Outstanding used car
Pros: The seatsI purchased my 2000 3.2TL 4 door sedan in April, 2006 with 45K miles for $13K. Other than oil changes, and a set of tires, the car has not had any service problems. Gas milage is good, 23 city, 28 highway on regular gas (despite 91octane 'recommended.') I checked w/Acura, they told me I might get better mileage and performance with 91, but only 1mpg, and using regular would not hurt the car. I now have 71K miles, still runs and looks new, BEST CAR I HAVE EVER OWNED!
Better than top ten! In a class by itself.
Pros: To many to list!
Cons: I have no dislikes.Bare none this is thee best vehicle I have ever driven or owned. Lexus, BMW, Mecedes, none hold a candle to Acura when it comes to the perfect combination of comfort, performance, quality, appearance, & state of the art features.
My TL Type S, S is for Super!
Cons: That it ages, I wish it could stay like-new!I am a car guy and auto tech and have owned and driven many autos over the 40 plus years of driving. My TL was purchased used with 12K miles and now just turned 108K miles. I have been totally impressed with the build quality, the performance and overall road worthiness of this car, so much so that when I test drive a new car, my TL is the bench mark. You know what, I have not found a new car that satisfies me the in the manner this TL does! I guess that says alot of a seven year old car.
performance & gas mileage seats ?
Pros: Fit & finish, gas mileage, performance
Cons: Front drivers seatWith 35,000 miles the car is still fantastic, Bought as a 07 leftover, just a little over 2 years old. Averaging 31 MPG and plenty of performance, The seats are typical Honda and could be more confortable for this senior citizen.My RL seats were perfect for me.
One of a kind vehicle that fits all catagories.
Cons: I have no dislikes.Acura again has set the standard by which all others are mearured with regard to comfort, performance, quality, and styling! Need I say more?
Pros: Power and Handling
Cons: Premium fuel reqirement.Our 3 kids currently each have BMW 3 convt.,G35 Sedan, and Audi A4. So we were up to date on them. Drove Lexus ES350, but too softly sprung, but very quiet. Last, drove the M35X, and liked it, except for subpar audio. The TL with Tech PKG give excellent bolstered seats, very good handling on corners and mountain roads, and some say best rated ELS audio system. In short, we think Acura TL has the best combination for us. And yes, others come to us and like the styling.
Not quite the sum of its parts
Pros: Exterior appearance
Cons: Navigation systemSport/luxury but more sport. Noticeable engine growl with intrusive road noise from tires and under carraige. Luxury quotient is low, very responsive, sport suspension, reasonably quick. Interior space is confining. Nav system is difficult to view due to glare. Audio is above par. Each element of the TSX is good but the full sport/luxury experience falls short.
