6-Speed Front Drive: 2005 Acura TL

Honda might not have produced the world’s first front-wheel-drive car (that is arguably the 1989 Victoria Combination by Société Parisienne) or even the most successful front-wheel-drive seller (that’d be the Toyota Camry) or the fastest front-wheel-drive racecar (that’d be the Nissan GT-R LM Nismo) but they did build the best front drive sport compact sedans of the 1990s starting with the surprisingly fast Honda Predule, followed by the Acura Integra, then the RSX, and finally what you see here…which is a 6-speed manual equipped Acura TL. Find this 2005 Acura TL offered for $5,490 in Winnetka, CA via craigslist.
