Type S is great!

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


I have had my Type S for a month. There are a lot of nice details I keep finding. Was a bit leery about the "big" engine considering gas has since gone to over $4/gal. So far I notice hardly any difference from my 01 Accord V-6. I only have 1200 miles on the car but am getting 20 MPG around town and 29 on the highway (At 73 MPH). My Honda got 20/30 so I am getting 86 HP for the cost of premium! The only slight negatives are the wide turning circle and the Brembos seem a bit "grabby" when applied. The audio system is almost worth the price alone. I decide not to wait for the 09 as I did not want a bigger car nor a bigger engine.

Best Features

Audio, comfort, MPG, styling.

Worst Features

Turning cicle, grabby Brembos, passenger seat heigh adjustment
