After doing my research the worst 2005 Acura TL problems; cracked dashboards, transmission failure, and clear coat peeling off. However for the dashboard an inexpensive fix...Coverlay 30-408LL-BLK Dash Cover Cap, Black, Black, ABS Plastic, Direct Fit.

In viewing to replace my Acura I drove all kinds of cars to compare, new, used and high end. Nothing has the full package like this car; Bembro brakes, wishbone suspension, great handling, bluetooth and excellent speed all with a six speed stick shift. The best car I have driven and I have driven a limited edition Corvette, Mercedes, BMW, Shelby and porsche

Fast, Fabulous, But A Sqeaks A Little Too Much For A Honda — Bought this car when my 95 Accord had 300k miles. Honda now has 430k miles and this car is my toy. I like the style inside and out, acceleration, handling, and brakes are fantastic. Have some quality issues that surprised me for Honda product. Glad I got this style before they changed it. No plans to sell it.

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

Pros: Absoultely excellent acceleration, braking, styling, and handling! Sound system is great too!

Cons: Front seats need more padding, weird occasional vibration in tires, lots of squeaks (from a Honda!), dash turns a ashy grey (need special cleaner to keep it looking good), No Aux connection to sound system

The Perfect Luxury Sports Sedan — This ageless car will continue to look great in the years to come. It's unique design makes it feel relevant to the current time. It's attractive look will always make heads turn. Driving to a dinner while listening to classical music will make you feel elegant. Opening the sunroof with the windows down will make you feel free and joyful. Stepping on the gas pedal with a purpose will make you feel as a racer, as the engine roars into competition. The Acura TL is for those that like to embody their multi characteristic instincts at the press of a button ... or pedal.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sporty looking yet luxurious. Love all the buttons on the console, cockpit feel, you are in control of everything. Love the acceleration feel.

Cons: Not too much of a fan on the colors

Vera;s Report Card — I loved this car. I usually trade every two or three years. However, with Vera, I enjoyed her so much and her handling is so good I have had her just shy of 10 years. New TL was too expensive for the life style I choose to live now but would recommend them to anyone.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel costs are low

Cons: I had to replace the transmission but post that I have had no issues

2014 Acura TL Reviews

Review By onca51

It’s a beautiful car and it drives like a dream. Best car I’ve owned yet. I will say that unless you’re getting the SH-AWD, just stick with the Accord. The tech is outdated and honestly a burden. Read More
