2004 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

After a test drive in 04 TL,I was
fortunite enough to convince my son-in-
law to assume the remaining two years
of my "03 BMW 330xi lease. TL is FAR
SUPERIOR to 330 in almost every
category..for $12,000. less!!
Horsepower, torque, braking, styling,
interior, comfort,roominess, and
especially State of the art content
like Bluetooth, XM satellite radio,etc.


Best Features

270 hp provides plenty of punch. Bluetooth (hands free phone system] is GREAT. Commercial free satelite radio is[to my suprise] also great.


Worst Features

remote engine start would be a welcome feature. fold down rear seats would offer more storage .

2004 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I just purchased my 2004 TL this
afternoon. It's my second, my first
being a 2000 which we kept. The TL
still rates as a great value even if
they have raised the price a bit. The
fuel economy is excellent considering
the engine makes 270 hp but the
premium fuel requirement is
unfortunate given the current prices.
This version is much improved over the
last generation. I think Acura has
really put some distance between the
TL and the Lexus ES 330. But they
still won't let me take control of the
first to second shift with the
automatic transmission. That detracts
from the fun a bit.


Best Features

It's a great total package. Does everything well. No real flaws, like the Accord only super-sized. I have to admit that I like the blue lighting in the gauges.


Worst Features

RWD or AWD. Give me the first to second shift with the automatic transmission. Extend the rear a bit more. It's cut off too abruptly.

2004 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Having had BMWs and Acuras for the past
30 years, I can assert this is one of
my favorite two of all time. It is far
far superior to my 2001 3.2TL and much
more responsive on mountain curves than
my previous 3.5RL. I love it!!


Best Features

speed and handling on mountain curves. In 25 mile hour zone, 45 is no problem.


Worst Features

flat exterior area below trunk attracts dirt and is unsightly. Glove box could be larger.

Review

This car is a dream to drive. Can't
beat the value this car offers, and it
should hold up well if Acura's past
performance is any indicator. I drove
and researched a lot of cars in this
class, and I don't think you can beat
the TL for the money. NICE


Best Features

NAVI is unbelievable, XM Radio, soundsystem, bluetooth, the cool blue lights inside, etc etc etc


Worst Features

The brake light seems to light up the entire back window red, which makes it difficult to see when backing up...rear headrests should be a bit lower to allow for better rear vision.
