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 car is sexy! Good acceleration! (fast) Stylish with all the bells and whistles! Lot's of bang for the buck! Down side's. The turn ratio And the gas millage is pretty sad! The leather is unforgiving. And the dashboard is a crack waiting to happen. But over all this one is a keeper!
By far the best car I've owned and driven!
2005 Acura TLS Crg - BT, NJ10/24/2015
I bought this model brand new in 2005. It had a unique body style and the powerful V-6 purred. I had priced out an Infinity G-35x with all the bells and whistles after having leased the 2WD drive model, and when I came across the TL, it had every feature INCLUDED for nearly $3500 less! So I got the small spoiler to dress up my Silver w/Gray interior. The car truly made my 2.5 to 3 hr commute each way a dream, with amazing sound system - A comfy,clean, smooth ride, on the dime handling with awesome pep and smart, user friendly dash components. I truly missed this car when I gave it up for an SUV to move out West. I wish they hadn't changed the body style (grille and rear) It truly was unique. By far, the best car I've owned!
If you’re conducting used car research to find a deal on pre-owned luxury vehicles, it only makes sense to learn about the Acura TL—a car with touring luxury actually built into its name. The Acura TL is a mid-sized luxury car that succeeded the Acura Vigor and was produced between 1996 and 2014. While the first-generation Acura TL (1996 to 1998) was manufactured in Japan, production soon shifted to the Honda plant in Marysville, Ohio.
The Acura MDX, which entered the market in 2001, was designed to address the need for a high-performance people-mover with an abundance of luxury features. Although the MDX replaced Acura’s SLX, its build was actually based on the popular Honda Pilot. In true Acura style, this newly-developed SUV was infused with the highest-quality comfort and performance features available.
