I thought Acura's were good?
By ShouldaBoughtaCaddy on

Vehicle

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

Review

Purchased car used with 90,000km on it. Tranny blew at 185km. Dealer wanted $6000 to replace it, not under warranty. Only under certain VIN's were the trannys covered under warranty. Had a Honda Sabre (Japanese TL) tranny imported from Japan, installed for $3K, seems ok for now. The car is pretty quick. My V8 5.3L GMC Sierra get almost the same MPG. Repairs are expensive and front wheel drive cars are a pain to work on. Honda (Acura) has totally dropped the ball on this one. They have built their reputation on reliability and performance. What happened here Mr Honda? I've had much better luck with my 95 Nissan, my 98 Civic and my 02 GMC Sierra. Shoulda bought a caddy!

Favorite Features

HID's, Bose stereo, heated seats, Vtec, memory seats and memory keys.

Suggested Improvements

Transmission, Transmission, Transmission. No compass, I thought this was touring car. Fuel economy is like my V8 truck!
