Vehicle

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


Review

I just purchased my TL-type S and love it. After looking at other cars in the class I found nothing that has as much as this car does for the price. I test drove both the base and Type-S and I must say there is a supstaintial difference in proformance. The Nav system is easy to use, with a little practice.


Favorite Features

The power and proformance, the interior quality and the Nav system.


Suggested Improvements

Take the clock out of the Nav system, because when the screen is off there is no clock in the car.

Review

This car is absolutely fantastic! Fun to drive, great performance, very easy on the eyes... It has great build quality, have 15,000 miles and haven't had any problems. Also considered Volvo S60, but performance couldn't compare. Simply a great value!

Xenon headlights, build quality, performance

Review

It has been 6~7 months since I bought this vehicle and I like the ride of this car and superb control on the road. Leather seats are very comfortable and ample leg room in the rear seats. Trunk is also pretty big. Music system of Bose is awesome. Navigation helps me on the unkown roads. The V6 power is excellent and when using the manual gears power is much better you can feel it. Over all a very decent buy and you get the value of your money with all these standard features.


Favorite Features

Handling of road is very nice of this vehicle. Sharp turns are perfect to control. I like the 6 in dash CD changer and Bose sub woofer gives very crisp & clear sound. Love the V6 power which I mentioned before also. Shifting the gears when in the manual drive is also very smooth.


Suggested Improvements

This car does not have enough head room. I am 5'10" and when I am backing the car I always hit the roof. Work on making it more quieter from inside. Cruise & audio control buttons on the steering wheel should be lighted. hard to see the buttons in dark.

Review

I shopped all entry level lux sedans for a good 4 months. It finally came down to 9-3 Vector and the tl-s. Price, reliability, non turbo, and inside room finally won out over it's swede competitor. For the money you cannot beat this car. The engine is great, and the clutchless manual feature is fantastic.


Favorite Features

engine, cd changer, all things standard!


Suggested Improvements

faux wood on the inside is a little porn if you get black interior. allow shifting from 1-2. auto on headlights.

Review

The comforts of a BMW and the performance of a Corvette, coupled with the reliability and customer service of Acura, make this car a no-brainer. I've had a great time driving this vehicle and receive compliments from folks repeatedly. I've owned luxury cars and sports cars, but this has the best of both worlds (especially if you're like me and can't swing the Mercedes S-Class yet)...


Favorite Features

styling, power/handling, navigation, onstar, luxury feel


Suggested Improvements

If Acura could put all of the performance/styling qualities of TLS into the body size of RL, it'd be tough to beat
