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


Had taken my 2008 TL Type S in for some routine maint and given the 2009 TL. Must say I was not disappointed but not overly impressed. Kinda left me feeling a bit ho-hum *yawn*. The styling of the 2009 TL is confusing. It's as if they attempted to include everything on the exterior and the result is just big question mark. What was the statement? The interior is just as confusing with all its swoops and swirls... definite disconnection. The ride was comfortable, stereo sounded great, seats comfortable. Acceleration was quite lacking as I've become accustomed to much more in my 08 Type S. Overall not a disappointing ride, however, nothing spectacular. The Tech package is extraordinary.

Best Features

The Nav system is the best I've seen. Quite up to date and extremely user friendly. Ride was smooth but a little too soft.

Worst Features

Revert to the 2008 body style or come up with something better. While the engine is 3.7 the TL gained 300lbs therefore it's a wash. The 08 Type S could out run this 09 buffalo, tighter suspension, more sporty interior. Lose the upfront "lightshow." The 2009 TL is no doubt, still a quality ride.
