Best ride for the buck. by TL lover on 09/08/2010. Trim: 2009 Acura TL 5-Spd AT SH-AWD w/Tech Pkg, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Best value for the price.
Cons: Nothing is wrong with this car. I love it.
Overall review: Not one competitor can offer a fully loaded car like this one, for less money. I know because I checked them all out prior to purchasing this car. It is comfortable, it is fast enough, it is safer then all the rest in the rain and it has been completely reliable during the past 13,000 miles. I owned an RL prior to this new TL and this car is better in every way. Try and buy a similar configured Audi, BMW or Merc for less than 40,000. They don't exist and although they all surpass the TL in one or two areas, none of them offer the complete package without paying an arm and a leg.

Amazing value, and overall sweet ride! by Tom - Wayne, NJ on 09/22/2009. Trim: 2009 Acura TL 5-Spd AT SH-AWD w/Tech Pkg, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The technology and integration is a far leap beyond the overall 2006 model that I enjoyed for 3 and 1/2 years. The navigation is hard drive based and recalculates quickly. Additionally, the power and confidence provided by the 3.7 liter engine leaves very little to be desired. The SH-AWD gives me complete confidence when driving in treacherous conditions. The seats are comfortable and the technology intuitive in its usage.
Cons: Overall, it is an amazing vehicle but I would hope to see one additional safety features in 2010 and that is blind spot notification (available in the Mazda 6 and redesigned Ford Taurus). Additionally, I would also have the availability of remote start as an optional capability, as the TL SH-AWD has a push button starter the capability to have a remote start installed as a Dealer Accessory is not yet available. Aside from that, the vehicle is amazing.
Overall review: The car is amazing in technology, safety, performance, capability and value. I enjoy driving the vehicle and I can't recommend it enough to someone looking for another car. I had an amazing dealer (Ramsey Acura in NJ), who continued to provide support to questions that I had between the 2006 and 2009 models. The Bluetooth is clear, the navigation is quick and accurate and I love the iPod integration! Everything is within short reach. Convenience is key, so is grace and power.

Do it again! by Bill Folsom, CA on 02/23/2012. Trim: 2009 Acura TL 5-Spd AT w/Tech Pkg, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Excellent handling and performance. 0-60 is increadable. Get 32mpg on flat hwy and 22 around town. Superb sound system. Have the areo kit on this model with the 19" midnight chrome wheels. Changed the looks of the car dramaticly. Wonderful tech package and the mapping is very helpful. Was not going to get the tech package but after seeing it work, we changed our minds and glad we did. Roomy back seat. Had the drawer installed in the trunk and glad we did.
Cons: The 19" wheels are a little noisy, but just turn up the incredable sound system. No lights in the center console and glove box except when the headlights are on. No use for the paddles, but do not drive widning roads that often.
Overall review: Awesome vehicle. First Honda product and very happy. Have had the car for 1.5 years with 36,000 already. NO PROBLEMS!
