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'.


Best 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.


Worst Features

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!


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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.

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


Review

10,000 miles into my silver TL Type-S with 6 speed manual, and I figure I would give you all a follow-up. First, the bad: rattles in the door and steering column. Tsk, tsk in a near 40-grand sports sedan. Interior materials scratch real easily, and dashboard is starting to lose its color really quickly (from dark gray to milky gray). Torque-steer is getting old now. The good: this thing should be called a muscle-sedan instead of a sports sedan, because that's the demeanor it has. Big, mean looking, mean sounding, and fast. Handling is second only to BMW. Interior is very comfortable, and very spacious.


Best Features

Compliments everywhere I go. Engine is a trip to run up to the redline. Slick shifting manual gearbox. Beautiful, comfy interior. Supportive seats. User friendly infotainment center. Minimal usage of chrome inside and out.


Worst Features

Rattles! Interior plastics scratch easy and fade quickly. Uneconomic fuel economy. Too much oversteer and too wide of a turning radius. Needs AWD. Difficult to justify price when compared to the new Accord.

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


Review

I had a 2003 Type S and loved that car's ride, so thought that in purchasing the 2007 Type S I'd be just as pleased. The new Type S has unbelieveable power and acceleration and handles like a nimble sport car. All in all a very exciting and sporty ride. The sporty suspension does make the ride a little harsh. Almost every imperfection in the road gets transmitted through the steering wheel. The comfort is great and I love the navigation system and telematics. However, the interior rattles drive me crazy. No excuse for a luxury sport sedan of Acura's caliber to have this problem.


Best Features

Power and handling. The exterior styling turns heads, especially the charcol grey wheels. The navigation system and telematics are first rate.


Worst Features

Key fob is huge. Wish it had a keyless system like the RL. Improve the interior build quality to eliminate the rattles.
