The TLX is comfortable, relatively quiet, and nice looking, inside and out. Beware of the plastic around the seat bases. Guaranteed to crack and separate. Bad design. Every now and then,when stopped, the transmission causes a forward "kick", making you wonder if someone rear ended you. The controls are complicated and not at all intuitive. Mileage is great considering its quick acceleration, BUT, premium fuel is required.
Unlike almost all auto companies in the class that Acura tries to compare itself to, Acura does not, under any circumstances, permit a lease to be assumed, regardless of circumstances. And when you approach the dealer to see if a buyback is a potential solution, they tell you that the car is worth far less than the amount of payments due..... Its a sham..... Do not EVER lease an Acura.....
This is my 6th Acura. 2017 TLX, 6 cylinder with Technology package. I turned in a 2013 TL, which I really liked but the lease had been extended three times. The 2013 was a superior automobile to the 2017. In more detail: The road handling is very good. The steering is precise and communicative. The road noise has been improved considerably. The stereo is the known ELS which is very good. The bad news: The technology is archaic, behind the times, totally disappointing, head scratching, how ACURA allows their automobiles to be designed and sold this way. The Honda Civic and the Hyundai Elantra (!!) are years ahead in terms of technology than the TLX. The menu selections are awful, a lot of duplication. The response time is amazingly slow, to the point that one does not know whether it works. The software did get "hung up" once, during the first week but it recovered. If technology is not important, it is a very solid car and fun to drive. But since technology is an integral part of the driving experience, it is a rather disappointing car.
I've owned the TLX technology, the navigation is not the greatest it had me turned around a few times , every once in awhile the volume on the stereo would automatically get louder to its highest level and vibrant the car I would take the car in to Acura to find out the problem , only to find out we can't find out the problem, but I was told the next time it happens bring it back in. This was the 2nd time it happened and the 2nd time I brought it in . The paint does not do well on the road with other cars .
