My 2010 Acura TL had five map color schemes that you could adjust to get the best viewing experience.

16 Jun

however, since day one I've been having noise issues.

30 Apr

Another side note: the road noise from the tires was also worse on this 2nd-Gen than the 1st-Gen.

22 Jul

My other small gripe is the gas mileage.

30 Apr

The only negative I would say about this car is that the fonts on the instrument panel are too small.

17 Mar

Also, Acura should fire the graphic designer or engineer who decided on the fixed daytime map color scheme and use of small white text outlined in black on a light background.

27 Dec

My previous car, an Acura TL proved so reliable that I drove it for 15 years, over 200,000 miles with very minimal repairs.

26 Jun

Only 4 star on comfort due to louder than expected engine noise.

26 Mar

I have 3 major complaints: 1. Noisy.

22 Oct

Took it back to the dealer and they couldn't recreate the noise.

20 Oct

Front brakes make noise and you can feel the abrasive rubbing.

31 Aug

Shortly after purchasing, I was driving in mildly damp conditions and I heard a grinding noise in the front end as I came to a stop.

28 Apr

White noise coming out of the speakers after the car has been stop for over half an hour.

5 Mar

It feels cheap and unsubstantial; noisy impacts with road imperfections, uncomfortable seats all around and it handles like crap with the steering going from completely numb to overloaded in turns with poor progression.

29 Feb

but remain disappointed that the brakes squeak every time that you start the vehicle until it warm up.

8 Feb

Unfortunately, Acura’s answer is cheap and shoddily upholstered leather seats where the leather is wavy and pulling and puckered along the stitches, has poor interior lighting, and delivers excessive road noise and tire roar.

25 Jan

Purchased my new RDX less than a month ago and have had consistent issues with the brakes squeaking.

5 Jan

The brakes squeaked all the time at low speeds since the day we drove it off the lot.

25 Nov

Acura has known about problems with the brakes and electronics for two years and has no fix.

22 Oct

The dealer knows it is a problem so they changed out my rear brake pads.

20 Oct

11 Dec

The car had 500 miles on it - why would I bring it in saying the brakes squeak and want them to fix it if they didn't??

25 Jun

Also, the brakes make some noise initially when wet or cold,

10 May

The gas mileage is lower than I expected, and that’s the only thing that I’m disappointed with.

7 Mar

The turbo is also loud and the gas mileage is not good.

20 Jan

My only issue would be the gas mileage as for a 4-cylinder I only get about 21 MPG with a decent mix of city and highway driving .

22 Sep

Gas mileage is as advertised; not superb, because the AWD option does add more weight,

31 Aug

After driving an Audi with a 3.0L supercharged engine which gave me 23 - 24 around town and a whopping 34 on the highway, there's just no excuse for this poor mileage.

13 Jul

Cons: Fuel Economy (15 mpg, mostly city driving of 200 miles), Styling (I wish A-Spec would come with black side mirrors, black roof and black emblems/badges), No auto fold side mirrors, Blind Spot assist is not on the side mirrors.

Perhaps Acura was trying to increase the MPG by decreasing the sound insulation.

7 Dec

I ended up going for a used RX350 not because of the interior issues or the mpg.

28 Oct

Also had a battery failure after 14 months.

2 Aug

After three months, I’m very pleased with all aspects of my RDX (except the speedometer) and the occasional system failure that prevents the steering wheel toggle switch from working properly.

Also, it handles and accelerates better than our TL.

2 Sep

I loved almost everything about my TL including its acceleration, sound system, and ride.

26 Jun

Only 4 star on comfort due to louder than expected engine noise.

22 Oct

Took it back to the dealer and they couldn't recreate the noise.

18 Jul

It literally started making a loud fan noise that drowned out both the ac and the radio- the service dept could not figure out why it was making that noise and they sent a video to Acura and Acura told them to send them the transmission to them to"study".

26 Jun

Developed suspension noise at around 7K miles which dealer tracked down to loose nut not properly torqued during build.

26 Jun

We picked it up a month and a half ago and immediately returned it to the dealer with a horrible vibration.

11 May

A bit too noisy (ending noise piped into cabin--stupid).

