It might not be the most powerful or luxurious, but regards to overall rating, the TL is hard to beat considering its value: stylish modern look, long list of standard luxury options, very reliable, great on gas considering V6 power, superb sound system, and lowest true-cost-to-own car by Edmunds.

I love this car!  Power, acceleration and handling and stopping power are awesome!

Cons

Uses premium gas averages 25mpg with as much as 34mpg highway.

This Acura Sedan Rivals Performance Of The 1989 Corvette I Had. — Bulbs for illumination od steering wheel switch functions do not last and are very difficult to replace. The switch for the hands free bluetooth link breaks easily, also difficult to replace. Otherwise I have no complaints, great car for a 4 door sedan.

Pros

Looks great to be a car that was designed in 2002/2003, it's 2015 and the car still looks relevant, has aged really well. Drives so smooth, no rattles , great power, good feel. I get about 36mpg on the highway.

Cons

Back seat doesn't fold down, which is pretty much the case for this class of cars, but would have been a nice feature. No Auxillary port, but still.

Great Car — There is hardly anything that I dislike about this car. It drives excellent, looks great, Honda reliability and safety with a premium feel . It still looks like a new car, when you look at it, you don't see a 13 year old design.

Very Good Car For Commuting And Occasional Trips — I have had this car for about 6 months without any problem, it has a good power, fuel consumption is also good, maybe not the better but it gives me about 28mpg on regular use (80% commuting + 20% city drive). Very stable in the road. The audio system is also very good but there is very low offer for DVD-a format. It does not have an auxiliary audio input therefore you need to find a different way to connect your external audio player. The navigation system is also very good, except that you need to buy map updates. I definitely like this car.

Excellent — This vehicle has been faithful from the first day I got it. Have only had to service rotate and replace tires. Great ride and excellent with power responses. If you need a vehicle that is reliable but yet executive this is the car for you.

Reliable But Expensive — I liked the style both inside and out but the navigation and audio, especially the lay out of controls made the car more luxurious. I liked the comfortable seats in the front but found the rear cramped, especially for kids. Perhaps the worst part of the vehicle is the fuel economy and the premium gas too!

Great "get up and go", comfortable seats, handles like a dream

Cons

Maps are outdated for the Navigation, and its around $100 to get the new maps.  Gas mileage is a bit low, usually gets around 21mpg in the city

Perfect Mix Between Power And Luxury — A great, reliable car with enough power to win a few Stoplight drags and enough luxury to look at place with a valet. So far with 63,500 miles I've only had to do routine maintenance, and if anything does need repaired you can count on low repair costs due to part sharing with Honda.

Acura Tl Reviee — Overall great car. Just wish it had a little more power and was RWD. The car is very reliable and always turns heads when im driving down the road. The car handles superb! Especially with the tein basic coilovers i currently have for suspension. All in all, it is one of the sexiest sedans on the road today.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Amazing Car, Great Dd And I Would Recommend It To Everyone, Especially The S-type! — Performance wise a very good car, can even compete with the current 2011 330i sedan on the streets today!, it has progressive breaks and tiptronic works nice but there is noticible lag, handling is nice i would have said the steering was a little disconnected but i had Acura tighten it up for me, milage wise average is around 17-19 with city and highway driving, bought the car new but still running exactly the same no problems what so ever with this car, car can be ver fun to drive and the vtec in the car can really put down, nice when you can hold the revs at 4k and respods very well.

A Truly Luxury Sedan At A Price Well Below Market Value. — A terrific blend of smooth handling, luxurious interiors & a lot of power. I've really enjoyed driving this car & will always stick with Acura. This car is fully loaded with Navigation, leather seats, moonroof, premium sound, Bluetooth, memory seats, etc. In 2006, this car won several awards from Best Luxury sedan to NHTS's Highest Safety ratings & I can clearly see why. A terrific purchase which made me a long-term Acura driver.
