Review of the 2004 Acura TL

  • Luxurious, extremely well equipped and enjoyable to drive, the stylish new TL should be on your test-drive list if you're shopping for a sedan over $30K.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Luxurious interior, long list of standard equipment, powerful V6 engine, slick-shifting six-speed manual, pleasant blend of ride comfort and fun.

  • Cons

    Can't match the athleticism of some German rivals.

  • What's New for 2004

    The TL has been completely redesigned for 2004. A 270-horsepower V6 is standard, and both a six-speed manual and a five-speed automatic transmission are available. The level of luxury inside the cabin is up, and driving dynamics are better than ever.

Honda made a jewel

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan w/Summer Tires and Navigation System (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

I was torn between the g35 sedan and the tl. I am so glad I chose the Acura. It has been an outstanding vehicle to drive. It has every bell and whistle you could ask for. The engine is very responsive and it has plenty of power. The only thing keeping this car out of perfection is the front wheel drive. I think 270 horses would feel better on the rear wheels. Aside from that it is an awesome investment and Honda made a good product




A great car that needs

Vehicle: 2004 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan w/Summer Tires and Navigation System (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

I've owned this car for about 4 months now and have enjoyed it a lot. The power is excellent and rivals many other vehicles in it's price range. Interior comfort is premier. The navigation system is the best in the business (Alpine has always had the best in my view). Exterior styling is great! And a factory audio system that won't leave you wanting more. There are drawbacks though. Front- wheel drive. Poor turning radius. Voice recognition system that apparently understands what it wants to.




Great car, just waiting for

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan w/Summer Tires and Navigation System (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

This is a fun car that is a decent handler with good steering feel. It is at its best when passing or accelerating on straightaway. It's at its worse when turning a corner because of an annoying tug on steering wheel. Can't wait for sh-awd with same engine or maybe a little bit more power. Then it would be ultimate luxury car!!




2 good 2 b true?

Vehicle: 2004 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan w/Summer Tires and Navigation System (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

This is the first car that, after 3 days of detailing and inspecting, I could find NO flaws. The build quality is top rate. The styling speaks for itself. I have a feeling of pride and exclusivity every time I drive it. I recently completed an 800 mile road trip and found it very comfortable, with an efficient and silent climate control system. I averaged 29 mpg. The navigation system and voice command is amazingly accurate and easy to use. You can ride all day without aches, pains, or wanting to get there in a hurry. The power and speed is beyond most people's wildest needs. The 6-channel 5.1 surround sound DVD is the best car audio I have ever heard. 95% of BMW at 50% of cost.




Perfect car under $35k

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan w/Summer Tires and Navigation System (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

This is a kindda car I always wanted. With all options, with all toys, with a good performance, with good styling and still good price. The only car I could justify for the price. Best value for $$. I'd compared G35, CTS, base 530i, ES300 and TL was not a difficult decision.




All around athlete

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan w/Summer Tires and Navigation System (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

This car performs so well in so many areas--speed, braking, handling, comfort plus has all amenities of cars 20k more. The gearing is quick and smooth; above 4k rpm car gets a mean personality. There are gripes though: mileage (21mpg) is disappointing; minimal low end torque; xm satellite instead of sirius. But overall best car that I have owned.
