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.
The 270 HP high-revving engine which gets great mileage -- 21/29.
We have owned 3 Acuras; all purchased new. We will not be purchasing a fourth. Tires on TL wore out after 24,000 miles. Rust on brakes had to be scraped after less than 18,000 miles, not covered by warranty. Passenger side window opens but will not always close. Acura Service tells us it will be $545 to fix. Window service is outside warranty period. There has been no damage to the vehicle that would cause the window malfunction. This is not what you would expect from a company that prides itself in building quality products.
I bought this car used...A lease turn-in. I have loved this car from the get go. I am in my mid-late 30's and it fits me like a "T". Fast, stylist and has all the amenities that I would use (wish but don't have nav). I think the car is quiet but I would agree about the some rattles. I have tried to find most and put an end to them which I have except for a couple which would entail a lot of work. I had to put new brakes on it (because it was a lease turn-in with 36M miles)and I have put about 15000 on it in 7 months. Have done nothing else with it...I owned a 2004 Accord that I put 140M on. Honda/Acura make great cars...I am looking into a used MDX for the wife.
Bluetooth is awesome, XM radio...pickup and go passing. Quiet ride...has the feel of a sports car.
Is a little soft (floating) in the rear. Would have them place controls for climate control in a different area. More Storage in truck. FIX THE RATTLES...MAKE IT TIGHTER.
Been driving my 2005 TL for a few months now and I am convinced that this is the best car I have ever owned. The exterior is slick and sporty. Interior is clean and classy. Love the leather seats. My TL came with a sport package that included factory 18" wheels and a factory body kit. It was love at first sight. I'm up to about 71K miles now and its still running strong. This car is definitely a keeper.
Exterior styling is timeless. Heated leather seats. Large touch screen navigation. Big moon-roof. Pretty much everything is great!
RWD would make this car perfect. Where do I put my pennies? There's no compartment for them. I am color blind, so red gauge needles on black background is hard to see during the day. This car drinks 91 octane gas like crazy. Some road noise on bumpy roads.
Picked up a pre-owned black Acura TL about 4 months ago. I love this car. One of the best cars I've ever owned. My TL came with an OEM body kit and 18" A-spec wheels, looks very clean and aggressive. Interior is nice and comfy. Nice aluminum and wood trim. Big touch-screen navigation is very helpful but software seems dated compared to my wife's Benz navigation. The car picks up pretty quick on the freeway. I'll be going 80 but it feels like I'm going 60. It does drink gas like crazy though. $40 of gas will last about 260 miles only. This is an overall GREAT car. You will not be disappointed.

I am color blind so red gauge needles on black background is hard to see during the day. RWD would make this car perfect. More HP couldn't hurt either. Better MPG. Lots of squeaks when driving down bumpy road. iPod connection would be nice too.
