We finally get to test drive this 2007 Acura TL Type-S. Boasting 286 horsepower and 256lb/ft of torque from a 3.5L VTEC V6 this is one of the great luxury sport sedans out there.

This particular car is stock other than a custom exhaust.

      What is the ride quality in these cars? Are they smooth? Not floaty-boaty, but comfortable?

      That would be called the "Stage 3" exhaust modification on AcuraZine, just for reference.

      +lemony sneaky This car had a custom exhaust, mid-muffler delete and resonator swap to Dynomax 24215. Not too loud but enough to boost the tone.

      Does the 05 TL come with touch-screen nav system? I'm getting a good deal on one: ($5k, it has 100k miles on it, and it has a salvage title but inspected and is in great condition). Should I go for it? Thanks man

      +mplsridah The 05 comes in both base and navi trims. Whether it comes with nav or not depends on the trim level of the car. For 04-06 cars be weary of a bad auto transmission, they are weaker than the 07-08 counterparts. At 100k miles there is a major service for timing belt, water pump etc that will run near 1k at a dealership. For sure do some research before buying. Good luck!

      just recently bought an 08 type s with a spec kit, and i love the car and think its very well made. however, two issues. one, i think acura/honda could have done a better job of extracting more power from the engine. a 3.5L NA engine could easily have been high 290's, esp given the inifiniti G and lexus IS both come in the 300hp+ range. second, the transmission should have been RWD or AWD. the steering is good, handling is fine and the car drives well. but its a little stiff if you're  not accustomed to FWD. acura could have done better. other than that, great looking car. deserves major points for styling cues.

      +hezamakiah Only if you are one of the lucky few that own one with a 6MT. Otherwise people trying to look for one now is like looking for a unicorn.

      Still an awesome car years later. No idea why Acura doesn't offer a Type S every year.

      +POV Automotive Test Drives Agreed but they need to follow Audi, BMW, and Lexus when it comes to performance branding. Audi always has an S model, BMW always has a 335i M Sport, and Lexus always has an IS250/350 F Sport. The M3/M4 seems to make steady appearances. Acura releasing a Type S or R once in a blue moon just isn't going to cut it.

      +Jacob Palmer Acura leaned more towards the older customers for a while now, the 4G TL was a huge disappointment. They are going back to the sporty/tech ways though.The new TLX brings back some of this 3rd Generation styling so they are on the right track. With the new NSX coming soon I'd keep an eye out as they may even bring back the Type-S for the TLX

      +John Smith It is not exactly possible in an automatic. The neutral area blips the throttle when going to drive from reverse. It is the same when going into reverse from park. If the car did not have the neutral gear before drive, it would stall the engine. Imagine having a manual tranny and putting the gear shifter into 1st from neutral but you didn't blip the accelerator while releasing the clutch.

      The only way it would be possible is if you drop in a 2010 TL tranny into this model. But the computer probably won't recognize it.
