2000 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan


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.


Best Features

leather, good engine


Worst Features

fix the darn transmission

2000 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan


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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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."


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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