Best car I've had in years

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


After having had a small sports car that was a lemon, I was determined, above all, to have a reliable car, but I didn't want to lose the fun of driving a responsive car and I also wanted something a bit larger and more comfortable. The Acura TLS has it all: never a moment's worry about reliablity, plus comfort and the pleasure of driving an easy-handling powerful car, and--to top it off--a great Bose sound system.

Best Features

Smooth handling Bose sound system Sound system controls on steering wheel Seat controls that let you adjust everything Mirror controls are easy Memory setting for seats Comfortable and attractive leather seats Non-garish look of sleek dashboard Heated seats

Worst Features

Manual transmission was unavailable, but I would have preferred that. I understand the newer models offer that. I dislike having to use premium gas. The gearshift knob has a big red S and looks cheap. (I replaced it.)
