2005 Acura TL FWD with NavigationReview

True Sport Luxury — Solid built, super-Honda. I love the simple, but agressive styling and all the added featues, including Navigation, 6-disc cd changer, voice command, bluetooth hands-free link for telephones, HID lights, heated seats, XM radio and tilting rear view mirrors (when in reverse). I love this car and only wish I had gotten one sooner.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast engine, yet very luxurious

Cons: I can't think of any negatives, but if I had to say something I'd said, no back up camera.

Reliability And Totally Loaded .he Same Cannot Be Said About Bm , Mb Etc. — 100% reliable,wanted a BMW, fell in love with the TL & have never regretted it. Still have it -not one problem ! Hate the looks of 2009 TL and that might force me eventually to cross to BM ., unless the new 6s Manual is good. Enjoying my TL 2005 6speed manual - torque steer or not - fantastic under the snow....I recommend it without hesitation !

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Totally reliable   even when you use it for work !

Cons: non...  .. perhaps the noisy summer tires!

My Tl — Performance- Solid performance for a 4 door sedan. Nice handling, good brakes, decent acceleration Build Quality- Very good nothing has broken because of bad quality. Appearance- Amazing interior (one of my favorites among cars) and exterior, Xenon lights Cost- Standard maintenance fees, not outrageous, no reliability issues Fun Factor- Very fun to drive, although standard all season tires leave something to be desired

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

Pros: Great looking car inside and out, reliable, firm but smooth ride, decent acceleration, good handling

Cons: Loses a lot of performance and handling ability when there is a lot of added weight (noticeable)

It's Hard To Beat All That You Get In This Car For The Money. — It's a top pick for the amount of technology you get for the value. High quality fit and finish. Cost of ownership is average. It is a blast to drive in all conditions. You must get the navigation system on this car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Style, Technology, Performance, Handling

Cons: Front wheel drive not preferred by all, not that sporty of a ride.

Fun To Drive, Great On Gas, Plenty Of Room. — The only thing this car needs is rear wheel drive. Awesome car in every aspect. Performance is decent for a 260hp front wheel drive car. Honda quality at it's finest. Very aggressive look for the 2004 debut. Ownership costs have been very reasonable.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast enough, handles well

Cons: If you want a Vette or 911

Great Prformance For A Great Price — Handles very well for a fwd. The interior is amazing and I love how they set up the controls in the front. Most of the controls seem inherent. The Styling on the outside is very aggressive and elegant at the same time. Very clean, modest, and upscale.

Pros: Interior and exterior design is amazing.

Cons: fwd

2005 Tl Was Great — I loved this car. I had the 6 sp manual transmission/ The car was a rocket...and I didn't even get the "type-S." My favorite part was thing was that Acura includes almost all of the options. Try to equip another similar car for the same price. I personally love BMW 3's and 5's...I love German styling...but my experience was that to get the same features as are on the Acura TL, I would have spent about $9,500 more. MPG was unbelievable! I regularly got 26 mpg in town and 31 on the highway. (Wish I still had it in Summer '08). The stereo sounds great, low interior road noise. This was my first car with navi and blue-tooth wireless. I won't go back. My Acura TL experience was so great that I knew I was sticking with Acura when my family got larger and we needed an SUV. I love my dealership and the whole Acura product. I would recommend this to anyone.

Pros: Navi, value, high quality construction, ride

Cons: lack of optional AWD

Best Car I Have Ever Had — We love the TL. Great finish, more than enough power and incredible handling. THe 6-speed MT really makes for fun weekend driving in the twisties. Only comment is that its a lot of HP for a front wheel drive, you can get a bit of torque steer especially exiting low speed turns in lower gears.

Pros: Great personal car with plenty of room for the family

Cons: Torque Steer
