1996 Acura TL 2.5 Premium 4dr Sedan

Review

Got this car with 135k on it for $4k and had no real problems till just recently. Ball joint on psgr. side is squeaking, and steering rack leaks p/s fluid (leakstop stopped it tho). No really BIG issues though! Wish I found a 3.2 (drove my friends one, BIG difference!), but the 2.5 is ok. Acceleration is a bit sluggish, but it is over 3k lbs. Proper maintenance keeps this bad boy running smooth. Just replaced the console with the 3.2 premium wood console. Made a world of a difference in the cockpit!

Favorite Features

Exterior styling (shouldn't have changed it), tight turning radius, and the smooth ride. The cockpit is set up pretty nice too (just need more illumination to see what you're trying to adjust).

Suggested Improvements

Make it quiet! Road noise is bad for a "luxury" car. Smoother shifting tranny would be nice too. Cheaper parts would be nicer. At least drop the price to 3.2 prices. Why is the 2.5 more expensive? A tilting sunroof would've been nice too.
