Vehicle

2002 Acura TL 3.2 Type-S 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)

Review

A disappointing car. Transaxle failed at 25K miles, took 5 dealer visits to get repaired. ABS sensor failed. Dealer used the wrong viscosity oil on two services. The correct oil (5W20) is down the street at Pep Boys, dealer doesn't care. 40-foot turning radius is huge. Handles heavy, not nimble, plows in turns. Not a "fun" car. Stock tires howl, ride is always jiggly. Rear seat doesn't fold down. No key hole for trunk. No tether for the gas cap! Minimal headroom. Navigation system is a $2000 mistake--way too complex. Buy a gas station map and save $2K. Not a quality car or dealer, and my first and last Acura.

Best Features

Power 32 mpg highway, 20 overall.

Worst Features

Smaller turning circle. Smoother ride. Better dealers. Quieter tires. More nimble handling. Simpler navigation system.
