I've purchased a brand new 2008 TL type s this Oct for $7000 less than the market price. The dealership at Libertyville Acura in IL was giving away the car to me to make way for the ugly 09's. I traded in my very reliable, effecient 04 accord coz I wanted a more sporty car. This TL indeed puts a smile in my face everytime I see it, true for the other people who come across it. I've seen several people literally come close to the car, short of touching it. This car has tremendous accleration which creates a growl from the engine, superb handling and cornering. The steering wheel may be too heavy to turn, specially for the females, due to the wider tires it has. Comfort creature amenities such as navi with voice activation, memory seats and vented leather seats make it a wonderful car to drive. Added features such as a back up camera and heated side mirrors that roll down when backing up are a plus. However, I've noticed that there are fewer can holders and there is a lack of storage space for my eye glasses unlike the accord. Fuel economy is not the best (16 mpg city only) but I guess I shouldn't be complaining coz I have a sports luxury car after all. Fan speed in the air conditioning system, I think, rans slower than the accord. Rear seat does not fold down and leg room at the rear is a bit tighter. These comparisons are based on my accord which is a family car and not with a sports vehicle. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my purchase. I got the deal of the year (also got 2.9 APR) and most of all, I got the car I wanted so much.
