2007 Acura TL Type-S 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Tried all the competition and chose this car, for it's the most balanced auto in terms of price, quality, engine, transmission, power, options, etc. Nice car no doubt!


Favorite Features

Of course, this sofisticated voice command, HFL, and navigation with the rear view camera; tape / CD, sound quality, etc.


Suggested Improvements

I wish the front bumper and grille were made of a better qualtiy material. Also, a couple of more inches of head room and maybe shoulder room as well, why not? For 6' tall guys like myself it's not exactly comfortable.. Also, the wheels look ok, but not really aggressive and sporty as they should be

2007 Acura TL 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

With 12,000 miles on the TL: Good points - the car runs better now - improvements in both gas mileage (31 MPG straight highway trip) and a smoother shifting transmission (too much shift shock before). Bad points - the car developed various squeaks and rattles over the last 11 months - glovebox, center speaker, driver vent, instrument cluster, etc. - most of them now fixed. The colder weather has brought an annoying driver's door & window rattle. The interior headliner (roof) was replaced twice due to its two layers separating. Also, knowing the Acura service department employees on a first name basis is getting old. I prefer just oil change visits like with my previous 2 Acuras.


Favorite Features

Same as before.


Suggested Improvements

Getting rid of all the squeaks and rattles - priceless! More attention to detail with respect to interior build, assembly & quality control would be appreciated. Squeaks and rattles are extremely annoying as are frequent dealer visits. Acura, please take note for your upcoming 2009 redesign.

2007 Acura TL 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

After 10 yrs and 145,000 mi I sold my 528 BMW for a TL. First things first IMO the BMW E39 is superior to the TL in all dynamic driving categories period. But having said that the TL is still a very fine car. Reasonably quick, stylish, comfortable, quiet (no rattles here) and good gas mileage (got almost 31 mpg on our last trip). But the TL does have issues. First is the transmission, under normal everyday driving it's flawless but try some spirited driving and it's slow to kick down and the computer gets confused hunting for the right gear. Second is the suspension, it's jittery and on less than smooth roads the front will bounce, this is not a good thing, especially in a 'sports sedan'.


Favorite Features

The entire package - a solid 'sporty car' at a reasonable price. The car comes 'standard' with every option I would want including a great stereo and the nav system is excellent.


Suggested Improvements

Retune the suspension, correct the bouncing and realize a 'sport suspension' doesn't need to be brittle, maybe that will happen with the new TL slated for 2009. Get rid of the 'slush box automatics' and move to a "DSG auto gearbox" like the ones used by Audi & VW. They are amazing!

2007 Acura TL Type-S 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

11,890 miles into my TL Type-S Automatic. Interior rattles are driving me nuts!! They come out of nowhere! Interior does scratch very easily. Car squeaks. Suspension or something from underneath the car? Not sure but getting it checked out. I think it's the suspension. Seat memory settings don't always work correctly. All station presets vanished on me a few times and came back the next day? Ghosts? Other than that the car is awesome! Compliments everywhere! Real rocketship! 286 HP!! Hwy I am getting 29 MPG. Overall AVG 23 MPG. I think that's pretty good!


Favorite Features

Navigation, back-up camera, Bremo big brakes, exhaust tone, reliability, sound system, aggressive looks.


Suggested Improvements

Xenon fog lights, xenon license plate light, stock TL-S wheels are ugly, keyless entry, Bluetooth, AWD, heated passenger seat back, cheap plastic interior, fold down back seat, stop the interior rattles.
