The Acura TLX didn't have what it takes to play in the big leagues. While it is a good overall performer, this version of the mid-sized Acura lacks the engaging performance and panache found in other upscale sedans. Measured against its European and Japanese rivals, the TLX's handling falls short and its ride isn't as comfortable.

What Owners Say

"280 hp is fun to have under the hood but it takes time to engage engine (processing time is too long, even I'm driving in Sport mode). When car is parked the "rocking' back-and-force on uneven surfaces is unpleasant to have."

ANDREY P., IL (2015 Acura TLX)

"Transmission functionality. It hesitates to engage"

"I have been extremely impressed with the power and handling of my TLX!"

ELLIS S., TX (2015 Acura TLX)

"All wheel drive improves handling in winter or sloppy weather"

MICHAEL M., AB (2015 Acura TLX)

"Sporty, fast with good handling. I don't like the pause in acceleration when I step on the gas pretty hard while driving."

Anonymous, WI (2015 Acura TLX)

"The 9 speed auto transmission does not shift as smoothly as I would expect. My old 2007 TL-X had better acceleration."

Anonymous, MO (2015 Acura TLX)

"Steering wheel occasionally did not unlock after being parked, even when engaged in Drive or Reverse. Dealer tried two times to repair, and ultimately replaced the total power steering control unit.- covered by warranty."

Anonymous, NC (2015 Acura TLX)

"I love the lane keep assit and adaptive cruise control. Once one becomes familiar with operation and limitations, I fond them a great contribution to safety and ease of driving on the interstate."

ROBERT L., NJ (2015 Acura TLX)

"excellent acceleration and handling........."

Anonymous, ON (2015 Acura TLX)

"Handling and acceleration (V6) is outstanding. Fun to drive. The in dash navigation/audio is slow to respond and hard to use. It also shuts off the instant you turn the engine off instead of staying on for a brief period of time in case you want to listen to the radio etc. in driveway. It takes over 30 seconds to turn back on."

HAZEN M., MI (2015 Acura TLX)

"First couple of gears are very clunky, and there is occasionally delays in response. We have gotten two software updates in an attempt to fix the issue. There are still some problems since the updates."

LISA B., OH (2015 Acura TLX)

"The TLX 2.4 w/8 Speed DCT was very speedy and AWS is amazing in keeping the vehicle stable during hi speed maneauver. And, zero problem for the entire 25K miles of owenership !"

KUEN L., CA (2015 Acura TLX)

"The CVST transmission jerks through gears from a stop. Took to dealer many times and even talked with regional Acura service people and they did not give me the time of day. Very disappointed!"

JIM M., IN (2015 Acura TLX)

"Lousy transmission. Very rough shifting. Drove a rental Nissan Altima. Puts the transmission on the Acura to shame. I'll keep the Acura until I get close to warranty expiration and unload it. No confidence in the transmission."

"As mentioned by CR, the transmission is very unresponsive! It pretty much ruins the whole car."

JAY B., CA (2015 Acura TLX)

"Dual clutch transmission sometimes jerks, and even worse, leaves you somewhat powerless while it is trying to figure out what gear it should be in. This is very dangerous when trying to merge into traffic."

"Auto hOlds the road like it's on rails. Braking is excellent"

RICKY M., MI (2015 Acura TLX)

"It has all the acceleration that I can practically require having. It moves out on the rare occasions when that seems necessary. The handling is crisp and thoroughly satisfactory. I haven't really put the AWD to a full test, but I've found the handling very good on the occasional twisting hill road. In years past I have owned a Porsche, an Audi, and a couple of earlier "sports" sedans. Although I was happy with my 2004 and 2007 Acura TLs I experience the TLX as quiet and more comfortable on"

"acceleration is a bit choppy, assume it's because of the 9 speed transmission. my Honda accord has smoother acceleration."

