Default Reliability of Acura TSX vs Honda Civic?

I have an opportunity to get the car I want(Acura TSX 2004) or a decent gas saver (honda civic 2003)

I know the TSX will cost me about 400 a year more in gas than the civic, im prepared for that. But Im not sure about maintenance. The accura is technically a honda so will it still be able to go that 300k miles the civic would as long as I take care of it? Things all line up and sound badass. But how would the long term factor for the TSX vary from the civic?

The 04 was the 1st model year for the 1st generation tsx. It had the 1st year problems such as the ac not working.Look up either the tsx club or acurazine website. It is discussed there.There was a class action lawsuit because of this problem. I owned a 05 Honda civic, which had lots of problems, luckily fixed under warranty. Traded it at 36,000+miles after the warranty ended. Bought a 06 tsx. It now has 157,000+ problem free miles. Love it.

we have a 2004 TSX with NO fact it's 8 yrs old and has had NOTHING replaced except oil and the cruise button.

we have a 2002 RSX-S thats 12 yrs old and has had only the stereo, and oil replaced. I don't count the one belt and the front brakes, cause after 12 yrs it was a wear issue.
