Editor's Overview

Though aspects of its exterior styling remain polarizing, what’s hard to argue with about the Acura TL is its value proposition among midsize luxury sedans. Of particular note are tech options...

Love the feel of the Acura TL

2012 Acura TL Advance Auto

The car has a very smooth ride, very comfortable leather seating and handles great in city or highway driving. Very luxurious feel in the interior. It has been very low cost to maintain, very dependable. Working with Acura dealership for maintenance has been great, they do not overcharge and do a great job with explaining results of maintenance checks. Very roomy and includes nice bells & whistles. Classic style body, I purchased the car used with very low miles.

Great vehicle with only two exception.

2012 Acura TL

Really enjoy driving this car. It has instant get up and go, which can be extremely necessary sometime with interstate traffic. I only wish the upholstery had held up better, but still really like the car! Even though the car is 6 years old it still has a great, classy look about it. We are not lucky enough to have a dealership locally. The closest dealership is a little over an hour away, which is not that bad, but that is why we will not buy another.

Love my TL! Checks all the boxes and rarely in the shop.

2012 Acura TL Tech Auto

I've had no problems with my Acura TL. I love the ride, both comfortable with a solid feel and handling. Steering is responsive but I wouldn't say up to German luxury standard. Seats are very comfortable and adjustable with solid lumbar support. Engine is responsive with good acceleration when needed. Controls are all easily accessible and simple to operate. Plenty of legroom both front and back seats. High marks for reliability!
