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


Review

What can you say about a car with 150K miles that doesn't have a rattle or squeak, everything works perfectly and drives like new? 33 MPG on highway and averaging 28 in combined driving. The interior still looks new. Impressive car given the mileage and age. Very pleased and would highly recommend. Best stock stereo I've had. Better than BOSE in Infiniti and Harmon Kardon in my BMW.


Best Features

Interior design. Perforated leather seats. XM radio. Stereo sound. Interesting mix of materials, that just look great. Smooth and quiet. Interior light in center console box. Plenty of room for 3 kids in back seat.


Worst Features

Still prefer rear wheel drive. Miss seat coolers that Infinity had.

Review

I purchased this car used with 79000 miles which i did not see as a problem as the time because I owned a 00 Honda Accord that I purchased with high miles. 1 month after the purchase everything went down hill..rattling through the car - power seats stop working - calipers going bad and grinding the rotors. I have really lost respect for Honda I am just waiting to be done with Honda and get a Fusion.


Worst Features

Everything

Review

I have always driven Hondas and have wanted a TL since they changed the body in '04. Finally bought a used '05 in Oct of '08. Love it! Sharp looking, powerful, comfortable, reliable, relatively economical. Mine is silver with gray leather. Bought it with 25k on it and I've put 28k on it since acquiring it. I commute 33 miles to work 1 way. Have seen 33 mpg on the highway a couple of times but average 31 on hwy. City driving is a bit more dismal in the high teens. Overall average is 25-26 mpg.


Best Features

I love the way the car drives, especially on the highway. Very sporty, comfortable ride, good power, great handling. I also love the way the car looks. A very handsome design. Like the new body style TL after getting used to it but loved this one instantly.


Worst Features

More power is always a plus and better overall fuel economy or at least an engine that doesn't require premium fuel. Most of my suggestions have been answered in the '09 & '10 TLs. iPod hookups are now available.

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


Review

Extremely stylish vehicle. Head turner, even at five years old. Abundant whiz-bang features in the cabin -- lots of them linked to the particular driver's key fob. Engine is very powerful -- wonderful sound. Front-wheel drive pulls the car forward nicely on dicey roads. Soft leather seats. Xenon headlights which are tightly focused. XM/Sirius radio. European feel on the road. Great value.


Best Features

The 270 HP high-revving engine which gets great mileage -- 21/29.


Worst Features

Bluetooth is hard to program.
