Reliable, inexpensive and luxury.

My Acura tl has been very reliable. I haven't had any problems with the car. I change the oil, rotation of the tires and just maintaining the car. I have leather seats that are perfect and also heated seats for the winter time that makes the biggest difference when it is cool out. The navigation is a great feature to have when your traveling or just around town.

Lots of fun to drive and gets great gas mileage for a v6.

I bought this car used but I love the speed and look of this car. The only problem I have had is the tire pressure measurement system sensor keeps messing up but that does not do anything to the car's performance. The paint on this car is a two toned black looks blue in the right light lots of compliments on the paint which came original to the car.

- Alicia S

Great on gas mileage plus has a lot of room to seat a family of five.

My car is very good on gas mileage. . The car has heated seats, ac, 5 CD player plus satellite radio. The vehicle also has a sunroof. The car is very fast. I really like the car because it has a very huge trunk. The car has cruise control. The trunk is very big in case for travel to carry on a lot of luggage.
