Car Review: Acura TL, Driving
Cross shopped with G35 and i, was put off by interior of G35 and reliability concerns regarding the i. The 8, miles I've put on the car so far have been a pleasure, possibly one of the best handing and well rounded cars out there. Ride is composed and tight but never jarring except on the harshest NE roads.
No wallowing or floating at highway speeds.
Body roll kept to a minimum by front swaybar. Brakes are reassuring but wear on the quicker side. Steering is well weighted and has good feel.
The list of repairs are too long to see over the 30kms that I put on her. The E-klasse is less fun than my old 5-er but a new times more reliable although I note that MY04 E-classes weren't very reliability wise.
The throttle by wire system has touchy tip in. Headlights are terrific with great projection and sharp cutoff.
Fog lights are weak and not very useful. High beams are good but are halogens.
Best guess is that halogens are used since HID bulbs take some time to warm up, a negative when the high beams have to be flashed. The engine, while lacking grunt down low, has excellent top end, although VTEC point is set too high for my liking kicks in at rpm for a rpm redline.
Engine is smooth for a large displacement 4 cylinder twin balance shafts and sounds good. An easy 30 hp can be found with mild bolt-ons. Engine takes premium only due to the high compression ratio. Manual mode pattern is up for upshifts, down for downshifts opposite of a true sequential gearbox and is responsive.

Transmission will automatically downshift to prevent stalling. No experience with manual version but universally praised for smooth action.
Interior is very well appointed for an entry level luxury car. Power seats manual lumbar adjustment.

Real leather for perforated sections of the seats, synthetic vinyl for the sides. Seat heaters, side mirror heaters, sunroof, HID lights, fog lights, bluetooth calls only are all standard.
Only options available were transmission and navigation. Tan leather shows stains from dark jeans.
Some cheap feeling hard plastics but overall fit and finish are solid. Stock sound system is good but very tough to upgrade head unit is incorporated with climate control. Bluetooth only works for calls, not music.
Added a bluetooth receiver to the aux port located inside glove box to remedy issue.
Reliability has been great, although still early in ownership. Only issue has been 2 AC recharges due to a leak. Overall, a very well rounded car.
People maintaining that they have power and using their power. Otherwise, you are in the same spot with no drive. And system changes take a long time. Frame Nr 1 18 Otto Modell Aut.
Terrific combination of performance and practicality. A great alternative to European competitors. Only major complains are lack of low end power and inability to upgrade the stereo system to modern standards.
