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

Review

Engine is smooth and powerful, but produces some torque steer on the FWD model. Without the AWD option its easily the best value compared to competitors. This car is a geek's best friend. The interior is full of innovative technologies such as a nav system that routes around bad weather and automatic climate control that tracks the sun's position in the sky. The stereo is impressive, but the built-in hard drive is limited to playing ripped CDs, no directly loading mp3 files. The car is very easy to control with electronic steering and downshifting the transmission for engine braking is extremely smooth. But it would be nice if Honda moved to a 6-speed or better to match Toyota.

Best Features

Engine performance, best of breed navigation system, build quality, stereo, perceived reliability

Worst Features

Six speed transmission, full-size spare tire, ventilated seats, rain-sensing wipers, RWD, cleaner interior design
