Great vehicle with only two exception.

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.

The space is the best feature

My car has a spacious back seat and able to fit 3 car seats back there. The trunk is also spacious and able to fit a single and a double stroller in it. However I am not able to fold either back seat down to elongate my trunk space. I enjoy my navigation system and Sirius. I have the car six years and had to replace the alternator but other than that routine mileage maintenance has kept the car running well, very pleased with Acura

- Kelly S

Very safe, great handling, excellent ride, and reasonable fuel economy given the size and power of the vehicle.

The car rides and handles beautifully. The SH-AWD provides incredible grip and handling. The ride is compliant and sporty. And with all of the features and more than 30 HP, I still get 27 or 28 miles to the gallon on the highway. Lastly, I have not had to make even a single repair to this car. The reliability is bulletproof.

Very sporty! Great handling!

Body style is favorable, handling is easy, inside features are great, all the technology available for the price at the time me. Good mileage, easy on gasoline, very comfortable. The only issue is that the ride could be better. It is a sporty car so it is not necessarily Focused on comfort, but speed. Has a great acceleration,

Make sure to note of all the recalls and that these recalls have been done at the Honda or Acura dealer. Acura preferably.

I previously owned a 2004 Acura TSX. When I was looking around for a TSX, I stumbled upon the TL. I liked that the TL was much roomier and also had a bigger engine which explains its smooth runs on the highways and the ability to overtake well. The interior design and comfy leather seats is a plus.

- Robert C

Love my Acura and would recommend anyone to buy one.

My 2012 Acura tl has given me very minimal problems since I have had it. I have had to replace the alternator once. I keep the oil changes up to date so that has not given me any troubles. Normal tire rotation and maintenance as well. It runs very well and is quite fast.

- Raquel Y

2012 Powerful Acura all wheel drive.

I love the power, the all wheel drive, it is fully loaded very comfortable seats for the whole car. Very reliable and fun to drive. I love the body detail the GPS and navigation. Nineteen inch wheels on all four tires. I love the space of trunk and black color exterior.

- Nubia K

Like the color, have all the technology for a 2012.

No problem good handling around turns. Very fast with the v6 3. 7 litter. I would buy another one in the future. Only problem is just the gas mileage and frequent oil changes due to continuous driving. The seats can be a little uncomfortable for longer trips 8 plus.

- Roland K

Love it. Very beautiful color combo and love the sleek look.

Very comfortable and sporty I love the power that it gives as well as the sleek look. I wouldn't change the all wheel drive for a regular two wheel never again. Well worth the fully package. Very nice and good on gas. It was worth the extra couple hundred.

- Nubia G

It's a very reliable car that's luxurious without being expensive to operate.

I bought it certified used several years ago. It's always been reliable, and has had no major issues. The engine and transmission have never needed any work. It's comfortable, has good performance and features, and gets me where I need to go.

- Not J

It is high-performing and has high quality features.

I love the pickup and power of my car. I also like the fact that it has a built-in navigation system. I don't like that it is so low to the ground because the chassis sometimes scrapes the ground when I go up a steep grade.

- Anele S

This car is reliable and, with proper maintenance, it'll last forever.

I love the reliability of my car. It's stylish and great on gas. However, I don't like the fact that not every device links to my car with ease. Plus, there is no option to mute. Overall, it's an amazing car! I love it!

- Amber G

My car has great reliability and speed.

My vehicle is great on gas mileage and comfortable however I have put a lot of money towards repairs and costly maintenance because of the type of vehicle that it is and needing parts that I can only get at dealership.

- Solei M

Acura's are a little pricey but well worth it since they are dependable and nice looking

- Jan S

It is great on gas and has great features.

I really like my vehicle because it has great features, drives easily, is very roomy, has a sporty look and handles easily.... What I do not like is the ride which is hard and not extremely smooth..

Acura does a good job with their TL line.

The vehicle has a great sound system and comfortable interior. I like the slate gray color and my aftermarket rims. However, I'm not very happy with the speed of the car. Older TLs were faster.

Great on gas and great small family car. very Economical

What I about my vehicle is the fact it is great on gas mileage, quick acceleration and comfortable. I can't think of one thing I dislike about it. It is very dependable and easy to maintain.

One of the most important things about this car is the reliability of the car. I have never had any issues with the car than the usual mileage maintenance.

My vehicle is a great car, this is the second Acura TL I have bought. The 2012 drives like you would expect a BMW to drive but without all the expensive maintenance.

- Miles M

It looks sharp, no complains here this is one vehicle I would buy again.

Very solid safe ride. I feel like if I get in an accident, I will be safe.

It is a comfortable ride with pampering and technology.
