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"

"I love this car! Mine is a 2006 with 6-speed manual. It is fast and I have surprised a lot BMWs when they decided to try to zip past me. Feels very secure at freeway speeds. Handles well with minimal lean in corners and never loses its grip. My only complaints about handling are that it has a lot of torque steer and it could turn quicker. The shifter is as smooth and sweet as any I have used, including my Miata--throws are only about a half inch more than the Miata and smoother. Comfortable, rides well. Still looks great 8 years later. Extremely reliable, gets 20 mpg around town, 30 on the highway. Lots of convenience features--I was so happy to find that it has fog lights!"

"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..."
