2008 Acura TSX Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
A well-rounded package providing a good mix of performance, sportiness, and luxurious amenities, the Acura TSX, while not as exciting to drive as the best sports sedans, is agile and adequately roomy. The powertrain is very smooth and the four-cylinder engine provides good fuel economy. Intuitive controls and impressive fit and finish are positives, but the ride is a bit too firm for some.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Anonymous, OR (2008 Acura TSX)

"Very comfortable. The major surprise was the lack of automatic lights. It seems in a car from this manufacturer, that should be standard. Additionally, the controls for the fan are not intuitive, actually took me a few months before I figured them out/by accident."

Anonymous, MD (2008 Acura TSX)

"handles very well and seats very supportive even for long trips."

What Owners Say

"Bought used at good price"

Anonymous, WI (2008 Acura TSX)

Anonymous, VA (2008 Acura TSX)

What Owners Say

"In my opinion 2008 was the last model year the TSX looked good. The 2009 styling change was awful."

Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
