

The premium audio package is impressive, and the car performs very well. No body roll even on sharp corners, long but precise shift throws, just the right amount of engine noise.

While the horsepower may not be up to par with Infiniti or BMW, the car is a joy to drive, but get the 6 speed :)
