2005 Acura is a beautiful car.

2005 Acura TL 4dr Sdn AT

The Acura tl is a true sports sedan, albeit with front-wheel drive. The tl delivers sharp-handling, a powerful v6 engine, a fully independent suspension, and the latest active safety electronics to optimize driving dynamics. Its engine doles out abundant power, whether for backroad barnstorming or passing other vehicles on the freeway. Barnstorming is aided by great handling and powerful brakes. Freeway cruising is made pleasant by the reasonably smooth ride, through the tl is not a soft cush mobile.

This is one vehicle purchase I have not regret.

2005 Acura TL 4dr Sdn AT

It has over 200,000 miles on it and still runs excellent. Love the fact it is sporty but also has room for my family. If I had to get another vehicle Acura is what I would want to get again. I bought it at q car auction and paid cash for it. Love the heated seats, sunroof, leather seats, the stereo is amazing and is one of my favorite things about my car.

Acura TL 2005 was ultimately a good buy

2005 Acura TL 4dr Sdn AT

After 10 years had to replace engine. Then, 5 years after, replaced car computer. Car is 15 yrs old and every month something comes up. Time for a newer car. It had a good run, but cost of maintenance has taken its toll. I do love the trim, which was changed by 2008. I still see many operating on the road. That tells me overall a good buy.

Reasons Why I Love/Hate my 2005 Acura TL

2005 Acura TL 4dr Sdn AT

I have a lot of problems with my steering. There seems to always be a problem with my power steering tank. The heated seats in the winter are a nice added touch to the car. I also have issues with the car's AC, even with coolant I can not seems to get it cold in the car which makes it hard to drive in the summertime.

Bluetooth features also the amount of space throughout the car.

2005 Acura TL 4dr Sdn AT

Air conditioning does not work. Drives smooth with a nice pick-up. Nice plus features are seat warmers and there's a lot of space throughout the car. There's always Bluetooth for the radio where you can hook your phone up to listen to your personal music and also able to make phone calls without occupying your hands.

Windows go down on its own

2005 Acura TL 4dr Sdn AT

It's really on how you take care of your car. You have to treat your vehicle as if it yourself. But my car is very reliable. I like how my windows can go down on its own. Drives smooth. I just bought brakes for them and total it was like 50$ , I have to buy shocks for them and that will cost about 138

Car works great with minor issues

2005 Acura TL 4dr Sdn AT

The car generally runs very smoothly. It accelerates very quickly and the breaks work excellently. The cruise control button does not work anymore which is a bit annoying but I can overlook. There is a problem though that makes me go through tires very quickly. Other than that the car runs great.

- Abigail O

Smooth shifting transmission.

2005 Acura TL 4dr Sdn AT

Comfortable ride. It has a great stereo system, along with satellite radio, which sounds great as well. Has really nice horsepower, and with very smooth acceleration as well. The city mpg could be better, but is not terrible. I like the charcoal paint, and does look best with tinted windows.

- Ron H

The 317,000 mile Acura tl.

2005 Acura TL 4dr Sdn AT

Acura tl is comfortable, gauges are easy to understand. Performance is good, transmission is smooth, hp is adequate. Gas mileage is decent. Room for 5, trunk is good size. Visibility is excellent. Ride is good, but road noise is an issue. Car if maintained can exceed 300,000 miles.

- Jeff M

Wonderful car for anybody

2005 Acura TL 4dr Sdn AT

We have had the car for over 3 years no, with out any major issues. Upgraded the brakes because it was going through sets of pads in 18k or less. We have put almost 40k miles on it with out issue. Still gets 25mpg combined. 185k miles now, will need a transmission in the next 20k miles

- Drew kopcho

My vehicle is very clean inside and out. I take pride in my toys.

2005 Acura TL 4dr Sdn AT

Since I've had my Acura I've had no issues. I've had my car for a year so far and have put 16000 miles on it. It's very reliable so far as I had an old BMW before that had a lot of issues. The only thing I had to add to it was a Bluetooth radio so I can listen to my Apple Music!
