Thankfully, Honda is one of the few automakers left that still provide a manual transmission option throughout its entire lineup. The 2010 Acura TL is the latest to be outfitted with a six-speed manual transmission. The manual transmission has been specifically designed for the TL's engine and All-Wheel drive combination. This has left Acura as the third automaker to offer a manual transmission, all-wheel drive combo in its segment.
The TL's six-speed gearbox is the sort that we've come to expect from Honda and it provides the drive a smooth and precise ride with short, sporty throws. Along with the newly fitted electric power steering system, the front suspension is returned to improve steering feel as well as ride quality. Acura has surely outdone itself with the TL manual transmission.
