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.
Same as before.
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.
