I bought my 05 TL with a little over 54,000 miles. It now has 105,000 miles.
The 3rd generation TL's are very good cars. Comfortable, quiet, roomy, refined and I like the FWD because we do get snow here in KY. I just did the timing belt replacement (almost $1000 at dealer) so guess I will be keeping it for awhile.
I really like the TL as in my opinion gets great gas mileage for a car that performs this well. I average 22-24mpg combined and anywhere from 28-33mpg highway. The only complaints I have are the brakes. They perform well but rotors tend to warp easily and the calipers went bad around 95,000 miles.
Other than this the TL is probably the best car I have owned.

I bought this car brand new back in 2005.
Mechanically it's worked great.
I've only had to do basic maintenance on the car such as batteries, belts, fluids, etc.
I did have a power steering hose to begin leaking that I had repaired.
6 months later I get a recall notice from Acura and they reimburse me for the cost of the repairs and install a new power steering hose.
This car now has 162,000 miles on it and it's doing great.
I just wish the newer TL's looked as good because I would buy another.
The only down side has been tire wear.
This car does like to go through some tires about every 25 to 30K miles.
The tire wear is based upon normal driving.

My wife purchased the TL new with the 7 year/100,000 extended warranty.
The warranty just expired.
Total regular maintenance for 7 years are $3600--all done at Acura dealership.
Total repairs on my 2005 Infinity purchased the same day with same warranty are $9300.
I love my Infinity, but regular maintenance is expensive.
Acura repair bills very low over 7 years.

This is the second TL we have owned and
I think once you own a TL you are hooked. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this car. It is such a pleasure to drive and so comfortable. A very reliable car. In the winter my husband puts snow tires on the car and I have absolutely no problems getting around the hills of Pennsylvania. We love the TL so much that we are thinking about trading it in for a 2012. This car has been so reliable that we don't even look at other makes of cars because we know we will be disappointed in the quality.
