Purchased new near end of MY. Our 2nd TL-S, and this one is much better than 1st Gen. It is much sportier, especially handling and brakes, but less comfortable ride and lower fuel economy. Brembo front brakes wear much faster than standard pads and are expensive. Styling and features are at top of class and reliability has been perfect.
Steering and brake feel are excellent, making it fun to drive in the curves. Very strong engine and transmission. Roomy and comfortable, and audio/nav system is excellent.
parchment seating surfaces do not stand up to wear as well as ebony. Trunk lift over is a bit wide and tall. Throttle is a bit stiff and overly sensitive at tip-in.
