2000 Acura TL Sedan 3.2 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car because it topped all the dependability ratings. At 90K miles, I've not had one single problem - replaced brakes, tires, battery, oil. I never use dealerships for service - total price gouging. My honest local shop can do this stuff. Drives like a dream, soft quiet ride. The backseat is not made for adults, but is fine for kids under 16. I just checked my gas mileage and it was exactly as advertised, city=17, highway=22 (no a/c). I totally disagree with all the editors saying the exterior is bland, looks great with a spoiler.


Favorite Features

Handling, Sport Shift in the mountains, comfortable seats


Suggested Improvements

They put them all in the 2004 TL.

What else can I say. This car has been everything I could ask for. I spend 2-3 hours a day in my car so I need one I like and I have found it. 93K miles and still no major problems.

Review

Love the car except for a major problem - transmission. Acura had just placed a 4th transmission in my car. I am trading it in for something else because my 100k warranty is about to expire and at the rate it's been, I expect to have a 5th transmission in one year.


Favorite Features

leather, good engine


Suggested Improvements

fix the darn transmission

Review

Despite being a 4-door with ample room, it is nimble and quite quick. Aside from two points below, I have no complaints at all. The car is very well- made, the sound system is good, so is the gas mileage, and the onboard GPS navigation system rocks! I would definitely buy another Acura in the future, based on my experience with the 2000 3.2TL.


Favorite Features

On-board GPS navigation system (This is why I bought the car in 2000 rather than a Lexus, Audi, etc.)


Suggested Improvements

1) When in full automatic, it's a bit sluggish until RPM gets up to 2,000, at which point it perks up. When shifting manually, this is not a problem. 2) A telescoping steering wheel would have been nice. I often felt as if I were having to "reach" for the steering wheel.

Review

I have enjoyed my TL. Sometimes I wish I had waited a year for the Type S. My over-all fuel economy is 22.5 mpg. On the rare times I take it on a freeway trip, I can get over 30 mpg, and have gone over 32 mpg on 3 or 4 occassions. Took a trip to Oregon in 2002 and drove 1100 miles one day with no fatigue or the tyoical "tired butt."


Favorite Features

The 5 speed manumatic. I use the manual mode in the snow, and to pass logging trucks going over Oregon's Blue Mountains.


Suggested Improvements

Put a 20 gallon fuel tank in it to extend the range.
