Overall:

Had a 2005 model, looked nice, drove smooth, Bose stereo, great pick up if u like driving fast and being able to maneuver around other cars on the highway, nice interoir with alot of options. Downsides, gas cause must get 91 octane or higher, considered a sports car when getting insurance therefore it costs more, must replace expensive tires which are average $180-$200 a piece, slightly less spacious than my Honda accord, extra warranty from dealership was bout $3500 about double my Honda and repairs more expensive, less mechanics that expertly repair your issues unless you bring it to the dealership which can be expensive. Overall quality vehicle that will last and can put alot of miles on and have for years as long as you maintain it by using the right gas, changing your oil ECT. Also they retain their value if you go to resell it or trade it in. As far as the body and its looks I consider it very stylish. Acura TLs are overall a reliable car with plenty of luxury for the everyday person. Recommended for your upgrade/downgrade and a test drive!

Beautiful To Look At But Power Is Lacking —

I love this vehicle. It's beautiful to look at and has great features. However the power in this car as opposed to the car I had before was as different as night and day. My old car as FUN to drive and they both got around the same gas mileage. The maintenance has gone up but still lower than what I've paid for previous cars. I've taken the car to the shop several times for the same thing and was unable to get it fixed. My oil pressure sensor must be faulty because even with 100% oil life, it is constantly going off and when I told the dealership, they acknowledged what it could be but didn't offer to fix it. I have the same issue with a high pitched sounding noise that of course they say they can't hear but even with the radio all the way up, I can hear it over the music. At one point in time there was a creaking noise every time I turned the wheel and I took it to the shop time and time again, but supposedly it wasn't hear but I went searching online for a Technical Service Bulletin and there certainly was one. Apparently this was an issue and not just my imagination. I had to print out a copy of the TSB and take it to the service department. Only then was it replaced. Overall the car gets a good rating but certainly not a great one.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Aesthetically a beautiful car. Great tech features. Lower cost maintenance.

Cons: Rudimentary looking nav system. Lower HP than its competitors. Poor materials in speaker system.

Very Stylish — Acceleration is very sharp and the feel of the car is that I am in a much smaller sports car than a four door sedan. Very safe car and plenty of room for a family of five. Have never owned a car with as little maintenance required as this one.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very responsive, very low maintenance costs. Also think Acura puts a very good navigation system and back up camera.

Cons: Honestly, don't have a lot of complaints. If I was being picky I would prefer some wood accents in the interior but that's about it. Matybe a little better gas milieage

Awesome And Unbelieveable — With the SH-AWD this car handles and accelerates very well. It pulls the car through the corner! The AWD system gives you confidence in the snow. I could not be happier with this car. This car is fun to drive at any speed!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This is a really fun car to drive.  It handles well on the back roads and on the highways.  I drive many highways and have no fatigue at the end of a long day.

Cons: Premium gas but i bet i get about 23mph.

Stylish Without Spending Crazy $$ — Liked the distinctive look, Acura's blue is outstanding! Very comfortable with top notch sound system with nav and rear camera. The biggest surprise was the narrow turning radius, particularly since it's front wheel drive. Back seat is quite comfy too.

Pros: Great looks inside and out. Nav and sound system major positive

Cons: Trunk space is just OK
