These changes to the Acura line up is indeed smart. Just over the weekend I was thinking that a TMS should be added to the standard list of TL features and they did. I really don't understand the new SAE HP rating system. You say that HP remains the same but it is reported as less -- HuH? I also like the fact that Acura engineers has answered the torque steer issue by applying a real solution. I mean if Car and Driver says that the TL has torque steer, it has torque steer. Period! Nonetheless, I like the fact that Acura is listenting to what owners and drivers of its products on this and other sites are saying. Way to go Acura!

i believe the TMS is required under law. i think the new audio input on the tsx is a great example that really goes to show ahm is listening.

But the addition of memory settings for the drivers seat is a good example!

::rolleyes:: If C&D told you to jump off a bridge, would you do it?

Go drive a TL. Then go drive a Maxima. No torque steer, torque steer, respectively.

Acura has admitted to the torque steer problem in the TL by committing to fix it. This shows resolution by Acura to truly make the TL a driver's vehicle, which I think is great. The TL will be much better for 06 because of these minor tweaks. I guess I'll just have to wait and see what C & D says about them later this year.

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.
