Top Notch — I've had mine for 8 years. I still think it looks sharp. Repairs have been minimal. People are amazed it's 13 years old. Not a lot of rear leg room but my kids have tiny legs (for now) The End.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

Performance, Reliability, Value

Cons

Off-the-line acceleration (electronic shift transmission), Fuel economy (23-25 mpg on premium)

1997 Acura 3.2 Tl Review (first Generation) — Performance is overall good: excellent high speed breaking and cornering, good acceleration, and melodic exhaust note. Build quality meets the high expectations one would expect from Honda/Acura. Appearance of the styling of the car is somewhat conservative, but has sporty features. Cost of ownership is a little spendy (premium fuel demanded and Acura certified parts recommended), but reliability makes up for much of the price (car is now 11 years old!). Fun to Drive!

Pros

Perfect commuter, can be sporty when provoked

Cons

Thirsty, engine feels like it's working too hard due to 4-speed auto

25

Only Regret Is That It's Not A Hatchback... That's The Only One — A bit vanilla, but otherwise she's been bulletproof. Comfy, somewhat sporty, excellent if thirsty engine. What would make for exponential improvement though is another gear in the tranny, 4 doesn't cut it for the 2.5L engine, especially when driving in the city
