History
I bought this vehicle to replace my 1985 Mercedes Benz 500SEC AMG (my truly wonderful wife HATED it's dismal gas mileage, and $120.00 fill-ups).

My TL is a 4-door, 5-seater. It has it's factory 3.2L V6, and 5-speed manumatic. I assumed it would be a reliable, efficient family car. I confidently bought it without a test drive, or any research.

I was IMMEDIATELY shocked by it's 290hp (my SEC had 245), lively steering, AWD, excellent handling, and MORE than capable brakes! I discovered that Acura was trying to compete with the BMW M5.

My TL is also more luxurious than my 20 year older MB was, but needed (as usual for 3rd gen TLs) it's transmission rebuilt at 180K mi.

It averages 46mpg on highways at 80mph.

My 15 year old daughter turns 16 next month, and really likes my Acura! It has safety systems galore.

I recently discovered a loaded 2005 MB AWD S500 at a local dealer...
