2006 Acura TL Sedan 4dr Sedan w/Nav System (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My wife needed to replace her aging Jag so we went looking and she drove a 2 year old Acura TL with 47K that was in dealer's lot. It was as sturdy as rock - no squeaks, rattles, or signs of aging. And the very best Nav System on any car I've seen. After driving the competitors, we returned to the dealer and bought a brand new TL. After 5 months, no problems, no regrets. I'm the sportscar type (S2000) but I keep finding reasons to drive the Acura. Just wish it was RWD - on hard acceleration from very low speed I can feel the torque steer. Other than that, no complaints.


Best Features

Fantastic and usable Navigation system. Superb sound system, excellent driving position. Cool blue instrument lights. Very, very comfortable.


Worst Features

Better auto trans gear ratios for city driving, steering wheel toggles for the trans., auto headlights.

2006 Acura TL Sedan 4dr Sedan w/Nav System (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We loved the 2003, but wanted to get the navigation system and the blue tooth capability. 2006 has more power and more air bags. Great XM radio. great service at the dealer Front head rests are too big blocking view out the side and rear. Passenger seat is too low for short folks. Ride is OK on smooth road, but rough on broken pavement.


Best Features

power, handling, great leather, dealer service, XM radio


Worst Features

smaller headrests, return to smoother suspension, detune engine to run on regular grade fuel. make passenger seat 8 way adjustable.

2006 Acura TL Sedan 4dr Sedan w/Performance Tires, Nav System (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Second Acura I've owned. Test drove the competion before I bought but Acura was at the head of the pack. Instrumentation is easy to read and controls are intuitive. The voice command system required close attention to the manual at first and mating my Blue Tooth cellphone to the car required a quick visit to the dealership to set up. The car is very fast off the line and the auto transmission shifts are silky smooth. Great fun to drive and the A Spec package with 18" tires lets it corner like a dream. This extra was definatily worth it.


Best Features

The Navigation system is tremendous and easy to use. The quality of the sound system in this car would be tough to beat. My previous 1998 CL had a Bose system but the Acura in- house system in my new TL is definitely superior. Service provided at all Acura Dealerships is first class.


Worst Features

CD/DVD capacity could be higher then only 6 discs. Fog lamps would be a nice option. The annual updated GPS DVD's for the Navigation system should be compementary for at least the first 5 years of ownership

2006 Acura TL Sedan 4dr Sedan w/Nav System (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I agonized buying a '06 TL verses a '06 MB E350. I know, it sounds crazy. I owned several Mercedes Benz over 9 yrs and my friends say it's in my blood. All were shocked when I bought a black TL w/ Nav and 18" chrome wheels. The value is tremendous. Yes, the MB has status but look at the MB reliablity...it's bad. My mechanic is now a well-to do man. The TL has much more to offer and the sound system is great. I highly recommend the Nav. It adds a whole new dimension to the car.


Best Features

Sound system with DVD audio, style, comfort, acceleration at 60+ mph; Nav with voice control


Worst Features

Auto head lights, driver's door needs to stay open easier
