Used Acura TLs
In 1996, Honda launched the first generation Acura TL which combined performance and reliability in a mid-size luxury sedan. The 4-door Acura TL is ideal for families seeking all the comforts of a luxury car with the added benefit of long-term reliability and value retention. The TL, which stands for "Touring Luxury," was Acura's first vehicle to cease using the traditional model names for vehicles and instead used alpha-numeric notation. The numbers you see after the Acura TL name correlate with the engine size. For example, the first generation vehicles were offered in a sporty 2.5L and a more robust 3.2L.
Safety has always been a strong suit for the Acura TL. The second generation vehicles that hit the market beginning with model year 1998 included side impact airbags for the front passengers as standard features. Add in the enhanced navigation system and four-speed electronic automatic transmission with SportShift and you've got a vehicle that's not only safe to drive but also a pleasure on long road trips.
Ask any previous owner what distinguishes used Acura TLs for sale from other similar vehicles and they'll likely point to cutting-edge technology. The third generation, which launched with model year 2004, supports this claim as it became the first car available in America with a 6-disc CD changer and Bluetooth technology for hands free cell phone usage standard across all models. It's no wonder that by 2005 the TL ranked third in sales among luxury vehicles trailing only the BMW 3 and Lexus ES.
The fourth and final generation of Acura TL vehicles, which began with model year 2009, is undoubtedly the safest version of this vehicle having received top safety ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) across all major categories. To help maintain traction in slippery conditions, you can get this generation of TL with optional all-wheel drive. Of course, the latest TL's continue the legacy of including pioneering technology by including USB charging ports, keyless start, and a 13GB internal hard drive among other comforting amenities. Despite its nearly 20-year run of success, the 2014 Acura TL is the end of its kind as the TLX replaced it starting in 2015.
