Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I have had this car for almost 11 years now and I am STILL tickled pink to get into it every day. It is safe, comfortable; we have had to do nothing with it other than new brakes/tires once and regular timely services (oil change, etc.).
It is not as fast or nimble as my husbands Acura TL but it certainly holds it's own. It consistently provides comfort and security for tooling around town, to work, and even on long trips to other states.
I would highly recommend this as a used car to anyone sending their child off to college or to anyone else who is looking for the best "bang for the buck"."
"A posted review of the Acura on your site claims the Acura was good because it had a timing belt rather than a chain. This is incorrect it is better (as is Hondas and early Toyotas because it has a Chain not a belt."
"I've had my car for about 7 years and 100,000 miles. I bought it used with a formerly salvaged title and it has been an extremely reliable car that is fun to drive, has great interior features, and is very sturdy and safe. As others have said, this car is bullet-proof. I have done routine maintenance reliably, and the only issue I've had to have fixed was the alternator which went at about 120,000 miles, as they tend to do. Also, I read-ended someone a couple years ago (oops!) and it didn't leave a single scratch or dent on my car. My one complaint about the car is that the navigation system is not very reliable.. understandably it has become outdated as roads have changed over the years, but I've driven new Acuras and they all use the same poorly designed system that takes you the most roundabout ways to get places. I only ever use the nav as a backup to my cell phone."
"I purchased my 2006 Acura TSX pre-owned from an Acura dealer in mid-2010 with 48,000 miles on it; it had come off of a lease and was in very good condition. Simply put, this car is exceptional - fun to drive, loaded with luxury options, great looking, surprisingly inexpensive to own and maintain, and reliable. I could not be happier with this vehicle."
