The 6 speed manual really makes this car come to life. I highly recommend driving one if you can find one, especially the A-Spec edition like I own.

My TL is over 10 years old now and it's still a great car! No problems at all. Complete confidence in reliability - would not hesitate to take it on the longest road trip.
