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).
Chrome door handles - nice touch
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
