Just got her a week ago. 2006 with 174k miles on it. No idea why but aparently the previous owner put in a DC5 5speed in it and the driver axle was busted. Just replaced both axles but there is a vibration as it speed up (only on acceleration and not while coasting or breaking) so I’m trying to diagnose that now and fix it.

I was having the same issue. If you replaced the axles with aftermarket, they may be bad. There is a strange problem with our generation TSX being that all aftermarket axles seem to have vibration issues. I replaced both of my axles with aftermarkets to fix a 60mph vibration i had about a year ago, the new axles fixed the highway vibration but a new 20-25 mph vibration started. I was diagnosing the problem for a while but turns out most aftermarket axles are too short, built poorly, not to factory spec, etc. I finally broke down about a week ago and bought a new OEM factory right (passenger) axle from honda ($450, ouch) and it fixed my 20-25 mph vibration for the most part. It still vibrates a little bit but i think its because i waited too long to fix it and it damaged the intermediate shaft. Next time you drive the car, see if it vibrates from 20-25, if so, the only way to fix it is probably to buy an OEM passenger axle. your left should be fine. Do a google search of (20-25 mph vibration acura tsx) you should find many threads about it. Its a horrible problem with our TSX's and has troubled a lot of people. Also acura seems to have a monopoly on their axles lol they're so damn expensive. good luck and keep us updated! sorry this post is so long, I would like to help people out because the vibrating axles has almost made me want to sell my car. even after fixing my 20-25 mph vibration, now my car has ANOTHER 60mph vibration, so now trying to fix that lol
