Best Sport Wagon available
Source: Edmunds

...As an 18 year Saab owner, I spent close to a year looking for a replacement to our '04 Saab Aero Wagon (w/manual trans).
I knew nothing about Acura prior to seeing a TSX Wagon drive by and thinking the exterior styling looked terrific.
One test drive and I was hooked. The car handles quite well.
As others have said, the 5 speed auto is average at best, but I have not had any major issue with it.
The cargo space is good, although smaller than the Saab, it is huge in comparison to the Cadillac CTS Wagon.
Bottom line, fully loaded it is $10 - $20K less than the Volvo...

Exceeded my expectations
Source: Edmunds

...Just picked up my silver tsx special edition automatic the other day, and it far exceeded my expectations.
This car is great! Rock solid build quality, and very comfotable and luxurious.
Ultra responsive steering, acceleration, and brakes.
This car really is a blast to drive. I really can't believe this car is so much fun to drive, and feels so tight, responsive, and powerful.
The interior and exterior additions of the special edition package really bring an already great car up to another level...

TL owner moving down but not by much...
Source: Edmunds

...I looked at BMW, Mercedes and Audi. However, I just couldn't justify the extra money. Everything cost EXTRA. I went back to Acura and they had a Milano Red Limited Edition loaded TSX on the showroom floor. I immediately fell in love with the looks and bought it on the spot. To me it is the most agressive looking Acura with the body kit. It just looks sexy and strong. Although I am giving up a lot of power vs. the TL, I am also getting about 6 miles a gallon farther down the road. In addition, I hardly ever found a time when I could 'drive' the TL agressively. At this point, I am not missing...

Love the Car...HATE Acura of Ocean NJ
Source: Edmunds

...The TSX is a very nice sized luxury car, but all is ruined by the terrible service at Acura of Ocean.
This New Jersey dealership does not care about its customers at all.
They are rude and difficult to work with. They do not listen to their customers and never fix things the first time.
Twenty four hours after a very expensive service, my car breaks down on the Garden State Parkway.
It had to be towed because of a dead battery, something Acura of Ocean was to have checked a mere day prior.
Acura of Ocean totally ruined buying and driving an Acura. I will NEVER buy...

Love my TSX "Special Edition"

..."Love it, so do others who see it for the first time. 32+ MPG around town.Love the Red stictching & the racing pedals, and paddle shifters. GOOD PURCHASE!"...

Great styling, value and lots of fun
Source: Edmunds

...After owning a 2011 Acura MDX for about a year - and loving it - I went out and bought this TSX as a commuter vehicle.
I guess you either like Acura styling or you don't - I happen to really like the unique and aggressive styling.
After reading some reviews, I wasn't expecting much from the 2.4 L, 4 cyl.
engine. I was pleasantly surprised when I test drove the TSX, however.
The engine is peppy and quite responsive. I have no problems merging on the freeway or passing - in fact, I really look forward to it.
The TSX handles great - I find myself searching for curves or...

2012 Acura TSX Tech Package
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: Very comfortable, solid handling, great back up camera with grid!
Controls are very functional /easy to reach. Navigation system adjusts for day/night viewing.
Good sound system. Spacious trunk - rear seats fold down for extra cargo space.
Cons: Turning radius could be a little tighter. Overall: Excellent car with great handling for those who like a sporty suspension and a touch of class Acura style!...

Love this car and the performance !

..."Great experience with purchase. Dealership and my sales rep, Martha Sheppard, were incredible.
Everyone was ready to assist with all my questions.
I was given a complete overview of all the equipment and options and how to use them.
Wonderful customer service at Fresno Acura in California. I will refer others. This car is wonderful, comfortable, responsive and really fun to drive."...

Try a Honda Accord Coupe before you purchase this.
Source: Cars.com

..."Had this car as rental. This car drives and rides pretty much like a loaded Honda Accord Coupe.
For the price of a TSX four cylinder you can get a loaded Accord Coupe V6 with more power and does not require premium gas.
Ride can be bumpy at times and road noise is average.
Handling is very good just like Accord Coupe. The only feature Accord Coupe does not have is the HID lamps and the Acura badge.
TSX is badged as Honda Accord or Honda Spirior in many other countries.
If you want a luxury name and performance spend a few thousand more and get a A4 Quattro or 3...

True Sports Sedan

...Natures calamities to Acura/Honda plants in the Pacific rim have caused a paucity of this model. We traded a 201-hp, 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder 2011 TSX (which is a beautiful piece of work and fun to drive) for this model. We also have a 2007 Acura TL, which we will continue to own as it has low mileage, its garaged nightly, and its aesthetics are more pleasing to us than the current model. We waited for a new TL exterior (a design which, being on the cutting edge, would take other manufacturers a few years again to replicate) but this new, Crystal Black Pearl with Ebony interior TSX is just...
