    Ac-right — Handling is a little soft, body roll isn't great on turns but it isn't a sports car so i'm content with it. Mechanically, the car is amazing no issues at all. The overall appearance of the car is stunning. The gas mileage is not very good, if you do alot of driving you will be at the gas station often. The TL is great to drive and it has the power to make people look twice.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Agressive looks, powerful Vtec engine, Comfortable and spacious interior

    Cons: Gas Mileage is less than stellar, body roll on cornering

    I Like!! — LOVEDDDD this car, and still do. Drove it for about two years, on and off. Mum's car. I picked it out, would've gone for the Type S, but she doesn't need any of that other stuff. Would've been nice though. Wasn't able to talk them into needing it.. Hahaha...

    Pros: Navi, steering, solid build, best looking TL model out of all the others

    Cons: Gas milage

    Best Bang For The Buck — This was my 2006 Self Birthday Present. As an overall car, I consider it Best Bang for the Buck in this range. The 6-MT has short close ratio gearing to bring out some spirit in the driving. Brembo Brakes are amazing. There's a world of difference from the Automatic's smaller brakes (I actually don't like the auto's brakes). As most Honda made cars, this car is nimble for it's size, weight and class. Drawback is that it's not best in anything. Some Acura Parts are not up to spec. OEM rotors were heat scored and had to be replaced after only 30k miles. I have the EBC slotted/dimpled (awesome) and Hawk HPS pads. The Hawks currently squeal like a Banshee.

    Pros: High Tech gadgetry, Spirited and Nimble, Best Value

    Cons: Not best in Class (but not far behind in anything either), Torque Steer, Front Wheel Drive

    06 Acura Tl 6-spd W/nav — The clutch and gearbox combo is awesome!! There's plenty of passing power, and the car handles very well for a sedan. The manual transmission also adds front Brembo brakes, and the car stops on a dime. The interior is just about perfect as far as ergonomics and aesthetic appeal goes, however the build quality is lacking. Unfortunately there are rattles, and some minor fit and finish issues that drive me nuts. The exterior is handsome, but very angular and looks like a $30k+ car, however I personally am not crazy about the styling. My car is also white, and there is a noticible discoloration between the colour of the bumpers and the body of the vehicle which Acura refuses to address. The car is super fun to drive and features the perfect combination of sport and luxury, and is fantastic for long road trips.

    Pros: interior styling, performance and clutch/gearbox combo.

    Cons: fit and finish is lacking for a $30k+ car, too many squeaks and rattles

    06' Acura Tl — I love the cars overall performance and appeal but I hate it's turning radius, the type of fuel it uses I hate how hard it is to clean particular areas of the interior, i love the ease of its navigation system and how easy it is to drive but I hate it's blind spots, but damn, its acceleration and top end are amazing.

    Pros: Gas mileage, top speed, high end luxury at an affordable price

    Cons: Premium gas, and some cheaply made decorative parts

    Poor Interior In Acura Tl — Had to have my passenger seat repaired four times. Had to replace the spoiler because it was coming off. I also had to replace the auto dimming review mirror because it stopped working. The Drivers side door was just starting to squeak as well as the center dash.

    Pros: Navigation, Stero

    Cons: Seats

    Smoove — A real Q ship

    Pros: Delightfully quick, handles amazingly well for what I consider to be a HUGE car, gets fuel economy almost as good as my '89 civic on the highway, just a  magnificent car

    Cons: I'm beginning to think 260 hp might not be enough....

    A Real Beauty — Great standard features, a pleasure to drive. Not a real head-turner anymore, there are a bunch out there but if you like a quiet comfortable drive and tons of spare horses under the hood, look no further.

    Pros: Standard features, gas mileage, fit/finish

    Cons: Tape deck is standard but no iPod linkup... what's up with that?

    30k Luxury And Performance — European made Honda, ROCKS out the competition. The interior is where its at. Very supple leather, and style is like a Maybach. If anyone knows how to drive they know, it all starts with the Tires. Very high-grade performance and monitoring devices located in the tire. Helpful if you ralley drive your way to work.

    Pros: everything for the $$$

    Cons: backseat room needs a little more for those basketball players that may roll with you
