The most important thing others should know about my car is the safety features built in.

I love my Acura TSX because of how comfortable everything is, from the actual seats to the spacious interior. I love the features it's equipped with, like the navigation system and electronic display dashboard. The commodity of the Acura is amazing and I love the actual body of the car. It has such a luxurious look and feel to it.

Even though it is a 2009 model, the exterior style looks like a newer model.

Oil change is not every 5000 as promised, instead every 3000 miles or 3 months, whichever comes first. Comfortable seating. I do not like the hump on the floor on the back seating area. Great sound system. Soft leather seating. I carry 2 kids with car seats and they fit comfortably. The trunk space could be bigger.

Fast and smooth lily flower.

My car has sunroof, heated seats, manual shift, GPS, and all wheel drive. The car drives smooth and very little maintenance, but if it does it is affordable, I would buy this car again if I was asked what car would you buy. The price is not bad and insurance is not high.
