Bought the car used with 120k one owner,I've had for a year now and it drives like its show room condition! The orginal owner never took it in for any problems during warranty. 4 door sedan with good muscle power. Japanese know how to build cars, thats for sure! I love my TL.
As a retired Naval Aviator, I have a sincere appreciation for performance, reliability and ďfitĒ. I purchased my 2005 TL new with the assumptions that it would provide years of performance and have the road manors to handle long trips without rattling my old bones. Actually, the car has surpassed those expectations and is categorically the best car Iíve ever owned. It has some inherit limitations involving wet or snowy road conditions that may challenge even an experienced driver, but overall itís a keeper.
Clean lines, excellent handling on turns, highly reliable and fun to drive.
Tire upgrade is not optional and in winter conditions consider high quality snow tires.

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!
How beautiful the TL looks inside and out. Voice activated command console, large Navi screen.
Gas mileage could be better, I drive mostly city & get about 18 mpg.
I purchased this car in July of 08 with 33000 miles on it. I love this car and all its features. I have owned several Acura's and Honda's in the past and this TL is by far the best. The only issue I have had is the drivers side window seems to rattle but I understand this is a common problem. I recently replaced the tires with some that were highly recommended on a tire website and I think it has made a major difference with the drive ability of this car. Acura's seem to hold up so well, they have qreat fit and finish.
Love all the features that this car comes with. The stereo is great espically with XM radio.
Can't really think of any except maybe the maintenance costs at a dealer but that is normal for a luxury vehicle. Some of those costs can be reduced by doing some maintenance at home.
I purchased this TL in April. Love the car with only one real complaint. The Seats are hard to keep clean.. The dye from jeans bleed right into the leather. The seats are tan so they look dirty. Other than that this is a wonderful car.
Engine, Body style, sound system
Better Leather. Noticed 2007-current leather seats have improved..
