Awesome — This car makes a great family car, it is safe and reliable. When the family is not with you, it makes the kid come out of you. You just want to find a back road and stretch the legs on the girl!

Pros

The 3.5L V6 creates 286 Hp and I belive around 260 ft pounds of torque, could be higher or lower not 100% sure, but from a deadstop, the torque steer is crazy and the quad exhaust rumbles,

Cons

Nothing I can say wrong about the TL yet

A Fun And Fast 4-door — I loved the handling, me and my dad would rip around the backroads by our house for hours and never get tired of the way this thing handles, and the Vtech crossover is godly with the quad exhaust. In the future, my dad says he is planning to eventually have full bolt on mods, starting with the Cold Air Intake, when he does mod it, I will update on it.

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

Love My Car Handles Great! No Problems — Bought my car from Platinum Auto Mall, great price perfect condition! Staff was very helpful and honest. I have No battery or maintenance issues. Acura is a great car brand very reliable can go for two hundred thousand miles. So glad I bought it.

Great Performance With No Drama — this car is so worryfree, I need to remind myself to fill the gas tank every week or so. One of the best features---a cassette player (thankfully saved all my old cassettes). I bought the TSX in '04 and loved it, but needed a bit more room for family. The TL was te perfect choice.

Great Everyday Ride — good family car, but lacks fun factor. Great in winter with good tires. Excellent tech for price compared to higher end cars. Good room in back seat. Navigation is pretty accurate and standard backup camera is a plus. Overall great car for price and excellent reliabilty.

Absolutely Amazing — This is an amazing car that looks great and handles awesome. Powerful v6 engine that turns out over 260 hp. Very comfortable with great acceleration. The only con of this amazing car is the gas mileage which is around 21 city and 23 highway. I would give it a 5 out of a 5.

Awesome — I thought the gas mileage would be not as good but it gives 33 mpg on hwy. Its been great. No big repair costs, performance is great as well. Traction control is awesome while driving in rain. Overall, its great to have navigation system, backup camera, sunroof - all in one.

Pros

Good acceleration
Good handling for a front wheel drive sedan
All inclusive packaging (NAV, In-dash DVD changer, Moonroof...)
Decent gas mileage when driven like a granny
Smooth and quiet
Dealer gives you free loaner car

Cons

Manual pedal shifting is way too slow
Suspension is not taut enough
ABS kicks in way too early
Maybe a little more pronounced exhaust sound would add to the sporty nature of this car
Ugly wheels (It's my car so it's the only opinion that counts)
Bad gas mileage if driven enthusiastically
Service at the dealership costs $$$$

Nicely Equipped Performance Family Sedan — So it's a sporty version of the TL with 3.5 liter V6 developing 286hp, driving the front wheels. It's nicely equipped inside with NAV, 10 speaker in-dash DVD changer, special alloy wheels, a lip spoiler and special leather seats standard. It drives smooth and quiet. Build quality is good and is quite roomy inside. As for the gas mileage, I average 27 MPG, driving slower than grannies. If I slam on the gas pedal (the way I used to drive for 20 years), the average drops to below 22 MPG. Compared to what I drove right before this car (Honda S2000), this car drives like a fat cow. 6 speed manual is offered which I would have loved to get, however, I was overruled by my better half. Manual transmission would have improved all the performance numbers as well as the driving enjoyment for me. Oh well, can't have it all, I guess it beats driving a mini-van.
