2009 Acura TL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I can say that this is the first car I have ever purchased that I love. Great styling (not boring). Very quick, sweet interior with plenty of room, I am 6'4" and have no problem fitting in the front or back. Decent gas mileage for the power you get. Yes a Honda Accord V6 may be similar but they are a totally different car. Drove the Accord and found it boring (every family has one). Get looks in this car all the time. This car looks like a $50,000.00 vehicle. Great value for the price compared to BMW, Lexus, Nissan Maxium, Audi, Mercedes. If you want a car that will have style and is reliable and a fun drive that not everyone on the block has this is the car for you.


Favorite Features

Looks, performance, price, interior styling, WOW factor.


Suggested Improvements

None that I can think of right now.

Review

Do not try to contact customer service - they just say well that's the way it is or we will note it. Not try to fix a $40,000 car. By the way you have to call California time to a 800# to a six digit ext. To get voice mail. Send them a letter they get it. Send a letter to the pres of Honda they get it. Tell them you own three of them they say sorry not nice


Favorite Features

power and stereo/sound system


Suggested Improvements

ride rear shock and springs to hard - edelbroc makes a shock that rides easier as you bounce in the city and stiffens on the highway - gee they are both in California maybe they will talk - Not customer service just says all is well and that is the way it is - do they think I would buy another not

Review

I just turned in my '08 TL and leased a new '10 TL. What a difference. The "08 looked great but was uncomfortable and not a fun drive. The '10 is like night and day. Very plush inside, ride is great and seems like its more powerful and smooth. The steering feels a bit loose in the '10 and it doesn't handle as tightly as the '08 but so far overall much more comfortable to be in. Acura quality is evident everywhere. Not crazy about the styling but with the right color choice its more than fine. Good deal on the new lease as well.

Review

I am on my second year with my tl, and I as very impressed with the quality, and the smooth 3.5 engine and I am not that impressed with the manual auto shifter, as sometimes the transmission shifts two times, and this car should have a six speed manual available instead of making you buy the over 40,000 dollar all wheel drive with the technology package, and the six speed should be available in the tsx also as it has the same engine that the tl has as a option, and this five speed just is not a good fit as it holds the engine back, and we love this car, and we drove a mdx for a few days, and now this is a real car, as this car really sounds so good with the 3.7 engine singing with a big smooth burst.


Favorite Features

we love the hunkered down look of this car as it is so sleek,and powerful,and we are getting 28 mpg.did not like the front end at first,but i grew to really like it, and i don't really like the type of leather on the dashboard, as it looks like really cheap. love the dual exhaust, and this car is awesome


Suggested Improvements

the ride is way too stiff as every one complains about this so Honda you should soften the ride some,and i never get tired of looking at this car, and get with it, Honda where is a really good type-s as i had a 2001 type-s and i feel this tl will go around the type s on the top end, as it is sleeker
