Best FWD sport sedan out there!
By John V. on


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


And it's almost the best 30-40k sport sedan period. Being from the Midwest, and only having one car, RWD wasn't an option since we get something called snow which doesn't agree with RWD cars too well. Thus, I settled on the TL, and don't think I would have been happier w/ any other car. Acceleration is very linear, and the TL is extremely stable at 80 mph, and fairly quite at such speeds, which could be a dangerous combination. Torque steer is almost never an issue. Great sound system, excellent interior amenities, exceptional fuel economy (I've gotten 33 on some highway jaunts, although around town can be disappointing). If only the 09 TL looked as suave, I'd get that instead of an 08 TypeS

Best Features

Engine to start; always ready, and very willing to go, plus it can be decent on fuel economy. Next to that is the styling, followed by sound system, and probably the navigation system.

Worst Features

Some panels were a bit loose, at first, but dealer fixed the couple that wouldn't stay put. Door stops only have two or three positions that they'll lock into, which gets frustrating in close quarters.
