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.
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.
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.
