One of the best cars I've owned. I just purchased it this year 2012 and it's a 2000. I traded in a 2009 Pontiac G5 GT with only 37,000 miles in on this car which had 122,000 miles at purcahse and I would do it over again. I absolutely love the way the car drives, the interior, and the outside. It drives smooth as a brand new car. The only thing that I have an issue with is the cup holders. They don't really do anything with a 20 oz water bottle or pop bottle, it more or less just topples front to back when driving. I'm a realtor by trade and the car is more than spacious enough. I could have bought a newer car, but I really prefer Model years 1999-2001 for some reason.

2000 TL has 164,000 miles for original owner.
Other than the usual recommended maintenance items, the only unscheduled repair was the $5,000 transmission replacement at 120,000.
The car just runs with 28mpg, freeway, 23 around our hilly town.
All 4 struts have been replaced by dealer ~$2000 and the tires have been replaced 3 times.
Battery replaced 3 times.
Brakes have been replaced once.
The leather looks great inside but driver's side has some cracks.
Carpeting is fine.
I bought a 2003 in addition and will eventually purchase another Acura if they keep their record up.
Just love this car!

Purchased used in 2004 from a relative who bought it new. Found online the tramsmission had problems which had not yet been mailed to the owners. Took it in to Acura service who said the gears weren't discolored so the recall instructed them to increase coolant to the gears. Took it in last year because it was stalling and paid Acura service over $1000 for FUEL INJECTORS! Now at 68K miles, the transmission is almost dead. Acura service says I should have changed the transmission fluid every 15,000 even though they didn't mention this the several times it was brought in and the extended warranty for this known transmission problem expired after 7 years or 100,000 miles. Never again Acura.
A new five-speed sequential SportShift automatic transmission and free-flowing intake manifold debut. A side-airbag system becomes standard as does a dual-stage inflator for the front-passenger airbag. The optional navigation system now features a DVD database.
