1998 Acura TL 2.5 4dr Sedan


Handling is precise and predictable, a sure mark of quality craftsmanship. Not like BMW, but has tight riding - you can feel the contour of road surface in a well tamed manner. Surprizingly reliable driving and traction in various inclement weather conditions - A+. If you make sure that air filter, spark plugs, and engine oil are clean, then you will be surprised with its mileage. Mine has 115,000 miles on it, and drives about 27 miles per gallon faithfully on highway with some inner city driving combined. Today it recorded 27.4miles/gallon on my trip to Richmond. Not too bad at all for such a heavy machine! Definitely a nice bang for the bucks.

Best Features

Nice indoor trim. Very gentle & handsome hind look. Refer to my review for other likable characters.

Worst Features

D4 lamp never survives more than 100,000 miles. Exhaust-manifold cracked. $1000 to fix (not covered by factory recall wty for 1998 model). If it had more kick on acceleration. Seats may be tiring for long distance.
