Racing a 2004 Mustang GT
auto w/ full intake, x-pipe, catback, tune, and Nitto Dr's against my
brother's stock 2006 Acura TL auto. I let off once he gets a car on me.
Close race though. 30mph to 80mph
2008 Acura TL Bronze A2350
People will tell you that when you've made something good to leave it alone
because sometimes doing too much can ruin a great thing. Acura made the
right choice by disregarding this normally proper advice when they decided
to create your new 2008 Carbon Bronze Pearl Acura TL with navigation,
heated seats, and rearview camera. The Acura TL was already a great car
with its powerful engine, comfortable seating, and reliability. But when
those already great features were improved upon, the result was a luxurious
sport car with the perfect blend of elegance and raw performance. From its
immensely sporty looks to its safety features, this car has everything you
need and want in a luxury sports sedan. Plus, with only 18,350 miles,
you'll have many years of enjoyment from driving this great machine. Let's
take a closer look at your new ride.
EXTERIOR: The exterior is covered in a rich coat of CARBON BRONZE PEARL
paint which really does nothing but accentuate this beautiful automobile.
The side sills and front and rear bumpers all help add to the sporty
design. Giving the TL plenty of juice is a 5-speed sequential SportShift
automatic transmission 3.2L VTEC V6 engine with 258 horsepower and 233 lb-ft of
torque. Even with this exciting power, it still gets great gas mileage
rated at 26 MPG highway! The TL boasts 17" wheels with tires in essentially
new condition. There are bi-xenon high-intensity discharge lights with
auto-off feature to help you see where you're going. To make parking
extremely simple, Acura has provided you with a back up camera so you can
see behind you. Additionally, the side mirrors feature an auto-tilt feature
when the car is put in reverse. They are also heated with memory and have
integrated turn signals. The wipers are also speed sensitive so that you
can be safe and see well in even bad weather. Being a 2008 model car, the
car still has the majority of its four year/50,000 mile basic warranty and
six year/70,000 mile powertrain warranty.
INTERIOR: If you've never been inside an Acura TL, you're in a for a treat.
The EBONY color scheme looks simply awesome. The leather trimmed seats,
upholstery, and carpet are all in good condition and the interior has no
bad smells to speak of. The front perforated leather sport seats are heated
for optimal comfort! The leather flows over to the tilt and telescoping
steering wheel with controls for audio, cruise, HandsFreeLink, and
navigation. The navigation system will keep you on the right track as you
head to your destinations and has voice recognition and 8" display. The
navigation also features the rearview camera for backing up safely, and
Zagat survey ratings so you can navigate to the best restaurants. This unit
also houses the AM/FM/XM Satellite stereo with 6-Disc CD changer, MP3
player auxiliary jack, and eight speakers. There have been few updates to
air conditioning in the recent past. The TL, however, has dual zone
automatic climate control with GPS linked solar sensing climate control!
Some other great features are: power windows and locks, aluminum with
carbon fiber-look trim, AcuraLink satellite communication system with
real-time traffic, keyless entry, multi-info display, 12-volt power
outlets, and front and rear cupholders. Your new Acura TL also comes with
mats and one key with remote.
SAFETY: Some of the great safety features available are: 4-wheel ABS
brakes, dual stage threshold front airbags, front side-impact airbags,
front and rear side-curtain airbags, three-point seatbelts, childproof rear
locks, rear child seat tether anchors (LATCH), emergency trunk release,
vehicle stability assist with traction control, front and rear crumple
zones, side-impact door beams, collapsible steering column, and daytime
CONDITION: While our cars are close to new condition, please remember that
they are pre-owned and will show some signs of wear. We will be happy to go
over the car panel by panel with you on the phone for extra details. This
is a spectacular vehicle. Consider, too, that the MSRP on these cars new
was almost $40,000! You will be saving thousands of dollars by investing in
such a beautiful pre-owned model. Ordinarily, trying too hard to improve
something that is good can result in disaster. Acura didn't make that
mistake, though. You'll see just how great an Acura can be with your new
2008 Acura TL.

Acura TL - Kelley Blue Book's Review
Is it possible for a front-wheel-drive car to compete in the largely
rear-drive premium performance sedan category? Absolutely, according to
Acura, and America seems to agree, making the TL a top selling luxury sedan
and Acura's most popular model.
In an attempt to meet the divergent needs of luxury sedan owners, the Acura
TL comes in two distinct flavors. Those most interested in comfort can
choose the regular TL while the Type-S meets the needs of drivers who want
a higher level of driving excitement. Bose versions are based on the
ubiquitous Honda Accord sedan.
