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

Review

Coming from a 08 TL. Test drove many times both AWD & FWD w/ tech. Got a mixed feeling like other 08 TL owners did. Technology beats other competitors like G37 or 08 TL. But not sure why such an advanced car has to skip auto-dimmed side mirrors, ventilated seats, rain-sensing wiper, etc. On a 08' TL I don't have to pay for the tech package to get ELS sound system and the perforated leather. Still a very good car for the price level, but option-wise, you want to ask yourself what's really important to you vs. what it has to offer.

Best Features

Nav, ELS sound system, handling on SH- AWD when pushing it, aggressive look and feel, interior room (better than 5- series).

Worst Features

SH-AWD too sensitive and stiff. Better OEM rim and tires (avoid Turanza EL400). I would say replace the stock tires with better ones on SH-AWD if you care about needless stiffness. Larger trunk size. Add those essential tech options back. Less plastic.
