2003 Acura TL Sedan 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car was built without any flaws.
A super car for freeway ride. Very
quiet and comfortable, handles superbly
in mountains and winding roads, with
all of the comfort features to enjoy.


Best Features

The manual sport shifting makes the TL great on the curves and hills. The memory mirror and seat adjustments and fine sound system are added niceties.


Worst Features

I would prefer to have zone heat and A/C controls.

2003 Acura TL Sedan 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My Acura wasn't even my first choice when I
was looking for a new car. It kept showing up
in the comparisons with the cars I was
considering, though, and was worth a test
drive. This car is great. The transmission
shifts almost imperceptably, and even though
it isn't the Type S, it still has push-you-into-
your-seat acceleration. The build quality is
evident all over.

This was my first car that didn't come from the
big three in over 30 years of car ownership. I
got a price lower than the Edmund's TMV, and
almost the entire transaction was handled via
email.


Best Features

Transmission, acceleration, really fine stereo system. Having the power seats automatically adjust is a real boon. My wife is just over 5ft. tall, and I'm a 6-footer, so this feature gets a lot of use.


Worst Features

A little less plastic, please, and add a coin holder somewhere handy.

Review

I love my 3.2TL. I am a Stay-at-home
Mom with 1 child and feel like I am not
compromising the Sport feel with too
much practicality. Very peppy drive.
Great Luxury vehicle for the $$.


Best Features

Tons of luxury features are standard- leather, xenon lights, sunroof, memory seats, etc.


Worst Features

None.

Review

This car is a great value. The ride is
smoothe, the pick up is superb, and it
feels very luxurious to drive.
Steering is easy and the comfortability
of the seats and ride is a big plus.


Best Features

I like the automatic seats; drivers positions for two drivers for side mirrors and seats. The fog lights make night driving much easier. The sound system is excellent, and the seats are very comfortable. A comfortable ride comparitive to much more expensive cars.


Worst Features

Gas mileage could be improved as the TL takes premium gas and is expensive to run.

2003 Acura TL Sedan 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I always wanted to buy a GS300, but
this car beats the Lexus by all
measurable parameters and is about 15K
cheaper. It's a perfect family sedan
that combines utility with reasonable
amount fun to drive. 100% recommended.


Best Features

Engine and transmission performance, Bose audio w/CD changer,huge trunk, outstanding reliability and great customer support (not that you'll need much of that)


Worst Features

The overall length could be a little shorter.
