Acura TSX owners please help me with buying this car!! (includes auto trader link)

So I just wrecked my honda fit and was looking into acuras because I hear they are JUST as reliable and have much better performance. Anyways I am talking to a guy on the phone that had posted this TSX up for sale. (link is below)

Now here is what I must get out of this car.

-Last at least 5 years
-Be able to take 80 miles per day (almost all highway) with the occasional 400 mile road trip
-How much is insurance usually for these cars?
-I hear horror stories about acura transmissions would the tranny die on me with this many miles?
-How many miles could this car take on your guy's experience with these cars?
-Anything else I should ask this guy? What should I look at with this car when inspecting it that may be something I wouldn't notice?
-He says he has dealer paperwork because that's where he always took his car too should I trust him?

The tranny is on the TL with the V6 model...nothing on the TSX auto. However, you would need to put some $$ down first on the car. Like flush every fluid out, change the chain ten and timing chain and adjust the valve springs. Then you should be good for these cars can go more in terms of 200K plus.
