1996 Acura TL 2.5 Premium 4dr Sedan

Review

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. Great car!

Favorite Features

Auto climate control Nice seating. 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 interior materials. Heated mirrors.

Suggested Improvements

They could have used better materials on the door handles on the inside. It looks like a chrome foil was wrapped around them. Needs a rear spoiler and bigger rims (stock is 15") and better tint on glass.
