This segment is filled with excellent vehicles, but the TL stands out based on its long list of standard features and reasonable price. Mine is the base model, which is just as quick as the AWD due to its lighter weight and gets better mileage to boot. I agree the front grille is not Acura's best work, but I found a replacement in the aftermarket which is a huge improvement. While not a true sports sedan, the car handles well for its size and intended use and the motor is a jewel - smooth and powerful. Acura builds a quality automobile and I have found the resale values to be excellent. Guess that's why I have owned 22 of them so far...
Price, performance, long standard feature list, interior quality and overall fit and finish.
If anyone at Acura is reading this, please listen to all the people out here complaining about your new corporate grille style!!!
