2010 Acura TL SH-AWD w/Technology Package and HPT 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Test drove BMW, Infiniti and Audi and don't understand why "they" don't see this car as an option versus the S4 (but then again don't really care). What I noticed most about this car was the overall balance of features, performance, engineering and safety (2nd to none). Too many buttons? Who cares as you can do almost everything through a great voice command system. 6MT certainly does allow for immediacy and the handling is idiot proof. Huge rear seat area.


Best Features

SH-AWD is the epitomy of point and shoot and the ELS stereo.


Worst Features

What would happen if you added forced induction?

2010 Acura TL SH-AWD w/Technology Package 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I own a 2010 TL SHAWD & what I can say at this point it's to stay away from it. The car has been in the shop for over 45 days because a noise coming from the right and left pillards. It appears it is an structural problem and after having a factory rep in town they decided not to do anything about it. The service manager told me they started having more cars coming in with the same problem and they do not have a clue have to fix it, they were using mine as a platform for future repairs. Buy something else until Acura addresses this if they do because this could affect the integrity of the car in case of an accident plus the noise it is so annoying that you won't enjoy your ride at all.


Best Features

Handling, style.


Worst Features

Build quality, this car has rattles everywhere.

2010 Acura TL SH-AWD w/Technology Package 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Wanted to replace a 2008 TL S-Type with a moderate-price spirited daily driver adding AWD for winter driving. The TL is slightly underpowered, and I didn't like the FWD/tourque steer. Test drove the BMW 535/335 X, Mercedes C 4-Matic. Both are nice cars, but when compared to the TL S-Type neither is really exhilarating. I was not considering another Acura until I saw the 3.5 litre 6-speed. My impression, this car compares very favorably with the BMW 535 in size and performance. Compared to the S-Type the ride is softer with less road feel but the AWD system makes it corner like it's on rails even with 18" all seaon tires. Put 19" performance tires on it if you really want to have fun.


Best Features

Increased HP Manual 6-speed Improved tech package interface, (no more finger prints on the touch screen). Proximity key system. Great seats with a drivers headrest you can actually use, center rear headrest. HDD and iPod interface, very good sound system. Cool weather info and mapping.


Worst Features

Exterior front styling Traffic mapping marginal and auto- rerouting non-existant HDD only copies stero CDs not 5.1 DTS disks or MP3 from iPOD. Even some copy protected CDs are NG. Huge downer in convenience & there's no room in the cockpit to store disks. Voice command is still quite quirky

2010 Acura TL SH-AWD w/Technology Package 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I had a 3G TL (2007) leased, and with the lease coming up I started looking around at new cars. Specifically the luxury/sporty/AWD sedan market. The 2010 TL was always in the running, but I didn't like the front end on most colors (though it looks good in white and silver), and some other cars seemed more sporty - G37, BMW 335, and others seemed more luxurious - MB C class, Audi A4, Lexus GS. Then I saw they had a 6spd manual, and I had to go drive it. When I drove it, I had to have it. The interior is top notch for the price point, the exterior is distinctive in a GOOD way (esp. the back end), and the combo of 4 doors, 300 HP, AWD and a manual transmission is a very rare and good thing


Best Features

Handling thanks to 300HP+AWD. Speed thanks to AWD and 6speed manual. Distinct looks. Front seats are very comfortable, interior in general (with tech package) is very nice.


Worst Features

maybe its just my driving style, but my gas mileage is not ever going to top 20 MPG in this car.

2010 Acura TL SH-AWD w/Technology Package and HPT 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have owned a 2004 TL prior and went to Lexus GS 350 in 2007. I came back to the TL after driving the 2010 SH-AWD. Acura does all the little things well, the bluetooth (quality is outstanding), the stock stereo is everything other reviewers claimed (outrageous for stock), the Navigation is second to none. Having owned a Lexus, BWM and Infinity, the Navigation is well executed and very useable. The AWD reminds me of my 2001 BWM 330ic it truly makes handling feel like a German sports car. I shopped it against the Audi 6, the Infinity M and Cadillac CTS. For the money with all the things Acura puts in the TL standard it was not even close. A perfect choice for an outside salesperson.


Best Features

Engine performance, handling, stereo, bluetooth, interior build quality. What you get for what you pay is great. Super value when compared to competitors


Worst Features

Need to offer ventilated seats (available on RL and MDX but not TL)
