2001 Acura TL Sedan 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car was my father's company car. Commuting from Long Island to NJ everyday, he put on about 35,000 miles per year. I have had the car for over a year, and I put on about 2K per year , used as a station car. This car is rock solid, and quality is excellent. The interior is bland, and the styling outside is also bland. The car just went through the transmission recall, and was found to be fine after 113K miles. I will keep this car for another 10 years, specifically as a station car due to its quality and reliability.


Best Features

Ride, quality, engine, sound system.


Worst Features

Fog lights should be standard, less bland interior, more power

2001 Acura TL Sedan 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is my first Acura product. My
wife had a 1996 Honda Accord EXL and a
2000 AccordEX V6 which we like.
However, my TL is a far better car in
appearance and ride. With the price
adjustment down in 1999 by $4k, I
decided to get the TL in 12/2000. I
just turned over 50,000 miles this
week so I am out of warranty but I
believe the quality is there to keep
the car for another 3 years. I have
enjoyed my TL and while it is paid
off, I do not plan to replace it any
time soon. I am not impressed with
the style of the new 2004 TL. I would
recommend the TL as a good use car buy
if the car has been well maintained
and the mileage is under 60,000 miles.


Best Features

Smooth refined engine, handling, heated seats, bose sound system with a CD along with the cassette, Xenon head lights, automatic climate control, nice leather seats, adjustable front arm rest, outside temperature guage,sport shift transmission is nice for hill decents but does not replace a manual


Worst Features

Auto on head lights, six way passager front seat vs. four way, heated exterior mirrors should be on a timer, 60/40 folding rear seat, better fuel mileage in city driving, use regular gas not premium, transmission problems are disappointing even with the extended warranty, improve front cup holders

Review

I used to LOVE my TL until I had 4
transmissions for the car before
40,000 miles. The last time it was in
the shop (8/2004) they told me come
pick it up it runs beautifully. Tried
to start it the next day and now the
starter is out. Don't buy TL.


Worst Features

Recall 2001 TL and give consumers refunds. Cannot with a clear conscience sell this car to a private party and no dealer would give me a decent price with known transmission problems.

Review

While Acuras in general do not rate
well with critics due to their
conservative styling, a quick sample of
user opinions will give you ample
reasons to purchase one. They are a
Honda product and are unmatched in
quality and reliability. This is my
second Acura over the last 12 years as
I previously owned a Vigor. In that
span I have had no mechanical problems
other than routine maintainence. It
also helps that I have had very
favorable experiences with my local
dealership. The service has matched
the quality of the vehicle.


Best Features

225 HP engine - very responsive, interior styling and controls, trunk space


Worst Features

Rear seating needs a little more leg room