26 Mar

No squeaks, creaks, or cheap annoying noise.

23 Feb

This is a 40-50k car that almost as soon as you drive it off the lot the brakes start squeaking and they can’t fix it.

23 Feb

This is an expensive small suv for you to drive it off lot and have the brakes squeak.

8 Feb

Unfortunately, Acura’s answer is cheap and shoddily upholstered leather seats where the leather is wavy and pulling and puckered along the stitches, has poor interior lighting, and delivers excessive road noise and tire roar.

20 May

The brakes are soft, acceleration is delayed at times, the infotainment center is a disgrace for a $49,000 luxury suv.

5 Jan

The brakes squeaked all the time at low speeds since the day we drove it off the lot.

26 Nov

I’ve never had a car break down at 5500 miles— it’s embarrassing after paying a premium for a vehicle like this.

I have a lease of a Acura RDX 2019, and this car is a nice drive until the brake start to sound like grinding at every release of brake and when push to stop.

27 Jan

I had the brake pads changed, still the brakes continue to squeak .

7 Mar

The navigation in this vehicle is terrible.

7 Mar

From day one the navigation system did not work.

6 Mar

I Have a 2019 RDX and from day 1 I have complained about the navigation system.

31 Dec

Otherwise, there were minor glitches that required a dealer fix - the heated steering wheel that didn't heat - and a software update to fix a balky navigation system.

3 Oct

The RDX dealership navigation system is awful to use.

7 May

The navigation is cumbersome and difficult to use.

13 Mar

We both hate the GPS, the touch pad is not user friendly.

5 Feb

The navigation system is awful and still can't connect an Android phone to car.

27 Jan

I found acura's system doesn't make you take your eyes off the road to switch music and nav.

20 Dec

The infotainment system has frozen multiple times while the vehicle is in motion, emitting high pitched beeping noises, and rendering the entire infotainment and navigation system inoperable.

12 Jun

The engine is so loud and the shifts are so random to me.

18 Jul

It literally started making a loud fan noise that drowned out both the ac and the radio- the service dept could not figure out why it was making that noise and they sent a video to Acura and Acura told them to send them the transmission to them to"study".

18 Feb

although the transmission can be a bit jerky in the 1-2 and 2-3 upshift under moderate acceleration.

5 Feb

We purchased this car in April, 2019 and thought we had purchased a reliable car until January, 2020 when we were driving down highway and begin to heard a noise and then car would not shift out of 2nd gear.

27 Jan

I have contacted Acura on several occasions regarding my issue with the transmission.

16 Jan

Two days later, and a wheel bearing replacement despite mention of the transmission, they’re replacing the whole transmission.

16 Dec

Read other people’s reviews regarding all the trans problems.

14 Dec

It shifts constantly making for an unsmooth and noisy ride.

17 Sep

The shifting is a loud POP- seeming to be the body shifting all the weight or stress of the car to the large opening of the sunroof.

29 Aug

N/A

26 Nov

Once or twice the radio has just a failed to boot at all.

22 Oct

The radio antenna isn't the greatest either.

14 Dec

The satellite radio takes 2 minutes or longer to connect rendering the controls useless.

2 Nov

When it “freezes” I have no radio, so no music, no opportunity to use the navigational system, no calls, so the system is useless at this point.

19 Sep

totally broken infotainment system which the dealership cannot fix and now have filed corporate complaint - dropped calls - loud popping from speakers - switches from Sirius to FM radio on its own - creates dangerous distractions - horrible!! !

13 Sep

though is that it only sounds great from a digital source such as satellite radio.

3 Aug

* I was stranded in a strange neighborhood very late at night alone,.. navigation stopped working,.. and radio was on and would not go off.

15 Jul

started with the radio not working, gps doesn’t work, terrible gas miles!

24 Jun

Radio was still on station “X”!!

I had been driving an Acura TL and then TLX's for the past 13 years and I enjoyed most of the features across the board.

4 Apr

Trunk is a little small, and a solid fold rear back seat instead of a split is disappointing at this price point.

6 Aug

Only small complaint is the small fuel tank.

16 Feb

I didn't like going back to my small ILX after driving it for a couple of months.

