Review

I just bought the TL Type S and absolutely love the car. Previously drove a Maxima SE and this car blows it away for only pennies more. The Navi system is a definite must.


Favorite Features

Power, Navi System, Radio, Comfort


Suggested Improvements

Auto lights, a littel rattle in the moonroof when the shade is open

Review

Just purchased my 2003 TLS last week. After owning Acura's in the past, I knew about the quality and dependability, but had no idea of the value of the TLS. This car flat out performs. It has great power, comfort and features. The back seat is roomy enough for my 3 children or 2 adults to fit comfortably. The engine has power to spare and the features rival any entry level luxary sedan on the market.


Favorite Features

Driver seat memory, optional 5 speed manual transmission, sunroof, powerful engine.


Suggested Improvements

Auto up/down feature for passenger side window, better speakers for stereo, day time running lamps.

Review

This car has a disappointing amount of squeaks and rattles. The brake system is one of a toy car. I thought because it was an Acura that it would be a better car then a plain old Honda. Boy was I ever wrong. I know a few people that own both of these cars the TL and the Accord. TL drivers share their horror stories while Accord drivers worship their cars.


Favorite Features

Engine Power.


Suggested Improvements

I'll be nice. Braking system and suspension.
