"I drive mostly highway, and did not put a dime into my 2007 Acura TL until almost 150,000 miles when I spend approx. $80 on some type of sensor. I bought the car used with 23k miles on it, and did not even put new brakes until 150k miles. I now have 185k miles on it and so far now I have put approx. $450 into it, not including brakes and tires. I am certainly a believer that Acura is one of the absolute best vehicles made, especially when it comes to what you get for the price. A very reliable and great care to drive. I chose it over BMW and I have no regrets."

"My TL has been a fantastic vehicle... period. Brakes and tires every 50,000 miles and that's it. I average 27 mpg commuting combined driving 70 miles a day. Power, comfort, reliability.. what more does one want? My second TL, my 2003 was just as good and put 90,000 on it before getting the 2008. My dilemma is whether to keep this one after buying a new RDX. Hard to part with such a great car..."

"WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR. ITS A SPORTS CAR IN A SEDAN BODY. DONT COMPLAIN ABOUT THE RIDE COMFORT, THE SUSPENSION IS STIFF TO SUPPORT PERFORMANCE WHEN YOU DEMAND IT. 7 YEARS OLD AND ALL INTERIOR INSTRUMENTS ARE IN WORKING ORDER. THEY DONT MAKE TOO MANY 4 DOOR SEDANS WITH ALMOST 300 HP. MONEY WELL SPENT!"

I LOVE MY TL, ENJOY DRIVING IT EVERY DAY

"I have owned my 2007 TL over 7 years now and it is by far the best car I have ever owned. I absolutely love the way it handles, drives and rides. Got me home in a big snow storm last year that took me 6 hours to drive 60 miles but it did not leave me stranded! Has 152k miles on it and still runs great. I keep it serviced and never had any problems. Before buying my first Honda vehicle, I drove Chevrolet and Oldsmobile products, and there is simply no comparison. I have owned numerous Honda/Acura autos and at 52 yrs old, will never go back. This is the first vehicle that I have kept for this long (other than my 2002 Honda S2000) and I really don't have a desire to get anything else (unusual for me)."
