2008 Acura TL Type-S 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I drove 1993 Honda Accord LX Coupe for 15 years, 400,000 miles. and I traded in for this '08 Acura TL. I really liked the accord and it gave me no pain. But this TL has been proven to be a Rattle box. It makes rattling sound almost everywhere. I went in to the dealer about 4 times in one month starting 2 days after purchasing the car and stayed at the dealer for 2 weeks total in the first month. The first, sunroof problems and engine check light on and drive light blinking not shifting from 3rd to 4th gear, etc. It wasted a lot of my time and gave me so much stress. And all they gave me was the extended warranty. After the first month, I had to keep going back to dealer
Smooth acceleration when the RPM is over 2500. Design.
Acura has to improve build quality on this car. The finish is the worst. (Body line is off, get rid of rattling sounds), has to improve power at low RPM under 2000. Customer service. leather quality. Overall build quality is the POOREST!
