I purchased the car after cross- shopping G37 and the German cars, and I'm glad I did. Fantastic performance and comfort. Solid, quiet ride. Corners like it's on rails. Shifting is crisp and positive. World class audio system. Beautiful interior. The SH-AWD has to be experienced to be fully appreciated - it's a technological wonder. I've never received so many compliments on a new car. This is easily the best value in an upscale sports sedan. The only way to beat it (maybe) would be to spend at least $20K more. Add in Acura reliability and service and the TL SH- AWD is a no-brainer. I love this car!
Acceleration and cornering ability. Interior styling, comfort and outstanding audio (ELS) system. Build quality. Exterior styling. Fit and finish.
Slightly larger outside mirrors. Another mpg or two would be good, but I'm averaging 22 or so on a brand new engine, so it's pretty good, considering the performance capabilities.
