This car has a excellent ride quality and handling performance. The engine provides smooth acceleration with good fuel economy. All of the driver controls are very well designed and durable. This is a very comfortable and reliable car. It is an excellent value.
I bought my Acura used with 40,000
miles. It now has 140,000 miles on it,
Driven rough the whole time. Only had
two mechanical problems with it.
Driver side actuator and starter went
out. Total of $400.00 in Repairs, for
a seven year old car not bad at all.
Front Headlights w/foglights on.
Leather interior. Fast for a four door
Well, to begin, I've had this car for
a little over a week, so I cann't
really say the long-term status of my
car, but for now I'm enjoying it.
This is my first car, and it's
compitant overall. The interior and
exterior design is all fine and dandy,
but lacks soul and excitement. The CD
system is amazing, and the 5-cylinder
really revs fast, but since the car is
fairly large the 176 hp don't move the
TL very fast. Everybody only has good
comments on the car, and for the most
part I agree, although alil spice
overall wouldn't hurt.
The engine is fun, but the audio
system really is the best part of this
car. It's probably the finest I've
Alil more omph in the power
department, alil more "different" in
the styling department... it's a fine
car, but it's lacking alot of
Picked this up in a hurry when my BMW
died. As others have said, I'm sure I
can drive this car for 10 more years
with minimal maintenance...the
question is whether I would WANT to.
From the outside, it looks like a
Honda Accord with an Acura badge
slapped on it. (The Honda stamps on
the glass don't help.) The controls
(wiper, cruise, even horn) are
identical to the Accord my family
drove in 1978. No evolution. None.
Even worse is the engine. This thing
can only break 10s 0-60 if I manually
shift, and it's a yawner for passing
Stereo sounds good. Moonroof hasn't
Just a dull car. I wish every day I
were still driving a BMW. Note btw
that the 1999 TL is a complete ripoff
of Bimmers -- tail lights, curve on
the rear window molding, etc etc etc.
