My 12 year old Acura TL type S is finally starting nickle and dime me. So I'm on the prowl for a new car. I'm checking out certified Acurasfirst. The '09-'11 TL's with that front shiny slab just don't do it for me. Actually I think its ass ugly. The only TL I like is the '12 and certified units are too expensive for me. The RL's however don't have that goofy nose. My question is, is there any year I should avoid even if it is certified? The '09 RL was the first model after the redesign so if I were to guess that one would have problems. What about the 10's and 11's? I deifnately want AWD. I'm also checking out BMW 3 series, a few 5 series and the Mercedes E350.
