I have had my 2012 TL for a year now.
I bought it as a CPO for $28K...4K miles on it.
I traded in a BMW 328I.
Ok, it is a nice car with a lot of options.
The interior is nice and very modern.
Been on a few long trips and it is very comfortable.
Where I have issues is with it's performance.
Two things right off the bat, 1) The transmission, second gear to be exact seems sluggish on take off.
It really drags the the engine down and makes for a jerky ride.
Granted, coming from a BMW...the Acura's performance is not even close.
But it makes up for it in other areas.
2) The steering is not sport-tuned and you will feel torque-steer if you get in the gas.
Feels like a Buick at times.

Transmission needs attention.
Tighten up the steering a little!
Get rid of the Bridgstone tires.
I have had bad experiances with Bridgstones before.
They are loud and always need to be balanced.
