You are in the Acura TSX
What is this discussion about?
Acura TSX, Sedan
Nov 15, 2010 (2:31 pm)
It's actually my fathers, I'm in college so I get to drive it whenever I'm back. but oh boy, it's just so much fun to drive! really tight suspension and rock solid acceleration (esp for a 4 cylinder it's mindblowing). I can rip it around an onramp at over 45mph and there's still more room for speed, i just don't want to ruin the tire tread.
if you're teetering on the edge of purchasing this car, consider yourself tipped over to the side of PURCHASING THE ACURA TSX.

My pearl white 2006 went out of warranty in Nov, 2010 with just 29,000 miles. Took car in and, under warranty, had a new glove compartment put in and received a new battery. Otherwise, all has been great. Dealer service dept. did suggest, and I accepted, a trans flush for $200.00. Not so sure that was needed, tho'. Have to beware of curbs because of low front end. Otherwise, this has been a great car, is beautiful, and offers a very nice ride.

A new glove compartment? Someone was too zealous getting to the cabin filter?

I didn't know about a cabin filter, but I don't think that was the problem. The latch on the glove compartment has been problematic for 4 years, but the dealership wouldn't fix it 'unless it was broken.' Just before the warranty was up in November I stopped by the dealership at a time when the compartment absolutely would not open and had a service rep go outside to witness the problem. Voila! Permission for a new glove compartment. Persistence on my part was the only reason the dealership conceded to resolve the issue.

I have had the same problem with opening the glove compartment. I rarely use it so never thought to have it replaced. The warranty on my 06 tsx went out when the car was 18 months old (50,000 miles). I also bought my car new in November 06. It now has almost 118,000 problem free miles-love it.

I just can't imagine regular opening of the glove box would ever damage it in any way. It is very easy for a hurried unexperienced person damage it when trying to replace the cabin filter.

The car is a little over two years old now. It has around 9000 miles. It is fun to drive for long trips - or any trip. Very comfortable car. Best mpg has been 33.5. Just have to be careful with that low front end.

I considering a tsx wagon for utility, economy and fun to drive nature. I have a 2004 TSX that is still running strong; my son now has it at college. I have heard the wagon tends to be a bit underpowered. I'm not going to race it or anything, but I like a responsive car that can get out of its own way. Any tsx wagon owners out there care to comment?

The wagon is no more under powered than your 04 TSX. All of the performance numbers are almost the same - the wagon only has to carry around a bit more weight (120lbs). The only diff is a slightly lower hwy mileage due to it being less aerodynamic.
