Great car

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)

I havde only had the car for about a month but I am very satisfied. I was shocked to hear about people complaining about the rattles and braking problems. I found just the opposite, this car is rock solid with no rattles (so far). I've heard alot of discussion comparing this car with german made vehicles but lets get serious, you can't even touch one of those "other cars" for the same price. This is alot of car for the money.




Fun stuff!

Absolutely not a hitch in 9000 miles, except the dealer wanting $100+ for tire rotation and oil change.

I have driven the TL for a little over a year. Purchase the car because it driven the best value for the money and came fully equipped. Upgraded to 225/50 tires which has improved the handling.
