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


Review

The car is very nice, but Acura jacked the price up and now I think I overpaid. The dealer made me think the product was like gold. They said that they were all sold out, for months... Then, 'lo and behold, one showed up and I bought it for full sticker. I got caught up in the moment and now I am somewhat disappointed. The car is very nice, but not worth 35K. You are much better off getting the 3-series BMW.


Favorite Features

Nav System and dash layout are very good. The voice recognition doesn't work too well. Don't be deceived like I was. The dealer gave it some commands that were easily understood. It doesn't work that well for most of the commands it is supposed to understand.


Suggested Improvements

seats are uncomfortable after about 45 minutes and the car can is noisey on bad surfaces. Need better seats and more sound dampening.

Review

i've only had it a week, but so far i just enjoy being in it. i had a 2000 tl which was the best car ive ever owned (pevious cars bmw 528, volvo 960)never had a single problem with 2000 tl in 45000 miles.the 2004 has a stiffer body more solid,vault like feel,better handling, and much quicker.sound system is scary good.the total package is just subperb.if i get the same reliability as my 2000 t.l. i could be an acura poster boy.

Review

We just bought the new tl 2 months ago and this car definetly made us smile. Body styling was awesome especially w/ underbody kit..you gotto see it to appreciate it. The interior? hard to believe it's made by honda..excellent!! sound system's superb espcially when using a DVD-A. Everything's soft. I use to drive Tl Type S Everything is totaly diff. except the power. If you are planning to buy BMW 3 s or Lexus, Try the TL first!


Favorite Features

Definetly the sound system and the bluetooth.

Review

Was the first one to purshase off the dealers lot a 2004 TL in October in Nighthawk Black Pearl with Nav. Never owned a black car and was a little hesitant about the color but wife convinced me that since the car had a extremely dark blue hue to it in direct sunlight it would be a nice change. This car is head and shoulders above previous 2001 TL which I owned and Acura is more than on the right track with this redesign. Car handling is outstanding and the car is quieter than previous models. This car is extremely solid and for the money deserves a very, very serious look in realtionship to other vehicles in its' class.


Favorite Features

Voice recognition, DVD Surround Audio lighted controls in the steering wheel. Improved soft leather seating, large DVD navigation screen, quieter ride. Adjustable headrest for all seats.


Suggested Improvements

Electronic steering wheel which adjust to selected driver and seat settings.

Review

I went to test drive the TL, expecting to eliminate it from my search. As soon as I sat in it, I fell in love! The ride is so smooth, the interior design is great, the new exterior is so much sportier than last year's model.


Favorite Features

The colors of the dash! The smooth ride!

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


Review

I replaced a 99 TL with the 04 model. The design, performance, and comfort are excellent. The voice controlled Navigation system is a huge step up. Also, voice can control the climate control, audio (with 5.1 surround and DTS, and wireless phone. Truly a technological marvel. Only complaint is that the engine seems to be at too low in RPMs at 50-60 mph and I feel vibration in the gas pedal. It is truly the first TL that performs as a sports sedan and does not disappoint. Technologically it is a joy (the mirrors even tilt down when you shift to reverse). At this point, I highly recommend.


Favorite Features

The 270 HP, the voice activated controls, navi system, the incredible audio system, and the wireless phone.


Suggested Improvements

You must have a cell phone with Bluetooth technology and not many phones currently do. Also, since it has been shortened and has a tighter suspension, ride is not as smooth as I was used to. The HP and handling makes you forget that though. Also, why still only premium gas?

Review

Fun to drive, obvious quality, intuitive instrumentation; A real head turner that's bound to evolve into a world class vehicle. The bluetooth works great with my Sony Ericsson cel phone and the XM stereo sounds awsomely superb! Its fun to step into the car every time! Handling is good, although not as good as the BMW 5 Series which costs 18-20 grand more.


Favorite Features

Bluetooth and triptronic manual clutchless tranny. THe sound system is awesome!


Suggested Improvements

Larger trunk would be nice and don't be fooled-Its somewhat of a gas guzzler.I'm currently getting around 17 mpg around town. Difficulty in reaching the seat belt is annoying.

Review

I purchased this car on the release date and have been extremely happy. It is beautiful with lines that draw alot of attention (especially TL drivers) It handles great and has so much technology and options you have study so you dont miss them. The surround sound is fantastic and the voice commands with the bluetooth make it very functional. I am very glad i got this car as I looked at BMW, Mercedes, Infiniti, Lexus, and several other cars and I believe it is by far the best


Favorite Features

navi, surround sound, performance, looks and bluetooth


Suggested Improvements

I am satisfied
