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


I have been driving this car for over 100K miles now, and still love it. The performance is strong, handling is good, very comfortable and roomy, and super reliable as expected from a Honda/Acura. Of course, unfortunately, this year model has the transmission recall and I'm on my 3rd tranny now. Despite the tranny problem, I still love this car because it's one of the best all around performance sedans you can buy. This car is very fun to drive hard with Vtech rush to keep driver enthusiast smiling. Other than the tranny, I had no problem with anything else, just regular oil change is all it's needed.

Best Features

High performance engine, strong acceleration, comfortable ride, smooth and quiet transmission, well built, reliable, intuitive NAV, fully equipped, great Bose sound system, aged well, and best buy in its class.

Worst Features

Transmission should be fixed, need stickier tires, stock Michelin was terrible, telescoping steering wheels.
