Have not had a single repair done in 20K miles. see full Acura TSX review
2010 4dr Sedan 201-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed manual FWD
The build quality of the Acura is impressive. Materials and interior styling are not necessary luxurious, but solid and feel pleasant to the touch. The historical quality of a 4 cyl/ 6 speed manual Honda should be top notch. see full Acura TSX review
2010 4dr Sedan 201-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
A total of more than 33000 miles with this car and the only issue of note is a minor rattle that came up that I isolated to the dash gauge cluster cover. My local dealership took care of this under warranty and haven't had any further issues. The engine is a thing of beauty; just give it regular oil and filter changes. see full Acura TSX review
