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


This is our 3rd TL after owning the 02 & 06. Ride and comfort are excellent. After looking at Cadillac, Lexus, Infinity & BMW this is the best quality for the $$. The Tech package is outstanding, we love it. The ride improvement is excellent. Drove the 4-wheel version, yes it has more HP and is faster but you give up the smooth ride for the firmer sport ride. The 06 TL was the best road car we have ever had, can't wait to get the 09 on the road. The seats are better than Lexus. The rear leg room is much better than the 06. I do miss the blue dash lights that was in the 06 TL. It's a buyers market, got a great deal. Like the new lines, but the front end needs to grow on you.

Favorite Features

Tech package with live weather updates, traffic updates, radar, + new features. Love the idea of the HDD to record CD's. Great audio system, CD Audio. Great location of the Nav system and control knob. Better placement of controls on steering wheel. Better turning ratio, tighter. Side profile.

Suggested Improvements

Tone down the front end. Bring back the blue dash lights. Dash design. Circles. Chrome on the wheels like the 4-wheel drive model. Variable heat switch for the front seats like Lexus Cool air for the front seats. Cargo netting should be standard. Dealer class on the Tech package.
