CanadianDriver.com article on 2004 Acura TSX 5-Speed Automatic
 Date: June 05, 2003 22:29
 Submitted by:  ivtec1

 Credibility Rating: N/A


From the article:

"If there is a fault with this engine, it is the fact that maximum torque is not reached until 4500 rpm - BMW's six cylinder engines and Audi's turbocharged four cylinder engines develop their maximum torque much earlier. The TSX's intelligent variable valve timing and lift control system helps compensate for this, but there is a period somewhere between 1500 rpm and 3000 rpm that the engine could use a little more punch."
