2007 Acura TL 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
I cross shopped all the others in this class (Lexus, Infiniti, even BMW and Mercedes) I couldn't get anywhere close to the options for the money. This car comes loaded for less. The build quality is great, the engineering in this vehicle is superb. They thought of everything. Every surface has a pleasant texture, the switches and knobs operate perfectly with weighted balance. The Navi is a must, it transforms the experience in the car. Others just have a moving map of sorts, this becomes the control center for the car. Audio, climate, everything. You can use conventional buttons, touch screen or voice commands. Handles and drives well for a larger car. Very sharp design inside and out.
I enjoy the touch screen navi and voice activation of just about everything. Lots of little things, like the way the doors are hinged, they will close by themselves once you get the hang of it. Very slick design. Window/roof control from the(switchblade) keyfob. ELS is the best I have heard in a car.
Not much to list here, I would have preferred if all of the interior lights had the same brilliant blue look as the gauges. Keyless operation, push button start and door lock/unlock. USB input instead of only AUX. All very minor design choices (not mistakes) I'm sure to help drive the cost down.
