1999 Acura TL Sedan 3.2 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought the car in 2005 with 32,000 miles on it. I love the car but now it has about 72,000 miles and has been in the shop for the EGR. Other than that it's been a perfect inexpensive car.


Best Features

Leather seats, seat heaters, and dimming mirror.


Worst Features

Better leather on the middle console.

Review

I feel the transmission should have been recalled. The manufacturer is more than aware that the transmission in this car was poorly made, and I am quite upset that I am having to replace it. I have always driven a Honda or Acura and this is the first time I've had major problems. I am told that the issue has been resolved mechanically, but that does little to help my out of pocket fee.


Best Features

Moon Roof, Navigation


Worst Features

The Transmission

Review

I bought this car with about 24k miles, currently 164k. Was gonna try to push it til 200k, but, Engine light staying on for a year now. Car has shut off on me twice while at the stop light (have a new battery). Ignition switch was changed out under the recall. EGR changed a few times. Engine going. I put quite a bit of $$ into it already. No sense putting any more. I got my thrill for 9 years. I had visor, wood grain and wing put on. I loved my car. Will always have a place in my heart... I think I'm done with acura though. Don't like the shape of new TL. I like the RL, but, I think I'm getting GS300.


Best Features

Body Style, Smooth Ride (for the 1st 6 yrs), Bose Stereo


Worst Features

Engine-Transmission, EGR valve, Ignition

Review

I bought my car almost 5 years ago and never had any problem until now. My car currently had only 65,350 miles on it. The problem with my car is while I am driving on the road it shuts down the engine (on the busy road). The battery is almost brand new. I think ignition switch is bad. Hopefully, they recall ignition switch so I don't have to pay money out of my pocket.


Best Features

interior for the year 1999


Worst Features

ignition switch and better gas

Review

Great car, I bought it from a friend for 2500 dollars dirt cheap with all the gizmos i took out the GPS because i never really used it and added a pioneer stereo system.Nice smooth ride very fast. the stereo system rocked when i got it i have made a g=few changes now like a 12" Mtx sub and its even better. Love driving the car. I buying a Wings West body about $800 total but makes the car have a little more presence on the street. If you are looking for a tuner car this car is great the V-Tec engine is great engine to start with.


Best Features

Love the Stereo,Moon Roof/Sun Roof, i also enjoy the sport shifter its nice for when your in a daring mood. But you have to love the v-tecs kick at about 4000 rpms.


Worst Features

Would have been an even better car if it had came in a manual transmission
