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


No manufacturer has yet to build the perfect car (or everyone would drive that one car) but the Acura TL line comes close in the important categories. Best in safety, styling and reliability. Am impressed with the luxury. Seems like most of the displeasure on the sites deal with issues with uncooperative dealerships. Hint. You can go to the Honda dealers for service if needed. Have been getting 23 - 24 mph. Solidly built. Smart engineering, sensible appointments, solid door gaps. It's a Honda after all. Low cost to own when compared to similar cars (Lexus IS350 and Infiniti G37 - try getting same upgrades for same $$) or BMW 323i (expensive to own)Front wheel drive takes some getting used to

Best Features

Sensible and functional Navi system. Large trunk, good leg room. Engine has plenty of power. Sleek styling. great upgrades for simple price point. Never fails to impress people who are sitting in an Acura for the first time. Styled for people who want a relationship with their cars. Good leg room in back seats. All dash and Navi controls make sense to me.

Worst Features

TL's gas pedal seems tight. Steering can be tricky if you aren't used to it. Curb weight might be too heavy. Interior lighting could be better. Nothing a LCD bulb upgrade can't fix though. Do I really need a cassette player?
