My truck is totaled.

Just got word in from insurance and my 2007 avalanche is totaled. I was thinking about getting a cheap van for work like a 2004 Chevy astro and maybe buying a 07 Tl type s for luxury. How's the Tl type s compares to our accords. I'm going to get an auto, that's final. What other cars compete with the Tl that I should look at as well?

Re: My truck is totaled.

Yes I know that, do they really compete with Lexus, BMW, Audi, and Benz? I never thought that acura really did.

Re: My truck is totaled.

They do now, more so when 2009 came when they had something other than FWD. But a 3G TL is still a huge step up from a 6GA. Other car to look at may be an Infiniti G35.

Pretty much supposed to be on the same playing field.

BTW i dont think you will be able to get a TL-S in auto buddy, my RSX-S is straight 6-speed manual, Id imagine the TL-S could be too, might be wrong though

Re: My truck is totaled.

What other cars compete with it. I'm looking for a sexy sedan that I can have some fun with. Also they should have good gas mileage, that's why I'm not even going to look at the g35.

07/08 TL-S were released in both auto and 6MT's, and it's much easier to find autos.

That is a good deal.

I don't think G's get bad mileage. But an IS300 might be a consideration, think it will be more $$ than the TL though.