13 Feb

but has all the functions of the other models, although the camera is not as good, and the gas tank is smaller, But it handles well, and has sufficient pick up.

5 Jul

Now that the kids are older and driving themselves or are rarely with us in the car, the small backseat is not much of an issue.

23 Jan

Gas tank may be small as I fill up more often than my Mercedes C300.

6 Aug

Only small complaint is the small fuel tank.

19 Mar

but did not offer me a rental or replacement instead just let me drive the car and make sure to refill the tank every 85 miles.

My TL was dependable and fun to drive for 14 years.

Curry Acura in Scarsdale NY , treated us great , shopped this car and the Lexus NX , ive always owned Honda and Acura so we were biased towards Acura , feels like a solid car and easy to see out of and sits higher than my TL so better in traffic

28 Jun

but they let in a lot of road noise), and not too expensive to keep up.

10 Jan

Two big negatives are road noise (common to Honda's IMO) and electronics.

29 Mar

One negative: Road noise, or wind noise, is bothersome.

20 Mar

I have only one negative to report and that is road noise is bothersome.

3 Oct

Read several reviews and didn’t see any addressing cabin noise from highway trips.

15 Jun

Previously owned 2 Honda CRV- RDX Is a pleasant, up graded Honda CRV, reliable, interior noise from road and wind, annoying as is mpg.

27 May

Makes a squeaking noise when driving at slower speeds in front brake area.

7 Apr

Road noise isn’t an issue.

18 Jan

The craftsmanship is lacking in a few areas such as seat quality/comfort, plastic parts, road noise, infotainment system performance and overall rattles/creeks.

8 Jun

In comparison, I was disappointed by how much road and wind noise the BMW let into the cabin at highway speeds.

31 Jul

Only issue is the poor navigation system which I don’t like.

22 Feb

but I think some of the technology could be much better (phone, navigation system).

7 Dec

I did not find the infotainment system hard to operate,

1 Dec

Couple that with lots of problems with the new informant system and I’m not sure I will be trading this for a new generation RDX.

3 Mar

My only complaint is the infotainment system.

18 Jan

17 Aug

Very unhappy with the NAV system.

6 Jun

Audio can be improved.

24 Jan

Trying to make a phone call using voice commands in traffic almost got me killed due to the fact that the system does not recognize simple English words.

22 Oct

The one other major issue is the phony chrome ring around the AC vent outlet next to the doors reflect directly into the outside mirrors how stupid is this Honestly it's a major distraction on a critical safety device.

12 Aug

Disappointed a/c NO SPARE TIRE!!!!!!!!!!!

2 May

but this one is even better. The LED lights are unreal and they fixed all the problems I did not like with the 2015 (no vents in rear, passenger seat that goes up and down, . )

23 Apr

This is because the vents contain a silver metal design and the sun shows the glare on the side view window.

6 Apr

The real comfort issue with this SUV is that the heater fan seems to put out about 1/3 of the volume of air as my Accord.

7 Jul

First time having cooling ventilating front seats which is a joy during the hot days.

22 Mar

Only complaints are the front seat and door panel leather - cheaper than my prior Acura's (have been buying them since 1986), and the gas mileage could be better since I do the majority of my driving around town.

6 May

The materials quality on the door panels could be better.

30 Dec

Drivers side mirror scratched, plastic engine cover under the hood was not secured- just left loose on the engine, 4 plastic clips are missing on under-the-hood panels.

31 Jul

Only issue is the poor navigation system which I don’t like.

19 Jul

Technology and controls still take a little to get used to - NAV control is not intuitive (yet) and voice commands are a work in progress.

22 Feb

but I think some of the technology could be much better (phone, navigation system).

3 Mar

I didn't get the Tech Package because I didn't like the navigation.

25 Aug

Navigation system is junk.

17 Aug

Very unhappy with the NAV system.

27 Nov

but GPS could be better.

22 Oct

The voice-activated Navigation and voice recognition for the phone is the absolute worst in the industry.

13 Oct

No service needed other than the navigation and tech voice interface are worst I've ever had and same as Honda which was very poor - still no updates to improve system.

5 Jun

Switch to sport or sport plus mode and it becomes a Manuel transmission with the paddle shifters.

