Please Help A Brother With Acura TL 2010 Review by Kelvin30286063(m): 2:59pm On Apr 10, 2020
Hello Gurus, I hail everyone.
So I recently sold my Honda and I'm considering buying a new car.
I have had my eyes of Acura TL 2010 for a while even when I was driving my Honda accord.
Now that I have the opportunity to buy it, I'm seriously considering my peace of mind after buying.
I'll very much appreciate a review of the car. I have watched some videos on YouTube but they are mostly done by white people who don't experience the kind of bad roads we have in Nigeria.

I'll really love to know what car gurus in the house think about this car. I'm thinking of going to inspect it soon as lockdown is over and buying straight if all goes well but I can always change my mind if you guys tell me not to buy the car.

I'm very much interested in the fact that it's a 309hp engine.

One of the things I want to know is the suspensions. I had that issue with my Honda.
Though the Honda doesn't pull legs but the suspension is always very fragile.


If you drive an Acura or you're a guru with cars. Kindly help a brother with your opinion. Thank you all.

It's a nice car that you will enjoy if you refuse to be sold a lemon one! !!

The brand is actually premium/luxury version of Honda which is known for balancing on speed.

OP was asking for actual information, while that mister man is telling us that its Honda's luxury arm. Who doesn't know that? How is it useful information? It's not by force to contribute when you don't know anything.

I personally try to tag those who have more hands-on experience when it comes to things I don't have an idea about.

Welcome heavenlybang alternative moniker the extremely low self esteem personality! !!

It's great to know that you've changed handle as usual especially when you've disgraced your main moniker.

Please continue blabbing on your own; it's your job and what you are known for.

With our crappy fuel, it will be hard to squeeze out all that 309 horses.
If you want to enjoy the handling of which it has the best in its category, get the sh-awd version.
Fuel economy isn't great. It's quite heavy especially the awd version.
If you want to leave heavenlybang in your dust, add a few cans of octane boosters (not injector cleaners ooo), step on the accelerator and watch that car head 0-100 in less than six seconds.
That car is a boss on the highway.
It uses a timing belt so don't buy cheap when it's time to replace. The maintenance minders will tell you when to replace.
You must not use synthetic oil but you must use the correct oil grade.
Some model year tl had issues with warped rotor caused by heavy breaking (my mdx has already had that so now I drive gently grin).
Just take care of her normally and you will be fine.
One more thing, if anything makes your check engine light come on, you will lose the awd capability. Car will simply go to front wheel drive mode.
Suspension is not that bad. Bad roads hurt every damn car even the fabled hilux.
Buy the car and shame a few marque brands on the roads. cheesy

If you drive an Acura or you're a guru with cars. Kindly help a brother with your opinion. Thank you all.

Anyway, OP. This is what I've learnt about this car over the past few weeks.

FWD version gets the 280 HP engine from the Accord. Does not require premium, and has better fuel economy.
SH-AWD gets Acura's top of the line 300HP+ 3.7L. Absolutely requires premium. Worse fuel economy. But drives a lot better. Different exhaust system too, which is very important to me.

The car is based on the 8th gen Accord. Evil Spirit. But it's not quite an Accord.

Body parts are really expensive. And it has considerably more technology in it than an Accord. This isn't a cheap car to own.

The 3.7L burns oil, due to a piston ring defect. There are also known propeller shaft issues.

The interior is excellent. Acura's Panasonic ELS is widely hailed as one of the best in the business, even till now. Definitely better than the Bose Infiniti uses or the Harman Kardon MB used during that era.

The facelift was 2012. That's the car I'd advice you to look at. Grille was changed to something less obnoxious, transmission was changed to a 6-speed.

It's a reasonably reliable car otherwise. The FWD is the much safer option, SH-AWD is for those who actually enjoy driving for the sake of driving.

Good luck, and keep me updated if you go on with the purchase.
