2003 Acura TL 3.2 Type-S 3.2 Type-S 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I just picked up an S type 3.2 and I want to say that I am very happy with my decision. Acura is more car than others in it's class. The car came fully loaded with 6CD chnger, full NAV syst., Onstar services, electric seats (heating option as well) along with way more room in the car. Mercedes and Infiniti wanted so much more for the features that came standard with the Acura. With the money that I saved I can pay for my insurance and gas throughout the year. Most imortant feature on the car is that it drives well...fast, handles well, and the interior is extremely quite. Great car and a great deal!!...260hp helps as well!


Best Features

The drive of the car...smooth and powerful. The car came with more options standard that any other in it's class.


Worst Features

I like this body style in comparison to the 2004 model that is coming out. Seems like this model has a little more gerth. The new '04 model looks just like the new Honda Accord.

Review

Great car. I would buy another one. The only problem is that we needed brake pads after 12,000 miles. No problems in 16,000 miles. A great car.


Best Features

select shift and the power. It reallty goes. Cruise control is east and I like the steering wheel mounted cruise, and radio. The navigation system is great and easy to use.


Worst Features

larger brake pads

Review

This has to be the most affordable sports sedan on the planet. Where else can you lease 260hp for a little more than $300/mo? A 2 dr accord is almost the same price. Why buy Honda when you can buy their luxury brand for not much more?


Best Features

Seats are comfortable on long hauls, power is more than ample in almost all situations; providing a M5 doesn't pull up next to you.


Worst Features

Needs compass, dual climate control, more controls on steering wheel, advanced cruise control

Review

After test driving the TL type S, I just have to get one. I was looking into GS300 and almost took delivery on one. The handling and horsepower on the type S is awsome. Sure the brand new 2004 are coming but the 03' TL type S is still a great performance car and should not be overlooked.


Best Features

260hp, 17in tires, 6cd changers, heated seats and side mirrors


Worst Features

Would be nice if a rear spoiler is standard on type S
