#3673 of 5064 2008 Acura TSX w/ navi Idle's a little shaky???
May 01, 2008 (5:22 am)
Yesterday I picked up my new Acura, I'm a little concerned, it's a bit shaky when it idles (much more then my 1998 Civic I just traded in). The salesmen said they're all like that, but it only does that when it's standing still (stupid response). Aside from that I love it, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem? Will this go away after it's broken in a bit???
Also, it's a little bit of a rough ride in the city. Tire pressure is currently 38-39, should I lower this to 32 or so?

First, yes your tire pressure is pretty high - mine are at 32-33. See if that helps.
Second, I've had my Acura for two months and I would say the shaking is NOT normal - at least I haven't experienced any shaking at idle. The salesman is there to soothe you - have the service department look at it, or ask if you can sit in their other Acuras, start them, and see if "they all do that". - Be sure to have your salesman take you around, if you decide to do that!

My 06 6MT does not shake when it idles-your tire pressure is too high-lower it-
My tsx ,bought new 11/17/06, has almost 45,000 problem-free miles- love it.
#3676 of 5064 2009 TSX Purchases?

Has anyone purchased a 2009 for under MSRP yet? Have you seen more than one or two 2009s on the dealer lots yet?

Ok, I'm now yet another official owner of the '08 TSX base model, arctic blue/quartz. $25,100 plus tax/fees, $27480 OTD. I'm in the SF bay area.
While I'm happy about the price, it seems that the 0.9% APR deal is gone. The dealer offers me 4.25% APR and says it is the lowest they can offer.

I live in the Bay Area and I was wondering where did you get that price?

Though the price is excellent - the financing is not - Acura has to move 2008', so there is marketing support across the board. This is the first time that this has happened (AFAIK) in the history of TSX, but without decent APR, the deal is not more attractive than before.

Huh? The TSX has had all kinds of rebates and deals in the past - strangely enough it has fewer deals now when it's going out than say, last year when there was cash back.

I don't understand either...the new 2009 TSX is basically an accord, and a comparable accord is cheaper than the old 2008 TSX. What is Acura thinking?
