Excellent overall change
By dealerbasher on
Vehicle2003 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewI looked at the previews for 2004 TL
and disliked its overwrought styling.
The present model is elegant and
classy. The TL is well-designed for
long trips, the interior is superb, the
handling is precise. Love the step-
tronic tranny, TL accelerates quickly
with a base engine; I found no need for
type-S. A bargain compared to tiny BMW-
3, or 530, Benz C320, or Inf. I35.
Lexus ES300 looks too much like a Camry
and costs 36K+ with leather. TL is
ultimately the best all-around choice.
I prefer its FWD configuration because
it does much better in CO winters than
RWD found in 2 competing sedans.
Best FeaturesStep-tronic transmission (great passing time), luxurious interior, elegant styling (newer models have prominent grills), comfortable pwr front seats. Cornering and handling, good Mich tires, safety. Memory system for 2 drivers/2 keyfobs. Great Bose stereo with 6CD indash changer.
Worst FeaturesNothing as of today. The 1999 transmission issues have been fixed for 2003.
