#4059 of 5064 2007 TSX with Navigation
May 26, 2009 (1:52 pm)
I looking to buy a 2007 TSX in the Wash DC area. The car as 25K miles and Navigation, and is NOT certified. I looked at the carfax, and it had one owner for 1.5 years as a lease and was in no accidents. The dealer is asking $26,600 out the door price (incl, tax tags and additional fees).
I would appreciate any feedback on what others paying for similar TSX's?
Also, I am a bit concerned that the car is NOT certified by Acura - should I be though?

Hey guys, went to the dealer yesterday and checked out the new TSXs. They are offering me a 09 grigio/ebony + tech for $30,000 + TTL. You guys think i should pull the trigger or try for more?

Bluejetta, $26600 for a TSX with 25k miles sounds like an outrageous rip-off. A brand new non-nav TSX goes for around $27.2k before taxes/tags. Drive that off the lot then back on, and try to sell it back to the dealer, and I'd be surprised if he'd offer you $20k.
On a different topic, while different people have different feelings about this, in my experience aftermarket nav systems (eg the Garmin Nuvi) will work better, have better user interfaces, be portable, and cost several thousand dollars less than any manufacturer-supplied navigation system.

You are right, Peterb12...
Bluejetta...if you check KBB and suggested retail value is less than $24K and trade-in for it is less than $19K. So $26K for it is way high...and it's not even certified!
#4063 of 5064 Is this a good deal

I got an offer from a Southern California area Acura dealer for a 2009 TSX w/Tech for $29,020 including destination fee, OTD price is $31,903 when including reg/fee/tax. Is this a good deal?
#4064 of 5064 Test Drive
May 28, 2009 (9:40 pm)
I test drove the 2009 TSX with auto and found the car does not have much pick up. Flooring the accelerator at highway speed does not seem to do very much and the tranny didn't even down-shift either. Is this a common experience with you guys as well. This was the one and only reason why I didn't pull the trigger on the great deal last night.

The engine is tuned to provide torque at or above about 3500 rpm. This means that it can feel unresponsive if you're cruising. In that situation, I'd downshift first, then stomp on the accelerator, and I would expect significant pickup.
Maybe try the 6-speed manual?
#4066 of 5064 6-cylinder engine in TSX
May 30, 2009 (7:33 pm)
I had a chance to check out an Acura TL with the V6 under the hood and am I glad I didn't wait for the V6 for the TSX. The V6 in the TL looks so cramp, there was hardly any space to reach the aft side of the engine to service the plugs. In retro-respect, the 4 cylinder in the TSX looks like perfect size for the engine compartment. The performance for the I-4 TSX is actually not too bad once you learn how to work it with the transmission. I like my I-4 TSX very much.

I like my I-4 TSX very much.
You and me both. I'll have 20K miles on mine in a couple of weeks, and it's been fine.
The only new engine I'm interested in is the diesel, which is apparently no longer slated to come to the U.S.

They should do better than that, I bought a 09 TSX auto with tech package yesterday for $29,000 (including destination) + TTL in SF Bay Area.
