First model year. Multiple reports of broken plastic seat trim. Many complaints about the nine-speed transmission that's paired with the V6 are not reflected in the reported repair frequency, as most repairs tend to be just a software update.
|2015 Acura TLX Gas Mileage: Pros|
|2015||Compared to the Honda Accord, the Acura TLX has stronger engines and different, more performance-oriented transmissions. As a result, fuel economy takes a bit of a hit. Focusing on the four-cylinder, the EPA ratings are 27/36 for the Honda and 24/35 for the Acura. The latter is a nice bump over the 22/31 of last year's TSX, though, and also compares favorably to the MKZ's 22/23. In my driving, the trip computer reported averages ranging between 24 and 36 mpg in the suburbs (the high number when I was especially easy on the pedals) and high 30s on the highway. Of course, if fuel economy is a priority you can get the MKZ in hybrid form. Acura offers no such option. But the MKZ Hybrid is relatively sluggish. If you want a combination of good performance and good fuel economy in the same car (if not during the same drive), the TLX 2.4 has an edge. full 2015 Acura TLX review|
