Is Acura admitting that they have issues with torque steer in the TL and have addressed them? Interesting because there was a lot of debate about it when the TL first came out.

You better get used to that, You cant put a 270 horse engine in a car and send the power to the front wheels and not expect torque steer. Untill Acura uses rear wheel drive you will just have to compensate for the torque steer. BUT im pretty sure Acura knows the torque steer issue, and there's pretty much nothing they can do about it except abopt all-wheel drive or rear wheel drive.

I think the whole torque steer debate thing is a little overblown. I find it fun to hold on for dear life while the jet takes off, makes it more engaging and you actually connect with the mechanics of what's going on. Sort of like holding on to your motorcycle handles at full throttle. Sure RWD would be nice, but so would be a car as nice as the TL.

Car and Driver does sometime have there heads up there behind. The TL with the 6 speed has a diff pull, not torque steer. They just get too lazy to explain the difference. The AT TL has no torque steer. You can floor it from a dead stop and the car goes straight. If you don't know what a diff pull is, you can go drive any high perforamnce rear drive car, floor it from a dead stop and watch the back end twitch and walk back and forth. that is the limited slip moving the power back and forth to each drive tire.
