2005 Acura TSX from North America
Very good, but not perfect
Takes one pint of oil per 1000 km. Dealer says it's normal.
Rattles of some loose plastic parts in the cabin (corrected with tape and glue).
When new, one of the main speakers - the one in the right door - was not plugged, the loose wire was rattling in the door.
Exterior paint quality is very average, scratches very easily and loses its luster.
The car is very comfortable, and the interior feels luxurious.
The sixth speed allows for reasonable fuel economy on highway. Definitively not a performance car.
Wish to keep it for another five years.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm sorry, but burning a pint of oil every 1000 kms is not normal for an engine. Not a good sign..
Maybe on an older car with very high mileage, but not on something this new. You are being misled.
This is a bad problem, and your dealer should admit responsibility. Just my advice.

Per J. D. Power, 62% of Honda/Acura and Ford owners remain with their brand. No other brand does better.
