2012 Acura TL
- Beats Accord V6
- None Yet
Purchased As New
Almost made the mistake of buying-out the lease on the 2009 EXL V-6, but took a chance on the 2012 TL... end of year 2012 deal only $355 a month with 0 down...1st month and sales tax.
EXL Accord or "Communist One" as I liked to refer to it, looks like the same 21K- 4 Banger to the untrained eye.
The Honda was good-- but the engineers were holding out because the TL-FWD has precision handling. Secondly, the TL's transmission is quick and effortless, its like a sports car compared to a 4 door sedan. The extra 9 HP in the TL feels like 40.
The 2012 TL has nice lines, the "Beak" front nose has been fixed. The "Cracker Jack" rear end with the big smile is no longer. The basic no spoiler version looks classic...
91 Octane gas costs money but the 87 pump gas the Honda used was like comparing water down gas to jet fuel.
I was told the 305 AWD is even better but will cost another hundred plus bucks a month...36K V 45K. At that price I would look into a BMW or Mercedes.
