"I bought this from original owner in 2003. It had 65,000 miles on it. I drove it as my primary vehicle for 8+ years; now my kids drive it. It is dependable, solid and comfortable. Recommended maintenance work has been done on it over the years, but that's it. CD player went on it, but kids use ipod/cassette adapter for their music. Some rust has developed; I live in Vermont; it happens, but that has been patched with quality work. Enjoyed this one so much I bought a used 2007 TSX as my one-way work commute grew from 9 miles to 34 miles. I've become an ardent Acura fan."

"I have driven 170,000KM of the cars 240,000 KM, and it has not stranded me twice, the only time was a built up corrosion on the battery post, thats all. fast enough, handles well when pushed to extreme, quiet, the best car I've had. My son now drives it to College, as I will not sell it outside of the family, its just too good to let go."
