2010 Acura TL SH-AWD w/Technology Package and HPT 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
Own and love a BMW Z4 and was preparing to buy a 535XI until I drove this car. Pulls well in all six gears, and close ratio shifting is smoother than any car I've ever driven. (reminiscent of a previously owned 1995 NSX). Technology is easy to use and impressive. All wheel drive makes the car feel as if it's on rails on sweeping freeway on-ramps. An absolute blast to drive.
6M, 305 HP, tech pkg, 19" wheels
with all the features and technology,can't believe it offers no automatic wipers. Opportunity for improved 20 MPG would be helpful
Two rules you should always follow! 1) Always test drive The Exact car you are going to buy and 2) Don't believe the salesman when he tells you that they are all the same. My 2010 Acura TL has experienced severe vibration since new which is felt at highway speeds throughout the entire cabin and through the steering wheel. Initially dismissed and finally admitted to, they are calling in an engineer since their mechanic(s) can't figure it out. The car has allegedly been through rotors, tire/rim changes and half- shafts. I couldn't be any more disappointed than I am with the vehicle and Acura's response.I would not recommend this car to anyone without test driving at highway speeds at length...
Styling (interior and exterior)
Fix highway speed vibration, pathetic for a $35,000 vehicle!
2010 Acura TL Technology Package 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Recently took possession of 2010 Acura TL with tech package. this vehicle replaced 2006 TL. We also had a 2003 TL. Already bullet proof TL's keep getting better. The 2010 is bigger than the '06 and more comfortable. Also bigger trunk. Combined mileage in mis 20's with a bigger engine. Very substantial hard drive for loading CDs. Excellent interface for Ipod. With all this audio power, XM radio is not necessary. key fob is handy for my wife. She can keep it in her purse. I plug it into dash receptacle as I am afraid it will fall out of my pocket. A lot of compliments on the blue pearl color.
Ipod interconnection. Paddle shifters - especially for down shift on hills. Auto on headlights. Superior dealer service.
Purchased this manual transmission TL SH-AWD based on the praise it received during editor test drives. Let me just say that it exceeded my expectations. It handles and drives better than my 335xDrive BMW with more room and comfort. Those considering a German car costing you thousands more would be foolish not to try the TL. I rushed to get one because Acura is stopping (or has stopped already) production on the Manual Trans TLs. Get one now before they're gone! Great balance of power, handling, and technology (best NAV) if you can deal with the polarizing styling.
Slick shifting manual transmission, amazing AWD which can transfer 100% of power to rear outside wheel cornering, best Navigation in the industry, best sound system, nice stock five spoke wheels, engine note. All features included -- no nickel and dimming you like European imports.
Don't stop making the manual trans. Fewer buttons and knobs -- you need an engineering degree to figure it all out.
