Great TL but has some flaws
By CPT Keanu on


2006 Acura TL 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Bought in July performs flawlessly on freeway. Quiet & very comfortable love the XM on desolate roads. Awesome highway mileage @ 31mpg going 75+mph! Great exterior & bi-xenons are invaluable. Love the interior blue hue color. To contrast its great features, in city its different. Must drive very very conservative to get decent mpg. Suspension rough over hard surfaces. Steering not responsive like TSX. Been to dealer 6 times; driver window rattling, trunk latch inop, headliner sagging took 3 attempts to fix! Now rough idle @ startup & weird idle fluxuations! Our many loaner TSXs are tempting us. Our 99 TL was made better. Never had rattling noises or tranny issues even at 160k what a car.

Best Features

A superb highway cruiser, low noise, great mpg, & great bi-xenons @ night. Great user settings for each driver; lights off, auto door lock, etc. Interior ergonomics top notch, great design, good quality. XM radio, much standard equipment!

Worst Features

Improve quality of assembly. Too many flaws, sagging headliner, rattling noises, need new service techs. Improve auto trans, more control over manual mode. Why no MP3? Bose needs to return. Good stereo but no bottom end. Softer suspension/quieter in town.
