2006 Acura TL from North America
Car needs more refinement and better build quality
The quality of the ride is rough; should be smooth with a "luxury" vehicle.
Quality of build should be better.
Quality of paint; i.e.: "Orange Peel" appearance
Doors swing back and could cause injury to your leg or ankle.
Engine is loud.
Car feels "heavy"
Steering is a bit tight.
Quality of leather is substandard.
Quality of interior finish needs improvement.
Passenger front seat "squeaks" when someone is sitting in it.
Overall, the car drives and handles great; very comfortable seats.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Engine not as refined as your 626?
Since his major complaints would have been self evident on a five minute test drive, I question why he bought the vehicle to begin with.
To respond to your question, The Acura TL is a great car, no doubt. I love the way it drives, the handling is great and very responsive however, the suspension is pretty rough; especially when you drive over bumps--you expect a smoother, more-refined driving experience with a "luxury" vehicle. I read that Acura has "improved" the suspension for 2007.
