  • Thank you very much. 10

  • Clinton appreciate it a lot. 11

  • Um, this is an interesting car. 12

  • It had an interesting place in, like, the sport sedan segment when it came out, and it was built for a long time. 13

  • And I did a really good job. 14

  • Um, the way Clint contact me about this is he sent me his wheel. 15

  • Well, Paige and some of you know what it is. 16

  • 2008 Accurate TSX 2.4 liter inline four right, 200 horsepower stock. 26

  • What's awaiting? 27

  • 33 £3200 probably with the wheels and the bucket seats by about 3200 right now. 28

  • Okay, it's a heavy car. 29

  • It's it's It's a heavy car for its time, I think. 30

  • But nowadays it's like like stay out is like, that's not a bad way. 31

  • Just a weird place. 32

  • We are, Um why Why did you buy this car? 33

  • Um, I'm on the guy, honey. 34

  • G before this, Um, look at this car where you don't wanna rsx Cooper in this house to leader. 35

  • But I really wanted four doors, and this is one of the only Honda's of that era that had double wishbone suspension. 36

  • All the other MacPherson our sex. 37

  • I like steering problems. 38

  • Um, stars work out there, and they all come fully loaded like don't our seats. 39

  • So wait. 40

  • Heated seats. 41

  • Theodore, climate is just the gauges, I think still look pretty nice. 42

  • You know, there's not a day looking car at all. 43

  • No, it's not. 44

  • It's really not. 45

  • The interior is not that day. 46

  • Look, the exterior. 47

  • I have always liked the profile them honestly. 48

  • And then I'll go around the front, go a little little simple. 49

  • Yeah, a little. 50

  • But these cars, they made them for but 04 to 2014. 51

  • Yeah, it was this This this generation will be, oh, Ford away. 52

  • And then, yeah, there was the Gentoo. 53

  • That's right. 54

  • Gents, this is the last of Gen one. 55

  • Yes, they're on Motor Trend's like Car of the Year No. 56

  • Nine. 57

  • They were on best drivers list for, like, three years running, and they won. 58

  • And I know I'm reading off my notes, but I don't remember the specific names of erasing Siri's. 59

  • They want the manufacturer's championship for the touring class in 05 That's correct. 60

  • And then they also want a driver's championship, and then they want another manufactured manufacturer's championship. 61

  • The next year, also with TSX and a bunch of our sex is like it got racing credit that people don't really know about. 62

  • It's super WellPoint inside it, I was gonna be more reliable than a cutting board. 63

  • Uh, yeah, like how they're there. 64

  • A specific plus, right? 65

  • Exactly. 66

  • And we'll get to that in a second. 67

  • It kind of is. 68

  • But for now, let's see how she d'oh try to keep this video a little more concise because there's a lot of traffic on the road trying to avoid that. 69

  • Put the window up for noise. 70

  • All right, so this came out. 71

  • Competition was basically like BMW 3 23 and I asked to 50 eyes to 50 Israel, Dr. 72

  • But I think it only came in automatic and the BMW Israel drive and manual, but more expensive. 73

  • I feel like the eyes to 50 was like a compromise. 74

  • It was Japanese engineering and reliability rear wheel drive. 75

  • But the compromise is like, Well, it's only an automatic it. 76

  • Unless you want. 77

  • You could get bigger engines in them, but for a price for price, this is what we're looking at. 78

  • This I think in Europe it was a Honda Accord. 79

  • Like every other market Honda Korea, Tightness s Japan was in your war, came with different engines in Japan, had a zero was a two litre, uh, every market having different versions. 80

  • Carly. 81

  • Even the interiors were completely different. 82

  • Wait, you're in this. 83

  • It's the same with Andrew Collins of Philip has a t L. 84

  • Both of them. 85

  • The interiors do not look dated. 86

  • These look, I think they look pretty nice. 87

  • Just as nice as some pretty basic like mid level sedans are today. 88

  • It's not like it's fancy, but there's nothing in here that screams at me. 89

  • Uh, the air. 90

  • It was built, which is really good. 91

  • These are also really affordable. 92

  • I mean, I know you like when I was seven grand when I bought, I probably overpaid. 93

  • It is hard to find a white black interior in a six speed manual transmission, but nowadays these cars are so cheap $4000 for your great this'd is. 94

  • This is a really cool car for $4000 because there's no squeaks and rattles in here, so, you know, things built a really high quality. 95

  • As with much any accurate product, my steering feel, I would say, is pretty good. 96

  • You know, it could be a little heavier. 97

  • It's like a little on the light side, and actually, my mind feels a lot braver than most. 98

  • I drive a guilty as exciting It is to wait. 99

  • What? 100

  • I can feel like this road has a lot of weird undulations, and I could feel them through the steering wheel. 101

  • Yeah, spherical controller bushings. 102

  • And that helps a lot of help. 103

  • Menacing steering feel. 104

  • Theo feels good. 105

  • Seed is holding me really well. 106

  • Obviously after Mark it, uh, really nice grip through the corners. 107

  • And so if you watch the video of the central S E R. 108

  • That maybe up now, I drove it about half an hour ago. 109

  • It was kind of bounding over this road a lot more. 110

  • Suspension was good. 111

  • It was just a little bit too stiff. 112

  • This I'm not feeling any of that. 113

  • But I also don't feel like we're leaning over time, the corners and we're too soft. 114

