As the former owner of an 07 EX-L V6 Navi 5AT sedan, it was nothing to write home about. Honestly, my old 14 Accord Sport CVT was a more enjoyable experience.

Yep, mpg is in the wheelhouse of the ZF9. Going from my old 14 Accord Sport CVT to my 16 3.5 PAWS (and later my 19 3.5 PAWS) hasn’t resulted in any hit to my fuel economy experiences.

The 07-08 TL-S was only 28hp more than the regular TL yet, Acura fans held it in as much regard as 3 series fans do the M3. Heck, the 04-06 TL 6MT pretty much matched the performance of the 07-08...
