I've always liked and admired Honda products. Acuras are the top of their line. I consider the TL SH AWD the best that they know how to make. It's fast. It handles great. very confidence inspiring. Is comfortable. Literally, the seats fit me like a glove. Makes great sports sedan sounds under the hood. Compared it to a MB C300 4matic (seems anemic in comparison), Infiniti G37x (my 2nd choice, didn't like interior or seats), BMW 3 and 5 series (at least $10K more cost), Audi A4/5 (my 3rd choice, weak engines and costly with options), a Taurus SHO (ponderous feeling, and $46K as tested...WOW). The TL SH AWD seemed to be the perfect blend of performance, handling, and comfort.
-world class build quality and materials -performance -handling -distinctive styling (no "me too" look) -features -comfort (especially the seats in the SH AWD) -stereo -great resale value
-rear seat fold down instead of "ski" pass through
