Whenever I pull out from a parking spot in reverse, stop, shift into drive, and pull away, I then hear a "clunk" come from what sounds like the rear of the car. It almost sounds like its coming from one side of the car, but I'm not sure which side.
If this only happens when the car is started, it is the ABS self check.

oohh. That's a pretty loud clunk for a self check. Thanks for the info.
#16 of 23 Performance mods available for the TSX?
Oct 29, 2003 (4:37 pm)
I am getting ready to purchase an '04 TSX but am less than thrilled with the 4 cylinder engine. Are there any aftermarket performance mods available like a turbo or chip set?
Oct 29, 2003 (5:21 pm)
If you don't like the 4-cyl's performance, I'd personally suggest getting another car. Mods are becoming available (mostly in the form of intakes) but there are no turbo chargers, super chargers, or "chips" that I know of. I actually think that, for now, the most signficant gain in performance will come from stickier tires and wheels that aren't as heavy.
But, at the end of the day, you could spend a lot of $ to get only a modest improvement in power.
I think you'd be better off spend more to get the TL, opting for a less expensive six cyl car (like the Mazda M6 or Honda Accord), or buying a vehicle that has some kind of forced induction (like an Audi A4 1.8T or Saab 9-3).
#18 of 23 17" silver star rims

On another note has anybody put the silver star rims into their cars??? This might be another option i go with?? How does it look and does it do anything drastic to the car's performance?, as i know they are a bit heavier than the ones the tsx comes with

I have 235/45/17's on the TSX, and the car is lowered with sport springs. NO issues in 1.5 years except that they are cheaper for some reason. Oh , and if you are lowered, they will rub the fenderwell if you hit a fair dip in the road.

Just wanted to see if there was anyone located in the Boston, MA area to do an A-SPEC suspension group buy. The regular price is $ 800 - I spoke with a guy in parts who said he could give a discount for a group buy.

#22 of 23 How good is the 210 HP V4 TSX 08 or 09 model?
Dec 20, 2009 (11:32 pm)
I am thinking about buying an 08 or a 09 certified TSX. How is the four cylinder engine as far as acceleration is concerned? I live in southern CA. Getting on the freeway and off the freeway. What should I offer for a certified TSX with nav out the door price? Let's say mileage is around 10,000- 20,000 miles.

can'tgive you advice on pricing-but the 08 is the last of generation 1 and 09 is the start of generation 2. (which means it has the first year problems) I own a 6MT 06 tsx-I do mostly highway (freeway as you call it) driving. I have been on 3 cross country road trips (including driving thru California-love the San Diego area) I have to say it its an extremely comfortable car with enough power. This is my opinion and it is also on a manual transmission tsx, The nav came in very handy. My now 3 year old car, bought new 11/06, has almost 96,000 problem free miles. Still on the original brakes and replaced the OEM Michelin tires at 74,000 miles
