- Look, Style, Class
- I wish I got better gas mileage
Purchased As New
I have had this car for 3 months now and I love it. I upgraded the suspension (A-Spec) and now it handles even better then I could have ever imagined (not that the original susp. was bad). I have fallen in love with the White Diamond Pearl and the two tone interior. The Navigation is great, the XM is great, not to mention the amount of power that this car has... amazing. When I want to get up and go... this car will do what ever I ask of it.
I am so happy that my last TL (certified pre-owned from DCH Acura in Wappingers) was a lemon because I would have never found out how great this 08 Type-S is.
I am in the process of putting on the full A-Spec body kit too. This car is a must have for any car enthusiast....read morehide

- Sleek look. Very smooth ride. Good acceleration. Comfortable interior.
- Turning radius is on the wide side.
Would purchase again in a heartbeat. This car is an excellent value, performs well on the road and has a great interior.

- Unparalleled balance of performance, great looks, value and its still a Honda (awesome quality)
- If you step on it, mileage can be poor, but if careful up to 30 on hwy. Voice control on NAV
I am soooo glad I didnt wait for the 2009, those truly looks ugly and will be alot more!. funny to see the 09 mazda 626 looks like a TL clone in/out. For 36k OTD for TLS with 120k warranty, I am a happy camper, very much so after almost 10k of fun with it. Be careful if you truly step on it. torque steer can scare you!...read morehide

- Handles exceptionally well considering it's a FWD, good acceleration, great steering feedback
- Gas mileage is a little on the iffy side
This is an exceptional car that has truly exceeded my expectations. Great acceleration and handling, even though it's front wheel drive, interior is very well crafted and the car just looks absolutely great. However, people who buy this car expecting a car with a cushy ride should stay far, far away. I used to own a 1997 Accord LX with an aftermarket suspension so the stiff ride doesn't bother me. I've yet to experience the "rattling" some people are complaining about....read morehide

- Bigger bang for the buck!Compared to other cars in its class TL-S offers more features for the price
- Windows, dashboard rattle a lot and brakes sometimes clank. Transmission not very smooth.
Overall a great car except for the rattles which can be irritating at times. Previously owned 2006 TSX.

- Fast, Sport but yet, still Classy
- Stock "S" Rims (Get the A Spec Ones)
Overall, this car is an unbelievable value. For 286 HP, I regularly get 28-30 MPG on the highway. The exhaust has a nice sound to it. The Acura NAVI is one of the best in the industry as well (works while driving!!!)

- Amazing Looking Style, Quad Exhaust, engine, sound, Best deal for the option you get.
- So far only gas mileage is what i dont like, backup camera seems useless with glare all the time
I have just pick up this mint 2008 White Diamond Pearl, this car is AWSOME!! this is the best car you can get within this price range without any other company like lexus and infinti charging you an arm/leg for option, this S is got EVERYTHING, from navi to back up mirrors, paddle shift is very nice as well. 3.5 V6 with 286hp 256 tqr, oh my god, i said it 256 tqr?! is this a honda?! i have traded my 07 S2000 and i don't miss it 1 bit.
Sound system on this car is very nice 5.1 ELS that also plays DVD audio discs, plays mp3 cd's.
FWD on this car is perfect so far, i have not break in the car yet so i didn't push it hard, but under hard gas, i did not suffer much from tqr steer. The only bad i can say about this car is gas consumption, but what do you expect a 3.5 V6 almost 300 hp....read morehide

- Everything. Don't pay for extras because this car already has everything
Great car for value. Looked at BMW, Lexus, and Mercedes - too expensive for everything that would have been includedon the type S. Better value for type S and I like the car better. More room than the IS 350 from Lexus. More is included than the BWM 3 series or Mercedes C350.

- styling, engine, solid feel
- fuel economy
I absolutely love this car. I have owned 2 previous BMWs and decided to go test drive the Acura before I bought my next one. After I had driven them both, I felt like the BMW handled a little better, but I loved the feel of the Acura and that amazing engine that comes in the s type. Price wise, the Acura was also a much better deal as everything is included.. even the GPS. I have been really happy with the car and love the performance and ride. My wife drives it alot also and says she likes it better than the BMWs ( we had a 325 and 328 previously. If only the gas mileage were better it would be the perfect car....read morehide
