"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)."

"If regularly maintained, this car will give you many years of reliable service. A good drive under all weather conditions, but tends to hydroplane a little starting up on a hill in wet weather. Great on the highway."

"Upfront I was concerned with the cost, but overall I have had routine maintenance and little to no "repair". The car is great to drive - has spunk but is luxury. Looking forward to owning a newer model someday."

I love this car and most everything about it.

"Ever since I bought my loaded Acura TL in 2004, complete with mud flaps, navig, spoiler, gold pkg and tech package...I have never, for one instant regretted it. In 2004, it was a new design year and even in 2014, 10 years later, it still looks stylish and not outdated in any way. It is gently used, < 48,000 mi...mostly in Florida...no scratches or dents and a beautiful Redondo red pearl color. The engine acts and sounds like new; with brand new Michelin tires, it has fabulous pick up, and handles like a dream. With the front wheel drive, it is fabulous in the snow. It is time for me to downsize to one car, and as I have another car only 2 years new, this one will be for sale. I am looking for full Kelly blue book value for my car...best offer dealership or private, get the car."
