2007 Acura TL 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

For a luxury car, the TL performs well, but is under-powered compared to others in the same class like the Infiniti G35 and the BMW 3 series. The suspension and handling is impressive at the expense of a smooth ride and a very poor turning radius. The 07 automatic transmission is less responsive than what I would expect from a luxury car Trim and paint quality is no better than the paint used on Honda cars while paint on the Infiniti is better. Road noise and rattles are the biggest issues with this model and Acura and Honda in general. There are known rattles in the 2007 TL many coming from the window sills front and back. Most do not happen all the time thus hard to trouble shoot


Best Features

Stereo, handling and bluetooth.


Worst Features

Fix the rattles. Acura needs to take care of customers like Infiniti does. Don't treat Acura customers like Honda customers. Need to step it up and stand behind products more than just with warranty.

2007 Acura TL 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love my Acura, but been having things go wrong; Navigation has been replaced once already, and now is still freezing up. Dealer says not sure what problem is. A lot of rattles inside cabin, Engine panels are being scratched by hood, along with the strut hood support. Plastic caps on door, and door panels rattle loose, plastic covering comes off on door pockets. Front grill piece of Acura logo, starting to rust. Why did they put a tape cassette player in it? Plugging in i-POD cable a joke and hard to operate when wire is snaked through arm rest. Why put heated seat buttons near cup holder? Coin collector keeper comes loose all the time when arm rest lifts up.


Best Features

The x-m radio is a must in every vehicle. Fast acceleration is great. Looks of ACURA TL, are eye catching.


Worst Features

Why the cassette player? Heated seat buttons near cup holder? A disaster waiting to happen with wires if something spills in control. I-Pod wiring in arm rest is not helpful at all. Needs easier access for cigarette lighter plug in.

2007 Acura TL 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car has done what I thought was impossible. It's taken the fun out of driving. Outward visibility is useless. It's like living/driving in a cave. The all-back interior is hearse-like and depressing. The transmission is wonky. It has an impossible-to-read mind of its own. The suspension. Don't get me started. It can't decide whether it's a sports car or a sedan. The gas mileage is horrible. Sitting at idle in heavy traffic, you can watch the needle on the gas gauge slip down, down, down. The HVAC controls are confusing.


Best Features

So far, no major quality or maintenance concerns.


Worst Features

Scrap it. Start all over. I see the new models are in the showroom. I haven't bothered to look at them. My last Honda product -- ever.

2007 Acura TL 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased an '07 TL after owning 2 accords. Notable step up. Fit and finish is superb. Comfort is fine for a 6 footer. Performance is generally very good. Low speed torque / gearing can sometimes be annoying. Brakes are as smooth and quiet as any I've experienced. It does not handle like a race car, but it is not a race car. For its purpose and market, handling is fun and responsive. Mechanics and reliability after 22,000 miles is perfect. I do not share other writers' experiences with rattles. This car is well insulated. Not the first rattle in my experience. BTW, the sound system is great, but I do agree that the ipod jack is poorly located.


Best Features

style, fit & finish, mechanics and reliability, climate control system, sound system, electronics


Worst Features

relocate ipod jack slap stick is a waste

2007 Acura TL Type-S 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Previously leased two Acura RLs; bought the TLS based on the quality build and driving experience of those previous Acura cars. Wise decision. Better than expected MPG to date--26.5 for 38M miles which includes balance of city/highway conditions. Treadwear remaining--40%. Never an alignment problem. Acceleration is outstanding. Car is quiet, comfortable, and feels solid. Pearl white exterior stands out in a crowd. Maintenance expenses to date: $367 (about $.01 per mile). How the car may be improved: (1) Larger vertical space for trunk opening, (2) Fold down rear seats, (3) Keyless ignition, and (4) More foot space for rear passengers. Even with these suggestions, this is one first-rate car.
