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


I have owned my TL-S for a year and a half and have 13K miles on it. Overall a great car. I get 19-20 in the city and 30-32 on the highway at 72 MPH. Good suspension and great surround sound. Minor issues: fold down rear seat would be good, the trunk is so well finished there is no point to tie it down. Rain rolls off the roof onto the driver's seat when you open the door. No good CD case holder in the car. Passenger seat height adjustment would be nice. As you can see my issues are minor. I got 86 more HP than my 01 Accord for the price of 91 octane and with no real mileage penalty. Had considered a G35 but did not want RWD in the snow and the MPG was much higher for the Acura.

Best Features

"looks", wheels, sound system, handling, ride, MPG, "sleeper" category, resale value

Worst Features

Height adjustable passenger seat, rain gutters in door jam, CD holder in console.
