2012 Acura TL SH-AWD w/Advance Package 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


I owned 2008 TL-S and the new car is a substantial improvement over previous model.
Could use a more adjustable positions for driver seat as an extra option(I would buy it) - 18 ways as Lexus.
Steering wheel adjustments should be automated and should be part of the driver memory positions.
Also, the leather on the steering wheel is horrible - it feels dry and does not offer comfortable grip - I think it is even dangerous, especially if your hands are dry.
I had to get wood grain option.
I missed having two front compartments from my old TL-S.
Otherwise it is an excellent car and a joy to drive.
Good job Acura engineers - very competitive car.

Best Features

all wheel drive terrific sound system start/stop buttons look and feel price handling

Worst Features

steering wheel leather does not offer reliable grip especially for people with dry hands(dangerous) steering wheel column should be moved automatically and be part of the driver position memory(basic attribute of the luxury car), could be extra option on advanced package, i would pay for it As an option the car should offer 18-way adjustable driver seats(advanced attribute of the luxury car)
