From the Test Track
The TL's slick powertrain returned a good 23 mpg overall. Handling is taut and the ride compliant, but the vague steering lacks feedback. Road noise stands out in the otherwise quiet interior. The rear seat is tight and the well-finished interior is cluttered with buttons. AWD is available. A six-speed automatic is new.

Great Performer, Great Value by muggs on 02/05/2013. Trim: 2013 Acura TL 6-Spd AT w/ Technology Pkg, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Accelerates and handles very well. Great value and reliability from Acura. Good size - not too small, not too big. Full of features you pay extra in other cars (BMW, Audi, Mercedes etc). Technology package is worth the extra money. Getting 23+ MPG combined, even in hard driving.
Cons: Steering is a bit vague but overall is not bad. Front wheels can be overpowered by engine at times, but again, overall this is not a big problem - could be solved by buying AWD but I wanted better fuel economy from FWD model.
Overall review: This is my second Acura, traded up from a 2006 TSX. Needed a bit more room and still wanted a sporty, upscale car. Paid well under the $40k sticker and got a great trade on my TSX. Acura's are underrated - they perform well and hold their value. The 2012 TL styling refresh has improved the appearance and made this car quite appealing. Highly recommend.
