Acura TLX

Acura TLX

About Acura TLX

For 2018, Acura has given its best-selling TLX sedan its first update, and it's a good one. The original TLX did a fine job of establishing itself as a technology-rich, comfortably smooth luxury sedan, but it didn’t stir the driver's soul like other cars in its class. That changes this year. Building on the strong foundation of the first TLX, Acura added gorgeous front-end styling and a compelling A-Spec model that gives the driving experience more bite. Throw in excellent safety features, a strong value proposition, and options like Acura's Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) and a potent V6 engine, and the TLX is the readiest it has ever been to compete with the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Infiniti Q50.

"I purchase the Acura TLX with the technology Package 2.4L at the end of September 2016 and so far I enjoy driving this car. It is so smooth and responsive to the road. I was aware that Acura 2015 version has some issues with the transmission prior to purchase; however, i was told that in the 2016 model those issues where addressed. So far I'm in love with my car and hope that it maintains the Honda/Acura badge of reliability, value, and quality. I test drove other luxury brand of cars and yes they all felt great, especially the BMW3 series; but, the Acura had more features for the price."

"I traded in my 2014 BMW 328I X drive with a stage 1 tuner for the 2018 Acura TLX A Spec. So far the Acura is the better car. The Acura is more comfortable and gets similar gas mileage, when not pushed to its limits. My only concern with the Acura is the navigation system. Acura tried to bring in cutting edge tech for its real time traffic but the technology is not there yet. Other then the navigation issues, the A Apec handles better and is more comfortable than a 3 series. Totally happy with my decision."

"It seems like my new Acura TLX is having issues with it’s ZF 9-speed transmission. It hesitates and shifts hard going from 2nd to 3rd gear. A lot of TLX owners are upset about this and there is currently a 9-page thread on Acurazine about this issue. This same ZF 9-speed transmission is also used by the 2014 Range Rover Evoque, the 2014-2015 Jeep Cherokees, and the 2015 Chrysler 200s. These vehicles are also having transmission issues. Some TLX owners have found a workaround for this issue. However, many owners feel that they shouldn’t have to employ a workaround for a car that can cost up to $45,000. Unfortunately, Acura has not even acknowledged this issue. Several owners have taken their TLX to the dealer only to be told that there is no problem."
