5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Its a great quality car, from a company that stands behind it.
2010 4dr Sedan 305-horsepower 3.7L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Having previously driven a 2003 CL-Type S I have over 7 years of previous ownership experience and over 16 years total driving Honda/Acura products. With regular maintenance these cars are bulletproof and require very little maintenance.
2009 4dr Sedan 280-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
These cars are bullet proof.
2009 4dr Sedan 305-horsepower 3.7L V6

Rock Solid, 19K miles and not a single issue.
2008 4dr Sedan 258-horsepower 3.2L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Everything just works. After 2 years, everything is still as solid as the day I bought it.
2008 4dr Sedan 286-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The car is awesome. It is so reliable and the only thing I have done is get new brake pads and a new battery all these years.
2008 4dr Sedan 258-horsepower 3.2L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Acura (Honda) reputation for reliability and my personal experience with the brands.
2008 4dr Sedan 258-horsepower 3.2L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Acura name - no major issues with over 26k miles on it now.
2007 4dr Sedan 286-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual FWD
In a word, bulletproof. Almost 3-1/2 years of trouble free urban driving and with annual 2800 mile round trips from Seattle to Chula Vista, CA. Aside from free 1st dealer service, zero trips back to the dealer as I do my own maintenance/lubrication
2007 4dr Sedan 286-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual FWD
Nothing breaks ever
Reliability and Durability of the Acura TL: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr Sedan 258-horsepower 3.2L V6

The engine was blowing blue within the first 6 months of ownership. The transmission was jerky from day one.
2005 4dr Sedan 270-horsepower 3.2L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
At 45k miles already have three broken engine mounts, steering rack is leaking and worn excessively, torn control arm bushings, torque converter is starting to fail. Trans will fail around 75k miles.
2003 4dr Sedan 260-horsepower 3.2L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Premature transmission failure #1 @73,900.
