2007 Acura TSX Review

By

Acura's TSX competes in the bustling compact premium sedan market. Although not as large or powerful as the Audi A4 or the new BMW 3 Series, price, quality and exceptional resale value make the TSX a worthy competitor. The TSX delivers an exceptional balance between ride comfort and road handling, and returns fuel economy figures rivaling some economy cars. If you can live without a V6 engine and the option of all-wheel drive, the well-equipped TSX has much to offer, especially when considering its sub-$30,000 price tag.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you grew up with Honda Civics and Preludes, but your new position in the world demands driving an upscale sedan, you'll love this car. The TSX has the capability to serve as a business vehicle on the weekdays and a driving enthusiast's dream on the weekends. Its tight, six-speed manual transmission and powerful VTEC engine make it a blast to drive.

You May Not Like This Car If...

You may not like the TSX if you are used to a torque-heavy V6 engine that offers up a hefty dose of power below 3000 rpm. Another quibble: Rear-seat legroom might be tight for some adults.

What's Significant About This Car?

The TSX sees only minor changes for 2007, most notably the addition of a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

Driving the TSX

Driving Impressions The TSX is powered by a 2.4-liter 16-valve engine producing 205 horsepower. You have your choice of either a six-speed manual or five-speed sequential-shift automatic transmission. Though quick, the TSX...

lacks the "pit of your stomach" punch only a six- or eight-cylinder engine can provide. You'll observe this when accelerating from a dead stop or when attempting a high-speed passing maneuver.

Driving the TSX with the six-speed manual is a pure joy. The car is so well balanced that it almost seems to slice through curves like a knife through whipped butter. The front-wheel-drive layout works well for the TSX, providing excellent traction while being nearly devoid of torque steer. Acura has equipped the TSX with a complex stability and traction control system known as Vehicle Stability Assist, or VSA. It's a nice feature that will provide you with peace of mind as you have fun with the TSX's nimble suspension.

Voice-Activated Navigation
Acura's voice-activated navigation is one of the best in the industry. Not only is it relatively simple to operate, you can vocally ask it to find landmarks, restaurants or gas stations.

Side-Mirror Turn Signals
Acura places the turn signals in the side mirrors. This allows traffic beside you to recognize your intent to change lanes.

Here is where the magic begins. The TSX's interior is clad in the finest materials, far superior to anything in its price range. Every switch moves as though Teflon-coated and every seam lines up precisely. The seats are wonderfully comfortable and supportive for sporty drives, the dash is handsomely adorned with wood or aluminum and soft-touch vinyl and the instrument panel puts on its own light show once the sun sets; it's all truly a work of art.

Exterior

Though some complain the TSX is rather basic in its execution, we think its sharp lines and clean appearance will stand the test of time better than some of the more trendy designs currently on the market. Build quality is beyond reproach, and the car is backed by a four-year/50,000-mile warranty.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

The TSX comes nicely equipped and includes a choice of six-speed manual transmission or five-speed SportShift automatic, four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes (ABS), traction control, Vehicle Stability Assist, 17-inch wheels, heated leather power seats (eight-way for driver, four-way for the passenger), power moonroof, automatic climate control, 360-watt Bose audio with in-dash six-disc changer, steering wheel-mounted controls for cruise and audio, front side-impact airbags, side-curtain airbags, xenon headlamps, fog lights, XM Satellite Radio, heated side mirrors, auto-dimming rearview mirror and remote entry.

Optional Equipment

The only option is the Acura Navigation System with Voice Recognition.

Under the Hood

The Acura 2.4-liter engine is marvelously silent and smooth. It delivers plenty of punch, though you'll have to rev it until the tachometer needle is well past the 3,000-rpm mark to make the most of the engine's power and torque.

2.4-liter in-line 4
205 horsepower @ 7000 rpm
164 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4500 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 22/30 (manual), 22/31 (automatic)

"Love everything about it. Excellent gas mileage, love all the standard features. Bought car used with only one owner. After 178K still runs like brand new. Great entry level luxury car. Excellent visibility, amazing trunk space but nice and compact."

"I purchased my 2005 Pearl White Acura TSX brand new in December 2004. I have approximately 172,000 miles on it and it has given me no problems at all!! I just purchased an SUV this month as a second car, but still drive my Acura regularly because I love it SO MUCH! I have only had to replace brakes, tires and the battery since I've owned this car. I did have to replace the motor in the passenger side door last year so that it would lock with the remote, but that was minor to me. I have to use Premium gas, but I get excellent gas mileage! I am emotionally invested in this car. My plan is to drive it until it gives out, which I hope will be around 300,000 miles or more! :-D"

"Owned a glacier blue TSX and just lost it Nov 5th in a frontal car wreck. It's trully 5 stars frontal accident safety. Got hit by someone head on; they were going 40mph and me 30mph. Amazing car!!! Will miss it forever, as they don't make TSX anymore. The new replacement is a mix of TSX and TL and made in the US. This car only needed oil change, tires and a battery replacement (from my kids leaving the lights on). For 9+ years, it served me amazingly, with luxury with enjoyment. RIP my glacier blue beauty!!! WILL BE MISSED!!!"

"I bought this new in 2006. It just turned nine years old and I can't think of a replacement. Even the new TSX and TLX don't feel as good to me as this one. Only one problem and this just a few weeks ago...gas pedal sensor replaced. About $500 repair, but this is the first repair other than one set of tires and one battery. The finish and interior are still like new, although I admit I'm a bit OCD about taking good care of things."

"Loves: this is the BEST used car I could have bought in my area for the BEST price. Stylish. Comfort (9/10- buttons are a little hard to reach while driving, heated seats sometimes get uncomfortable). Sunroof. I love this car enough to go out of my way to review it! Likes: radio quality (comes with xm but you have to pay for it), I still like the heated seats, great driving dynamics but this isn't a speed car either. Dislikes: suggested to use gas of 92 or higher. synthetic oil is preferred. If you want to preserve how nice this car is then you need to pay a few extra bucks to make it look and run smoothly. Oh, poor gas mileage through town too (At any given time I am normally averaging 22.5 mpg :( )"
