Not What I Expected

Vehicle

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

Review

Convinced to trade new, 1.5 month old, gorgeous '03 Maxima SE on new '03 Acura TL. Each day since purchase, (6 months ago) I've regretted purchasing the '03 TL. Maxima was much faster, thrill to drive; loved engine, exterior, interior (everything). Honestly don't care for the Acura at all (engine, interior, exterior). Acura rides rough, and is sluggish relative to Maxima. Sometimes bump head (only 6'0" tall) when getting in (even with seat at lowest point). Loved the last Acura Legend, but '03 TL falls short. No complaints about reliability, but I plan to get a 2003 Maxima this year (don't like look of 2004 Maxima).

Best Features

Chrome door handles - nice touch

Worst Features

Smoother ride, more stylish interior an exterior (particularly wheels, body and softer leather); more driver headroom; easier tilt steering wheel; better stereo. Use LED instead of LCD interior displays. include basic trip computer.
