    Best Mix Of Luxe, Sport And Family In A Sporty, Gas Sipping Body — We love this car - comfortable, amazing NAV and Voice Activated controls, DVD Surround Sound system is to die for AND it has power AND great gas economy.... literally the best of ALL worlds. My only complaint is the turning radius - my truck has a better turning radius than this car. Other than that - after 140k miles it's still running strong. Daily commute of 100 miles and wearing well :)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: great looking, gas sipping (up to 32 MPG on the freeway!), tons of power and whistles and bells to boot!

    Cons: lousy turning radius...

    Affordable Luxury With Japanese Reliability. — I have loved this car from day one. I bought it new and have yet to find anything else in its price range that I would consider a viable contender. I will likely keep this car until the wheels fall off, or until Acura goes back to this design with a more efficient engined update.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: A very comfortable and classy daily driver.  Probably the best car I have ever owned for all around versatility.  Driver position and controls are perfect.   Fantastic ergonomics.  Comfortable cruiser at 55, or over 100.

    Cons: The rear seat doesn't fold down for access to the trunk like my old Accord did.

    Love It! — Love the acceleration and handling. Gets 25 MPG which isn't bad for a V6 that has 270 horsepower! Cost of ownership can be high, but is to be somewhat expected in a luxury car in this class. They are more expensive to buy as well!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fast, fun to drive

    Cons: Above average in cost

    Sporty Acura — This is a great car that drives nice and tight. It has all the horsepower I would want in a front wheel drive car. Anymore power and it wouldn't be very easy to control when you mash the throttle. It has a great sound system and very good looks.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Comfort and sport

    Cons: Front wheel drive

    One Of The Best Entry Level Luxury Cars In The Last 10 Years — I purchased this car from my parents in March 2010. In my opinion, it's one on the best looking cars on the road and better looking than the new generation TL. Great reliability, power, and refinement. 2004's are great values too since they look just like 2008's.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Room, looks, value, and quality

    Cons: torque steer

    Cant Go Wrong With 3g Tl — The car has minor imperfections but runs and looks good. 0-60 in under 7 seconds and 1/4 mile in under 15 is not bad for a FWD 3.2 L engine. Drives just like when i bought it. Acura FTW.

    A Best Buy Over Entry-level Luxury Rivals Infiniti, Lexus And Bmw, If You Can Get Past The Fwd. — Best car I've ever owned! Sexy looks, a comfortable interior and a performance-minded VTEC V6 motor puts this car leagues ahead of any car in its class. My only gripe? A FWD drivetrain with a lot of torque-steer when you lay heavy on the throttle.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Excellent Honda engineering behind the American-built TL.

    Cons: Only reason to avoid this model would be to pass a non-navi model up for one with navigation.

    My 2004 Acura Tl Dynamic — Awesome except for the hair trigger accelerator. On or off, no middle ground, Clutch was also a little heavy with a very small take-up point. Other than that one of the best cars we have ever had. Enough Said. Wold most definately reccomend to anyone who want s to have some fun.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Just the feeling of how much power there is at your disposal

    Cons: Clutch, Accelerator
