Great Car but Some Flaws
By cooldiesel on


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


I bought my 2005 Acura TL with about 90K miles on it. For the most part the car is fantastic, feels very high quality and rides excellent. At 80 MPH - typical cruising speed in Los Angeles when not stuck in traffic - the car feels as if it is on rails, and is very quite.

Some people
on internet forums have complained about squeeks and rattles from the windows in
the doors when driving. I have found that this is true, but not to the point where it is a problem.

The 6-speed transmission model which I have is probably not the best. The shifter is clunky, and the engine not suited to a manual since it has very little low-end torque.

Best Features

- Ride quality - Quite cabin - Body design - Smooth engine with decent gas mileage

Worst Features

- Improvement to 6-speed transmission model - Better interior build quality
