I've owned by '09 Acura TSX for about 6 weeks and love it. The car looks great. Mine is white with perforated tan leather interior, which is a great combination for Charlotte's climate. The body style is the same as the current '12 model. My TSX replaces an '06 Nissan Altima 2.5 S, which I gave to my 18-yr-old son. The TSX is very fun to drive and definitely quicker than the Altima. It has a firm, but not harsh, ride that is preferred by most drivers of performance sedans. It has paddle shifters, but I haven't used them. The car is not huge, but the backseat is big enough for my teenage sons to ride in for short trips without complaining. I give it 5 stars in all categories except "Comfort" (but still give it 4 stars for Comfort) because this car hedges more towards sporty than it does to luxury, but it's still very comfortable to drive and ride in. My car has the tech package, which I recommend. The GPS is easy to use and the stereo sounds incredible with 5.1 surround sound. I'm pleasantly surprised by the gas mileage I'm getting with this car. I have a 12-mile commute each way to work from the south suburbs of Charlotte into the city in mostly stop and go traffic and I'm able to go 3 weeks between fill-ups, which is definitely better mileage than I got in the Altima. I recommend the Acura TSX without reservation.

I love driving this car. It handles the curves of the north Georgia mountains so well. I feel like the drivers seat is made for me , it's so comfortable. The tech package is absolutely wonderful and it's a must have. And I love the stereo with all that surround sound and my iPod is plugged in and out of sight.
Luxury cars come in all shapes and sizes, but they are all expected to look good and perform well. One advantage of buying a used luxury car is that you get the luxury look-and-feel that you want at a more affordable price.
The Acura MDX, which entered the market in 2001, was designed to address the need for a high-performance people-mover with an abundance of luxury features. Although the MDX replaced Acura’s SLX, its build was actually based on the popular Honda Pilot. In true Acura style, this newly-developed SUV was infused with the highest-quality comfort and performance features available.
If you’re conducting used car research to find a deal on pre-owned luxury vehicles, it only makes sense to learn about the Acura TL—a car with touring luxury actually built into its name. The Acura TL is a mid-sized luxury car that succeeded the Acura Vigor and was produced between 1996 and 2014. While the first-generation Acura TL (1996 to 1998) was manufactured in Japan, production soon shifted to the Honda plant in Marysville, Ohio.
