Pros: "Comfortable, handles well, great in snow, looker."

Cons: "Premium fuel is needed"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I have owned several cars in my lifetime and I must say this has been my absolute favorite vehicle. I have had to perform routine maintenance but the car has never broken down on me. Even with 217k miles I will still get 29 MPG on family trips with 4 adults, 1 child and a trunk full of luggage. I have never been stuck in the snow, have never had the car break down on me, or had any component on the vehicle wear out in an unreasonable time. I will be a lifelong fan of Acura because of this car."

Very reliable, even after 15 years.

"I bought my TL as my first car with just under 150K miles on it. I got it fairly cheap, but the car has been anything but cheap. The VTEC engine runs very strong and hard, and is very fun to drive. Im over 170,000 miles and the only problems I've had were a starter (normal for a 15 year old car) and dents from previous owner. This car is very reliable, and if you keep up with maintenance it will last you well over 200K miles. Its got all the bells and whistles such as leather seats and bose sound systems. I will be coming back to Acura for my next vehicle."

Pros: "Powerful, drives well, & still looks great"

Cons: "Some paint & clear coat fades. seal beams dull"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"The TL 3.2 is dependable, safe, still exciting to drive & has a very comfortable ride. Mechanically: drivetrain, engine, suspension, traction and response has been superior. Regular check ups, I have learned, are essential if you plan to drive your car for years. I have an advantage over most. I have used the same mechanic for years and trust him. He works only on Acura & Honda vehicles and is certified by Honda/Acura. The only downside is the seal beams dull & have to be shined periodically and the clear coat is beginning to flake on the front bumper & roof. This is a relatively inexpensive fix. This Acura has been a pleasure to own!"

"Love this car. When it was time to give up my baby, a 1992 Buick Roadmaster (second transmission went at 197000 miles), I bought a 2008 Acura RL for my wife and I inherited the TL. Fun to drive, great pickup and handling. On the open road I average 32 miles per gallon and at one time got it up to 37 MPG by staying 5 MPH under the speed limit and back from the car in front so I didn't have to use the brakes much. All systems still work so I hope to pass the 300,000 mark in a few years."
