"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 In 2004, it was a new design year and even in 2014, 10 years later, it still looks stylish and not outdated in any way.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."

"I've always had faith in the Honda/Acura line, but this TL has proved to be the best value ever, and with the added luxuries has been comfortable and extremely enjoyable to drive. If I didn't need more room at this point I wouldn't even consider giving it up. The reliability is exceptional, as you'd expect, and it's never left me stranded."

Just detailed, a hobby of mine.

"I've been driving Hondas and Acura's for over 25 years. You cannot beat the value you get for your money! I am considering a TLX however Acura has moved into the same pricing structure as most manufactures, everything is an upgrade, I liked it when you had a choice of two types, with or without the Tech Package and everything else was standard. Acura is still a great car and a great value!"

"Bought CPO in 2007, only did oil changes, tires and brakes before the 100k stuff (timing belt, etc.) Amazingly trouble-free. This car was ahead of its time, fully loaded with Nav, integrated phone, satellite radio, etc. Great job Acura! Will be looking at another soon!"
