2011 Acura TSX Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
This TSX delivers enough sportiness to be enjoyable while maintaining solid credentials as a well-rounded and capable car. An economical four-cylinder engine delivers responsive performance, the front seats are excellent and the interior is well appointed. But in some ways the TSX feels ordinary. The ride is nervous and handling, though agile, is let down by steering that is short on feedback.

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.

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"very good acceleration and precise handling"

Anonymous, NJ (2011 Acura TSX)

"handling is good, acceleration fair"

Anonymous, PA (2011 Acura TSX)

"Not great acceleration"

Anonymous, PA (2011 Acura TSX)

"The way this car accelerates (when needed) and handles (all the time) are the primary reasons we drive Acura. Tried Honda, just not the same. Have driven Lexus, but it drove like a tugboat, albeit a quiet boat. Camry is simply a bowl of vanilla ice cream in a sundae shop."

Michael B., IN (2011 Acura TSX)

"The handing is very secure. The acceleration is solid/good and the brakes are effective and straight."

Anonymous, DC (2011 Acura TSX)

"after 110000 miles it still has excellent acceleration and smooth cruising ride"

Gregory N., CT (2011 Acura TSX)

"Acceleration is not as crisp as I would like (4 cycl engine gets it down but sounds like it is struggling). Handling is solid."

Anonymous, ME (2011 Acura TSX)

"Acceleration is decent but not great. Handling is crisp and predictable"

John H., MA (2011 Acura TSX)

"Very quick acceleration, great handling."

Gonzalo G., CA (2011 Acura TSX)

Anonymous, NC (2011 Acura TSX)

Anonymous, NJ (2011 Acura TSX)

"Overall solid, a bit more road noise than I would like. Seats are comfortable and supportive. Ride is a good blend of comfort and sportiness."

Anonymous, ME (2011 Acura TSX)

"Seats took some getting used to due to firmness and bolstering."

Anonymous, MA (2011 Acura TSX)

"Easy to move seats, sun roof, hatchback, sunroof"

Anonymous, NC (2011 Acura TSX)

"Seats are very comfortable don't mind long rides ride very smooth, turns beautifully fun to drive"

Anonymous, FL (2011 Acura TSX)

"It's loud (lots of road noise), the top gear isn't "tall" enough so the engine makes a lot of noise at highway speeds. The leather (there's not much actual leather) seats feel cheap."

TIMOTHY A., KY (2011 Acura TSX)

"Seats"

Anonymous, MD (2011 Acura TSX)

"Seat heaters didn't work and couldn't be fixed."

Anonymous, NY (2011 Acura TSX)

"We measure the length of car seats in the showroom. Longer seats (21" or more) means less sciatic nerve pain when driving long distances. Acura/Honda have front seats that are longer than most other manufacturers that we've test-driven."

Anonymous, NC (2011 Acura TSX)
