A Fun and Comfortable Ride
By kkrtrek on
2008 Acura TL 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
Traded in our 10-month old Civic for the TL because the tall driver (me) could not get comfortable in the driver's seat. Otherwise, the Civic was the perfect car. The TL solved the comfort problem with very comfortable, adjustable seats. It is fun to drive, easy to handle, and just an all around "nice car." Was looking for a somewhat sporty sedan for the family of three. Neither the wife nor I wanted the soft ride of a Camry or a Lexus(?), nor the harsh ride of a true sports car. For us, the TL hit the sweet spot in the middle. Still getting used to the "luxury" aspects of owning this car.
Carbon bronze pearl exterior mated with taupe interior. Spiffy and classy. Sound system. Memory seats. Backup camera.
Better mileage. On a trip, got 28 true MPG driving very conservatively, 60-63 (Trip computer gives MPG about 8% too high). Honda has a larger 3.5 liter engine in the Accord that gets better mileage. Folding rear seat (at least half) and regular fuel, like the Honda. Turning radius quite large.
