My 2008 Acura TL is the best car I've ever owned. I bought it used at over 120,000 miles when it was six years old, and it's still going strong at over 160,000 miles and nearly 10 years old. It has always performed very well and hasn't had any major issues.
Story
During a bad snowstorm, I had to climb a fairly steep hill in order to get home from work. The road I was on had not been plowed or treated yet and was very slippery and icy. I could see several cars in front of me struggling, and most of them finally gave up and turned around to go back down the hill. However, given that I had good tires, the ability to turn off traction control and a low-... (more)
Pros
Reliability. Even at high miles, this car hasn't had a single major issue. The interior components all still work, which seems remarkable given its age and the amount of miles on it. The engine still starts and runs like a car at least half its age and a third of its mileage.
Cons
It doesn't have the greatest gas mileage compared to more modern cars of its class, but it also has a naturally-aspirated 3.2 liter V6, so that's to be somewhat expected. Still, in the nearly four years I've owned it, I've managed to get a combined 27 mpg (mostly highway driving), which while not fantastic, still isn't terrible. The only real gripe I have with the design is that the back seats don't fold down. There is a (very) small door that can be opened that leads back into the trunk, but this only allows very thin long items to be put in through the trunk, making it a bit less prac... (more)

I really enjoy owning my Acura TL. The vehicle feels very solid and in control and really sounds great when you step on it. I usually drive the vehicle as a <30 min daily driver but have taken many a road trip in the car as well. The gas tank will get you between 350-450 miles - depending on how much you like to hear the engine scream. The leather interior is nice, and the quality of the inside trim feels pretty authentic. The speakers in the vehicle are excellent with a wide treble and bass range. Highway noise will reduce the quality of sound, but the quality of sound is much better than some of my previous vehicles. In conclusion, the vehicles stability control is actually pretty cool. I have driven significantly over the speed limit and done some quick lane shifts, and the car does... (more)
Story
Going from ~55 to 90 on accident (it really was! I thought I was only going 80) while passing a left lane slowpoke.
Pros
Quality of construction. All doors in the car are basically counterbalanced so you just gently close doors and they close automatically. Much nicer than older vehicles and or vehicles of lesser quality. Vehicle is pretty quick and sounds fantastic! Speaker system really works fantastic for the folks in the car by bringing the audio to the head level. The vehicle is very comfortable to ride in.
Cons
Maintenance for the car is more expensive than cheaper cars. You need to use premium gas for the car. I have averaged 26 MPG over the last 20k miles (by receipt tracking, not the car computer.) The price of premium at 26MPG basically pans out to 20MPG on regular quality fuel. Do the math from there.

They were very knowledgeable and helpful in every aspect. MY salesman knew the car so well that he was able to tell me about any aspect that I wanted to learn from. He also showed me a comprehensive vehicle history report as well as comparative prices from their competitors. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience!
