  • A/C compressor hose (rubbed on fan and cut hole into it) & desiccant
  • Front Passenger Lower Ball Joint
  • Starter
  • Temperature Control Switch (located under radiator)
  • 3 our of 4 ignition coils

I have 193k on my 04 now, but I had to also redo the trans for the same reason at 153k. Final drive teeth missing. It's a rare issue.
I ended up replacing both my axles while trying to troubleshoot it.
Front bearings have been done and all 4 shocks were replaced preemtively.
Serpentine belt. Front calipers. Brake Master cylinder. 1 HID bulb. That is basically it.

Had this issue with my 08 RDX and I just replaced the visor with new one eBay. My floppy visor was caused by southwest heat degrading the plastic parts over time and flipping it up/down to block the sun wore it out faster compared to the passenger side.

217K on my '04 6MT model:

156K Driver side seat buckle replaced which got rid of SRS code
185K replaced right front axle
209K PS return line crack replaced line
217K ignition coil in cylinder 3 failure and replacement
217K (current mileage in garage) oil leak tbd - seems to be front main seal area - I'm working on it.
(and new front and rear calipers... I think p.o. service shop did not replace brake fluid ever as preemptive maintenance.)
(serpentine belt, iridium plugs, valves adjusted, coolant, clutch, trans, brake fluids all replaced - I consider that maintenance not repair)

This car is amazing. But sadly I can't really drive it anymore after breaking my left ankle and needing surgery so I have to sell it next
This was best friend's car for 6+ years and his favorite of 35 cars he's ever owned. He's complained that there is no TSX replacement.

140k+ tsx here. Ehm not the first owner but my aunt was the first owner, the car had some warranty repairs like the power steering leak. Right now the gps is not working along with many of hte interior trim but its because my cousin treated the car like junk and even abandoned it . So far according to a mechanic the lower control arm bushing is cracked and should be of concern as the car vibrates quite a bit when accelerating slowly and breaking at slow speeds and right now the alternator seems to be bad (just posted in another thread to see if someone knows if it is not the alternator). So far an excellent car for the mileage, I used to own a 2007 jeep and that thing had many many many more major repairs than this car and this car has a lot more miles in it .

I have a 2005 Acura Tsx with an automatic transmission. I am the original owner. Compared to others on this board, my car is still a baby. I am at 157,500 miles. Original engine and transmission. Have replaced the alternator and starter. When both of these parts went bad on two separate occasions years apart, I got warnings to replace them. The alternator battery light turned on in my dashboard and I was able to drive it to my mechanic to change the alternator. Several years later, the starter was weak. Difficulty starting the car when cold. I again drove the car to mechanic and he replaced part.

This amazing car has never left me stranded in 13 plus years of driving it. I have never had to call a tow truck. I am not giving it up for anything in the world.

I'm at around 110,000 miles on my '06 6-speed. It's needed nothing so far, although I have flushed the coolant and changed the manual gear oil. Changing the gear oil made the smooth shifting even smoother.

Recently I had issues with the nav screen, but that turned out to be due to a broken power wire connected to the DVD player in the trunk. A minor repair.

Car is just now on the 3rd set of tires.

Oh, 1 minor issue still not repaired is there is damage to the plastic housing of the emergency brake line. Water can infiltrate into this and then freeze, causing the parking brake to remain engaged even after releasing the brake. Only an issue during freezing temperatures when I forget to release the brake before it freezes.

Sold my 2006 with 176k on it. Still ran great but, wanted something with all wheel drive.
Was a great car. Don't see as many on the road.

2005 6MT with 182,000 miles! The clutch is slipping all over the place. I've replaced the starter, one HID lamp, 3 door actuators, 3 sets of tires, 3 batteries, 3 sets of front brakes, 2 sets of rear brakes, one navigation DVD. I also feed the engine one quart of oil every month

Up to 136,000 miles now. Pretty much zero issues up to 100k; but, since then:
- kid had an accident 2015 causing $7,000 worth of damage to hood, fenders, bumper, and A/C condenser, repaired
- alternator
- battery (2nd interstate)
- power steering pump
- tires (2nd set of Conti DWS)
- passenger side upper control arm
- HT front/rear camber kit

Everything works perfectly and still doesn't use a drop of oil between changes. The TSX still looks, drives, and handles like she has 100,000 less miles. Almost due for some brake pads is the only thing I need to do for her for now.
An Update to my Update at +150,000:
- replaced small black hose to radiator overflow tank because it was sucking in air and the air pockets in the system was causing the cabin heater to work intermittently
- power steering rack replaced (new rack from Amazon, local shop install, $500)
- A/C compressor replaced (new from eBay, local shop install, $750)
- someone ran into the rear passenger quarter panel at the kid's college in student housing (just a long scrape on plastic bumper part only)

Hi all. I'm new to this forum, and as an Acura owner. I bought a 2006 TSX last weekend and figured I'd join this forum to learn and hopefully get some questions answered!
The car has 204,000 miles. Owned by a woman before me, she did a pretty solid job taking care of the car. She showed up with a file containing receipts and everything, which made me feel good about my purchase.

Before I bought the car, it had the following repairs made:
  • New power steering pump
  • New rack and pinion
  • New radiator and fan
Since I've owned the car, I had to have the following repairs made:
  • New condensor
  • New expansion valve
  • New front grille
The big remaining problem is that I need to repair the nav screen. I've been reading on the forums and it would seem that navigation player in the trunk is to blame? My nav screen works, but is black. Going to see how much that costs to replace.

Also, as I was under the hood, I noticed my belt tensioner was making a little bit of noise. I took a video to show... thoughts?
