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


I purchased my 2003 Acura TL Type S used with 49,000 miles in January of 2008. It WAS a great vehicle until the odometer hit 66,000 miles; that's when the transmission failed and had to be replaced. The cost of the replacement was $3,500. I purchased this vehicle based off of Acura's claim of producing quality and reliable products. My Acura has not exhibited any of these claims. I should have listened to the consumer reviews I read while researching this vehicle. There was an alarming number of reviews warning of transmission replacements. Will not buy another Acura again.

Best Features

Vtech engine; fuel economy; Bose Stereo; lower profile than newer TL's.

Worst Features

Start with building a quality product and extend the extended warranty for the transmission to ALL 2003 TL's.
