2012 acura tl Reviews and News

2012 Acura TL
2012 Acura TL
Evolution has been kind to the Acura TL. Although we judged the all-new model, launched in 2009, as cold and uninspiring, the company spent the last three years continually refining, reworking, and improving its mid-size offering. Suspension revisions, which arrived in 2010, improved handling, and an available six-speed manual transmission endeared itself to buyers looking for a premium performance machine. Arguably, the 2012 model -- which actually arrived at dealerships in early 2011 -- is the best TL yet, thanks to another round of polishing. Perhaps the best example is the exterior -- the car's ungainly, beaklike nose has been abolished, replaced by a more conservative grille and new, proportional front and rear bumper fascias. The makeover isn't quite as extensive inside, but the optional technology package does toss in luscious Milano leather seating surfaces. Beneath the skin, a six-speed automatic transmission improves fuel economy, and it's also a little smoother shifting than the outgoing five-speed unit. Front-wheel-drive TLs continue to use a 280-hp, 3.5-liter V-6; stepping up to the all-wheel-drive model forces an upgrade to a potent 305-hp, 3.7-liter six-cylinder. Enthusiasts will prefer the latter, but not simply for the power: the torque-vectoring driveline increases grip in cornering. Better yet, it's also the only way to opt for that crisp, slick-shifting six-speed manual.
2012 Volvo S60 Small Overlap Crash Side View
Following the roof crash test in 2010, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is adding yet another strict test to the Top Safety Pick award criteria: a revised frontal crash test. After evaluating a handful of new vehicles, the Volvo S60 and Acura TL earned good ratings in the new test.
2012 Buick Verano Front Three Quarter Night1

Siri For IPhone 4S Remote Car Start 2
It seems Siri, the personal assistant for the iPhone 4S, is constantly learning to adapt to your individual needs. At least one person has gone beyond the mundane burger-joint searching and movie time listings to teaching Siri how to remotely start his Acura TL.
2011 Nissan Altima 01
September was similar to June, July, and August 2011 for Japanese automakers, with Nissan again increasing sales, and Toyota and Honda still struggling to keep up. Though production for  returning to normal in September, for the first time since the Japan earthquake and tsunami in March, it appears that getting back to pre-earthquake sales performance may still take some time.
2012 Acura Tl Sh Awd Advance Front Left Side View
The Acura TL is an excellent car, and duly impressed my family when I chauffeured them to a Father's Day dinner. The TL manages to blend impeccable comfort with enthusiastic performance. One moment, the TL is a subdued large sedan with a comfy ride, gentle transmission shifts, and slick styling. The next it's a snarling sports sedan, with prodigious acceleration from its V-6, tight steering, and a transmission that's eager to jump between ratios.
