Replaced '03 TL-S and while I miss the power of the V6, the trade off of better handling and trimmer size was worth it. Good power above 3000 RPM, responsive manumatic makes it easy to stay in the power band when needed. Build quality is flawless. Fuel mileage has been the only disappointment-only 24MPG, about the same as the heavier more powerful TL. Overall, I am very happy with this car, and think it is a great value.
Steering accurate & perfectly weighted, great ride/handling balance, smooth transmission with precise manual shifts, fully equipped--heated leather seats, moonroof, Bluetooth.
Memory setting for mirrors, programmable door locks, more power below 3000 RPM
