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

Review

While I love my type S, Acura has a
known issue with a bearing in the
transmission that wears out far too
fast and leaves the car stranded. I
encountered this problem during a 1200
mile road trip. Fortunately, I was
only 40 miles away from an Acura
dealership. While they gave me a
decent rental car, I miss my Acura.
Not only that, now I have to go pick it
up 600 miles from home. I love the
car, and hopefully, this is the only
issue I'll have. When buying or
leasing, make sure your Acura does not
have the faulty transmission bearing
installed, or get it replaced
immediately.

Best Features

Comfort, sporty ride, tight suspension, acceleration makes me giddy, trunk space, long list of excellent standard features.

Worst Features

One touch open and close on the sun roof, bigger cabin pass through to trunk, adjustable cup holders.
