My 06 RSX just turned 150,000 miles and I'm starting to realize it won't last for ever. I just had my car in for service and got a new TSX loaner and really like the car. Just here trying to get some more info on it.

Thanks

Oh man, you're right in my wheelhouse. I had a 2005 RSX Type-S (Blaze Orange, in case you were wondering). I missed that car every day since life's responsibilities forced me to give it up for something bigger. That car was the total package for me... great-looking, great handling, nice power, hatchback flexibility.

I opted for the 6-speed TSX and I can honestly say it has almost completely alleviated my longing for the RSX. I'll always have a place in my heart for the RSX, but the TSX does a great job of capturing the driving experience with the added benefit of two extra doors and a usable back seat.

Thats exactly what I was hoping to hear.

My RSX is a base 5spd stick and any car I buy will have a stick. I drove many cars before I chose my RSX and for the money I couldn't find a better clutch/gear shift setup at the time.

The 6spd TSX should be perfect form me and the extra doors would be great.

Thanks Guys

GET AN 06'!! if you want to tune :) or you can spend a butt load on harness adapters, sensors & an 06' ecu :) I've got an 08' and I regret it... could have been 1.5k to modz.... :(

i got a base RSX and a TSX, all i can say is that i beat the shit out of my RSX because of gas price. the TSX is for when i know i will be having more than 4 passengers, im trying to keep her cool down because of all the mileage i have stressed her for these past years. :)

but as far as gas mileage goes, the TSX isnt much different than RSX, only 2-3 mpg less compared to RSX

I think it's time to upgrade.
