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


I am on my second year with my tl, and I as very impressed with the quality, and the smooth 3.5 engine and I am not that impressed with the manual auto shifter, as sometimes the transmission shifts two times, and this car should have a six speed manual available instead of making you buy the over 40,000 dollar all wheel drive with the technology package, and the six speed should be available in the tsx also as it has the same engine that the tl has as a option, and this five speed just is not a good fit as it holds the engine back, and we love this car, and we drove a mdx for a few days, and now this is a real car, as this car really sounds so good with the 3.7 engine singing with a big smooth burst.

Best Features

we love the hunkered down look of this car as it is so sleek,and powerful,and we are getting 28 mpg.did not like the front end at first,but i grew to really like it, and i don't really like the type of leather on the dashboard, as it looks like really cheap. love the dual exhaust, and this car is awesome

Worst Features

the ride is way too stiff as every one complains about this so Honda you should soften the ride some,and i never get tired of looking at this car, and get with it, Honda where is a really good type-s as i had a 2001 type-s and i feel this tl will go around the type s on the top end, as it is sleeker
