    About time they change it. When I was in the Acura dealer the other day the 3.5RL they had there for 53k looked like it was a '95 or some shit. Talk about old design. The new one looks good.

    Where is it built?

    I drove a few new TLs and all of them had at least one or two build quality problems.

    If the price is still going to be near $50k, let's hope the tradition continues.

    Some real metal and wood trim inside would be nice too.
