I always wanted this car since high school. I made my dream come true found a 2008 with under 70 K.To most people this is a downgrade from my previous car but to me it was a upgrade. This is a car I will drive until the wheels fall off . I cannot wait until I put my supercharger inside of it.

It's a great car overall. I love speed and this car has it! Takes off great! It's a manual transmission, not auto. I've taken it for road trips and it's comfortable. Great handles and the reaction is just great. Trunk space is good enough. I have a 2 yr old and the stroller fits well along with camping tents and sleeping bags plus 3 personal bags.

Performance, comfort and reliability exceeded expectations. Most satisfied with this vehicle than others owned. A daily driver pleasure.

This is the best upgrade for those of us that grew up, but not out of the Civic and RSX performance age. A family luxury sedan that you can feel proud of as an adult, but all the fun of the Honda performance, style, control and high raving V-technology - minus the judgments of those around you. Hehe.

Recently bought a 2008 acura tl sport (carbon bronze) used with 125k miles, cant say im not satisfied, iv had a lot of people tell me how it looks more of a year car than a 2008, drivers perspective pretty fast great take offs , spacious, audio system is amazing , only complain no Bluetooth audio , besides that , the car is a great choice , iv had a 2000 civic 2007 g35 , but by far iv really like this car the most, if your a racer its fast but there is faster , you a cruiser , this is a great built up , gas worth every cent.
