The problems I could list... the most memorable ones were the time a coolant manifold located at the back of the (non-transverse!) engine started leaking when I was 100 miles from the nearest paved road somewhere in the middle of the Wyoming mountains, or the time that a tie-rod end decided to give out in northern Wisconsin, or the time that the rubber in the harmonic balancer disintegrated and I ran metal-on-metal for my pulleys for about 20 miles to limp it to a mechanic, or the time that the bracket that attaches the steering rack the tie-rods snapped (i still have NO idea how that could have even happened) and left me on the side of I-290 in Chicago (i had to steer the car to the shoulder by accelerating and braking very carefully, since my steering wheel did nothing), or the time that the shear-pin for the timing belt cog on the crankshaft sheared in the EXACT SAME SPOT a year later. yea, i miss that stupid car.

2011 TSX Sport Wagon here. Bought it 2 weeks ago. 69k miles. I expect to put about 6k miles a year on it, mostly between October and April. I drive my 2004 BMW 325ci coupe (RWD, 5 speed manual) during the Alaskan "summer".

My two kids both are lobbying for it now, my daughter took my CRV when it had 200K and she has 289K on it now. It does have a small rear main seal leak though. I still really like driving it so, I think I'm keeping it

I have no trouble spinning my tires when I take off spiritedly.
Spoiler
I desperately need new tires though so that may factor.

How would you compare your K24 TSX to the wifes K24 Accord?

Negligible difference.

P/W in the 2003 is 0.0525 and the TSW Wagon is 0.0558. That's not really noticeable. The Accord is a 5MT so there is a bit more of an "in control" aspect so far as holding gears so I'd give that one the edge on a track. But for dum-dum floor it and go hoonage, I suppose the TSX would eek out a little bit more nuts.

We drove an auto 2004 K24 Accord a few years ago and I found it to have good torque... Your CU2 wagon is pretty heavy, so I wonder if a CL9 would be a tad quicker?

P.S. Love the TL-S wheels on a 7G Accord!

Just commenting that I've noticed it breaks traction easier than most cars I've owned...and i'm a 40 year old dude with a desk job...I'm not lowered or boosted or Fast or Furious.

I can't help wondering what the front/rear weight distribution is on the wagon relative to the sedan and if the extra rearward weight affects traction in the front tires when hitting the gas semi-spiritedly.

It's not a problem, just a surprise to me.

Was just busting chops, man...I used to be able to light up my old TL pretty good as well as my ex wife's 8th gen accord....
