The car is great to drive. The engine
and tranny work well together. I use
the sport shift a lot especially in
city drivig. Could handle a little
better. Will get better tires when they
need replacing. Good stereo and leather
seats are comfortable.
Engine and sportshift tranny. Good gas
mileage for a powerful V6.
The dash need improvement. Little
noises can be bothersome. Quieter
wipers. Better trunk hinges.
OVERALL THIS IS A DEPENDABLE , FUN TO
DRIVE VEHICLE. I HAVE EXPERIENCED NO
MAJOR PROBLEMS EXCEPT FOR PEELING PAINT
ON THE MOLDING WHICH MY ACURA
DEALERSHIP HAS PROMPTLY REPAIRED. THE
3.2 TL IS A PLEASURE TO DRIVE.
LOW INTERIOR NOISE AND A COMFORTABLE
YET SPORTY RIDE.
Solid, solid car. I drove nothing but
GM products before this, and let me
tell you there is a difference. I
found my copy used with 43K miles and
it feels brand new. Fantastic value.
I drove the vehicle off the lot for
less than the sticker price on a top-
of-the-line Civic. Dealer took care
of all of my worries. The performance
is also surprising. It blows the
ES300 off the road and is one of the
better handling sedans I've driven.
You have to really ease into the
throttle in order not to just launch
the car. And this is just the base
car, not the Type-S!
Value. The amount of car I got for
the price is astounding. All the
standard features are great, esp. the
moonroof and Bose stereo.
Gas milage. Getting good milage is
largely dependant on driving very
sedately and using premium fuel. Plus
the cup holder sucks. It has all
these trays so you can configure it to
fit 5 different cup sizes, yet a
simple can of Coke still rattles
around in it.
