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.