20 May

You always find a "kick" with their Transmissions, how sad.

24 Sep

Transmission problems already.

14 Jul

The tranny shifts are not always the smoothest.

30 Jan

Only complaint is that, for a somewhat performance sedan, the transmission does not kick down as quickly as I would like

2 Nov

The shifting of the transmission from park to drive or reverse results in a 3-4 second delay before it engages.

20 Aug

Often when switching driving modes (Eco/Normal/Sport) while driving, it seems to "forget" how to switch gears smoothly and shifts like a non-expert (non-stick driver) like me would do it if made to drive a stick.

21 Aug

don't feel the car shifting at all!

12 Mar

The trans on TLX is a little jerky

24 Dec

Problems with the TLX: Transmission awful - jerky, no acceleration.

14 Jul

You feel a vibration in the steering wheel from the engine when driving at a steady speed.

2 Nov

There is a vibration that can be felt in the steering wheel and seats when you are driving at a constant speed and not accelerating.

16 Oct

Acura has had 4 years of vibration issues with the TLX SH AWD and they choose not to do anything about it.3 years later and Edmunds wanted an update.

22 Aug

The ATS has so much road noise from the tires, it was horrible to drive.

The road noise some don't like is not deafening or irritating.

I assume this is partly due to the fact that the automatic driver's seat preferences have it (and the steering wheel) moving and re-adjusting every time you get in the car.

though radio system.Little road noise.

18 Nov

Only a few negatives: Lots of wind noise when back windows are down more than about 1 inch.

31 Jan

My only complaint is that the voice system is sometimes difficult to deal with.

24 Jan

But the worst part is that the voice commands do not work.

29 Jun

Also, there are destination commands that the system won't accept (try to enter Indianapolis International Airport on Co. H. Weir Road-mine won't take it).

29 Jul

Biggest complaint is the voice regonition.

6 Jul

The not so great stuff - Transmission hunts a bit at low speeds on occasion, the nav system is a pain trying to use voice recognition to get a location.

23 Nov

Moreover, attempts to turn down the navigation system with the voice controls apparently cannot be done.

26 Jul

but I am very disappointed with the confusing set up of the bluetooth and voice commands as well as navigation.

23 Jun

Sometimes the on board Bluetooth phone will ring, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes you can hear the voice Nav directions, sometimes the voice fades to zero.

4 Jun

but the air vents are not layered out well and do not hold cell phones in almost any position.

22 Oct

The noise was gone when I drive it during my lunch break, maybe it's the temperature,

9 Jun

The car is new yet the a/c is poor.

26 Sep

Dangerously slow with significant lag time when using the controls and the tech package feels first generation including a low res backup cam circa 2002 compared to other cars from the same era.

4 May

Found that we prefer the conflicting traffic signal in the rear view mirror to the other honda variant with a tv screen and rear view camera.

30 Jul

No instrument lights, doors would not lock and the rear view camera display would not turn off.

31 Jul

Only issue is the poor navigation system which I don’t like.

7 Dec

I did not find the infotainment system hard to operate,

26 Sep

Overall, the tech package interface and performance is this car's biggest drawback making it difficult to do simple things like enertering a destination or taking conference calls while sitting in traffic.

24 Sep

Cons - wish it had wider tires (cosmetic thing), wish it had better infotainment system (very hard to use), wish it looked more upscale and less like a Honda CRV, wish it had higher towing capacity (probably can tow more that it is rated for).

18 Jan

The craftsmanship is lacking in a few areas such as seat quality/comfort, plastic parts, road noise, infotainment system performance and overall rattles/creeks.

11 Jul

Won’t display songs , speakers go in and out , navigation doesn’t work properly.

24 Jun

When I use google maps (GPS) on the Samsung phone, I need to turn off the cellphone bluetooth or play the GPS audio through the bluetooth input (without music).

Excellence concert hall audio system, comfortable seats, handles well and the transmission shifts much smoother than the 2013 FWD TL we traded for this.

23 Jul

After owning a 2009 and 2012 TL, I purchased a 2016 TLX SH-AWD Tech Package and so far I love driving it.

27 Jun

I was a former Acura TL owner and was blown away by the performance of the TLX.

