"I bought a 2006 Acura TL A-Spec to replace my wife's problematic 2003 Jeep Liberty. After getting used to driving a car, we are both very happy with the TL. It has been rock solid in reliability from buying it with 72k miles up to the current 115k miles. Biggest complaints: - The steering doesn't offer very positive feedback. - Our car does not have navigation, and the dash looks like its from a car built in the '90s. - The clamp style tilt column is cheap compared to the spring loaded GM style tilt mechanism. - Its easy to go well over the speed limit because it drives so smooth and quiet. Overall I am very happy with this car. We were looking for a sporty but practical and reliable daily driver with good mpg (she gets around 26-28 daily driving) and this car met all requirements."

"This is the second acura tl I've owned and I love it. The styling and mechanics are flawless. Plenty of power for all types of drivers the only downfall is how expensive and difficult it is to modify. And blue book value does not show truly how nice these are"

Cons: "Not great gas mileage, bad in snow, disappointing."

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

"I purchased the car after doing some extensive reviews. I found the car at the right price and right mileage. I had my mechanic go over the car before purchasing and it passed. Since I've purchased it 5 years ago, I've had way more problems than I have ever anticipated. The car had a recall on the power steering hose which when leaking can cause your car to catch on fire. The radiator pipe attachment is also a tiny cheap piece of plastic that can easily break off. Any savings I had by doing a long search was overshadowed by the repairs. I live in the north and the car does not handle well in the snow. I've had other sedans that with good all season tires they can handle the snow. This car can not. Any little bit of snow and you are stuck in the all seasons. The TL requires pretty expensive snow tires to go anywhere."

Pros: "great price for a quality car"

Cons: "could use more power and firmer suspension"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"the controls are well placed and easy to decipher;the car drives smoothly and handles bumps and potholes nicely. could use a bit more power for acceleration and could have a slightly firmer suspension for curves. the outside design nof the car is superb and although it is 9 years old, could easily pass for a "new" car"
