I got my TSX because it came fully loaded. I had no expectations of durability or reliability, other than it's an Acura/Honda. It's far exceeded my expectations. I've used Mobil1 since the first oil change and done regular maintenance.
The only things I've really had to replace were motor mounts and some minor suspension work, but other than that, it's been great.
The '04 is the only year that doesn't have XM equipment pre-installed, but everything else is there.
I plan to drive it until it crumbles, while saving up as much as I can for whatever is next. I've never driven a car for this long, so being in it for 8+ years is really something for me."An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward.

Ours was fantastic back in the day, maby because it was so hi tech. 50/50 chance the car will get wrote off so I wouldn't worry about him putting more than 20-30k on it. Every BMW we have ever had has been flawless actually and my fam runs hem out to 100-150k miles in like 5 yrs then hands them down.
I know I'd take a higher maintenance car with a million miles on it than a brand new shit box appliance car

Well to give a different opinion, why not a used Mustang? They can fit a tall person and can be fun to drive. They also can help get people into cars. Or if he's more of a cowboy type of guy, a nice used truck. If he'd be interested in a truck, a 4x4 Ranger is a really good and smaller truck. If I was in your shoes SMW, I'd push to get him a car he can work on. Then help him fix it up. It might just surprise him how much fun cars are. I know whenever I end up having kids of my own, that will be part of their car experience. I'd be willing to spend a little more on their first car if it meant that they got to customize it to their liking and put in the wrench time.~Joe
