Is it possible for a front-wheel-drive car to compete in the largely rear-drive premium performance sedan category? Absolutely, according to Acura, and America seems to agree, making the TL a top selling luxury sedan and Acura's most popular model.

In an attempt to meet the divergent needs of luxury sedan owners, the Acura TL comes in two distinct flavors. Those most interested in comfort can choose the regular TL while the Type-S meets the needs of drivers who want a higher level of driving excitement. Bose versions are based on the ubiquitous Honda Accord sedan.

      Kristyn D The TL is the sexiest sedan ever designed, and is a great performer as well.

      The Camry is a Camry.

      Pair this or the type S with the legendary 6 speed manual and you literally have the perfect car!

      Depends on how heavy your foot is and the driving conditions. In mine I've gotten up to 30mpg during 65mph highway cruising. The worst 18mpg after some heavy footed city driving. I normal average 26mpg with mixed driving and highway speeds up to 85mph.

      I have a question, my uncle bought a 03 acura tl with about 27k miles on it with a salvage title. The trans just started to slip at the 87k mark. How can we check if our car was effected by the faulty trans in this car? Called acura and first they said the swap was done and then they switched it to our car wasnt covered by the extended warrenty.

      I own an 08 TL/w Nav. I can afford the new one but that beak is ugly as shit. However, the 2012 TL is an improvement, the grill looks a lot better. I'm waiting for the new generation 2014 TL to come out next year and I'm skipping this gen.

      I wonder if the designer who created that "beak" look got fired. I think the TL went from a best seller, to non existence, and it's all because of ugly styling.

      I just picked up 04 TL, so far I'm liking it but the only downside is its too heavy. Needs more power in my opinion