14 Jul

You feel a vibration in the steering wheel from the engine when driving at a steady speed.

2 Feb

I complained of a noise coming from the rear of my car while my car was still under 100,000 miles

2 Nov

There is a vibration that can be felt in the steering wheel and seats when you are driving at a constant speed and not accelerating.

9 Dec

Road noise is a bit on the high side at 80mph.

29 Nov

Has some road/wind noise.

6 Nov

Big rush to get the car out the door to me and the vibration was overlooked by them.

7 Oct

Still feel vibration at 75 to 80 MPH speed, sent back again, mechanic checked it and felt the vibration, The mechanic also tested driving the dealer's loaner car (same model), he felt this loaner car vibration too.

10 Aug

inside, while driving, you hear this noise too.

23 Jul

Pros: Very nice interior, low road noise and good acceleration with 1-2 passengers.

14 Jul

The 6 lost due to aggressive head restraints, a bit more road noise, and it didn't have much top end power.

2 Feb

$800.00 and this could have been paid for under warranty if they checked the car throughly when I first complained of the noise to them.

27 Jul

Haven’t had the car long and glad I got a 100,000 warranty after reading about all the issues.

29 May

I am hoping to bring this to Acura for a warranty claim, TBD for now…but no question they have an issue.

9 Dec

No way I would want an Audi, BMW x-drive or Mercedes 4Matic beyond the factory warranty and to get AWD in the Lexus you have to move up to the GS and seems a bit too much like grandmas car.

27 Jan

Maintenance is also cheap thus should buy rather than lease, compared to BMW or Mercedes which basically forces you to lease or sell the car once maintenance warranty runs out.

My 2001 Acura 3.2 TL is more reliable and has a better ride.

11 Jan

First was a 05 TL which had a great engine

22 Aug

Soon after i purchased it started making ticking noise from the back seat.

30 Jul

Very poor Quality, rattles ,creeks, no power, Drivers manual missleading

4 Jun

Luckily the stereo is very good, so, if the kids aren't with me, I just crank up the volume to try to overcome the suspension and resulting body noise.

9 Mar

Operating features are hard to locate, no leg room in front seat for tall person,quality is shabby,rattles etc

15 Feb

The road noise could be less, like most Acura products,

25 Sep

A week after that inspection, while driving at low speed on my suburban neighborhood street the front suspension started to make rather loud thunks and creaks as if something was loose or a tire was about to break off.

18 Dec

Do watch out for the engine noise issue though.

26 Mar

The engine sound likes kind of electric noise, so I google it; then, I see some people complaining about cricket like noise.

11 Feb

The rattle is not only VERY audible and annoying,

23 Oct

Hear thud and clunking and makes you cringe with every bump.

28 Jul

Clunky every time you hit a bump.

20 Apr

Noticed a clunking sound from rear suspension right away, mainly only at slow speeds on rough pavement,

2 Mar

However there is one overriding negative which is that this car does not handle even modest bumps very well.

23 Oct

Driving on rough roads difficult to carry on conversation with person in the middle seat.

30 Oct

but bottom line is phone call doesn't work, blue tooth doesn't work.

6 Nov

Acura's MDX tech package is great, my only complaint is that they text message reading systems only works on older versions of the iPhone.

23 Sep

Honestly, a smart phone with a GPS app is far better.

Biggest disappointment is nav-still use my phone, yet paid big bucks for what I thought would be luxurious, it is cumbersome & unuseful- never never use, sad technology.

23 Oct

Navigation is extremely poor - use your phone.

25 Jul

Navigation is extremely poor - use your phone.

8 Dec

I find using my i-phone more than car's features, because it takes so much time to enter or find any Point of interest from Acura database which is extremely poor or algorithms for searching are poorly designed.

14 Jun

The Bluetooth phone is horrible.

16 Nov

I just got a "recall" notice in the mail I have been waiting for and it is just for the radio, nav and phone, not to address the other computer problem.

20 Mar

Only downside is the system that controls everything.

29 Feb

The negatives would be the actual amount of space for cargo (would like more) and the Acura/Honda info system is weird and not easy to use at all.

