2012 Acura TL Technology Package 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
This is my second TL. I gave up my 2000 with close to 200k
miles on it, because it needed some minor repairs, but also because my family wanted me to switch it out for something newer. It would have run much longer- no major problems in all that time. The new car is a great value. Only paid $2500 more for it than the 2000. Good news- rock solid, better handling, excellent stereo, very comfortable. And, of course, the fact that it is a reliable Honda. But here's where they dropped the ball- too many buttons, incomprehensible logic in the controls, downgraded nav system (compared to the ease and logic of my 2000 version). And the trunk- what were they thinking? Can't get too much in.
The promise of Honda reliability
Reasonable gas mileage (24+)
Honda- what happened to the ergonomics?
Nav Unit- Why did they copy the BMW I paddle?
Bluetooth- still can't get it to stay hooked up (could be Apple, though)
