I bought my TL new and after doing a bit of specializing, had the stock rims dipped in black chrome, drove off the lot & only return when it's time for regular maintenance. I love this car, it's sophisticated styling inside & out still make it a head turner 5 years in. It handles great and is very responsive when you need to 'get going'. The large screen Navi is great, XM feature w/ awesome 6 speaker stereo sound, voice command features incl bluetooth cellular...this car has it all. I think my 2005 looks is better than the 2011 I see at the dealership. Never regreted this purchase...ever!

Purchased used with 19.5 k miles, ULEV rated (were available for sale in CA and upper New England at the time). I've put about 34 k miles on it and it has performed flawlessly for the 3.5 years I've had it. No repairs, rattles or anything negative over this period. It IS tire-sensitive. Now I'm using Bridgestone Serenity series and the ride is smooth and quiet, haven't noticed any significant tire wear for 20+ k miles. It's fast and fun to drive. I am familiar with the BMWs and yes they handle well, but the TL is right up there with them IMHO. TL is a little quieter than many of BMWs (especially wind noise at speed). At 70 mph, gives about 31 mpg but I don't punch it much.

I was excited to get this car, but after 3 months of owning this car, I found the ride handling is floaty when hitting bumps or when changing lanes. Car tends to sway side to side. There is too much wind noise, rattles on the driver side door, rattles also coming from the glove box, and rattles from the rear speaker area. I use to own a 1997 Acura CL and I never had any rattling noises from that car. This new generation TL needs lots of improvement. Seats are also uncomfortable for long trips.

This car has been a complete joy. For Under $40k this car has every option a consumer could possibly desire. This car moves out of the way and comfortably fits 3 plus a carseat with plenty of room to spare. I wouldn't give this car up for the world.
