It's a Honda
By John S on

Vehicle

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

Review

Moving from 6 years with 5-series BMWs to an Acura TL requires a major adjustment. The TL is a well-built auto with nice interior design and complementary touches. It's a bit light, and coupled with the regular skinny tires, provides a harsh, shaky ride over rough pavement. Go for the better tires. I don't agree completely with the car being described as having sporty handling, especially as a front-driver, as it pushes through the turns. But it does have good acceleration to get you safely on the highway, but at a cost in fuel economy (averaging 23 mpg overall). Sunroof operates nicely, but admits cool air in the winter with the shade open and roof closed.

Favorite Features

Car paint and interior finish is excellent. Seat positioning good. Controls OK, and Bluetooth compatible. Bright high intensity discharge headlights, with turn indicators on side view mirrors. Plenty of room in trunk for the clubs.

Suggested Improvements

Ditch the tape player. Make XM radio channel selection easier. Design rear seats that fold down, not just a ski slot. Get rid of the cheap plastic - too many twittering noises. Have better tires standard. Needs steering wheel heaters, and a fatter wheel as well.
