2008 Acura TL 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


I researched this car at length while also considering the Lexus IS 350, BMW 3 series and the Infiniti G. This car definitely represents the best combination of size, comfort, sportiness and value for the $$. Like a previous post I too was at first disappointed by the car's jerky transmission, however after a few months of ownership this car's drive seemed to transform (or I got more accustomed) to very smooth, fun car to drive. After testing both the standard TL and the Type S, without question the Type S is a vastly superior automobile and is worth the extra two or three grand.

Best Features

Speed, Balance of size, sportiness, comfort and value (especially when compared to competitors.) Nav System, Sound System (even the bizarre tape player, I can now play my '80's tapes!)

Worst Features

The cars turning radius is ridiculously bad. Gas mileage could be better.

Just got this car with 30K miles on it...what's up with the jerky trans? Not sure I can live with it!
