2003 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

If you're after sport sedan, drop Acura
from you list in favor of BMW 3, Saab 9-
3, Infiniti G35, Mercedes C. It's too
heavy and big. Nose dive in turns,
lousy brakes, slow acceleration,
awkward ride and stability in curves
does not appeal to enthusiatic driver.
Otherwise, this is great
family/businessman car, just a bit
outdated as compared to competition.


Best Features

Instrument cluster, front sits comfort, great driving position, quiet engine, shoulder room, smooth trasmission, fit and finish close to Mercedes


Worst Features

Ride quality is horrible, car counts all imperfections on the road. Road and tire noise are evident. Not too many modern gizmos as compared to newer cars. Slow acceleration between 90-120 kmh. Body ridigity is not the best I saw. More leg room for driver required.

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


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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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

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


Review

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.


Best Features

transmission and navi. system


Worst Features

real wood and manual drive from the first 1 gear.

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


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.


Best Features

Engine Power.


Worst Features

I'll be nice. Braking system and suspension.

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.
