2009 Acura TL 4dr Sedan w/Tech Package (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
This car is nothing short of awesome. I love the Acura pricing policy. Just two choices: AWD/FWD and tech/non-tech. Unbelievable how much quality and technology you get for ~$35k. In size, features, comfort and appointments, the car is competitive with mid sized sports sedans costing $17-20k more (think: 5 series, E-class, A6). It drives like a dream. Steering is razor sharp, suspension is just the perfect combination of compliant and firm (the SH-AWD package was too firm for my taste). Real time traffic, weather, Zagat restaurant ratings/descriptions, nav system and screen that is truly state of the art (MUCH better than any of the Germans or the G35/37), audio system that has no peer, etc.
Nav screen clarity is like going from a 13" black and white TV to a 54" 1080p HDTV, razor sharp handling and power, interior fit and finish, seat comfort (both front and back), audio system with full ipod integration and hard disc memory for CD's and MP3 files, xenon headlights.
