A Very Mixed Bag

Vehicle1996 Acura TL 2.5 Premium 4dr Sedan
ReviewThis car is in one word interesting. The materials and design on the inside and out are of top quality, but the engine is another story. The inline 2.5 Litre inline 5 cylinder is the outcast of Acura engines. While it loves to rev high and sound very buzzy, it doesn't move you as fast as you would expect it too. With some very agressive driving in my automatic 2.5, I've been able to squeeze out a 0- 60 time of 7.4 seconds. Not too bad in my book, especially since it's a 5 banger pulling around 170 horses. Not a fast car, but one that will move you around in style and almost guranteed to fire up every morning.
Best FeaturesThe interior, the exterior design, handling is excellent and responsive (almost go-kart like), decent room for tall drivers in the front seat - as long as the seat is all the way down and back...
Worst FeaturesThe radio controls, leaky trunk, and the engine. More horsepower and torque would have been great (almost impossible to spin the tires on dry asphalt). Low gas mileage numbers for an engine of this size.
