2005 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Absolutely Not.. This car's got enough fun power to make you feel 18 again. And you do... if you use the manual shift. Only improvement needed: Stiffer shock absorbers to handle high speeds.


Favorite Features

Style and power.


Suggested Improvements

Suspension.

2005 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan w/Summer Tires and Navigation System (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I have owed this TL since the first one came out in 2004 and that is one of the best car I have ever driven.


Favorite Features

The Navigation system is worth every penny but the sound system needs a little more noise but at the same time it is great.


Suggested Improvements

Well cornering is not like my Toyota Supra but could be upgrated in the next TL version.

2005 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Sporty, luxurious with all the buzzers, lights and bells. Powerful and fun to drive. Everyone who has ridden in it is amazed and impressed - even BMW owners. Performance is lively, a nice cross between Lexus luxury and BMW nimbleness. If possible, GET THE MANUAL transmission--more fun! Get it with Navigation; the Bluetooth technology is outstanding. The navigation system is far better than OnStar (and no monthly fee!). NEVER GET LOST AGAIN! You'll feel safe and you'll drive in confidence and comfort wherever you go. Surround sound system is impressive; voice control is fun and at times, quite useful. Nice sized trunk; surprisingly good highway mileage (6M).


Favorite Features

The list is long: agile handling; very quick acceleration. Outstanding sound system; navi system well developed. Bluetooth (wireless to your cell phone) means SAFE cell phone usage. Very comfy seats, roomy back seat. Fun to drive with 6M (stick shift) trans. Great dash, well laid out.


Suggested Improvements

8-way power passenger seat (vs 4-way); no seatback heater for front seat passenger; door gaskets squeak after 10K miles; (dealer to apply a chemical for fix). Tach/speedo much brighter than other displays at night (esp. buttons). Fog lights should work also with parking lights, please!

2005 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My wife did the research on several cars in this class and decided this was the one. I had not even considered an Acura, and assumed she would select a BMW 325. The navigation system was a must have, and I admit it has been well worth the money. We traveled out of state weekend after we bought the car, typed in the location, and although it told us "we were no longer on a digitized road" (or something like that) directed us to our location. Performance is excellent. We have had trouble twice with electrical problems. The outside air temperature indication fails, followed buy "quirky" electrical issues. The dealer has resolved the issues. Look at an Acura, she already wants the SUV.


Favorite Features

Looks are great, as is the performance. Plenty of room in the back seats.


Suggested Improvements

This puppy needs day time running lights and auto headlights. She picked the light gray which is hard to see early morning.
