I am a sports car person. I have had
English sports cars, GM muscle cars,
Nissan Z's, Supra's, etc. This is the
best of the bunch for all around
driving. The handling isn't as good as
a rwd car, but I expected that. The
pure power and comfort are astounding,
both to me (57 year old male) and my son
(22). You can drive this for 300+ miles
straight and climb out without any
fatigue. I have heard about
transmission problems with early
production versions (primarily 2001),
but I have had no problems, of any kind,
with any part of this car. It is a
shame the model was discontinued, I
would buy another. The new TL is on my
short list at new car time.
The motor is unbelievable, silent at low
speed and rocket propulsion, with no
turbo lag, when you put your foot in it.
The interior is extremely attractive
and comfortable. The rear seat is even
usable for short people.
