Reader’s Ride: Josh’s 2005 Acura TSX
I found a car that’s well on its way to million mile status. Check out the odometer on this 2005 Acura TSX that’s driven an average of over 46,000 miles per year. That’s right: 370,923 miles!
Several months ago, I’d seen a fellow Acura fan post on Facebook about his high-mileage TSX. We ended up sharing stories about our experiences in “life beyond 100,000 miles” in an Acura.
These two Acuras share the same 2.4 liter 4 cylinder motor.
Josh and I finally had a chance to meet last night when he brought his White Diamond Pearl beauty over to a hotel where I was staying on the west side of Boise, Idaho.
Josh bought this TSX brand new. He is in the insurance business and currently drives around 5,000 miles per month. Josh says that his car is 100% dealer maintained and the service team at Lyle Pearson Acura knows him personally. In fact, when they call him for an after-service follow-up, “Smooth and silky, as always, Josh?” is their greeting.
This car is equipped with all the bells & whistles that were available in 2005, including the navigation.
Check out that bug collection!
Josh and I took the TSX for a spin around the block and I must say – even with the original suspension, the car rides great!
My favorite part: He’s even still left the blue plastic covering over the aluminum door sills since the car was new 8 years ago.
Thanks, Josh, for meeting up! Drive to Five! I’ll be keeping tabs on your progress.
