Buy a BMW!
By NoAcurafan on
2002 Acura TL 3.2 Type-S 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
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
32 mpg highway, 20 overall.
Smaller turning circle. Smoother ride.
Better dealers. Quieter tires. More
nimble handling. Simpler navigation system.
