Rampant Electrical Problems

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


This is my second Acura after an exceptional 1998 Integra. Sadly, the TL has not met expectations. The cruise control broke in 2009; the battery has died twice for no apparent reason (remote entry doesn't work w/o battery); and the hands free link broke. Of course, these issues all occurred after the warranty expired. The turning radius is atrocious. After waiting three years, we finally purchased an "update" to the Nav system for $150 only to have Acura come out with a new version 3 months later. (A little notice would have been nice.)

Best Features

The ride is incredibly smooth; the Nav system user friendly and aesthetically pleasing; and the other Acura qualities present.

Worst Features

Electrical components, including battery, for more reliability; turning radius; timely and affordable updates to Nav system.
