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


Review

We've had the car for about a year and
love it. It rides smoothly, and the
acceleration is great. We were looking
at Lexus, BMW, and Audi, but you can't
beat the car for the price and
performance. Interior is great and my
wife loves the heated seats...


Best Features

acceleration, heated seats, and stylish look


Worst Features

blind spot inbetween front and side windows

Very well built, smooth & highly
refined auto. Smooth shifting
transmission, peppy engine but could be
more powerful like in the S type or
the '04's.

Overall refinement, comfortable ride, smooth shiftable tranny

Review

very strong engine, power everything
for a reasonable price, can't beat it.
very comfy and the car looks great too,
I think it looks even better then the
new 04 TL. Love all the standard
features come with the car.


Best Features

Love the HID, memory seat, heated seats and mirrors, auto-dim rearview mirror, and VTEC engine.


Worst Features

I wish it had better gas mileage. I've been getting 19 mpg.

Review

This is my second Acura, my first was
an Integra and I loved it. So when it
was time to buy a new car I went back
to Acura dealer. This car is almost
perfect. It has style, is quiet and fun
to drive. My only negative is the back
seat, it is hard to strap in a booster
seat for an older child. The seatbelt
locks are hard to locate when locking
them in. Maybe it would be better if
they were located on the outside rather
then the center.


Best Features

This car has alot of extras, all of them good. I especially like the seat warmers in the cold weather.


Worst Features

Seat belt locks location in back seat. Roof line is a little low for a tall person.

Review

Convinced to trade new, 1.5 month old,
gorgeous '03 Maxima SE on new '03
Acura TL. Each day since purchase, (6
months ago) I've regretted purchasing
the '03 TL.
Maxima was much faster, thrill to
drive; loved engine, exterior,
interior (everything). Honestly don't
care for the Acura at all (engine,
interior, exterior). Acura rides
rough, and is sluggish relative to
Maxima. Sometimes bump head (only 6'0"
tall) when getting in (even with seat
at lowest point). Loved the last
Acura Legend, but '03 TL falls short.
No complaints about reliability, but I
plan to get a 2003 Maxima this year
(don't like look of 2004 Maxima).


Best Features

Chrome door handles - nice touch


Worst Features

Smoother ride, more stylish interior an exterior (particularly wheels, body and softer leather); more driver headroom; easier tilt steering wheel; better stereo. Use LED instead of LCD interior displays. include basic trip computer.
