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


Review

Overall probably best car I've ever had, and I've had many, incl G35 Coupe (still have) and Sedan, and '06 BMW 3- series (didn't like). Does it handle like them or have the power of the Infiniti? No, but it has more power and torque than BMW and it's still plenty fun to drive. Very comfortable, great features for the money, excellent ergonomics and, I think, looks great, too. Also, the fact that it's FWD does not mean that it's not a sport sedan. It's not a Bimmer or Audi, but it's still very much a sport sedan. And you get a lot more car for the money than the German cars.


Best Features

Ergonomics, Navi system, Blue tooth, looks, comfort, fun to drive, value for money.


Worst Features

More low-end torque, auto-on headlights (I can't believe a car with all these features doesn't have them), bigger trunk and/or fold-down rear seat.

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


Review

After looking at every other car in this class, (Audi A4, BMW 3, Infiniti G35, Saab 9-3, Lexus ES and IS) nothing even came close to the feature content and performance of the TL. Everything either costs thousands more (the BMW and the Lexus cost over $50k for an entry-level car!) or didn't have good buld quality (Saab may have been ruined by GM.) The TL has attractive styling, plenty of electronic toys, excellent acceleration, and a firm but comfortabl ride. The TL is the best all-rounder on the market. I should know, I actually work for an Infiniti dealership.


Best Features

Nav system is probably the best on the market. ELS sound system is incredible, and the styling is the best to come out of Acura since the NSX.


Worst Features

Nothing is desperately needed. But I would like to see automatic headlights, a rearview camera, an auto tilt/ telescoping steering wheel. Also, bring back the Type-S version with a bigger engine and SH-AWD!

Review

Great features for the $


Best Features

Blue interior lights! These are nicer than the BMW.


Worst Features

Door handle positioning. Also, I hate switching from map to audio just to change radio stations - inconvenient and leaves prints on the screen.

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


Review

I was not impressed with this vehicle. The seats were uncomfortable and the ride is too rough. I know it's suppose to be kind of sporty, but I also expected a more comfotable ride. It was an automatic but switched gears (on it's own) like a stick. It would sometimes idle high when I wasn't pressing on the gas. I traded it in, in 6 months. Wasn't for me.


Best Features

Navigation, Bluetooth & Stero sound


Worst Features

Make a more comfortable seat, and ride. Auto door locks and headlights, bigger rear view mirrors. BETTER GAS MILEAGE.
