I bought Type S in Feb 2007. The car's engine is great, acceleration is superb, looks are great. However, interior material quality is one of the worst I have seen in new cars. Too much rattling. I had a rattling sound coming from behind steering wheel and even the dealer couldn't figure it out. More rattle from the middle by cup holder. If the windows are down, they rattle as if some screws are loose in the door panel. I am seriously thinking about trading it in. I have been a Acura fan for years but this TL Type S experience has left a bad taste in my mouth and probably never go back to Acura.
Engine acceleration, nav system, braking, looks.
Rattling from everywhere. Get rid of fake carbon and put some real material in there (wood, like G35). Automatic intermittent wipers, start/stop button, FOB.
