2003 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
Hadn't planned on buying this car, but
glad we did. Excellent value for the $$.
Beautiful exterior and interior styling,
much nicer-looking than Accord or
Infinity. I am normally a German-car
driver, but I think this car has an
excellent mix of comfort, handling,
smoothness, power, gas mileage, and
all-around bang for the buck. We get
much better HWY gas mileage than I
expected (~28+ mpg). Very quiet ride.
Feels & drives very safe & solid.
Suspension eats up road bumps like
nothing. Quiet smooth engine, but still
growls when you step on the throttle!
HID headlights are excellent! Very
comfortable on road trips (calms me down
as a driver, even in fast city traffic).
Smooth suspension, but still takes turns
well. Plenty of power for 99% of people.
Great-sounding stereo. Minimal body roll
for a car this size. Memory
seats/mirrors are great.
Not too fond of foot parking brake.
Throttle is a bit touchy in stop-and-go
traffic. Climate control should allow a
VENT-only setting without making me turn
OFF the A/C every time I turn the fan
on. Somewhat cheap-looking interior
plastic wood trim.
