Looking To Drive For A Long Time To Come. — I have had this car since 2001 and has never really had any major problems with the car until about 2 years ago. And I believe it is only because it has about 330,000 miles. She still rides like the first day I purchased her. Hope to get another 100,000 miles out of her... :)

Over All I Would Recommend It To Someone — Good car, had it for a while and haven't had many problems. Performance is good over all could have a little bit better acceleration but other than that no problems with the car. Build quality is good for a '99. Really like this car over all

It's Your Average Everyday 4 Door Sedan Enough Said. — It's your average everyday 4 door Sedan enough said. Though I have modified the car to handle and brake better (new struts n springs and wide wheel and tire combo). But this car being a Honda is reliable and cost little to maintain.

Pros

Reliable, comfortable, powerful.

Cons

Not much - maybe some miscellaneous features that I never used and then sort of forgot about - TCS control. We did have to have breaks done several times. I'm sure that has smething to do with how I drive, but it was more often than other cars I've had.

If You're A Car Keeper, The Acura Tl Is A Huge Value! — I bought this car new in 1999 and it has over 200,000 miles on it now. Last year I bought a new 2012 TL - that's how much I loved the TL - and still kept the old one as our spare. I drive a lot for work, and this car has always been comfortable and reliable. I kept up on regular service and this car has responded well. I feel like I could get another 100k out of it. It's a work horse. * Update June 2013: just finally had to have the original radiator replaced.

Very Nice, Competent Car — I had the car for 11.5 years. Had no major problems. Still powerful and smooth at 185K miles. The car has a right balance between luxury, power, sporty handling and smooth comfortable ride. Loved the car. I think I could've kept the car for another 100K miles without too much trouble.

Pros

I bought the car used from a co worker in 2005.  It had 103000 miles and was in excellent shape, a one car owner,  Great power, gas mileage and smooth ride.

Cons

When things go wrong, and they will with a 12 year old auto with over 200000 miles, it becomes what will break next and how much before it's over.

I'm Ready To Graduate To A Rl — After almost 6 years and 100000 miles, the end is near. Don't get me wrong, this Acura Tl is the best car I have ever owned. With 50 + years behind the wheel I want more of the Honda pie as it were. My goal is a Rl 2002-2004 in the near future.

Very Nice Car To Drive — Very good car. Handles great, good on gas, not to many mechanical issues. Nasty engine,it has awsome acceleration!Had it at over 100 mph in third gear!!! Very fun to drive it! Adding a transmission cooler brings the temp of the tranny down for more aggressive driving

Cons

no reasons to avoid this car

A Great Car If You Have To Spend Along Time On The Road — the acceleration os steller, braking is average, the build quality is amazing with a few rattles. gas milage is ok could be better, the maitnenence is minimal but expansive if you dont take it to the most expensive mechanic. the car is very fun to drive.
