Perfect combo of style, performance, and comfort

I think Acura hit the sweet spot with this TLX model. The A-Spec package in still night pearl blue is a real looker. Very fun to drive, with acceleration and performance enough to satisfy all but the most critical performance geeks. Really impressed with how well this car does on snowy/icy roads as well. Feels really solid.

If you are an Acura fan, and looking for a great sporty sedan with power and performance, the A-Spec TLX is a great car. It comes either front wheel or AWD. The A-Spec is pricey for a TLX, however it has great value. It has a 290hp 3.5 Liter VTEC6-cylinder engine, which is the same engine in the MDX. It has 4 drive modes Econ, Normal, Sport, and Sport+. You’re burning rubber in Sport+. There is a 12-way driver’s seat and a long list of safety features. It’s a beautiful automobile inside and out that turns heads. With 23 mpg combined city/highway, it’s not very good on gas. But, driving in Econ mode helps.

Little bit of a let down

Had a 2016 touring accord coupe. My Accord rides better. My hood on my TLX flexing on the freeway. I live in Montana and the speed limit is 80. When I drive it the steering vibration and the front hood flexing and fluttering. Iv got to call Acura. Can't deal with this. Its got 2500 on it now. Closest dealer is 400 miles from Bozeman Montana.

Worst car I ever owned

This car is not worth the money. It is very hard to get in and out. I used to own the Accura TL's and they were a great car. This car is nothing like that. The ride is very hard. There is no give to the seat, tires, or suspension. It is painful to go over bumps and my back hurt constantly. I traded it in after owning for 4 months. The heat blasted out hot air on your foot so you had to turn the heat off. The radio is poor for what they claim is an upscale car. Only one speaker in the center. Save your money and buy another car.
