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.
