Purchased the car brand new in 2011. Have been disappointed in several things, the center console armrest leather ripped after only 4 years and no real wear and tear. Dealer wanted $350 to replace so I did it myself for about $50. The exterior chrome molding/gasket came loose on both sides and cost $400 to replace each. The passenger AC ducts became stuck in 1 position and had to pay another $400 to fix. There are 2 individual sides and now both sides have become stuck in 1 position again. Battery was replaced twice in 3 years, after it was no longer covered by warranty I went to Sam's Club and purchased their battery and haven't had a problem yet. Brake pads/rotors showed rust after 1 year. Disappointed in quality and won't purchase again.
2012 Acura TL Sedan SH-AWD w/Technology Package 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
The 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD is a fantastic car to own. A lot of ownership satisfaction in a car with Honda/Acura reliability, great looks inside and out, and great driving experience. The SH-AWD provides an unparalleled driving experience in turns and makes the car an all-season, all-weather performance vehicle. Love to drive in the snow while everyone else is stuck at home with their Camaros, Mustangs, and the list goes on. The interior is fantastic. Great seats and driving experience behind the wheel. Love the nav system in this car. The "too many buttons" complaint is just silly. Drive it for a week and you will understand. The only negatives are the following: slalom driving is not this car's best function, trunk is a little small, back seats are more comfortable for two, need more cup holders throughout the car, some maintenance items can get pricey.
By Dissapointed in reliability but love driving it.
2012 Acura TL Sedan 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I have had more repairs on this car then any car I've ever owned. (for a car that's only five years old with 50,000 miles.) Bad transmission, broken window control, airbag drivers side, broken radio, just out of warranty. (This is a common problem apparently.) In addition, the dealer has damaged the car twice. One time they scratched the paint in 2 places through to the primer. Another time they ripped up the upholstery on the armrest . They fixed it both times, but wasted a lot of my time, There is no excuse for damaging the vehicle. Everything but the radio has been under warranty. Like the car a lot, but very disappointed in the reliability. Hate to see what my repair bills will be now that its not under warranty.
2012 Acura TL Sedan SH-AWD 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
2012 Acura TL SH-AWD is an incredible balance between luxury and sport in a sedan that runs up there with the BMW, Infinity and others. I don't care what anyone says, Honda reliability in a "tweaked" upscale car is so fun. The performance, features and sporty ride is great!!! Have owned Honda vehicles since 1992 and this is the first Acura in the garage and more than likely won't be the last. Get one! Do it and you will not be disappointed.
2012 Acura TL Sedan Technology Package 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I own a 2012 TL, and this is the fourth ACURA vehicle I have purchased since 1990. My wife currently drives a 2012 MDX and she loves the ACURA brand also. This TL has the Tech Pkg and the car drives just like it did when there was 5 miles on it. I have know complaints about this car ... it looks good, drives good, great reliability, well-engineered vehicle.
