I'm a new TL owner. How do you switch to Driver 1. For whatever reason when I start the car it says welcome driver 2?

You must be using the wrong key, which is coded as "driver 2". Switch keys and hit the unlock button - it should then welcome "driver 1".

I wasn't aware that the keys were numbered, opened the car door and it said on the panel Wecome Driver 1.

there is and I have one, This is my third tl and I should have quit after 2. This car is very ordinary and honestly, its uncomfortble to drive, especially on a long trip. I have a 2006 Pathfinder and I will choose to take it on a trip over the tl anytime, even with the lousy gas mileage.
Acura needs to step it up if they want to compete at this level. This car is overpriced and it underperforms.
#72 of 97 poor gas mileage

I have a 2008 TL. I rarely drive on the freeway, so virtually 100% of my driving is "city". According to the manual, I am supposed to get 18 mpg city. I started out at around 16, and have been steadily declining. I got 12.7 mpg on my last tank. I can't figure it out, as I use the premium gas, and I don't accelerate particularly fast or drive overly fast.

I've noticed my mileage drop considerably since the weather turned hot. My worst tanks are the ones with mostly stop and go traffic and my A/C is cycling continuously. I've read A/C is pretty much a wash vs. open windows (increased drag) mileage wise, but I think that only applies to highway traffic, not city.

Is everyone's gas gauge ridiculous or what? My low warning light came on and the tank only took in about 12.5 gallons of gas. Doesn't that leave about 5-6 gallons in the tank? Does everyone have this issue?
I guess it's really not a issue, I guess it's better than if it only left a gallon of gas when the light came on.
Excellent car though! After seeing the supposed pics of the 2009 TL, I'm glad I got the 2008. Comfortable, Roomy, and getting good gas mileage so far at about 23MPG in mostly stop & go driving.

anyone have insight on how to setup the bluetooth with a Verizon phone? The dealer couldn't get it to sync up and neither can I.

Yeah, the low fuel warning light is conservative on my '05, too. Better than coming on too late though! I don't mind it. I too, have pretty consistently averaged 23 mpg (per the OBC) since I bought 3.5 years ago.
The heavy, attack doors of death and the trunk lid that dumps water into the trunk (maybe it's Zaino's fault for leaving such lovely beads of water there!) are a couple of minor annoyances I note on my TL. But it does everything so well, including being eye-candy, that all is forgiven!

I bought an '08 TL that was manufactured in Feb 2008. Typically when the low fuel light comes on, I can put between 15 to 16 gallons in the tank (the tank is 17.1 gallons.
I drive 90% highway and avg 30mpg, all higway I can get 32 - 34 mpg depending on my speed typically between 60 and 70mph.
