2006 Acura TL 4dr Sedan w/Nav System (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
I've almost always have had a BMW or Honda product in my automotive stable.
Most recently, I had a 1995 BMW M3.
Loved the power and handling but hated the maintenance.
I also leased a 2006 Honda Accord SE-V6 and owned a 2003 Accord EX-V6 with navigation.
Both were very reliable and quick but handling was crappy and interior was blase'.
Sheet metal seemed like aluminum foil.
BMW's always seemed more solid.
Recently, I purchased a 2006 Acura TL with navigation with high mileage for a paltry sum of money.
I must say that it is in an entirely different league than the Honda.
Quieter and better built than Honda.
Really gives the BMW a great run for the money.
Reliability, edgy styling, bang for the buck.
That oversteer is something that keeps me thinking about a BMW in the back of my mind.
Could likely need better front struts, springs and sway bar to mitigate the oversteer.
Well, I guess Acura will never use the slogan of "Ultimate Driving Machine" except maybe when the NSX is considered.
