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


Review

It has been 45 days, and 1K miles since I bought a new 2010 Tech SW-AWD TL. I am impressed with the car and these are my observations. The car has excellent build quality, has sharp and distinctive interior and exterior styling, has oodles of power available when you need it, is very comfortable and is loaded with cool technology. It is built in the US (in Marysville OH), is designed in Torrance, CA, and these aspects did matter to me. The car is reasonably priced in its class, rated high on safety, and no car company can touch Honda in reliability and cost of ownership. Simply put...this car is an engineer's dream.


Best Features

- ELS sound system is simply awesome. - responsive handling with SH-AWD drive. - loads of power when you need it - comfortable seats - rear view camera feature is very useful - exterior and interior styling is very distinctive - LOVE all the cool technology in this car


Worst Features

- Pandora instead of XM radio. - Download/upload link to home computer for system setup and storage.

Review

I have had the 2010 TL SH-AWD with Tech for a couple of months now and I love it! It is powerful yet refined and quiet, and truly a blast to drive! The sound system is amazing - the only comparable system at this price point is the Audi B&O system. The interior is beautiful - luxuriously soft leather everywhere and a very user friendly console. Gas mileage is pretty good for a 300+ hp car with AWD - considering that I have only had 2200 miles so far and it's already giving me 21mpg on average (50/50 local and short distance freeway driving), it's already exceeding its stated gas mileage on the EPA sticker and it is still getting better! I also like how striking and unique it looks.


Best Features

The ELS sound system. SH-AWD makes it amazing around the corners. The Milano leather in umber color is gorgeous! Passing power on the freeway. Whisper quiet cabin. The standard 18" 5 spoke rims on SH-AWD are beautifully sporty. Smart key is great and handy. Stunning looks that are not ubiquitous.


Worst Features

I have had some rattles and vibration issues that the dealer took care of. Fold-down rear seats. The ride may be a little bit too harsh for some. Rain-sensing wipers. Daytime running lights with LED rather than halogen. Larger rear trunk with larger opening.

2010 Acura TL Sedan Technology Package 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

After comparing several vehicles at the $39K price cap, I determined the TL was the best pick for me. I see too many identical Infiniti G37s around town, strike. Lincoln MKZ & MKS still feel a half-step behind in their luxury effort, strike. Lexus ES feels too mature and the IS is too cute, strike. Not only is the Acura car stunning to look at, but the interior craftsmanship, powertain performance, and tech features give me the impression of solid modern luxury. Interior ergonomics are a near perfect fit for my 5'5" self.


Best Features

Overall distinctive style, driving position, craftsmanship and interior materials, backup camera, the "ELS surround sound" audio system will give you goose bumps, seat comfort, keyless entry & ignition.


Worst Features

No complaints.

Review

Live in CT and drive to NY daily totaling 33,000 miles a year. As such I buy a new car every three years and I limit it to AWD. I've had a BMW 3, Mercedes c and most recently a Cadillac cts. All nice cars. Just bought the tl w sh awd, tech, under body spoilers and sport grill all less than $40k. 5k less than the cts was 3 years ago. Tl looks great standing still and at speed. Drives like it's on rails and the tech inside is awesome!


Best Features

Sport seats, bluetooth, sound system, all the tech and how it drives.....is there more?


Worst Features

MPG is average so far but acceptable.

Review

With 5 months and 5K miles under my belt, the car is everything you come expect from Acura. A trip to Las Vegas yielded 24.6 MPG! This car maneuvered its way around a bad traffic accident happening right before my eyes thanks to superb handling. A work of art in the design department that grows on you the more you look at it and all the technology one would love to have and needs to have! 5 Star safety rating and super Acura service that adds up to a car I have come to love to drive!


Best Features

I am one who memorized all the voice commands and that works fantastic. A sound system that is worthy of playing smooth Jazz or Classical music. Seats that do what they are suppose to do with a sports sedan, and a 305 HP engine that gets me around some crazy drivers on the freeway of Southern Calif.


Worst Features

We all want just a little bit more features and comfort, but that will come in 2011 or 2012 as it always does as the model years move on, but this is a car I will enjoy for the next 5 plus years!
