Pros

Handling and comfort. Styling is superb. Just a beauty to own.

Cons

Navigation needs work, often too difficult to operate while driving. Gets lost in big cities.

2009 Acura Tl Sh-awd Black On Black On Black — A lot of power!!! Handling is superb. Better than a BMW 5 series any day. Has a lot of fun options i.e. voice activated systems, navigation, backup camera, great on gas. Oh and it is AWD which makes it virtually impossible to lose control on a wet road while braking, accelerating, passing, or going through a curve. The comfort level is unbeatable for its class. Edmunds.com rated is at the top of its class, with the Infinity Q80 a step higher due to a .15 second difference off the line to 60mph. Sorry but that is not significant to me. Did not buy the car to race but for its quality. This is the fourth Honda product I have owned.

Pros

This is a really fun car to drive.  It handles well on the back roads and on the highways.  I drive many highways and have no fatigue at the end of a long day.

Cons

Premium gas but i bet i get about 23mph.

Awesome And Unbelieveable — With the SH-AWD this car handles and accelerates very well. It pulls the car through the corner! The AWD system gives you confidence in the snow. I could not be happier with this car. This car is fun to drive at any speed!

Wonderful To Drive — stated in the cons.... you must get the tech pkg for this car to be worth purchasing. rear bumper is flimsy and front grille is too flaky looking should be real chrome and brakes wear out quickly but its a good car

Stylish Without Spending Crazy $$ — Liked the distinctive look, Acura's blue is outstanding! Very comfortable with top notch sound system with nav and rear camera. The biggest surprise was the narrow turning radius, particularly since it's front wheel drive. Back seat is quite comfy too.

What's Not To Love — sylish, beautifully built. well designed and a pleasure to drive. Acura has done it again. Value and luxury at an affordable price. Awesome. The car has the feel of an aircraft. The driver is in a cockpit, as is the passenger. Controls are well placed and well designed. No disappointments here!
