I have owned my TL for about 3.5 yrs now and I still love it as much as I did when new. The most reliable car I have ever owned, great performance and with the 6-speed I just love driving through the mountain roads and winding up the engine. Fuel mileage better than I expected and have seen 38 on the hwy thanks to a couple of performance upgrades.

I bought my car in July and it has been so much fun to drive!! The looks, both inside and out, are top notch. I drove the comparable BMW, Lexus, and Infiniti and all had some kind of issue that I didn't like. The TL smoked all of those in my book (after 6 months of research)! I drive mostly on the highway and average 28 mpg so it also gets great mileage. Everything is great! Except... The only bad thing is that since Acura used so many different materials on the inside, during the cold months they squeak and rattle sometimes. It doesn't happen all the time but when it does it DRIVES ME CRAZY!!!! Still love the car and wouldn't have been this happy with anything else.
Acceleration, gas mileage, bluetooth, seat comfort, roominess, and of course LOOKS!!

I have owned my Acura TL for 1 1/2 yrs. It has everything you can imagine as far as options, but it doesn't have auto lights or an aux jack. Another very annoying thing is that the car is very LOUD on the road- makes you feel like you're NOT in a luxury car. Other: leather is cheap. My center console has gotten so thin that it looks pushed down all the time. Just not what you'd expect from a car that costs around $40k brand new. In some light, the instrument gauges have such a bad glare that I can't see them. The navigation is great, the build quality is decent, and the car gets a lot of looks on the road. Definitely looks great when cleaned up.
Navigation is great. Styling and layout is great. The only "bad" things are what I listed above (I'm very picky), but other than that, I love my car!!
AUTO lights (come on Acura!), aux jack, quality leather, different plastic on instrument panel, and better door seals to make the car quiet and more "luxury" feeling.
I have now had this car for exactly one year and can honestly say I am as excited to drive this car today as I was a year ago. Be advised that I am a very picky person but cannot think of any complaints about this car. It is a comfortable ride, very quiet. It is also very quick and loves to corner fast (as do I). Last, it has a very organized interior layout that is intuitive and exceeds my needs. I just went with my girlfriend as she test drove an '02 BMW 3330xi ($30K). I realize it's a beemer, but truthfully, my TL is just as nice, just as sporty and cheaper. She even is wondering why she doesn't get a TL instead and save some $. Great car, no regrets.
Handling is crisp (I had to give up eating in the car as the steering is way too sensitive to drive with my knees!!).
Headlights that automatically come on is the only thing I can think of.
My car usage is about 75% city, 25% highway, so I was being realistic when I predicted my MPG. The Acura TL is projected to get 21/29, but so far I've been getting a ridiculous 15.5 MPG, and needless to say, I am thoroughly disappointed. I was highly anticipating the relief in MPG, which was one of the deciding factors during my car-buying process, but 15.5 MPG is SUV territory. I feed my car the suggested 91 octane, I drive with a soft foot, and the A/C gets next to no use.
The car looks great inside and out. When detailed (washed/barred/polished/waxed), it's the hottest car on the road.
I know I'm a city driver but 15.5 MPG is unreasonable.
