#1 of 3 Honda Accord vs Acura TSX
Aug 26, 2009 (11:27 am)
I'm trying to decide between a Honda Accord Coupe EX-L w/Navi and an Acura TSX w/ Tech Package (auto trans in both cases).
I realize this is an Accord forum, but I'm hoping for some honest comments and suggestions, pros and cons, etc... anything that might make my decision easier.
Thanks in advance!

Did you ever get an answer? I'm interested in this too! I'm considering the Honda Accord EX-L 4-door sedan and the comparable Acura TSX with Tech package. As far as I can see, the only advantage to the Acura TSX is that great back-up camera. The Honda guy didn't mention that feature, so I assume it doesn't have it. Also, I think the Acura TSX 4-cylinder has enough oomph for me, while I need the V-6 in the Honda. I really like the fact that the Honda uses regular gas as I expect another rise in oil prices.

Both cars are great. You'll get a better initial factory warranty with an Acura. If it comes down to engine choice, Id opt for the Accord V6. The accord offers back up sensors as an option and takes regular gas. You're also looking at two different size vehicles. Which do you want? The TSX does get better MPG but thats all negated by the premium gas specified to run the car. Its a draw. ALG residual values should favor the Accord. The only tempting thing from the TSX for me would be the size of the car, and the HID lights. Also something to consider if you live in the middle of nowhere like I do is this? If you purchase an Acura and need warranty work or prefer having your vehicle dealership serviced, is an Acura dealership nearby? Im in that situation. No Acura dealership but there's a Honda one right down the road. Just things to consider and hope that helps!!!