Anonymous, MA (2015 Acura TLX)

"Because of the dual-clutch transmission it can be challenging to drive smoothly in traffic. It also doesn't always respond consistently/smoothly leaving stoplights and such."

MICHAEL M., WA (2015 Acura TLX)

"Transmission on the V-6 is terrible, lugs in gears. The push-pull gear selector in console is terrible to operate, awkward, have to look down to operate, not intuitive. The transmission and gear selector need to be redesigned and replaced. The V-6 engine does not perform smoothly (bucks when cold, lugs at low speeds) and does not perform well for its horsepower rating."

VINCENT R., MN (2015 Acura TLX)

"Transmission is a piece of garbage. Problems from the beginning. Dealer never able to fix it properly. Acura denied that there were problems inspite of multiple complaints by people that own this car. Not only rough shifting but lack of response in critical situations.

M S., WI (2015 Acura TLX)

"I rarely depress the gas pedal more than slightly to move out and keep up in traffic, but when I need sharp acceleration it responds briskly. The ride is comfortable and at low throttle settings (the norm) the cabin is quiet. The driving and handling dynamics are very satisfying. I have had no problems with the occasional snow conditions I've encountered. While some models of current Audi's , BMW's (my occasional driving experience with earlier BMSs fell far short of their hype), and other top price tier cars may test better when rung out hard in a track setting, in the real world there is really no place to apply such performance. I've got all I could possible use in the TLX."

"It had a lot better content for the money than the other cars I shopped."

Jeffrey T., MO (2015 Acura TLX)

"Excellent value for the money. Best car I've ever driven. Very happy with my purchase. I do wish the radio volume control had 3 steps to every one it now has. If I want to increase the volume, only one click is to much of an increase for me. I like quiet sounds, not a real loud system."

Anonymous, WA (2015 Acura TLX)

"Good value for the money. Used in daily commute and in three years have had NO repairs or other reliability issues.Acceleration with the 4 cylinder engine is quite satisfactory with 38 mpg highway."

Anonymous, NC (2015 Acura TLX)

"My TLX is a v6 Advance model with all available optional equipment. It was seven to ten thousand dollars less than its comparable European competition such as the BMW 330, Audi A4 and MB C 300."

Robert S., NJ (2015 Acura TLX)

"The TLX provided an excellent AWD system and all the electronic safety systems I wanted, along with ample power and comfort. In the spring of 2015 there were no other similarly equipped and featured vehicles on the market for less than several thousand dollars more. A fully equipped 6-cylinder Subaru Legacy would have been a cheaper alternative, but none were available or even promised for several months into the future in the general central Atlantic region where I live. Despite Consumer Reports dismissal of this vehicle I have found it overall the best car I have ever owned, including in the past an Audi, Porsche, Rover 2000TC, Chevrolets, VWs. The car is used on occasional highway trips, where the average gas mileage increases to about 35 MPG."

Peter Y., VA (2015 Acura TLX)

"It included options that other cars such as Lexus charged for."

Anonymous, MD (2015 Acura TLX)

"To me there are no significant shortcomings with the car and the price at the time of purchase was highly competitive."

What Owners Say

"The cup holder holes are ugly & need covers!"

Anonymous, NV (2015 Acura TLX)

"I added on optional front, rear, and side airodynamic panels at time of purchase to improve "sporty" look of the car. It has been a true eye catcher. Car quickly accelerates, even to limiter of 137.5 mph."

JERRY Z., OH (2015 Acura TLX)

G S., PA (2015 Acura TLX)

ARTHUR K., TX (2015 Acura TLX)

MARY F., CA (2015 Acura TLX)

PHILLIP B., OH (2015 Acura TLX)

"the car looks nice but for somebody who has had an Acura for many years it is getting "old""

HOWARD W., NY (2015 Acura TLX)

"the overall body style with the LED lights, but the beak nose is still there. The back LED lights are also stylish, but only at night when they are on."

TAM C., TX (2015 Acura TLX)
