yes it can Nick...the reliability on a TL is great plus the exterior and interior are much better then the Camry ..if your not on a budget swoop up a TL

I found a lot of humor in so many of these comments. I have a 1995 Honda Accord EX (V6, leather), and the 2007 TL is just like it. I could barely tell that I was driving a different car, except for the navigation screen! I first considered the TL because I still love driving my Honda (190k miles), and a friend who works at the dealership said I would have to move into the Acura line to get the same quality as my 1995 Accord. I subsequently heard the TL was called the European Accord or something.
But the Camry Hybrid caught my attention. Both cars provided what I needed (reliability) and some of what I wanted (navigation, heated seats, etc.) within the same purchase price range that I thought appropriate. But by my estimates I would save about $8000 over 6 years going with the Camry Hybrid due to reduced fuel costs, the tax credit, and the slightly lower purchase price (MSRP for the Camry).
Acura vs. Toyota isn't an issue for me. But I prefer the drive, power, looks, and navigation goodies of the TL. Is it worth $8000 to me? I haven't made up my mind. But I really understand why the cars are being compared by certain types of buyers.

I bought a new 06 Accord EX V6 NAV in may 06. In aug 06 I traded it in on a new 06 TL. BIG DIFFERENCE in EVERY way!!!! No comparison. Unless you drive like a grandpa! I just Traded the 06 TL in on a 07 TL Type S. A HUGH difference from the 06 TL!!! But I drive very aggressive!!! Jeff from Northern IL.

So the 170hp Accord w/ 165lbs of torque felt the same to you as a 258hp TL w/233 lbs of torque?
IMHO the interior between the 1995 accord and TL are vastly different.
The TSX is the European Accord not the TL.

He said V6 Accord which I think sports 240 hp which is pretty much inline with the TL'S 258 HP.

I bought a new 06 Honda Accord EX V6 NAV Auto. I traded it in on an 06 TL. Even though they say 18 h.p. diff. It feels much more powerful!!! I now own a 2007 TL Type S which blows away my 06 TL. I have bought 3 new cars since May 06. I am finally where I will stay for at least 3 years.

Nope. For the 95 MY Accord V6 it sported a 2.7liter, 170hp engine.
