2013 Acura TL Sedan SH-AWD 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
It's surprising to me that Acura no longer makes these beauties. Not only is it nice to look at, it's even better to drive. Great comfort and even better performance. The TL hugs curves like nobody's business! All weather = no problem. Great in snow and rain! I would buy another if they still made them.
The only thing I noticed that bothers me is the transmission shifts from first to second to quickly. It's better with faster takeoff. Otherwise this is a great car and I plan to lease a 2016 before the lease ends in March. I also had a 2010 TL that I loved.
2013 Acura TL Sedan SH-AWD w/Technology Package 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
After 10 years of Infiniti G35 sedans (2003 and 2006 models, 6MT), I switched to Acura SH-AWD with the Technology Package (the only configuration I could get manual transmission!) in late March, 2013. The TL gives up a little of the visceral,sporty feel of the G, but gains in overall refinement and all weather capability. The TL is is a substantially larger car (6" longer, and 4" wider than the G), and hence feels less tossable than the G. However, it has very fine handling and a composed ride. I love my car, it has been absolutely trouble free, and feels extraordinarily competent. It is a compellingly good value in the upscale segment.
Ride and handling are buttoned down, not flashy.
Excellent creature comforts - seating, music system, room, navigation, back-up camera.
Very slick manual shifter, and low effort pedals (brake and clutch).
Relatively low maintenance.
All in all, a unique car!
Not entirely sold on the look of the rear end, though it is growing on me!
A skosh more trunk space would help in making it an even more complete touring sedan.
Appeal to Acura: Please do not drop the manuals!:)

The TL is probably the worse car in the market, Acura should close their business forever! This is super super bumpy and noise ride. I can feel every bumps on the road even tiny bumps and there are rattles from center console when go over bumps. The suspensions also make thumping and popping sound when go over bumps .The engine runs rough after just 10k mils. What a horrible ownership of this car. Can't wait to get rid of this junk. What a waste of money. I should do more research before i buy this car. First and last Acura! Do not buy any Acura cars!!!
