The 2018 Acura tlx is an amazing luxury car.

The 2018 Acura tlx that I own has not had any problems thus far. It is a very reliable vehicle and it is very comfortable. It has two touch screens on the center console. It also has lane assist and blind spot assist. These features are very useful when taking a long drive on the highway or interstate. The gas mileage is also average compared to other vehicles.

- John F

Comfortable, and fuel efficient.

These models are usually quiet, comfortable, and fuel efficient, and they're among the most reliable cars made. Following close behind Lexus, which scored 79, are two rivals: Acura, the luxury division of Honda, and Audi, Volkswagen's luxury brand. . . . Plus, Audi models have shown improved reliability.

- Alex A

Everything is within the drivers reach and offers additional radio controls.

The Acura needs a little more seating room for the driver and has poor blind spots. Its has great performance but requires premium gasoline. It has a superior sound system and great headlights and ample trunk storage. Overall it is a sharp vehicle that is surprisingly affordable.
