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


I 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 Features

Step-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 Features

Nothing as of today. The 1999 transmission issues have been fixed for 2003.
