From the stuff that I have read online, they are planning on putting the turbo-rdx engine in there, and possible the sh-awd...that should have some nice power in there. I agree with all the stuff you want in there, but I would like to have some rear heated seats. The one thing that I hate is that in Canada, acura offers the CSX (civic with a few extra options) for the price that the TSX would be offered in the US...I bought a 2006 honda pilot EX AWD from the US, and saved over 13,000 after taxes. I'm going to be doing the same thing when i buy the TSX. Does anyone know where the new TSX will be made? If it's made in North America, then I don't have to pay duties on it, which is something I want to avoid if I can.

I thought the CSX was all the rage? Maybe acura will offer a Type-R... It looks just like a JDM civic.
Not sure when TSX is coming out. Maybe we'll see a TSX "concept" soon. Hopefully, it is a scaled to normal sports4 with the same looks.
I read other places about the turbo engine; Why do so many people detest the turbo !? Its slow in the 4,000lb RDX SUV with AWD but in a small, very aerodynamic(0.27), lightweight sedan i see no problem.
I just hope acura offers both engines with both transmissions and offer the same features in both cars. Still I am hoping they add a 6speed automanual for cruising.

There's no reason to believe production will be moved from its current production line in Japan.

The TSX in on my short list of new vehicles. I prefer to change oil and filter myself. On our 99 2.3 CL it was a minor pain, had to remove the left front wheel to reach in and remove the drain plug and filter, which was on the back side of the engine. I notice the TSX engine is flipped around relative to the CL. Does anyone on this board do their own oil changes, and can tell me where the filter is, and how hard is it to reach when not on a lift? Thanks.

Honda in general does not seem to take ease of maintenance into consideration when designing its cars. Most of its cars (and some of its bikes) have some of the most difficult to get to oil filters. Despite the difficulty of getting to the filter, I would not base my car buying decision on that (even tho I swear at Honda every time I change the oil filter in my Accord and ST1300).

I do my own oil changes. Its not the easiest filter to get to (that would be my old Subaru Legacy) but its not the worst either. I did buy a filter wrench to get a good grip on it. I just put the car up on ramps and reach up to get to it. I don't remove the wheel.

Well, my DH HATES changing the oil on the TSX, and has threatened to make me do it ... something about the plastic pan drives him crazy.
When he cleans the garage, I'll do my own maintenance.

The headlights are the best part of the TSX. Not only is the night vision amazing, but the interior bluelight is a godsend. Combined they make for the best night driving experience I've ever had.
And... I would never buy a car with red interior dashboard lighting.
Honda hit a homerun with this car.
The lights on this car would be a $3k option on BMW 3 or Audi A4. Neither of which have the reliability of Honda!
I can't wait for a Turbo TSX! That would blow the competition away! Although I do like the new BMW 3 Coupe.
The Lexus/Toyota IS is also gorgeous. Cant' wait for the new generation TSX hopefully for the 2008 model year.
Hopefully, they offer a TSX in Honda S2000 yellow!!!

s2000 yellow!! Hopefully not Saab green.... Look at the sports4 concept as a tsx preview. HoHonda'styling is coming up! The new accords looks great (like Ridgeline grille meets meats acura CL-s rear meets s2000 front end meets TL sharpness) IMO! -Cj

The next generation TSX is going to be a 2009 model.
