2007 Acura TL 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
First, let me just say that I have been a staunch fan of the BMW 3 Series for years, but I have to say that they have lost me with the newest model, sedan and coupe. Specifically, the interior is low rent\ugly, and for $35K+ it shouldn't be. So, I test drove the TL and, wow, what a car! Granted, it's not quite the road handler that a 3 Series is, but it is just as good or better in every other respect. Build quality, check! Ride quality, check! Interior space\comfort, better! Acceleration, better! Value, much better! A similarly equipped 325i would have cost me $7,500 more. That's some serious dough! Bottom line; BMW lost me, but Acura found me!
Included options (HandsFreeLink\bluetooth, HIDs, acceleration, XM satellite radio, 6 disc CD\MP3 changer), interior ambiance lighting and gauges, optional voice recognition on the GPS, huge LCD screen for GPS and radio display, back up camera. Need I say more?
Broken pavement can thump through a little, but it's not a deal breaker.
