I purchased my 2000 TL new and have owned 8 1/2 yrs as of this writing. It's a terrific car overall. Solidly built, a great value, rock-solid reliability and just plain cheap to keep. I have 54,000 miles on the car and have replaced the tires twice, the front brakes once and have had all maintenance performed at Acura dealerships. Minor service intervals (every 3,500 miles) run less than $100 and majors run less than $200. My only real complaint concerns the rear door interior panels. A gap between the vinyl and the plastic part that contains the window up/down button has appeared at different times on both panels. One panel was replaced free of charge, but not the second one.
Acceleration, handling, climate control system, interior roominess, Bose sound system, heated seats and mirrors, dealer service and attention to detail.
Road noise from the tires is transmitted into the cabin, limited choices for tires
