Hope the tsx wont have any tranny problems you think it might?Haris said:TSX is better. TL had transmission problems. Especially if your younger, you probably wouldn't want to spent $1500 to replace your transmission. Go for the TSX.
No, probably not. Only acuras that I've heard of having transmission problems was CL and TL. I think they even have same transmission. But only auto transmissions were not good in TL and CL. Not the 6 speeds.tsxclub said:Hope the tsx wont have any tranny problems you think it might?
LOTS of Hondas have auto tranny problems. I've seen many new/late model Accords sitting in the local dealer garage with the tranny yanked out of them.dmghent said:Just a note...my Mom's 2001 RL also had a tranny problem after about 20,000 miles, however it was fully warranteed and replaced without any hassle.
The standard TL (which competes with the Lexus ES300) is too soft a car to compare with the TSX. You'd have to drive the TYPE S version of the TL/CL to appreciate it. The TYPE S is also significantly faster than the base TL (260 vs 225 HP). Despite its advantages, the price gap between the TYPE S and the standard car is essentially negligible.sponge said:I drove both (not TL type S) and thought the TSX had a sportier feel, TL felt softer, although it did accelerate better. I like the styling of the TSX better. I didn't have to think real hard between the two though, because the TL did not have enough headroom for me (I'm 6'3").
the king of baseless comparisions.. which make zero sense is now telling other what can and can't be compared?!?!harddrivin1le said:The standard TL (which competes with the Lexus ES300) is too soft a car to compare with the TSX.
The TL Type S will BLOW THE DOORS off the TSX!Maurice said:I test drove both the TL Type-S and the TSX. The TL is a very nice car, but it felt somewhat bland and generic. The TSX was something totally different. I immediately was impressed with the tightness of the suspension, acceleration, and shifting. Interior was much more aesthetically pleasing. Beautiful dashboard, 360 watt eight speaker system, my body was glued to the front bucket seats in tight turns. It felt so much like a sports car.
For me, it was not a difficult choice. My TSX will arrive in mid-July.
The CL/TL type S have a LOT more TORQUE (232 LB-FT) than the TSX! And they make 30% more PEAK POWER, even though they're just ~ 8% heavier.Maurice said:I never said that the TSX could out accelerate the TL Type-S. 60 more horsepower is noticable, eventhough the TL weights 300 pounds more.
I only said that I was impressed, specifically on how linear the TSX accelerated. Probably due to the variable valve timing and the lift electronic control. At 2000 rpm, the engine is already 90% of it's torque(140 lbs-ft), peak torque is reached at 4600 (166 lbs-ft), and stays at that level until 7000, before beginning to drop at redline(7100)
