An Integra By Any Other Name: 2009 Acura TSX

The Honda Integra returned to the Acura showrooms this year after a hiatus since 2001, but the truth is that the Integra wasn’t missing from Acura’s lineup, it just had a different name. Starting in 2002 the RSX was the 2-door Integra and in 2004 the TSX 4-door version was introduced. However, Acura merged the TSX with the slightly larger TL in 2015 to create the TLX and everybody was confused. Anyway, if you want a manual transmission equipped Acura, you’ll need to skip the NSX (which was only available with flappy paddle shifty thing and discontinued after 2022) and get a new Integra for $40k, or a get a used TSX. You can guess which way I’d go. Find this 2009 Acura TSX offered for $5,200 in Soquel, CA via craigslist.
