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.

2012 acura tl sh-awd. Great handling.

2012 Acura TL Advance Auto

Very reliable vehicle. Purchased new in 2012; no major issues. Very responsive and excellent handling at all times. Comfort level is very good; suspension is firm and stirring is precise. This vehicle is well equipped with plenty of technology. The hard drive allows auto record a CD from the first time played and then there is no need to keep the CD in the car anymore. The overall quality of this vehicle is great!

Acura Review For The Curious Ones

2012 Acura TL Advance Auto

It drives like a champion and I will always buy Acuras! If you take care of them they will last for a very long time! I do however have to change oil a lot and it shakes sometimes, other than that I really do love it!! If you are thinking of buying an Acura I would definitely say go for it

- Steven F

Acura is a great car to drive and own.

2012 Acura TL Advance Auto

Love the temperature control, heated seats, sunroof and leather seats. Drive really great and everything is within reach. Two driver settings adjust seat to me quickly. Well rated for safety and just a fun vehicle to drive. Need to get out of the way... It has great pickup.
