Does TSX have transmission problems like Accord and TL?
Hi all. I'm in the market for a sporty sedan and I've spent a lot of time researching various models. I decided to abandon a number of candidate models from Honda/Acura due to their long track record of bad transmissions (Honda has finally abandoned their auto transmission design in favour of CVT with the 2013 Accord, after 15 years of problems starting with 1998 Accord).
My question: does the Gen 1 TSX (04 to 08) share the same transmission as the Accord (either AT or MT)? It appears not, but despite considerable searching I have not been able to confirm precisely what the differences are between the TSX and Accord in terms of powertrain, or more generally.
Having read so many horror stories of Accord/TL/Odyssey transmission failures, I'm determined not to be another victim!
Any information and relevant links explaining this would be much appreciated. If the TSX does not have a "glass tranny" then I just might have found the perfect candidate!
