Reliable and technologically challenged Acura

It has strange bumps on the steering wheel and doesn't do great when it rains. The leather on the seats gets easily damaged and has strange streaks on it. Large trunk space despite looking small. It does well for long distances such as traveling across the country. The settings for the seats don't always stay and the mirrors sometimes are set the wrong way despite settings. It's got a good GPS system and audio but it's difficult to change radio settings and the air conditioning doesn't always reach the back seats.

Adjustable Seating is Lovely

There are no problems to note. The car was bought used, but to date there have been no issues to note. I like the handling and the dashboard set-up. One very vice feature is the seat controls. I like the ability to adjust the seating with the controls on the side of the seat. It makes it easy to get into a comfortable driving or front passenger position. I am often switching between driver and passenger so being able to get that sweet spot in either the driver or passenger seat is much appreciated.

Only 1,500 Acura TL type s� were made for 2008.

I really enjoy my Acura TL type s. It has awesome reliability (being a Honda), had more than enough features and creature comforts to keep me happy(navigation, heated leather, heated side mirrors, sport seats, sport wheels etc., and the performance is decent as well(being a drag racer it could always be better though). The one thing I love more than anything else about my TL-s is that it is not a common car. Only 1,500 made in 2008 so it's not something everyone out on the road has as well.
