Feel good about 03' TL
By Stardom2k2 on
2003 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
Just got a blk/blk 03'TL plain for
~$28.2k/5.99%/60Mo, after taxes 30k
exactly. IT IS A GLORIFIED ACCORD but
that's good! I like it. I get decent
pickup. Handling is firm. 1st and 2nd
in autostick is useless, so save it to
change lanes. I just leave it in
fullauto. Fit is tight, no excessive
noise. Exterior is decent but the 16"
needs an upgrade. (I think the S has
17s) Many do-dads. I bought it because
I think it's reliable, a good ride,
good resale, decent service, and decent
looks. I somewhat regret not getting
the TypeS but I still like the base TL.
Mostly: VTEC, HID, Tinted tilting RSide
mirror on reverse, 6-InDash 5-speaker
Bose CD (sounds awesome for a stock),
and heated seats. Great trunk space
and almost a full-spare!
Somewhat: Decent leather trims and
surfaces. 2 memory powered seats
Controls are idiotproof but uninspired.
If you're not gonna use real woodtrim,
don't use any! Displays should be
brighter and actually match color. Need
steeringCD controls ie. reverse/change
CD/pause/stop. Get rid of useless
manual lumbar. Backseat seems small.
