I bought this for $13000 ($10000US)
after selling my '90 4Runner for gas
reasons. This car is good on gas for
its size (about 10L/100km or 24mpg in
city driving and 6.3L/100km or about
30mpg on the highway). It is very
comfortable with its nice leather
bucket seats (although the leather isnt
as high class as in the newer cars, or
even as in the older lexus cars, but
its good). The engine is very
responsive and refined even at high
RPM, but the transmission tends to
shift at weird times. I haven't had any
problems at 160000km(100000mi) other
than c/v boots needing replacement.
Auto climate control
EXCELLENT stock sound system. 8
speakers and sounds very crisp and loud
with good bass.
EXCELLENT reliability. No powertrain
trouble or major repairs needed.
Good fit and finish on the paint and
They could have used better materials
on the door handles on the inside. It
looks like a chrome foil was wrapped
Needs a rear spoiler and bigger rims
(stock is 15") and better tint on glass.
If I could buy this car brand new, I
would! I have driven and experienced
just about any other car out there- and
I'm always happier and more comfortable
in my Acura. The car is classy, sporty,
and reliable. Mine has 125K miles and
running amazingly. I have driven about
60 miles a day to college for the past 4
years and my car has never let me down.
Now I can afford any other car but
seriously don't want to give it up!
Interior, Exterior. Sunroof is great!
If I COULD improve anything, it would be
the speakers of the radio. But then
again, it's just because I'm young and
like loud music.
I bought this car with 71,000 miles.
It now has 87,000. this car has been
good to me so far. The only problem
I've had thus far is a ball joint is
starting to fail and cause a loud
squeeking noise from under the
driver's side fender. I replaced the
stock wheels with the '02 3.2 TL Type
S wheels and the car looks almost
brand new, despite the fact that it's
8 years old. This car always turns
heads. I love it!
Head turning style, comfort, headed
More horsepower, Standard
transmission, upgraded AC
