2002 Acura TL 3.2 Type-S 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


I bought my TL with 38k pre-certified from a dealership. It has been reliable, comfortable, and economical, plus good performance. The original Michelin tires are junk (bought Bridgestone Turanzas) and the foglights are an invitation for rocks. My vehicle is black and has a little chipping on the roof that the dealership alledges is from sap. There are no other paint defects. The transmission has been fine, but it does shift with force into second gear when driving slowly. I don't know if this is because the car has so much torque or a tranny problem. Either way, it is covered to 100k... and it will be traded in before then. The seats could be deeper. But it is fast and reliable.

Best Features

Mileage (30+ hwy), Performance, Reliability, Interior Refinement, Sharp Exterior

Worst Features

Deeper Bucket Seats, Illuminated Buttons on Steering Wheel, Wider Tires (should have 225s instead of 215s)
