info inacurate? [View News Item]    (Score: 1, Normal) 10-03-2007 15:27

Where is the info regarding the specs coming from? The RDX motor only has 240 hp, not 260. The 2008 Accord is already out and doesn't have a diesel engine. We (Acura dealers)have also already been told that the current 2008 TSX production will end this spring. The article states that 2009 TSX production won't begin until the end of 2008.

Not a big deal, but seems some items are a little inacurate.

Yeah, besides some typos that were corrected, I simply quoted the info that was attached with the photos. I will put a bit of commentary to clear up things (the way we understand them) a bit.

Ok. I just didn't know if that came from Brenda or if it came from another source. I can see how they can take the pictures, but how does a spy photography company find out what engines will be offered?

as Brenda explained it, they talk to some industry analysts. Which makes me wonder how the analysts came to some of these conclusions.

Sounds perfectly logical. Acura needs to offer something along the lines of choices. Currently, only the TL offers something with an engine choice and sportier handling. This would be great for the crowd that wants a TSX but doesn't want their mothers TSX. It has been no secret that the TSX was coming with AWD and turbo 4. I think it's great to see a Type-s TSX, something that should have happened 2 yrs ago. I owned a TSX and was completely happy with the product, but seemed underwhelmed with the power. If we can have a 260-270 lbs ft of torque in a TSX, that is exactly what the big knock on the current TSX is. I for one can't wait to start selling these when they hit our lots. We're just about 6-8 months behind on this one, so hopefully Acura takes this over the top with the same ride and handling characteristics that made the TSX C/Ds best sports sedan 3 yrs in a row. Bring it on, just bring it on yesterday.