  • This is a really nice compromise. 115

  • Yeah, it was pretty much my goal with a lot of other TSX owners. 116

  • I tracked the car. 117

  • They were a little bit stiffer suspension. 118

  • We don't take much of the track and this is way too soon for the track. 119

  • The card is pushes through every turn for a canyon seven. 120

  • I got a really good. 121

  • Primarily. 122

  • I drive this car every weekend. 123

  • Canyons. 124

  • It's really good. 125

  • This is a really nice kind of daily driver. 126

  • Fun car set up razor on it. 127

  • Hawk age. 128

  • Plus, Yeah, they were pretty well for this car. 129

  • I haven't had defended them just because because it only has 200 horsepower. 130

  • Like I feel like we're moving at a good clip and I can feel a decent amount of torque, but going uphill it out suit if we if I lift, it slows down pretty easily. 131

  • Yeah, well, I mean, the brakes have goodbye. 132

  • They have better pedal field in that. 133

  • Centra actually not talk crap about central sector is amazing. 134

  • Really fun. 135

  • My only two notes on it was like the brake pedal feels a little soft. 136

  • Don't do that. 137

  • May bring upgrade on this car just like bring it on the track. 138

  • But whatever you big big bring upgrade I've ever like my civic pill was still sponging after he did the upgrade. 139

  • Had more buying. 140

  • We could take the heat, but always felt little bit more sponge because you had to move more fluid through the caliber. 141

  • Right? 142

  • At least my experience I mean, this is a really there's the There's the new Accord I drove like the Accord sport on a video, and I have high respect for the Honda Accord. 143

  • It is a phenomenal car at pretty much everything. 144

  • It's just a really it's really good at being a car. 145

  • But there is something about, especially if you're a younger person, you're like a really gonna buy the car that a lot of you know, my parents or my parents friends might have. 146

  • Or I see around like there's just something about them, their identity that is a little bit too like responsible and the accurate. 147

  • It's also a very responsible car, and it's really like, basically, do you want in a corner? 148

  • We have a little bit more money, but if you're a younger person and the prices aren't you different, you can feel like it's a little more special. 149

  • You feel like the car you have is a little more unique, more luxurious, different looking like I don't see these very often around, especially when I first got I don't really see between modified ones, but now it is way have ah whole Instagram like group with a tonic particulars to track which couple years ago I was almost unheard of. 150

  • I bet because, you know, it seems like if you're gonna drive on the product at the track, it should be a civic. 151

  • Yeah, it's gonna be lighter, and there's more aftermarket available, but it's not fun to do the same thing as everybody else. 152

  • It's not fun to have the same solution. 153

  • Is everybody else speedster? 154

  • That's very nice. 155

  • Um, but that guy doesn't get pulled over for no front plate. 156

  • That's not fair. 157

  • That's not fair. 158

  • All right. 159

  • Do you have any plans in this car right now? 160

  • It's like you got your handling Freddy figured out. 161

  • Um, I said, she's the front spring break to something a bit stiffer, and the car needs an LSD for me. 162

  • It needs I'll see someone get a Japanese secular or Trans. 163

  • That's just cosmetics. 164

  • I want Thio spoon sports from lumber, simple things, cars. 165

  • But like you said, it's probably waited. 166

  • For the most part. 167

  • It drives good. 168

  • It looks decent. 169

  • Um, I really ask much more from it, So yeah, I think again, like the competition at the time. 170

  • Like if you're if you're in your shoes and your shopping for a car like in this class if you go on by, Ah, 10 year old BMW 3 23 like stuff gonna break. 171

  • This car has 100 success models, and it feels like it's got 6000 miles compared like that's That's the compromise. 172

  • So this is, I don't know. 173

  • It's nice, man. 174

  • These air like leather leather and let the red on the dorsal is nice design of It's pretty nice. 175

  • Yeah, I've always been a fan of these. 176

  • I always see them on the highway and there's a blue They made a minute. 177

  • He's like, Oh, yeah, second favorite, so good. 178

  • And, um, I was taught that a good looking profile. 179

  • You know, the front isn't really my style, but the rest of it, that's why did the euro are false? 180

  • I have the euro are front lip on the grill. 181

  • So just because the stock Ackerman looks after that, they got really Beaky. 182

  • So it's not. 183

  • It's not to that point, but like you're getting a you know, a room. 184

  • Your civic. 185

  • It's got more room than the Iast 300 eyes to 50 days, and more importantly, it came with six feet. 186

  • Like get with six feet. 187

  • That's the best part. 188

  • So it was It was hard for you. 189

  • Finds color after. 190

  • Actually throw Texas pick this car up. 191

  • So happy drive back. 192

  • Yeah, something broke on the carpet. 193

  • You told me it wasn't his fault. 194

  • It wasn't his fault. 195

  • I know what I love about this job is like drive a really wide variety of things. 196

  • And the more I do it, the more I kind of respect cars that may not have looked at before or right now. 197

  • Way profess the love of the fast Esty. 198

  • And and I think this kind of reinforces, like front wheel drive cars when I grew up, had a bit of a stigma to them. 199

  • And and now, like, yes, drifting a Superfund and we will drive has its own kind of. 200

  • It feels different in the corner. 201

  • But unless you're sliding the car all the time, which no one really is, you can get so much out of a formal drift car. 202

  • You can learn so much about driving and and you can get them in a package that is incredibly reliable, which is a really nice thing to have her and really comfortable. 203

  • Like this is this is a good mix of, like, a grand touring car. 204

  • Exactly. 205

  • You can still track it like that. 206

  • This is really cool, man. 207

  • Thank you for bringing it up to appreciate it on a warm day. 208
