2005 Acura TL Sedan 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

There is a reason why this car is a top pick by Consumer Reports. For the money you are not going to do much better. The vast array of incredible standard features is just amazing, it's an awesome car to drive and seems to do everything you could expect for a car of this price. Sure the new 3 series handles better, but you'd have to spend $40K+ to equal the features of this car, and unless you live on a race track it isn't going to make any difference. This is a fast, luxury car that does everything you expect and more. I love mine and if I had to do it all over again would make the same pick.


Best Features

Ride, handling, performance, features, stereo, interior, everything.


Worst Features

Would be nice if it ran on regular or got more MPG around town. I'd also like a jack for an MP3 player or MP3 capability on disk. Seriously though as an overall package you can't complain.

2005 Acura TL Sedan 3.2 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I LOVE my TL. Best car I have owned. Its fast and very responsive. The interior is amazing and very user friendly. Acura's navigation is by far the best on the market hands down. I love XM radio and the surround sound 5.1 DVD audio system. Researching all the other cars in its class from BMW to Infiniti to Audi, The Acura TL is by far the most bang for the buck. If your looking into this car.....Get IT!!!


Best Features

Navigation XM Radio 5.1 DVD Audio System 3.2 v6 - Fun and Fast


Worst Features

Auto lights feature for when it gets dark and rain sensors. All wheel drive but not necessary. Traffic sensing navigation like the RL. Should just be a program upgrade considering the XM radio is in there. OnSTAR like in the CL and RL.

Review

Had the car for 9 months now and I've put 17K miles on it... now that's love. Fun to drive, comfy, and can never go without navigation again. Only design flaws are if you don't get the window visors (rain guards, whatever you call them) you can't even crack your windows when it's raining because the water pours into your car and right into your power window switches. Also, heard a lot of complaints about noise in the dash while driving. I just invested some money to add additional speakers so I don't hear anything. I guess anyone who drives around with no radio will hear some kind of noise... so turn up your radio and enjoy the ride!!!!


Best Features

Navigation and surround sound DVD. Also 6 speed manual trasmission sure adds to the fun.


Worst Features

The water coming into the windows can surely be improved. Also noise in dash... I have heard it but doesn't bother me much but have heard many complaints from others who own an 04 TL.

Review

Overall this is a great car. Fun to drive, powerful, plenty of standard features and excellent design inside and out. I fell in love with this car the first time I passed one on the road. After lusting 1 1/2 years I finally made my purchase. A pleasure to drive.


Best Features

Bluetooth, Navigation, DVD-A surround sound.


Worst Features

Rattles. Havent had a ton but the few I have had drove me nutty until they were addressed. Drivers seat not as comfortable as I would like. I understand the sporty look but the padding on the seat bottom is thin. Overall I would make my purchase again with no hesitation.
