Hard to look beyond Acura/Honda
By Hondas 4 life on
1999 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan
This Acura is a benchmark for value & rigid construction. Excellent feel & bang for the buck. Offers many standard features that are often expensive options on other entry luxury sedans. Decent mileage & get go for its not too powerful 3.2 4 speed auto trans. Even though only 4 speed still a performer. Ride is compliant & quiet, not Lexus quiet but defintely more fun. Engine is top notch, idles silently after +150k miles! Longevity of electronics, mechanics, etc. are phenomenal! Only problem we had was a clogged EGR port that was easily taken care of @ the dealer. Love it so much we went out & got the beautiful '06 TL. Just watch out for the trans. problems from 2000-2003 thats all.
Everything included as standard like xenon lighting, heated leather & outside mirrors. Reliability & excellent track record of minimal problems. The engine needs absolutely nothing over its life beyond typical maintenance, idles & revs silently. The manual option for the trans. is extra excitement.
Actually have to really think about this, perhaps adding a little more low end sound to the bose stereo and update the CD player to accommodate all CD-Rs and MP3s. Further differentiate its appearance from the Accord.
