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


Having driven many competitive vehicles (bmw, lexus, audi, cadillac, infiniti, etc), the value of the 2009 TL is simply in a class of its own. With excellent power, a very comfortable ride, and an amazing tech package, this car has been a blast to own. Also, after a couple of 600 mile road trips, I am averaging 28 mpg highway and around 20 mpg in the city. Outstanding fuel economy for a car this powerful. I do miss having a RWD powertrain, but Acura has mostly eliminated the torque steer from their previous efforts, and I am sure the fwd helps with fuel economy. A little more body roll than I want, but a comparable 5 series bmw that offers better cornering was 15K+.

Best Features

Tech package is a blast, with iPod, bluetooth, doppler radar (crazy), and a nav system with 7M+ points of interest. Shift paddles make ramps and passing more fun, as well as engine breaking. Styling has actually gotten great reviews from friends as well as most passerby (many thumbs up)

Worst Features

Upgrade the wheels! 17" look SMALL on this vehicle, and make handling a little softer than need be. Also would like to see ventilated seats, and maybe a wood package interior, although the aluminum is sharp.
