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


Review

My lease is ending after 3yrs of ownership and I am sorry to see it go. I have considered buying it out, but I will be out of warranty. I have been searching for a CPO with low miles to purchase. I did not have ONE bad experience with this car, and although the new style is growing on me, the '08 is much nicer. Great looking, sporty driving, and 50,000 miles without having to replace brakes and/or tires! Thanks, Acura...


Best Features

Looks, fit and finish, paint quality, sportiness, ELS audio


Worst Features

IPOD jack easier to reach, regular fuel please

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


Review

I owned Acura TL 2008 new. Currently, it has 51300 miles and the check engine on. Brought to dealer (Open road acura on route 18 East Brunswick, NJ) they found codes:P0701 and P0704, cleared codes. After 24 h, the light is on again. I bought an OBD device checked with codes: P0300, P0301, P0304, P0306, P0701 and P0704. How could the dealer tech. missed these codes? The car have been at dealer since Nov. 10, 2010 and now Nov. 22, 2010. The car have not been fixed. Dealer told me they contacted Acura tech. but no solution. Acura tech couldn’t solved their on creation?

Review

This is a GREAT car, loved it...was fun to drive. great looking exterior, sporty and modest. quick and agile. Overall very happy and will consider buying another TL. However, see issues below, cons....I had to return to shop 3 x for steering adjustments under service warantee..disappointing they did not catch it first two times.


Best Features

- Quick and agile angine and ability to switch to manual - exterior (front grill better than newer models) - sound system GREAT - simple use of key electronic features...just the right amount


Worst Features

- needs better turning radius - be aware that the front end of card is too low - split AC/hear does not work as effectively as other cars - had problems with steering - had to get it fixed - blue tooth is bad with i-phone (good with blackberry

Review

This car has so many rattles it is difficult to describe. Cheap interior parts and poor quality control at the plant. Car has been at the dealership at least 6 times and they haven't fixed anything, actually made it worse. Now a window leaks when you go through a car wash or heavy rain. All on a 2 year old car with less than 30k.


Best Features

Usually starts.


Worst Features

Quality control, use better parts and intelligent labor. Acura is losing it.

Review

When it rains, water barely touches the side windows. But if you crack the window to smoke, water pours into the car, all over you, the door, everything, even if it's only sprinkling or misting rain. Taken the car across the country on 1000+ mile trips 4 times. The console is so small and poorly designed, nothing that can stored there or reached. If you ever drop something between the console and the seat, it's gone forever unless you have very small arms or hands. Hope you don't drop anything valuable, like your wedding ring! Great navigation system. Great drive. 35 miles per gallon across country at 75 MPH. Sound system good enough. Passenger seat gets uncomfortable on long drives.


Best Features

Navigation, drive, exterior look


Worst Features

fix the water pouring in when it rains. passenger seat should have more adjustments. fix the console....way too small and useless.
