I have nothing but amazing things to say about my 2021 TLX SH-AWD ASPEC! It is beautiful, sporty, reliable. It drives like a sports car or a luxury sedan while Always looking stylish. Everyone does a double take. The new model looks so much better! This is my 3rd TL/TLX


Acura has poor quality and awful roadside support

I'm on my second TLX and experiencing the same type of quality issues from four years ago (2015 vs 2019). I recently had another non-start electrical issue and was forced to abandon my car and it took Acura roadside 15 hours to tow the vehicle to a dealership. The diagnosis is it needs a new battery and a starter. This is the second battery related issue in the past eight months. My car only has 13,000 miles and the repair is only partially covered under warranty. Based on my experience, and in speaking with other owners, Acura does not live up to being an entry level premium brand. It's all Marketing. My neighbor had so many problems with her one year old RDX that she traded it in for a Kia Telluride and said the experience was night and day. She reiterated that she would never consider another Acura. I second that.


Solid car

This is my 4th TL/TLX. Least favorite of them. The engine has been great, plenty of power when needed. I do not like the sight lines, no matter how I adjust the mirrors, always blind spots. Wish I'd gotten version with blind spot monitor. There should be more accessory inputs. One USB input is not enough. Overall a good car to drive, but, could've been better.
