2008 Acura TL Sedan 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

For the great lease you can not beat the value of this car, lots of options that cost extra or cannot get on other cars. The ride is a little on the stiff side especially when temps are below 30 degrees.


Best Features

Bluetooth, navi, seats, audio system


Worst Features

Electronic damper adjustment, overdrive lockout button, six speed auto trans

2008 Acura TL Sedan 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have had the car for under a week, no complaints at all.The car is an automatic and drives very smooth. I would recommend this car to anyone comparing it to a Lexus or a Mercedes. Apart from value of the vehicle, Acura offers reliability.


Best Features

Reliability of the vehicle, drive, visibility.


Worst Features

Add ventilated seats,

2008 Acura TL Sedan 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I downgraded from a 2005 BMW 5-Series sedan because I needed a cheaper ride at this point in my life. This car is handsome, well built, and chock full of extras that cost at least $10K in the BMW 328xi that I was considering.


Best Features

Blue Tooth, comfortable heated seats, seats, lumbar support, heated side view mirrors, nice fit and finish, HID headlights, attractive styling.


Worst Features

Trunk is a little small, ditch the cassette tape player, brighten up the steering wheel controls for night driving, line the side pockets to eliminate the rattles, and design a key fob that is smaller and doesn't resemble a switch blade! Could use AWD and a softer ride.

Review

This is my 2nd TL. My previous TL was an '06, same base model. I grew up in an automotive family and have more automotive knowledge than most owners. My last couple of cars were a Porsche 944, an SHO, Maxima SE, a Lexis IS and a TSX. (Our other car is a Highlander AWD.) Simply the TL is the most satisfying car I have owned. The drive, the comfort, the reliability and relative economy of ownership are exceptional! The car does it all. It's a great highway cruiser - comfortable for four adults although a little tight in the back, responsive on a winding road and very quiet unless you jack up the fabulous audio system. Best bang for the buck!


Best Features

Performance, economy - 20 plus mpg mixed driving audio system, Bluetooth, interior and exterior design.


Worst Features

A tighter turning radius. Almost 40 feet can be limiting.

Review

I purchased my TL after owning a Saab 9-3. The car is exactly what you expect from this type of Acura. This is my third Acura and plan on a new MDX this summer. The one thing that bothers me is that the TL is constantly compared to the Lexus IS, BMW 3-series, Infiniti G35, etc. However the TL is bigger than all of these cars and actually the size of the Lexus GS & M45.


Best Features

Solid everything, great stereo, luxury amenities and finish


Worst Features

Cooled front seats and heated and cooled rear seats option, power rear sunshade, AWD option, power folding mirrors.
