Luxury without the high price tag

Reviewed by Loyal Acura Guy

For those drivers looking for a pragmatic choice but all of the luxurious amenities of a nice vehicle… Consider the Acura TLX. I recently traded in a 2006 Acura TSX with 223,000 miles… So I may have already been presold I'm being loyal to the Acura Brando treated me so well. Make no mistake, the TLX certainly a different car. The TLX has an eight speed transmission, in this case the 2.4 L four-cylinder engine. The car is by no means a muscle car… That gives you power when you needed an extremely comfortable ride. The TLX runs bigger than at TSX predecessor, but still handles extremely well. Most impressive upgrade over its predecessor, is the fuel economy. The 2006 TSX would get 27 to 28 miles per gallon on a given week… Where the TLX four-cylinder will get you 34 to 36 miles per gallon ( assuming a good amount of highway driving). Granted it is early in this car and I have another 210,000 miles to go to get an apples to apples and Al says… But the TLX and I are off to a great start! Highly recommend it.

I love this vehicle. It has all of the luxury amenities anyone could hope for. The only thing I don't like about it is the lack of headroom in the driver's seat. This car handles great!!

Acceleration is an issue. Drive in Sport+ mode

Just leased it. Then discovered consistent hesitation / jerkiness on acceleration and deacceleration in "Normal" driving mode with the "sophisticated" 2 to 4 to 6 use of cylinders for improved fuel mileage. VERY DISAPPOINTING. Rosenthal Acura said all was "normal." But this customer is not happy. Sport plus driving mode seems better. But the dealership did NOT bring this up this suggestion. I had to figure it out testing out the features. Suggest an extreme test drive before buying or leasing. I will strongly consider a USA brand car in 3 years. Also completed Acura survey about DISSATISFACTION and no response.

Mr. Galam was great. He was super nice and polite. The car is great and fun to drive. However, the time it took to finish the finance part of the deal was extremely lengthy. The entire purchase took four and a half hours. I feel like the financial portion takes way longer then it should, especially When there are no problems or issues to work through.
