After a test drive in 04 TL,I was
fortunite enough to convince my son-in-
law to assume the remaining two years
of my "03 BMW 330xi lease. TL is FAR
SUPERIOR to 330 in almost every
category..for $12,000. less!!
Horsepower, torque, braking, styling,
interior, comfort,roominess, and
especially State of the art content
like Bluetooth, XM satellite radio,etc.
270 hp provides plenty of punch.
Bluetooth (hands free phone system] is
GREAT. Commercial free satelite radio
is[to my suprise] also great.
remote engine start would be a welcome
feature. fold down rear seats would
offer more storage .
2004 Acura TL Sedan 3.2 4dr Sedan w/Navigation System (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
This car is a dream to drive. Can't
beat the value this car offers, and it
should hold up well if Acura's past
performance is any indicator. I drove
and researched a lot of cars in this
class, and I don't think you can beat
the TL for the money. NICE
NAVI is unbelievable, XM Radio,
soundsystem, bluetooth, the cool blue
lights inside, etc etc etc
The brake light seems to light up the
entire back window red, which makes it
difficult to see when backing
up...rear headrests should be a bit
lower to allow for better rear vision.
Having had BMWs and Acuras for the past
30 years, I can assert this is one of
my favorite two of all time. It is far
far superior to my 2001 3.2TL and much
more responsive on mountain curves than
my previous 3.5RL. I love it!!

In 25 mile hour zone, 45 is no problem.

the ride and seats. The ride is a bit
harsh and the front seats are not
comfortable on a trip. Not enought
