      I really like this video. Very artistic. I was thinking of getting a 2012 TL. Seeing this video clinched the deal. Great car and I would definitely take it over the TLX. Thank you Steve!

      I love the looks of the updated 2012-2014 Acura TL, and I like everything else about the car except for three things that I wish were even an option... This is just personal preference, but first is now one of my favorite features after getting used to it... Is Adaptive Cruise Control. Second is HID Xenon High Beam Headlights. Third is Automatic Windshield Wipers. I care about the auto wipers the least of the three, but I don't understand how you can get these three features on a 2010 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 Sedan, but you can't even get any of these features as an option in a fully loaded 2014 Acura TL 3.5 or 3.7 model. With how nice these cars are, you'd think it would at least have this stuff available as an option for the money you're paying to load these cars up when they're new. No joke, my old 1999 Buick Park Avenue even had automatic windshield wipers. Anyway, it's not the end of the world, but I wouldn't buy this car mainly because of these features it's lacking. Unless I went for a used and rare 2012-14 6 speed manual TL SH-AWD model... I could always have an aftermarket 4300-6000k HID high beam kit installed in it. I'd still miss the adaptive cruise, but not as much in a 6MT model because no car with a manual has this type of cruise control. Anyway, I really enjoyed the video. I definitely gave it a like.

      I meant "Rain Sensing Automatic Windshield Wipers". That was a pretty cool and high tech feature to have in a Buick from 1999. That was a really nice car that never gave me any problems. Best riding car I've ever owned by far.

      You are actually correct. I have a 2012 TL. When I had it in for some routine servicing, they gave me a 2017 TLX on loan and I have to say I like my version a lot more. Like you said, a more solid appearance and my interior is nicer in my opinion since it still has lots of buttons as opposed to a touch screen. TLX also has that idiotic push button gear shift and eBrake which I absolutely hate.

      Have had a 2004 TL, and 2010 TSX V6 Tech, and now a 2012 TL SH-AWD Tech (wish it were the Advanced), and I absolutely love the feel of the SH-AWD. The car feels solid, super stable, it's quick, smooth, quiet, just a really nice car. The 6 speed transmission in Sport mode shifts surprisingly quick for a standard Tiptronic transmission. The car feels quicker than the numbers suggest in publications.

      Just purchased a Bellonova white pearl Acura TL with the technology package. I had to wait a long time to be in a position to buy this car, and I can honestly say that this is one amazing vehicle and we'll worth the wait!

      Bought an Acura TL in February of 2012. After nearly three years, I have to honestly say it is the best car I ever owned. Fantastic value for the money. The car looks good, handles great, has an awesome ride and has a fantastic and user friendly interior. Definitely GREAT value for the money.

      I was about to buy acura tl but, it looks shitty when seen in person
      . I decided to go for nissan maxima which looks better and rides better. Nissan maxima is comparable to Tl and lexus Es 350 and maxima out run those car in design.

      You're right, I actually crossed-shopped the Maxima and a TL SH-AWD about a year ago. I wound up going with a Maxima SV w/ premium package. Largely because of all of the options and lower price. But to be honest the TL is a step above it and if I was willing to spend a bit more I would have taken the TL.

      No you have it back words. Hyundai Sonata is in caparison with the Nissan Altima not Maxima. Sonata is known as a full-size sedan and Nissan Maxima is known and falls under Premium car category. Lexus ES 350 and Acura Tl also falls under the premium car category. get your facts right brother.
