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


Review

Very luxurious exterior and interior, with the speed to match. I drove a Lexus IS300, but the interior in the TL is so much nicer. Also, the in dash 6 CD Changer is great. unlike those that you have to open the glove box or go in the trunk to take cds out or put new cds in. And also the SPEED! I'm a high school kid and me and friends like to race cars. I keep my car's exterior stock so no one can tell when i'm about to destroy them in a race.


Best Features

6 CD Changer, Xenon Lights, Interior, side mirror that automatically angles down when reversing,


Worst Features

Have the fog lights match the Xenon headlights (Xenon lights are white and the fog lights are yellow)....doesn't really match...but nothin big

Review

I bought the TL brand new in Sep, 2003. I don't drive it a lot so it only has 10k miles so far. I love the powerful engine and tons of features comes with the car, lots of luxury feathers and great looking. I never had any problem with it except the rattling from the sunroof which was fixed under warranty. Dealership is great too, free loaner, free wash and free inspection. Best value for your money.


Best Features

heated/memory seats, very convenient if you have two drivers. Great sound system, powerful engine, leather, sunroof, all the safety features. Best of all, it's all comes standard with a very reasonable price.


Worst Features

none

Review

Still drive my 90 legend and performs
well. Thought I would upgrade for an
03 TL, what a mistake. We have put 10k
on the car sense purchase and its been
in the shop four times and they still
cant fix it. Cruise goes off with the
slightest bump in the road. Dealer
adjusted brake pedal and car locked up
all four wheels and had to be towed
three different times. Seat heaters
very minimally if at all. Trying like
the dickens to get rid of it. Cant
depend on it to take the family on a
trip, so it just sits in my garage...
Bose Stereo sounds a bit better than AM


Best Features

Xenon Headlights


Worst Features

Trained mechanics, more comfortable seating, better stereo, seat heaters that work, etc...

Review

All about Acura is total hype.
Terrible car inside & out; Seat is
hard on back during trips. Just found
out about transmission recall when it
malfunctioned. Acura didn't contact
me (I'm at same address as when
purchased); found out by researching
NHTSA when tranny broke. NHTSA
says this car (& other Acura models
2001 - 2003) may lock up & result in a
crash. Experience w/Acura has been a
rude awakening. Service in past has
also been sub-standard. No more
Acuras or Hondas for me. Worst
performance of a new vehicle ever. No
wonder it is priced well below
competition -- it can't compete in its
class.


Worst Features

Take note of your competition. This car seriously lacks styling, luxury and comfort comparble to its competition, Infinity, Lexus, BMW, Audi. Gas mileage is terrible too!
