Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good mix of performance and comfort.

Cons: Loses memory for radio sometimes.

I Love My Tl Type-s! — What's not to like? I had a base model, but saw this Type-S on the lot and had to have it. I have never done such a crazy thing but it was a one-time deal and I had to have it! This car is amazing. I clocked it from 50-70 in 2.5 seconds with my family inside! The car looks mean, and the power goes well with it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: All that power and looks so mean!

Cons: All that power and not enough road :-(

Great Car, That Could Benefit From More Power (300hp+), Bigger Tires (at Least 18") And Keyless Sta — Performance - sprightly but could use more low end torque, acceleration is cool but engine sound like it is straining when gunned, could use lot more growl out of the exhaust; braking is cool though sometimes the electronic braking/auto downshift thing is alarming; handles real well - steering is taut. Torque steer is a problem if you like jack rabbit starts Build Quality - On par. Love the leather. Not crazy about the top of the dash that seems to develop a chalky residue - common on TLs The subwoofer and rear shelf speakers rattle when turned up - unacceptable Appearance - One of the major reason I bought the car. Love the honey comb rims. Cost of Ownership - Gas mileage is 'just ok' and only accepts premium. Had no maintenance issues other than the FM radio receives no reception (AM does) and the nav display cannot auto determine whether it is day or not as it should Fun Factor - Overall it is a fun car to drive. Still needs more power (which the 09s now have)

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

Pros: Styling, Resale Value, Dependability

Cons: No keyless start, torque steer

Absolutely Perfect In Every Way — I have not even gotten to drive this car yet and I love it! It has a 3.2 Liter V6 making 258 horsepower and getting over 30 MPG on the highway. It maybe a relatively high- performance luxury sedan, but the cost of ownership is cheap. All you basically have to do is change the oil and put gas in it. The first schedule maintenance isn't until after 100,000 miles! The handling is incredible, as is the acceleration, and it rides so incredibly smooth. It even has navigation and a kickass sound system, with 5.1 surround sound.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fast, fun to drive, beautiful, and fuel efficient...what more could you want?

Cons: Wide turning circle, inconveniently located iPod hookup

A Great Luxury Performer — The acceleration is pretty great as well as the handeling, however I could use a break upgrade. Great build quality and no rattles. It looks great. Premium gas isn't cheap, but it is very fun to drive. Their is also a good amount of mods available. Sexy tan interior!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, comfertable, and luxurious

Cons: Breaks are good, but not great

Understated Excellence — People often say, why pay so much for an Acura, when you can drive a Bimmer for the same or less. My reply......bimmers are garbage. You get SOOOO much more car for the money. Financially, a similar equipped 3-series would run you ten grand more. And in all honesty, the TL is much more on par with a 5 series.

Pros: navigation is a must

Cons: Its hard to drive at the limit....its so enjoyable......

Love It — I Just Love It, it's amazing its acceleration, its assembly is gorgeous, the only thing i dislike is the gas consumption, it's exagerated, it gets a tank of premium fuel in about a week, It's awesome to drive it, you won't want to get another car once you drive it

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

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
