2009 Acura TL Sedan 4dr Sedan w/Tech Package (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Just leased a TL w/Tech about 4 days ago and all I can say is WOW! I love this car so much, it is powerful, roomy, and has very nice styling. I get head turns everywhere I go. I got the WDP/Taupe and I just love it. The NAV and Bluetooth are so easy to use and the NAV screen is really clear. This is definitely the best car for the money. I have owned Acura's before and they did a really good job on this new TL. I love every minute I'm driving in it.


Best Features

NAV, Bluetooth, push-button start/stop, styling.


Worst Features

Power tilt/telescopic steering wheel and power rear sunshade would be nice.

2009 Acura TL Sedan SH-AWD 4dr Sedan AWD w/Tech Package (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Awesome style, fun to drive - especially the AWD. Ride is firm but not rough at all. Interior is super quiet while on freeway etc. Awesome build quality, drives perfect...and may be the first vehicle I have purchased which will not require a re-visit to the dealer for any mechanical, balancing, alignment, etc. Every other car I have purchased in the last 20 years had to be taken back...Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, GM. Love it, love it, love it. Awesome in black!!


Best Features

AWD, perfect steering, super fast acceleration, solid build quality, interior and exterior styling, sporty but not rough ride. Beats all other vehicles tested in my opinion including G37. Sound system is top notch. All the tech toys included!


Worst Features

Add rain sensing wipers.

2009 Acura TL Sedan SH-AWD 4dr Sedan AWD w/Tech Package (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Upgraded from a Volvo S80 that was 8 years old. The car is a great ride, very responsive. Glued to the road on turns. Love all the technology. And while I know that previous TL owners by and large hate the styling...I'm good with it. From the side I think it's awesome. I've waited 5 months to put this review up...I have no real complaints except the ride is a bit firm for my tastes after the Volvo and I'd expect better than 22mpg these days...


Best Features

NAV system, MP3 hookup, Hard Drive, rear camera, keyless entry/start, AWD.


Worst Features

Soften the ride a little...feel too many cracks in the pavement. Better fuel economy. Don't require premium fuel. Rain sensing wipers.

2009 Acura TL Sedan 4dr Sedan w/Tech Package (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have owned my new TL w/ Tech for almost 3 weeks and I have to say that I am really enjoying this car. I was leasing a 2006 Infiniti G35x and was contemplating a new one. After driving the new TL I was no longer interested in the G. The TL has a new exterior design that turns heads. The interior of the TL blows the Infiniti away. Everything feels solid and of very high quality. I have also been getting better gas mileage than I got in my old G35x. There is no other car in this price range that gives you the quality and the amenities found in the TL.


Best Features

440 Watt 10 speaker surround sound stereo, Bluetooth connectivity, 12 gigabyte hard disk drive, push button start, smooth yet sporty ride, rear backup camera.


Worst Features

Rain sensing wipers, power adjustment for the steering wheel and steering column.

Review

The SH-AWD model is not a car...it's an automobile. The seats hug your body. The steering wheel grips your hands. The sound system is an on-demand DJ. And the power is to be compared to a 200 meter sprinter...not super fast... but fast. But, the coolest thing about the car is its smarts. My wife keeps her key in her bag. She attempted to put her bag with the key in the trunk and the car beeped and popped back open the truck. Oh yes, I am most certainly enjoying my 2009 TL SH-AWD. :)


Best Features

The sound system. It has so many options to play music (Hard Drive, USB for (IPOD/MP3/flash drive), XM, FM, AM). It's a personal DJ. I never have to worry on the trips when I need to hear some good music. :)


Worst Features

If I had to improve I would make the automatic a 6 speed.
