2004 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I had my search down to 3 cars 1) Infiniti G35X ruled this one out in my opinion the styling does not compete with the Acura mainly inside the car 2) Lexus ES300 Just no Fun to drive 3) Volvo S60R not worth the extra $10,000. The TL Gave me everything I needed a big trunk do wish it had 60/40Split. Comfortable quite drive lots of power would be nice if the power went to all 4 wheels though and the best navigation system out there. All in all you get a lot of bang for your buck in terms of luxury customer service and performance that I did not think any other car offered.


Favorite Features

Navigation & voice activation is great it will do anything the car can do. Set your temp go to a specific radio station. Well done and laid out interior design and 270Hp. Amazing speakers sub could use an upgrade and Mp3 option would be nice. Be prepared to buy Dvd Audio though.


Suggested Improvements

Would like to see all Wheel drive Version like the G35X 60/40 Split Rear Would be nice as well. For all the things to car does being totally voice activated automatic headlamps would be nice.

Review

Does not have the sport of my last acura, integra GSR. First to second shift is notchy, does not spool up as quickly. Stereo is great, but other than that can't justify its 34k price tag.


Favorite Features

Great stereo


Suggested Improvements

Does not handle well compared to integra, or any bmw 3 series. keep looking

Review

The ride is very harsh, brought about by racy tires etal, much harder than an Accord. These tires result in a wider turning radius over the Accord which makes it hard to manuver in tight spaces. The windows on both front sides rattle which would never happen on an Accord. While we like the TL, Honda needs to turn up the quality button. We also have an Accord V6.


Favorite Features

Nice dash and controls. Handling is excellent but much too harsh.


Suggested Improvements

Improve ride comfort and tighten up windows and other quality items.

Review

This was our 3rd (and last). The first two never had a warranty issue. The 2004 is a mess. Have had all kind of problems with the 2004 TL. Acura was using defective Firestone EL42 and ended up replacing all 4 tires. The car could hardly be driven over 35 mph for about a month after delivery. It had some engine problems. Was 4 days at the shop. Recently the passenger window would no go up. Another day at the shop. We contacted Acura after delivery regards the tire issue. I was never contacted by their local rep. Took Acura to arbitration. Don't bother as the process favors the manufacturer. In short, we got stuck with a lemon and Acura was arrogant in its response to our complaints.


Suggested Improvements

Buy a Lexus or an Infiniti
