2009 Acura TSX - A Detroit News Review    (Score: 1, Normal) 07-23-2008 04:32

Hi Guys!! :o)

Click on http://www.detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080723/OPINION03/807230305/1149 to read a Detroit News review of the 2009 Acura TSX.

And I quote....

"Clean, powerful looks.

And the [TSX] is a looker.

Unlike the more sedate first generation, the new sports sedan has a much meaner look, adopting the new chunkier (pudgier?) face of Acura. The new look starts with the solid grille that almost resembles the leading edge of a guillotine blade. The big air intakes below the bumper are book ended with round fog lamps, and everything on the front end looks powerful. If one comes up behind you, you'll think there's a V-8 under its hood."

In matters of attractiveness, it's all so subjective, isn't it? However, having seen one, I agree with the reviewer.

Not only did he mess up with the push button start bit, but he also said it had a Direct Injection Engine. This reviewer is a joke. My son could give a beter review then this guy.

I made that mistake at first though, the Honda press kit said "direct ignition" as in coil packs on each plug, but I read it as direct injection and got all excited.

But push button start?

All in all, I'm surprised by what's a pretty positive review from Detroit. Seems like they wanted something more Buick-y. But who doesn't? I prefer to steer at least 15 degrees before my car starts to move sideways!

If you have ever lived or travelled in Detroit, you wouldn't be surprised by the need for buick-like suspension. Gravel roads would be better than some of the streets I've travelled through.