4 Jun

Luckily the stereo is very good, so, if the kids aren't with me, I just crank up the volume to try to overcome the suspension and resulting body noise.

The premium ELS Audio (as Acura calls it), is also, sadly, a joke.

27 Jun

and don't dare try to change audio or climate control while you are driving, its is so complicated as to be genuinely dangerous.

26 Aug

Also stupid is that the NAV system locks (most features) while driving.

Acura and Hondas are known for their reliability, and my TL did not disappoint.

7 Sep

Traded a 2010 TL to 2015 TLX, both great cars smooth and quiet, v6 was a must have

19 Mar

In terms of space, it is equal to the TL.

11 Nov

The size is comfortable, the transmission is much much smoother than the 2012 TL I owned, and the interior quality rivals any other Japanese luxury standard.

3 Oct

The car does not have as much get up and go at the 2010 TL and the audio system is still sub par.

6 Jun

after other Acuras including a TL ,I think this a very good solution to a smaller ,better gas mileage,and affordable car.If performance is what you want I don't think this isthe car

Switch to sport or sport plus mode and it becomes a Manuel transmission with the paddle shifters.

20 May

You always find a "kick" with their Transmissions, how sad.

24 Sep

Transmission problems already.

14 Jul

The tranny shifts are not always the smoothest.

13 Feb

This year and model had some serious transmission and electrical system issues.

30 Jan

Bad transmission and no support at all from the dealership.

2 Nov

The shifting of the transmission from park to drive or reverse results in a 3-4 second delay before it engages.

8 Sep

Here are the reasons: -The transmission (9-speed ZF) is bad.

20 Aug

Often when switching driving modes (Eco/Normal/Sport) while driving, it seems to "forget" how to switch gears smoothly and shifts like a non-expert (non-stick driver) like me would do it if made to drive a stick.

27 Mar

At 30k miles in and after multiple transmission software updates, I had to completely replace the transmission.

never cold); there are already some knocking noises from here and there, which is not typical for the Acura of old at this mileage; the rear of the car is buzzing from the subwoofer at anything than low music volume.

23 Aug

I have had a few interior issues in fit and finish that are disappointing and a front passenger seat that shakes, rattles from the time the car was brand new.

15 May

The transmission is junk and theengine is too noisy for a luxurycar

14 May

Hopefully Acura corrected this annoying vibration in the 2016 and later models.

6 May

After owning it for three years and 36k miles, I'm trading it in, and here's why: 1. Vibrations!!!!

23 Aug

Dashboard has a visible space where the GPS screen sits because the trim does not fit properly, this is unbelievable for an Acura as this is a design failure and this should never have gotten out of the assembly area.

Evidently, the car's computer system went down when the battery failed and I'm still having issues with various tech features.

The car also has an intermittent and very annoying rattle in the back deck lid that the dealer has failed multiple times to identify, pursue, or remedy.

25 Sep

but not extravagant in cost ~good MPG, and good reliability, to keep the cost-per-mile on my long commute low ~modern tech, advanced features Having owned it a year, I'd say it succeeded on the first two points, and failed on the 3rd.

27 Mar

The navigation system is so convoluted that you can’t adjust your air conditioning or radio until it’s fully booted and the seals on my back doors have been replaced multiple times.

Factory GPS sometimes gives poor directions and Sirius radio is too expensive.

4 Apr

It's hard to figure out how to scroll through radio stations without getting the manual out.

31 Jan

Also if the car is off you cant listen to the radio.

9 May

That makes sense, given that most drivers will use Auto or Carplay most if not all of the time. But it's worth noting for those Acura fans who got used to the Zagat ratings or the full suite of voice commands of earlier models ("Temperature Max Cold!")

8 Sep

Transmission replaced, propeller shaft rotated, engine mounts replaced, fuel pump replaced, pulley ships installed, door seals replaced, fuel pump recall, broken seat plastic fixed and vent fan fixed.

The climate control system when set to auto seems to set the fan speed on the higher settings which are extremely noisy and doesn't seem to hold temperature very well.

25 Sep

My complaints are mostly with the tech: ~dual screens are confusing, and it's frustrating having to push several touch-screen options in a row to do things as simple as adjust the A/C fan speed.
