Acura TL: Ratings & Reviews
With aggressive exterior styling, elegant interior design, an ambitious engine, and a wide variety of features, you can’t go wrong with the TL. It also carries Acura’s brand name penchant for being a reliable car.

The IIHS has rated the 2011 TL, and so far it has been doing well. It’s been given the top rating of good for front, rear, and side impact tests. However, the IIHS hasn’t tested the 2011 TL for roof strength tests yet.
