Outdated features but good driving.

This car is great and mine is in good condition, but it is old and therefore does not have many of the features of newer cars. This car does not have Bluetooth or AUX capabilities and therefore is hard to listen to music from your phone in the car. It does come with a hand-free link option, which allows one to take calls from their phone safely and hands-free. It is a very smooth drive and is very quiet compared to many other cars. It has a large turning radius, which is a downside and sometimes makes parking difficult, but overall a very nice car.

- Marin M

Good budget option for luxury vehicles.

The 2005 Acura tl is a great vehicle for someone looking for luxury on a budget in 2018. With heated, leather seats, Sirius XM compatibility, and spacious area, the Acura tl is a great vehicle. Some problems I have run into are unreliable volume on the radio system, fraying of the leather seats, and the lack of a sunglass holder. Newer Acura models in 2018 will have more to offer in the way of computer technology and up-to-date features, but the 2005 is a good choice for someone shopping on a strict budget.

The front dash is crack from the sun.

The only issues that I have had with my 2005 Acura to is problems busting rims hitting log holes on the roads. We live on a deadens road so the country does not like to keep our road nice & paved, I have to request for them to come out for anything. My Acura has 285, 000 miles on it & it is great just started having the a/c not as cold as it should be. It is been kept up to date on servicing & it is not that expensive to have it done a king’s Acura dealership.
