Mostly excellent, but GPS maps stink
By Chrysoberyl on


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


I thought my 6-cylinder AWD Subaru, and 35RL were capable cornering machines until I drove the TL SH-AWD. The TL can corner a whale of a lot faster, and the seat bolsters make even the passengers comfortable while you do that. The instant mpg readout almost turns me into a mega-miler with paddle upshifts. I get 22mpg on 2-lane, curvy, hilly, Ozark roads on 30-mile round trips to town with 40 to 55 mph speeds. Acura GPS maps are so bad, I have to use a portable Garmin GPS to find addresses in this area. Garmin's MapTech maps find locations here and give decent directions. The Acura GPS just shows a dotted line for most roads and directs by compass heading, useless around our very large lake.

Best Features

Safety features, AWD, responsive handling, paddle shifters, keyless entry, exterior buttons to lock doors and open trunk.

Worst Features

Magneto-rheological shocks to improve and control the ride. Find a way to make it back into a true 5-passenger car. Provide a web feedback path direct to Acura Corp.
