2003 Acura TL 3.2 Type-S 3.2 Type-S 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The only downside to this car is that
it's too perfect. I've only owned Fords
before. I haven't met any Acura
mechanics yet.


Best Features

Engine, transmission (manumatic), handling.


Worst Features

Navi could be more intuitive (it should be able to "learn"). Seats could adjust higher without raising the front of the seat so high. 260 horsepower is a lot... but I would like about 50 more.

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


Review

Replaced a '98 BMW 528 with a new TL-
Type S and looked at Lexus, and
Infiniti. Couldn't find anything
comparable that offered similar
performance, value and reliability.
German cars have the edge with
suspension, braking and A/C, but didn't
receive the benefits associated with
the maintenance costs.


Best Features

260 horses, lot's of giddyup.


Worst Features

power door lock switch and better A/C.

Review

This is my 5th Acura. My TL Type S is
by far the best car that Acura has come
out with. I average 27-28 mpg. hwy.
This car handles extemely well and is
very quick!!! A great commuter car.


Best Features

260 horse power engine is very responsive. Handling is a real plus too.


Worst Features

Needs a better sounding radio.
