Just Sat in 1

I am currently @ the dealership waiting for service so I wandered over to the 2009 TSX. It definitely looks much better in person. The grill is not nearly as offensive as some pictures might suggest. The interior materials do seem inferior to my 2004 but by no means cheap EXCEPT the door handles. The interior door handles are made of plastic ... rather thin plastic for the function it serves. I can see people breaking these handles easily when in a rush. I cannot believe Acura approved this.

Overall, it looks like a solid car for the $$$ & am not surprised that it sells. The salesman said that they could not keep them on the lot & they had 1 2008 left.

The 2009 RL is in the sun & it is much too hot for me to inspect right now.
