We reviewed this year for the TL and so far I'm delighted. It's beautiful and rides like a dream, although it does have some road noise, but the stereo is awesome. I'm confident it will be an excellent car for us. We looked at the 1999-2003 TL's and the transmission problems scared us off. We have a 2002 RL, and although the TL is not as luxurious as that, it is just as fun to drive and it has all the same toys, just a little smaller, and I LOVE this car! The metallic blue paint is just beautiful also, and this car is in perfect shape.
I agree the parking brake and some of the buttons could be in a better spot.
