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


Review

Vehicle is sound, comfortable,
pleasant to drive, not too sporty.
Great sound and navigation system.
Had to replace rear wheel bearing at
20,000 miles! All repairs under
excellent warranty. Some
discoloration in airbag cover NOT
handled well by dealership.


Best Features

Sound system. Good reserve power when you punch it.


Worst Features

Auto transmission tries to be too clever, downshifting on slowing down slopes, for example. Takes getting used to.

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


Review

After owning a Lexus, I find this Acura
is extremely compatable. Ride, handling
and maintanence...Perfect. I would
consider purchasing another Acura in
the future.


Best Features

Seats, look and comfort. Like the "even" proportion of the hood and deck. It's a sleek car, not a chopped off trunk.


Worst Features

Quieter ride.

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


Review

Bought used off-lease with 46k miles,
and love the car (w/nav). For the
price you get so many features, rock-
solid performance, interior "luxury,"
and a fun ride. Also got the GPS
which, despite being 3 years behind
the tech curve, still works like a
charm (and is updatable whenever Acura
releases the new DVD). Even with 46 k
miles this car handles like a dream,
the interior is still crisp and
working perfectly, and everything just
keeps humming. Highly recommended (I
was between this and the ES 300, which
has a much more luxurious interior,
but far fewer features, floatier ride,
and higher price).


Best Features

Nav, solid feel on highway, automanual, crisp controls and great layout, heated mirrors (trust me on this one) and seats, build quality, large side mirrors give commanding views.


Worst Features

Wipers and control stalks feel flimsy, auto lights, move the driver's-side sunroof controls. Less delay on DVD updates- a bit frustrating...

Review

The Acura TL is an excellent blend of
characteristics I was looking for.
GOod handling, acceleration, quiet
ride, good fuel economy, and
performance. It's stylish and ye not
pushy.


Best Features

Smooth ride.


Worst Features

the interior has some cheesy components. The dashboard is quite plain.

Review

This is a wonderful car. I have driven
it for nearly three years and have no
problems with the car. The service
department is the best I have ever had,
willing to have a loaner car available
for repairs. It is a comfortable car
with good gas mileage and no noticeable
wind noise.
