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

Tl = Amazing — Performance: acceleration, braking, handling, poewr Build Quality: beautiful design, nice leather, its an Acura. Appearance: gorgeous..... nothing else to say. black on black. Costs: bit of gas, its fine. maybe need to change the oil a little bit more often Fun: YESSSSS amazing car.... recommended highly over Mercedes Benz C-Class or BMW 3 series. they're all about the same... but Acura has surround sound, is cheaper, more reliable, prettier, and is absolutely amazing.

Pros: everything

Cons: none really

Fun Car To Drive... — This is actually my husband's car, but I have driven it on occasion. It handles really well and is fun to drive. He got it fully equipped with nav, Bluetooth and leather. We have had no maintenance problems, other than minor upkeep. It is a really good looking, sporty car, that can also be used to transport our kids, if in a squeeze.

Pros: Sporty, comfortable, peppy, fun to drive.

Cons: Uses high test gas, not a great commuter car for its mileage (my husband drives about 80 miles roundtrip daily),

Techno-infused Sport Sedan — a marketplace behemoth and rightly so. Acura hit all the right notes with the 05 TL, setting the bar high for other manufacturers to follow. Styling is classy yet sporty, inside and out. Mines 3 years old and still purrs like new.

Pros: Love the stereo and navi.  

Cons: Damn FWD configuration

The One To Own For The Long Run — Very reliable and strong in every aspect like power, handling, feel. Everything in this car is tight and remains tight. Many better looking cars out there but not many that reward the driver with such a high level of confidence. I have had 2 Acuras (TL and MDX) looking at getting a newer TL soon.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Super responsive, solid feel for life, amazing breaks, very nicely equipped (even the base model) and full of tech.

Cons: Rear seat not very comfortable for adults, love or hate type looks (I love it), rear visibility could be tricky w/o the back up cam.

Would Reccommend One To Anyone Who Really Enjoys Driving, Wants Some Economy And Likes Performance. — 94k miles and no major repairs (knock on wood). Only expensive cost was new Michelin tires at 88k miles. I keep accurate records on all my cars and this one averaged 17mpg in town and 28 on the road. Best was 34.8. great acceleration, I love driving around Interstate cloverleafs. This is mainly my wife's car but we do use it on trips also because of the milage. Not the best looking of the semi-luxury cars and does not have some of the bells and whistles of other $35k cars. Probably will get the Infinity M35 next year. UPDATE: Bought M35S model. WOW, what a car. I will write a revue on it after awhile.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Minimum expense, Handles well, Great brakes

Cons: Not what I call a true luxury car appointments

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
