Perfect Acura mixture
By Paul Ferny on


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


Have basic model in automatic. Driven for 4 yrs now. Excellent car - good performance and build quality. Highs - quality feel, good acceleration (in manual mode in auto), good mpg on highway (about 30), sticks to road akin to European car. Lows - initial tires were Michelins and awful - rapid wear and no grip in rain or snow (bloody dangerous after 20k on slick/poor quality roads in frosty Winnipeg), mpg in city not great (about 15-18).

Best Features

Build quality, safety (with replacement tires), sporty suspension and easily delivered acceleration for over-taking. Added cold air intake ($200) - did improve mpg on highway and changed exhaust note under high demand from sounding like a strangled cat to that of a roaring lion!

Worst Features

AWD and decent ultra high performance all season radials would have been great additions.
