Best car ever in all respects except
the ride and seats. The ride is a bit
harsh and the front seats are not
comfortable on a trip. Not enought
padding on the bottom and the side
bolsters are too close even for my
weight and size (175 lbs/6 feet)
Engine performance, good
torque,transmission, handling, Stero,
XM, DVD audio,quietness-no wind noise
even at 85 mph! Outstanding except the
ride & seats.
Acura put everything in one neat
package and at an affordable price. I
was looking for a 2 door car. I was not
crazy about the look of the CL (too
bland). I was hoping they made it more
sporty looking for 2004, only to find
out it was no longer being made. I
noticed the 2004 TL on the internet and
instantly fell for it. Not only did it
look good and was loaded for the price,
but it also came in a stick shift. I
did my research, compared it to BMW,
Infiniti, Lexus, etc, and decided I was
getting the most for my money along
with Acura reliability.
Power is unbelievable. Good looking,
classy, sporty. No options except for
navigation. Makes life so much easier.
A little jumpy on rough roads. Torque
steer noticeable. With current gas
prices maybe it can be engineered to
run OK on regular gas.
My overall experience with this
vehicle would be rated great if not
for one major flaw that Acura has
stated that they will not correct.
There is a severe front end vibration
when first driving the vehicle after
sitting all night that disappears
after about 5 minutes of driving.
Acura replaced the tires, but that did
not fix the problem. Was told by the
dealer to contact customer service who
has stated they will do nothing more
to try to correct the problem. So
much for Acura's supposedly superior
