I have had my DEG (dark emerald green) TL for 2 and a half years and have had no problem with it at all. 117k and still on original tranny and runs better than new. I have upgrades many engine components to pull some great performance (faster than a Type S) out of this car w/o effecting it's reliability and actually increasing overall gas mileage from 25 to 28 now. Interior is great, make sure you strip the paint off your shiftknob, it is chrome underneath you know (99 TL only). Exterior is very sexy and elegant, I think it stands out when detailed properly. Stock stereo isn't the greatest, I don't like Bose at all. Low maintenance vehicle and easy to work on yourself. Rotors lasted 100k+.
performance, style, comfort. wonderful on long drive, standard features are unmatched, stock exhaust flows very well, vtec sounds sweet with cold air intake.
manual tranny would ideal, as well as AWD or RWD. These cars would be real "sleepers" with a manual and RWD.
