Default TSX vs........?

I have always liked the TSX. With that sweet Nav system in it.Is there anything as good, for the same 30,000?Volvo s40 not as good.not a huge BMW fan. anything?it seems like you cannot find a used txs. a 1 or 2 year old used tsx is the same price as a brand new one

the TSX is WAY overrated. Its really underpowered for the price. I would go for an infiniti G35 hands down (looks better and way better performance IMO)

The TSX is a damn nice car, but I agree with some that it's underpowered.If you really like Acura, look at the TL.

Not impressed with anything out of Japan, too many toys and for some reason, the cars looks like worn out after a few years. As far nav system. My brother has a TL and the voice activated / nav stuff on it. Is nice to have but is not a must have. Most of the time I know where I am at. I have done lots of road trips without a map, just following road signs. A Garmin, DeLorme or other GPS receiver are nice, compact, can be installed on your next car and cheaper. This types of nav systems are better suited for Flight or Sea, most ground nav are pretty easy.A gadget like that will not determine my reason for purchase.

i am the proud owner of a 06 Milano red/ebony 6speed tsx with nav, bought new 11/17/06. it now has 30,000+ miles, gets excellent gas mileage, has more than enough power for me and cost less than $30,000. I would recommend it. The g-35 is a good car with probably more power and a higher price tag to go along with it. If you want to go that route check out the Lexus i-250 or the Mazda-speed 6. try out the ford fusion, pontiac gto, new honda accord, so many to choose from

TSX is a four cylinder, so I would compare it with the Camry LE 4 cyl. Add the Nav if U want, For just a little more get the LEXUS IS250 it has a 6 cyl. Or find an older Lexus IS300 with a nav and all the options for $20k and Under.

Take a look at the 08 4 cylinder Accord EX-L. It's a better car then the TSX and you'll save $5K.

I own a TL and I looked into the TSX a few years ago - I agree with you it is underpowered. I was reading an article about the new Accord the V6 is a 3.5L w/ 268hp, just like the V6 Camry. I was fairly impressed. I don't know how they "ride" in comparrison to the TSX, but the price is better and they have more power.Don't listen to those folks wanting you to buy American - those new domestics look good now, but we'll see how they do in a few years - even if they are still running they won't have much resale value.
