This car has all the bells and whistles that I expected from a much newer car. Additionally, it is a very comfortable ride. Does not feel heavy whatsoever when you step on the gas. When you step on the gas it will take about 2 seconds to feel the actual speed of the car since it is a front wheel drive. AC is perfectly cold, heated car seats are HOT!, sun/moon roof are not tiny. I had been debating whether to get this car or a newer Acura TSX. I test drove the TSX and the TL feel like a much more luxurious ride.
this is the second TL that i've owned and would recomend it to anyone looking for the best value in a luxury/performance sedan. Honda reliablity, fit and finish is proven once again along with the fact that it holds its' value better than just about anything else at any price range. it has standard features that the lexus, infinity and cadillac don't offer or charge more for: blue tooth connectivity, selectable tilting side mirrors in reverse, XM radio, heated seats, memory seats, auto dimming rear mirror, tire pressure monitor (06 & 07) dvd-a player, eight speaker stereo with 8" subwoofer plus more. if you can spring for the models with the nav, do it (even if you know your way around town) as you can SPEAK to the car telling it to change tempature (i.e.: passenger side 69 degrees) , fan speed, radio ("XM 54")station, find nearest gas station, atm, chinesse food etc, all without taking your hand off the wheel and/or taking your eyes off the road! really. cool. this feature is found only mostly $80k BMW's and Benz. This car is less than half that price with performance that nearly matches the above mentioned cars. my first TL was an 04 that was totaled by a full size truck traveling 45 and i was at a stop, saw him coming. I walked away with whiplash and the airbags didn't deploy, the car took the impact completely. I was hit so hard, i hit the truck in front of me (read: two truck sandwich, walked away w/minor injury). I know what this car can do, i've seen/exprienced it first hand. the 07 type-s is really fast and would recommend it for someone with a need for speed. Taught suspension may not be for everyone on the type-s however.
WE LOVE OUR ACURA TL - DROVE BENZ E350 PRIOR AND THE RIDE IS JUST AS SMOOTH FOR THE PRICE AND MUCH BETTER GAS MILEAGE. ALWAYS GET COMMENTS ON THE LOOK AND SLEEKNESS OF THE CAR. LOOKS LIKE A SPORTSCAR BUT RIDES LIKE A LUXURY CAR.
The Acura TL is a midsize luxury sedan that come well-equipped with features and stands the test of time. The Acura TL is well-priced for its class and has improved fuel efficiency to match. Compared to the 2004 Acura TL, the 2006 version has very minor updates to the cabin.
The dashboard is completely dominated by the Acura TL's suite of features. Major standard equipment includes cruise control, power windows, power locks, remote keyless entry, leather upholstery, dual-zone air conditioning, DVD, an impressive sound system and Bluetooth wireless connectivity.
Along with excellent fuel economy, the 2006 Acura TL comes with front-wheel drive, which provides a controlled and familiar driving experience for anyone seeking sedans. The handling is well-weighted for its class, and the steering is coordinated as well. Like most sedans, the 2006 TL is competent on the road without any major flaws.
What's under the hood is familiar territory compared to the 2004 Acura TL. The 2006 TL is powered by a 3.2L V6 engine and it is paired with a six-speed manual or optional five-speed transmission and front-wheel drive. This vehicle is an excellent choice for commuting or family hauling.
The 2006 Acura TL's exterior has not changed much since the generation was introduced in 2004. Keeping with the Acura TL's status as a luxury vehicle, it has a sophisticated, spacious cabin with a decent set of features. Standard equipment on the Acura TL includes 17-inch wheels and leather upholstery. Seats are spacious and shaped to seat drivers and passengers comfortably.
