Excellent Car for the Price
By shadowfenrir on


1996 Acura TL 2.5 Premium 4dr Sedan


I bought this for $13000 ($10000US)
after selling my '90 4Runner for gas
reasons. This car is good on gas for
its size (about 10L/100km or 24mpg in
city driving and 6.3L/100km or about
30mpg on the highway). It is very
comfortable with its nice leather
bucket seats (although the leather isnt
as high class as in the newer cars, or
even as in the older lexus cars, but
its good). The engine is very
responsive and refined even at high
RPM, but the transmission tends to
shift at weird times. I haven't had any
problems at 160000km(100000mi) other
than c/v boots needing replacement.
Great car!

Best Features

Auto climate control Nice seating. EXCELLENT stock sound system. 8 speakers and sounds very crisp and loud with good bass. EXCELLENT reliability. No powertrain trouble or major repairs needed. Good fit and finish on the paint and interior materials. Heated mirrors.

Worst Features

They could have used better materials on the door handles on the inside. It looks like a chrome foil was wrapped around them. Needs a rear spoiler and bigger rims (stock is 15") and better tint on glass.
