CHECK OUT THE NEW ACURA TL:
As we hammer the 2009 Acura TL down some of Malibu's most challenging
canyon roads, the big sedan is handling itself well. It carries enough
speed through the corners to make us a little nervous, but the lack of tire
squeal makes it clear that we're far from pushing its limits.
Jamming this TL into a hairpin doesn't upset it either. The brakes scrub
off plenty of speed and the transmission executes perfect, rev-matched
downshifts. When we flat foot the throttle on the way out, the newly
optional Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system puts down all 305
horsepower of the
3.7-liter V6 to the pavement without a single chirp of the tires.
When we finally hit leisurely traffic on Pacific Coast Highway, the TL
returns to luxury sedan mode. The cabin goes silent, the transmission
smoothly sifts through the gears and the suspension soaks up everything
short of a sinkhole. We're not surprised, as this is the classic Acura
formula — admirable performance coupled with high-tech luxury, and now
the TL has a little more of both.

Acura really needs another home run, similar to what it got in 2004 with
the new TL and TSX at the time.

model firmly attempts to stamp the notion of Acura performance into the

Acura TL review from Consumer Reports
The TL is a nice upscale sedan but since its 2009 redesign, it no longer
stands out from the crowd. For 2012, the styling is slightly tweaked and
the transmission got another gear.
