- Fast and Smooth, Handles well and great boost
- Low suspension so really shaky
I love this car all around. The value stays basically the same because no one is trading this car in.. I would buy it again in a second, i test drove a 300 series bmw but I loved this car way better..Great features with Navigation etc......

- Peppy, good bang for your buck, roomy trunk, love the way it looks
- Poor turning radius
A car is a car is a car. It's not meant to complete you or fix all of your problems. The most you can hope for is that it doesn't cause you more problems and gives you peace of mind as you drive back and forth to and from your job. This Acura does just that. Sure the speaker sound could be better and I know the rattling is bugging a lot of you (mine doesn't rattle YET)... but I've found owning this car perfectly satisfying. It's got great pep -- ideal for zipping around the open roads of LA (sarcasm) -- it's comfortable, attractive, gets acceptable gas mileage, and the seat warmers are the best. The turning radius makes me swear now and then and I usually swear again when I have to fill its tank with the premium stuff; but other than those two glitches, my language is usually pristine around my TL because I'm content. I've also always enjoyed the experience of buying an Acura as their salespeople are knowledgeable without being pushy or slimy. My family's owned a 1988 Legend (may he rest in peace), a 1994 Vigor (still going strong with 180,000 miles on it), a 1999 TL (remains peppy as ever), and now this 2006 TL. Obviously we dig the Acura and you should too... can't go wrong with a fancy Honda afterall.
Whatever car you end up buying, enjoy it and remember to use your turn signal!...read morehide

- All the standard features.
- no sirius option, key and alarm should be intergrated like the honda accord
This car is an excellent value for the entry level sport sedan market for the price.

- no mp3 player port.
I really have to nit-pic to find something wrong with this car. Everyone I show the car to loves it. I wish it had a port so I could plug in my i-pod, what's the deal with a tape player?? :-) i really feel like it was a great value and the quality of an Acura is a proven truth.

- Power, looks, features, handling, price
- Rough ride, poor city gas mileage, turn radius.
Great value for money! The car is powerful and comfortable at high speeds. Not as 'smooth' as some of the German cars, but fairly refined handling. Wish the ride were a little smoother. Also wish the city mileage weren't so bad-I currently get under 20MPG but expect that this will improve. Highway milege is good ~ 28MPG.
The interior and features are awesome! From the bluetooth phone, to navigation syste, to voice activated control, dual climate control and auto-dimming mirrors, this car has all the luxuries. Noticed rattles at times, but nothing persistent so far. Overall, for the price, this is a lot of car, and great overall quality as well. Hoping for years of great driving!...read morehide

- Decent fuel, GPS is AMAZING, nice stereo sound, EVERYTHING
- No MP3 player, ride isn't the smoothest.
I test drove a BMW 3 & 5 series (5 series is amazing, but very pricy), Lexus ES 330, Hyundai Azera, Toyota Camry, and Avalon (yes I was all over the board). The Lexus drove the smoothest IMO. The BMW had the most gadgets. I thought the Camry and Avalon were cheaply done compared to other models (they're losing ground, trust me). The Azera was a beautiful car, just wasn't sold on the name Hyundai. Finally, the Acura had enough gadgets for my taste, rode decent, and had the BEST price. Yeah, this doesn't ride like a BMW or Lexus, but it isn't in the same class as those vehicles. It all depends on what you are looking for. If you want a nice car, good price, good gas mileage, sharp looking, and decent sellling value....look no further. You will be impressed by this vehicle....read morehide

- Luxurious interior, quick acceleration, sporty look, awsome fuel economy
- Small interior space
For those of you that are looking for a sports car in a luxury sedan look no further. This vehicle is without question the best in its class. It has the feel, look, and performance of a sports car combined with the amentities of a flagship luxury sedan. All this and the Honda quality. What more can one ask for in a car except MORE INTERIOR ROOM!!!
I bought this car for my wife and we both love it! We've got just under 5k miles on it right now and haven't had any problems.
The one downside to this vehicle is its small interior space. Not much room for a baby seat. Our rear facing baby seat prevents the front seat passenger from being able to adjust the seat back. In addition, getting our baby in and out of the back seat is awkward causing some strain on the back.
So if you have a newborn this may not be the car for you. Consider something with more interior space first. Other than that... it's an awsome car!...read morehide

- Everything, power, handling, interior ect. ect.
I have had this car for 6 monthes and love it just as much as the first week. Nothing like driving down the road and pushing it through turns and accelerating down the highway at what ever speed you want. When you accelerate hard the car just wants to go and go and go. You find yourself having to slow down because if you let it it will have no problems going faster.
No rattles at all, but when the windows are down they rattle when you close the doors. Keep in mind this is a luxury sports car and has a somewhat of a firm handling ride so beware. It snowed the other day and I took it out to see how it did. It drove like it was on dry pavement in the wet slushy snow. I accelerated in a turn and the car automatically compensated. This is on the all weather tires..
This car will get 30 mpg on the highway. Nav system is great but it is like all mapping programs, sometimes a local may not choose the same route but overall works great. DVD-Audio is unbelievable, you have to try to understand.
My advise is look at the car and try it. If it gets your heart pumping buy it you won't regret it. But if you are looking for sheer comfort and luxury do not get this....read morehide
