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


Review

I love the acura TL. Interior, quality are excellent. The only worry i have is when starting cold, it idles roughly. When warm it idles nice. Dont like to put premium fuel in it either. Get the navigation, its worth the extra. Buy the Type S if you can afford it.


Favorite Features

Navigation, Blue tooth Phone, Large bolsters on the seats Rear seats are as comfortable as the front


Suggested Improvements

Make the engine run smoother from a cold start, idles really rough, almost shakes the entire car, ive driven others and they are all the same. Make the seat heaters warmer in temp. Passenger seat only heats the back not the seat, loser to a airbag sensor.

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


Review

Excellent car, the best I've ever driven. No matter what other reviews may say, I did not notice any substantial difference in handling compare with BMW 3 series. The only small problem I've noticed was sometimes not very smooth upshift of the auto transmission when the car moves from complete stop.


Favorite Features

Beautiful interior, excellent navigation and audio system.


Suggested Improvements

Definitely needs day time running lights.

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


Review

Not as agile as a BMW 3 series but very powerful. The TL has many more standard features than a BMW 3 at a much lower price point. While not as much fun to drive as the 3 series, it offers a better value. The interior is nothing short of outstanding and is extremely comfortable. A really excellent car.


Favorite Features

Navigation, bluetooth cell phone connnection, and interior.


Suggested Improvements

Make it a rear drive vehicle and it would be as perfect as a car could get.

Review

The TL is a good looking, easy to drive car which provides a lot of amenities for the money. The audio system is particularly impressive and the interior is well laid out and high quality. The ride is a bit stiffer than I was use to having driven a Lexus ES previously.Exterior styling is eye catching. I just really enjoy driving this car!


Favorite Features

Interior layout, surround sound audio, good gas mileage, exterior styling.


Suggested Improvements

a bit more low end torque would be great.

Review

This vehicle is one to go down in the record books. It's quick, sporty, and at the same time affordable. The design of this car compliments the interior. The navigation system includes voice activation of certain components. The audio system fills the car completely. The LED back lite gauges complement its style and attention to detail. The back seat in the vehicle is very comfy and definitely a road trip car. Overall this car is the only car I NEVER had buyers remorse on. I highly recommend this vehicle.


Favorite Features

Navigation system for the interior and HID's on the exterior


Suggested Improvements

back seats don't fold down. Design it so they do.
