Good 4 Dr Japanese "sports-touring" Gives 3 Series A Run In Some Aspects — Another one of the best looking cars EVER!!! 3rd Gen Tl's are just plain sexy!!! Great Jap attempt at 3 series market. Almost too good, equals to a negative too. Lots of people have these cars and cause the value of those who bought early to plummet into non-honda acura land. Drives nice, sounds good with a performance exhaust (factory exhaust is a bit conservative sounding) Great all around package i would have kept for a long time if the current market didn't make me loose lots of $ and had the 6seed (type S or base) GEAT A MANUAL!!!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great looking
Good Power V6
Good gas mileage
Those factory exhaust tips!!!
Honda reliability
Lots of included Tech even on "base"

Cons: Lots of them out there (market value has dropped terminally for some of us)
SlushBOX (auto-stick trans)
High RMP for max HP and TQ (V-what?)

Best Decision Made —

After years of cars for just me, wife 'forced' me to grow up and get an adult car (a painful process!). Looked at Lexus, Infiniti, VW. Owned an Integra about 15 years ago and loved it. Hadn't really considered Acura until I drove by the dealer, climbed into a TSX, which was okay, but tight. Then tested the TL and fell in love with it. Handles well, good pick up for a sedan, turning radius a bit wide, but all the other amenities, including one of the best nav systems going and a hands free system that Microsoft is still having to top. Great deal on a great looking car! 2012 @ 103000 miles: Car is still one of the best purchases I've made. For a six year old car, I've had only general maintenance, though the timing belt did need to get replaced at 99,000. The most painful thing is the minor dings that have accumulated due to other people. But the styling and the overall operation of this car could allow me to easily resell, if I chose, at the high end of the KBB spectrum. Gas mileage is still coming in at 28 mpg, which is what it has been all along, average, oil is still a 3000-4000 mile exercise, which you can tell the engine appreciates more in it's older age. Power is still there. Need to change transmission fluid, but other than that, Acura made a great car!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfort and options.  6 cylinder performs very well.

Cons: In this day of $4 gas, mileage is just okay.

Awesome Car! — A wonderful car that combines handling with ride, stability and economy. Truly a great performer. There is no other car that comes close in this price range for the amenities + handling. I prefer the older styling vs. the newer Star Trek version.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: handling, gas mileage, appearance

Cons: Leather stains easily - even from dye on clothing and/or bags

Sporting Aspirations With Extreme Reliability — Having owned numerous BMW's in my lifetime, I considered the 2006 Acura TL for the sporty looks and the incredible reliability. The lines on the Acura TL seem sculpted from a block of metal that appeals to me. Lots of amenities for the money including navigation and Elliot L. Scheiner sound system. Excellent power to weight ratio whilst delivering good gas mileage. Excellent ingress egress. Fun to drive quotient is meh, bland. Having owned many BMW's, I am always conflicted about reliability versus fun to drive aspects. Its not that the Acura TL can't handle a curvy road well, it does a good job. The BMW is much more involving. I feel connected to the road with the BMW. The power and and road holding capabilities are greater in the BMW that the Acura TL which feels a bit numb on center. That being said, the Acura TL costs much less than the comparable BMW and is an excellent value for the money.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Acura TL is sporty and extremely reliable.  This is the car that you take across the entire United States without having to worry about any issues whatsoever. TL looks great with an aggressive sporty style.   Excellent aesthetics overall.  
Acura TL is definitely a few notches above a Honda Accord

Cons: Front drive handles well in the wet but tends to be nose heavy.

Best Car I Ever Owned — This is the best vehicle that I have ever purchased. It has great styling, great acceleration, tight handling, and phenomenal quality of build and engineerring. I consistently get 20 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway even going well over 55 MPH. I have never had a repair issue in the 2.5 years that I have owned this fantastic vehicle.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Look, Quality, Gas Mileage, Acceleration

Cons: Front Door Swing Stops...Could be better designed

"The seats themselves were comparable but since the Tesla doesnt have a transmission tunnel in the center there is more space across the front seating area."
Family Car Ranked 2014 Tesla Model S P85D AWD better.
"The front and rear trunk cargo space and the interior roominess."

Davy says:
It might not be the most powerful or luxurious, but regards to overall rating, the TL is hard to beat considering its value: stylish modern look, long list of standard luxury options, very reliable, great on gas considering V6 power, superb sound system, and lowest true-cost-to-own car by Edmunds.
