2009 Acura TL Sedan Technology Package 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My TL handles so well and is one of the most comfortable rides I've had, especially upgrading from a Honda Prelude. The voice recognition for the Navi, Climate Control, and radio is awesome. It's still a bit of a learning curve though, but one of the best features. The TL has provided me with the best driving experience thus far.


Best Features

The navigator is so awesome, such a great upgrade from a Garmin. The voice recognition makes everything so easy to handle, from the radio to the climate control. The iPod USB connection is awesome, it keeps the iPod charged. The HDD is awesome! Downloading CDs into the hard drive means no CDs!


Worst Features

Gas mileage.

2009 Acura TL Sedan SH-AWD w/Technology Package 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Recently purchased a new SH-AWD with Tech package. Pros: 1) Easy to use navigation 2) Inside layout's neat and makes sense. 3) Bigger interior spaces and more room for back seats. 4) Push button engine start. 6) Price is right compared to other competitors. Cons: 1) suspension is too stiff that you can feel every tiny, tiny bump of the road. Any ride longer than 10 minutes in the city is not enjoyable. 2) back trunk is relatively high for putting away heavier objects and it's small as well. 3) Some of the interior materials feel cheap: plastic of door pockets bring the car down. 4) seats are not comfortable as the previous two TL models I had driven.


Best Features

tech package, interior layout


Worst Features

Stiff suspension and ride comfort, door pockets feel too plasticky, handling is only so so.

2009 Acura TL Sedan SH-AWD w/Technology Package and Summer Tires 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is my first new car and what a car it is. Fun to drive and the technology can be overwhelming sometimes but still great. I already put 500 miles on my car after just 1 week because I want to drive it everyday. The SH-AWD is great, the car is glued to the road during all types of conditions. I'm averaging 28MPG on the highway and I've seen has high as 40mpg.


Best Features

Navigation, XM radio, traffic and wx.


Worst Features

Nothing

I can't say enough about my 09 TL (basic model). It comes equipped with features you'd expect to find in a much more expensive car. Best deal on the market.


Best Features

Powerful engine, dual air, comfortable ride and Blue Tooth phone set up.


Worst Features

Nothing.

Review

Just bought my new 09 TL base love the car already. I traded in my 02 because the transmission went out right in front of the dealership it must have been a sign. Everything in this car is 100% improved from the 02 model. I looked at ES350 nice car but once you add all the options just too much and the G37 it was too small. Best car you can get out there for the money hands down


Best Features

Radio, exterior, and interior styling .


Worst Features

AC seats, electronic telescoping wheel, standard push to start.
