1997 Acura TL 2.5 Premium 4dr Sedan

Review

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 anyone.

Favorite Features

Stereo sounds good. Moonroof hasn't broken yet.

Suggested Improvements

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.
