Dashboard will explode with cracks and Acura will pretend like nothing is wrong. I don't care about anything else with this car besides the fact that Acura doesn't stand behind their products when there is a MASSIVE problem happening to LOTS OF THEIR CARS!. Toyota extended their dashboard warranty for 10 years because the dash gets sticky but Acura (supposed to be a luxury car..HA!) turns a blind eye! SAVE YOURSELF DO NOT BUY ACURA!

I've had my Type-S for almost four months now and I'm loving it. Accelerates very fluidly and fast, with torque steer noticable only if you punch it. The interior design is really great and the gps is easy to use, but could be better on the last part of getting to your destination. The braking on it is also phenomenal. They're really grabby, but the brembo generate alot of dust and I'll probably switch them out when they wear. Overall, no regrets about my purchase.

We bought our 2007 Acura TL type S a year ago for $20,000. We paid that much for a used car because we thought we were getting a quality product from a great company. Boy were we wrong. This summer the dashboard started to crack in two places. I has gotten larger throughout the summer. We found online that this is a very common issue for Acura TLs from 04 to 08. We called Acura to try to resolve the issue. It is obviously a design flaw on their part but they were not willing to help out at all. They told us that there was nothing they could do because we are not a 'loyal' acura customer. This is the 3rd Acura I have owned. I am not a loyal Acura customer. Don't buy an Acura!
