  • Nice Car but less seating room - 2016 Acura TLX
    By -

    Nice Car to drive but less room for seating if tall driver or passenger riding this car.

  • A sporty economical car - 2016 Acura TLX
    By -

    We usually buy Toyota's or Lexus. Not much of a Honda fan. However I am very impressed by the Acura we bought for my daughter who graduated and got her first job. Pros: Very nice interior, low road noise and good acceleration with 1-2 passengers. The car is understated outside but has a very nice interior with nice leather and fittings. Very economical given the 2.4 liter engine. This was a 2016 closeout lease and I got a very good deal from Prime Acura of Walpole.

  • So Sorry I Have This Car! - 2016 Acura TLX
    By -

    This is my sixth Acura and probably my last. I'm leasing a 16 TLX and wish I read these reviews before signing. The car has the same vibration issue over 60 mph that I've been now reading about in many different postings. I noticed it before picking up the car and was assured it would be taken care of. Big rush to get the car out the door to me and the vibration was overlooked by them. My mistake to take delivery! It's now been back twice...1st time snarky service guy told me not to drive so fast and tires were re-balanced. 2nd time one tire was replaced. The service manager now claims that Acura is working on a fix but has no idea what or when. In the meantime, I have a defective car that I hate. Oh... and the touchscreen display is a nightmare too. If I could get out of this lease without destroying my credit I would do it today. I'm very disappointed and angry!

  • TLX is the perfect blend of features and cost for - 2016 Acura TLX
    By -

    There are higher performance cars out there, as well as ones with more plush interiors. But for a perfect blend of sportiness, quiet, smooth ride, comfort, tech features and outstanding stereo system, and cost, I found the TLX to be the perfect car for me. So much intelligence and consideration for the driver went into this car. I got the 4 cylinder, 2.4 liter, dual clutch 8 speed transmission with Tech Package, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a practical but enjoyable blend of sportiness, luxury, and affordability.

  • Acura TLX - A Great Car - 2016 Acura TLX
    By -

    I was a former Acura TL owner and was blown away by the performance of the TLX. Even though it's a mere 1.5inches shorter, and car is extremely comfortable, quick, and has all of the features of a luxury car at a great value.

  • Best value in it's segment, by far... - 2016 Acura TLX
    By -

    Bought a fully optioned TLX V6 with SH-AWD and Advanced package with less than 700 miles on it. A little history: The vehicle had previously been wrecked leaving the dealership when the teenager driving it rear-ended another car on the freeway. There was no frame damage and the car was repaired at the Acura dealer back to factory specs. Since the kid didn't want a car that had been wrecked before and since 'daddy' wrote another check for $50K to buy another new fully loaded TLX, this vehicle was subsequently sold to an independent used car dealer for about 1/2 the MSRP. Their loss, my gain! This is my 4th Acura and 7th Honda product in recent years and so far I've not been disappointed. Though Hondas have dominated our car ownership experience, our family has owned various models from Chrysler, Ford, GM, Mercedes and BMW over the years and there's reason we keep going back to Honda. The build quality on this vehicle is excellent by comparison to other models that we've owned, across all manufacturers. The ride quality is great and the steering feel is good, though still not as good as the 3-series BMW. The transmission can be a little quirky at times but nothing that's unacceptable. Even though my vehicle was essentially 'new' and I paid almost $15K off MSRP because of the previous wreck, it still would have been a good buy at it's MSRP based on similar cars in the segment with the same features. Is this car the best in it's segment? No, it's not. Does it represent the best value in it's segment? Absolutely!

  • Love/Hate relationship - 2016 Acura TLX
    By -

    Let me start by saying I have mixed feelings about this car. When I first began the lease, I was in love with this car. Great highway fuel mileage, very comfortable, love the safety tech, great night visibility with LED headlights, good amount of power, and with the SH-AWD this car is a unstoppable in snow. Seriously, I have never owned a vehicle that performs so well in snow. I leased my TLX due to the Acura's reputation for outstanding reliability. Unfortunately, I have learned that reliability is not one of the TLX's strong suits. The car has been back to the dealerships 3 times within under a year of owning it. Each time with a list of problems. The fuel pump has been replaced already, entire dashboard of car removed to replace the fan blower motor that screeched every time climate control was turned on. The car is pretty quiet going down the road, just making the many rattles within the car even more noticeable. The blind spot monitoring system on the passenger side acts up, and the adaptive cruise control will turn off randomly, not working again until the car is turned off and started again. At random times the heated seats refuse to work until again, the car has been turned off and started again. I was planning to purchase this car after the lease was done, but that is the last thing I would like to do at this point. I am extremely disappointed as this is not the reliability I was expecting from a $45k car, especially an Acura. I am currently working with the dealership to have this car taken back early.

  • Awesome Acceleration and Combined Fuel Economy - 2016 Acura TLX
    By -

    The 3.5 V6 has awesome acceleration in Sport and Sport+ mode, 0-60 in 5.7 seconds. Not surprising given the 290 HP 3.5L V6, what is surprising is the 31MPG combined city/Hwy fuel economy that I am now getting even with car in Sport mode all the time. This car has an extremely quiet cabin and an awesome 10 speaker surround sound system that sounds like a concert hall in your car. I recommend anybody in the market for a midsize luxury sport sedan give this car a drive and compare to any in it's class. It is many thousands less for more and 5 star safety and the Honda/Acura reliability and resale value I can confirm thru years of resales and trade ins with Acura is among the best of any make. It simply cannot be beat for a luxury sport sedan of this caliber and all that you get especially with the Technology package. Transmission issues reported on the 2015 are non existent on the 2016 and 2017 TLX, Acura upgraded the software and the issues from 2015 are gone, which is why I waited a model year before buying this new TLX vehicle. This is the best luxury sport sedan I have ever owned. The styling is conservative but sharp, the luxury is just what you would want without being over the top, and with Sport+ or Sport mode the 3.5L V6 FWD performance is awesome with documented 0-60 in 5.7 seconds (see zero to sixty website for TLX V6 FWD), it turns on a dime with excellent handling, and with the quietest cabin and smoothest ride you will find. With 5 star NHTSB crash ratings, and IIHS Top Safety Pick+ it is one of the safest vehicles on the road, and with the Tech package collision avoidance warning technology I personally avoided several very close call lane change accidents on my commute to and from work. If you are in the market for a luxury sport sedan and are looking to keep the price at or below 40$K, you will not find a better car in this class as the competitors will charge at least 11- 20 $K more for similar trim levels/options. I am a very pleased happy Acura TLX owner.

  • Enjoy the technology - 2016 Acura TLX

    Everything is extremely good except for some reason they have the worst tires. Performance would probably be much better with a quality high performance tire.
