Acura TL Type-S is a MONSTER!!
By vegasrph on


2008 Acura TL Type-S 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Ok. This car likes to go fast, very fast. It feels very secure, but she likes to "boogie"!! I test drove a lot of cars before leasing the TL-S and I have to say, I made the right choice. Fuel economy isn't bad, isn't great either. So far I am averaging 20mpg, but for a car that has 286HP and F-1 style paddle shifters, its not bad. :) The car has room for 4/5 adults and golf clubs, plus it MOVES down the road with a lot of autority. The exhaust note is seductive, NAV is awesome, paddle shifters are sweet, handling is secure and often feels neutral, very much a "sleeper" on the street and easy to blow the doors off a BMW/Lexus/MB and give you a grin ear to ear. Get one, you will LOVE IT! :)

Best Features

POWER, NAV, voice command, looks, ipod jack standard, F-1 paddle shifters, interior is comfortable (I am 6'5") and a usable trunk.

Worst Features

Lose the cassette deck, add a 40GB hard drive to store music, make 18" wheels standard, let owner choose the rear spoiler instead of standard lip spoiler.
