Yes, it's another wagon. We're automotive journalists. Of course, we're going to fall for a wagon just about every time.

Especially if it's even remotely sporty.

This 2012 Acura TSX Sport Wagon has an automatic transmission and just 73,000 miles on the clock. It's claimed to be in good condition and hasn't been in an accident. The seller says the only problems are normal wear and tear.

Features include heated seats, all-weather floor mats, and a sunroof.

Give this Texas-based car a look here.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for, CarFax,, High Gear Media, Torque News,,, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as,, and He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    As 28-Cars has pointed out, the Honda tax is strong with this one. I like it in concept better than a crossover (came close to buying one several times) but couldn't submit to the K24/5AT combination knowing how much more flexible (and enjoyable) the K24/6MT is.

    I wouldn't scoff at someone who bought this. It's good. Just not Honda tax good.

    For $18K you could get a lovely e91 of the same vintage in great shape, with a stick and RWD-biased AWD.

  • A I have a project 87 or 88, don't have the year in front of me. Tranny was starting to slip when my daughter drove it, original tranny so it's likely the rubber seals are failing. I had a backup tranny so i disassembled it to see what kind of shape it was in. I did see it needs all the rubber seals, hard parts are all good. So a basic rebuild kit should fix it. The reason she stopped driving it was because she heard a slight engine knock. So both engine and tranny likely will need a rebuild. We are from Wisconsin but only rarely driven in snow, underside looks solid and a bit of surface rust here and there. Some fading from the sun.She has decided to let it go now that ahe is a mother and no air bags. This car is fun to drive but at my age i don't need another project. Will send pictures if anyone is interested, I will let it go at junk price, just would rather see it fixed and driven then crushed and melted down.Contact info
