Not worth the upgrade or money. Road noise is they same as the Civic. Handling is like driving a tank; cabin space and storage seems smaller; seats are uncomfortable. 18K miles and the microphone has been replaced.
Anyone for a "normal" station wagon?
2012 Acura TSXRandall - Los Angeles, CA03/21/2015
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.
I call my car The Gypsy Pearl as it really is a beautiful pearl
It's a great car. It's easy to drive, has all the electronics anyone would want, is well built and a very good warranty. It is fully adjustable, has seat warmers, good GPS screen, excellent braking system and all the nice little extras like telling you when a tire is too low or you have a message from the company. I would buy another Acura with no hesitation!
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.
