2012 Acura TL 4dr Sedan w/Technology Package (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Recently purchased a 2012 TL with Tech.
For the price I paid the TL presented the best overall value.
Yes, I did consider all the other players in this market.
I did not want to pay extra for a European badge such as MB or BMW and I have concerns with their reliability .
Audi's spotty reliability was a killer.
Couldn't justify the price of the Lexus which I find a bit sedate. Liked the Infiniti but find the styling a bit outdated.
Certainly, the other vehicles I considered may better the TL in some areas and the TL may better them in other areas.
I do know, having driven the TL for a couple of months, my appreciation of the TL continues to grow.
I like just about everything.
The interior quality, V-6 power, paddle shifters, hard drive for music, seats, and quiet ride are standouts, especially for the price I paid.
I know many so-called independent reviews criticize the sytling of the TL but I really don't get it.
I find the exterior as adjusted for the 2012 model, particularly the back, to be very good.
The many compliments I have received for the TL seem to bear this out.
Like most vehicles, an increase in miles per gallon would be good.
So would being able to use regular gasoline.
