2006 Acura TL 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I love cars, but I hate when they break. My last BMW spend more time in for service than it did in my garage! This thing isn't quite as fun as a 330i, BUT IT DOES NOT BREAK! Plus, I can't complain about 31 mpg with cruise set at 80 mph! You do have to run premium if you want optimum horsepower and MPG. Go with the manual transmission and dump the stock all season tires and you can't go wrong. Couldn't justify spending two grand on a nav system when I can read maps, so I didn't order that. The upgraded Brembo brakes that come with the manual version are simply amazing, but pedal modulation could be a little easier at the top of tip in. So comfortable on any road, find some twisties and enjoy!


Best Features

Reliability, fuel economy, even better than usual Xenon headlights, slick 6-speed, almost no torque steer for a front wheel drive car.


Worst Features

See the new 2009 TL Type-S, as far as I can tell they have fixed all of my complaints about my regular 2006! All-wheel drive!

2006 Acura TL 4dr Sedan w/Nav System (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Interior: superb electronics and AC (a must in AZ), very stylish; seats are short, lack thigh support. Exterior: good curb appeal. Large turning radius; front bumper scrapes every driveway. Visibility is more sporty than sedan like. 0-25 is good, 25-80 is smooth and superb. Handles brilliantly, feels safe. Feel the road - rides best with (costly) Michelins - everything else detracts from sporty feel. This is a firm, not cushy ride. Quieter than an Accord, but more road noise than a Mercedes or Camry. Everyone likes driving this car. Smallish trunk, rear seats do not fold down, so, not good for moving stuff. If you can afford it, I doubt you can find a better car.


Best Features

Very responsive handling, excellent AC, 24 mpg, excellent acceleration.


Worst Features

Rear seats fold down to increase cargo space.

2006 Acura TL 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Just bought this 06 with ten thousand miles. Great car, ample power, a little too fun to drive, (hard to get where you are going when you never want to get out of the car), sleek design. After researching I found that this car holds its value better than ANYTHING in its class, beats Mercedes and BMW, and offers so much more with Honda reliability. Rear visibility is not good, thinking the back up sensors may be worth the money considering what bumpers cost. People complain of the back end design of the car so I added a spoiler, looks great. Got it for my 45th birthday, great investment for the young at heart.


Best Features

Power, handling, braking overall style of the car.


Worst Features

Make back up camera and sensors standard. Aux. Jack in place of cassette deck, and far lessor vehicles come with auto on/off for the headlights and really should be standard on the TL. Bridgestone tires are noisy and look cheap. I've been told to buy Michelins for replacements.

Review

I love driving this car. I get to 80 MPH in no time. This car is so smooth and the drive is awesome. The brakes are great! I may be an Acura buyer for life. The car is the best of both worlds - luxury yet sporty. Great car for a young adult.


Best Features

Navigation. Bluetooth. I love that there is a cassette, CD and satellite.


Worst Features

Wish traffic icons were on the nav system. Cheaper fuel grade and fuel effeciency. Improve the doors. They always swing back and hurt you. The audio volume could be louder.

2006 Acura TL 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Great car with great value for money. Car is loaded with awesome standard features but most important thing is reliability and performance and TL is best in both. During an emergency I have to drive it to Canada in world record 6 feet snow and snowstorm and I must thank TL for reliably taking to my destination. Just take it up for routine maintenance and you will be fine. Very silent car....in the same price range and same power, BMW 328i does not provides even half the features. but then BMW is BMW but anyways...always remember...its great great value for your money. Don't forget...its features are so user friendly that you don't even need to read User Manual even once! A must test drive!


Best Features

Blue tooth, lumbar support, audio system, flexible arm rest for driver, ac control, tire pressure monitoring system, computer, maintenance alarm system, memory seats


Worst Features

1. Flipped back seat for more storage space. 2. MP3 jack 3. 17-19 MPG on city roads is too less although it is awesome on highways (30-35 MPG)
