It's definitely unique, you don't see many of them! Very sharp looking.

Likely has potential for VCT start up rattle and oil burning issues just like all K24Z motors. As long as it has been maintained well and seems to be in good condition I'd go for it. Those are sharp looking wagons.

I like them! The TSX is wagon is awesome happy

Wagons are the greatest body style, and Honda makes great cars smile

The thing I like about that particular one, is in white it looks VERY classy.
So much, that on quick glance I'd think it was an equivalent aged MB wagon - but more reliable and fuel efficient.

Just wish they offered them north of the border frown

Been trying to get the wife to agree to one to replace her Accord, but she wants a CRV instead. Still going to keep trying though, I think they're a good looking car.

I'm a long roof man, but that model looks a little under-powered to me. Was there another engine choice for that year?

I too have always liked the looks of the TSX wagons. Like said, you don't see many of the road.

Saw one last year in a well heeled neighborhood and really liked it.

Decided against it because we needed a more utilitarian "3rd vehicle".

Acura discontinued the wagon because the take rate was too low. it is a nice vehicle.

I had an 09 TSX sedan with the 6spd. Only thing to really watch out for is oil consumption. Acura rolled out a TSB a few years ago willing to do tests to see if your motor qualified. Value on these have really tanked since Honda/Acura killed the TSX/TL in favor of the TLX.

Always wanted a TSX wagon with the V6, but alas, no. Throw on a modulo front bumper and they look pretty sweet. Go all out and put on a Mugen front bumper if you have the funds/mod bug/like to stand out. The 2nd gen TSX K24Z3 doesn't get much love (fake vtec) here in NA, but they have quite a tuner's following in Europe.

I've owned a Legend, an RL and a TL. The TSX wagon is nice all around, but $14,000 for an 8 year old one is too much. Try to find a private seller, not a dealer.

I absolutely loved ours. We put about 60k on it and sold it. It's one of a handful of cars that I regret selling.

My wife didn't like it because it was too low to the ground for her. She also would hit stuff with it because...well....ahem.

I think about that car all the time.
