1996 Acura TL 3.2 Premium 4dr Sedan


Wanted it as soon as I saw it. Bought a 8 yr old car with 69,000 miles on it, expecting to make it to 100,000 with grace (Honda engine!). In the first 6 months replaced battery, starter, had random misfire, replaced sparkplugs, heater failed, sound system failed. NOW I am replacing a blown head gasket and am worried about the antifreeze that was BURNING out my tail pipe. Minor cosmetics were fixed like cupholder cover. Not only did I pay too much at the dealership originally but I could have bought a new car for the amount of money I have put into this one. As soon as this car is out of the shop I am selling it to someone who can deal with fixing it every week.

Best Features

Sunroof/power everything/heated seats/good power even with AC/ very stylish/ extremely fun to drive

Worst Features

Make easier to repair, extremely high cost for repairs due to trouble accessing main mechanisms. Reduce wind noise with better sealings, better quality cupholder cover. Reliability was less then satifactory for a Honda.
