This is a process of elimination. If someone is looking for a vehicle with the interior capacity of a wagon or SUV but doesn't need 4wd or the butch styling of a SUV or cross-over, choices are sparse. The are virtually no "regular" Euro wagons under $40K being made today (2015) with the exception of the VW Golf Sportwagen. Even used BMW, Audi, Mercedes, etc., wagons are north of $30K and extremely rare. So, if one wants a reliable regular wagon under $30k, with decent gas mileage, either new or slightly used, the clear choice seems to be the TSX Sportwagon...assuming one can be found. The choices available in other parts of the world are vastly better (Mazda 6 diesel wagon come to mind) but alas, we are in a country in love with SUVs.
2007 Acura TSXRobb - Atlanta, GA06/02/2010
This is a super car for the dollar. I picked up mine used for about half of retail, and it was a terrific value.
I like the fact that it's pretty loaded, yet easy to use and operate. No fancy stuff that you have to read the owners manual to figure out (except the Bluetooth, of course). Heated seats are great, as is the steering wheel controls for the nice and good sounding standard stereo. In fact, the only option available on this car is NAV.
Great on gas, very peppy 4 cylinder engine. If it had Daytime running lights, a tire pressure monitor, and power tilt/telescoping wheel with memory, it would be absolutely perfect.
I love my TSX!

I love my car! The TSX has the right amount of luxury features, great fuel economy, and outstanding reliability. I drove my previous TSX to 171k miles with only one repair before it was totaled. I went right back to the Acura TSX and I intend to drive this one even farther.
