Model Highlights

The 2007 TSX is the Acura for those folks looking for something bigger than an RSX, but not as large as a TL. It could be considered the sweet spot in the Acura passenger car lineup.

It uses a 2.4L engine to drive the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission or a five-speed automatic. Thanks to double-overhead camshafts, four-valves-per-cylinder and adjustable VTEC camshaft timing, this four-cylinder engine makes a potent 205 horsepower and a respectable 164 lb-ft of torque. There is a goodly amount of low-end torque and a rip-snorting top-end rush, that makes this powerplant feel larger than it actually is.

Our tester had the manual transmission, and it suits the character of this car perfectly. The throw is short and the action is remarkably direct for a front-wheel drive vehicle. The TSX's four-wheel disc brakes offer wonderful stopping power, and the ABS circuitry come in handy when gravel or other road debris appears mid-corner. With both standard traction control and vehicle stability assist, the TSX swung through every corner with precision. In fact, it felt downright tossable.

The TSX cockpit is a showcase for Acura. The DVD-based optional navigation system is not only one the easiest to use on the market (with or without the voice recognition), it is also one of the best integrated. The leather steering wheel is the perfect size and it holds both audio and cruise controls. The 360-watt sound system is terrific as well. Every TSX comes with front, side and curtain airbags. There is also a remote keyless entry system is very handy.

Model News

The Acura TSX continues largely unchanged for 2007. It offers many of the latest safety features as standard equipment, including a tire pressure monitoring system that was added for 2007.

Value Writeup

Acura did a marvelous job of blending a fun-to-drive vehicle with a practical compact sedan for their entry-level 2007 TSX. Its wide grille and modern headlights provide a distinct look that is consistent with Acura's design motifs. The TSX's low base price belies its well-equipped nature, with such standard features as xenon headlights, heated exterior mirrors, XM satellite radio, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Potential Number of Units Affected

Honda is recalling certain model year 2004-2008 Acura TSX vehicles originally sold in, or currently registered in, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. In states that use corrosive materials for deicing, driver's footwear may bring in materials that saturate the vehicle's carpeting, which is in contact with the vehicle's engine Electronic Control Unit (ECU). As a result, the ECU case may experience rust or corrosion. This damage may potentially cause the engine to stall.

A vehicle stall increases the risk of a crash.

Honda will notify owners and Acura dealers will inspect the vehicle and replace any damaged ECU, free of charge. All vehicles will have a waterproof cover installed onto the ECU, free of charge. The recall began during April 2013. Owners may contact Acura Client Relations at 1-800-382-2238 and select option 4 or go to www.recalls.acura.com.

Honda's recall campaign numbers are S86. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
