Pros

Great power for the 3.2 V6. Stock it makes 225hp but with the full bolt on's that my dad has  it's at about 335hp give or take a few. Vtec is AMAZING omg the sound this car makes with the exhaust is so mouth watering I'm not even joking I think it's the nicest sounding direct-injected V6 I've ever heard. The car pulls great and can run with modern V6 mustangs, and even Infiniti G35s.

Cons

Shifts could be better but what r u gonna do it's a honda transmission.

Great Power And Looks And Its A Family Car To. — I love my dad's TL, I'm really gonna miss it when it's gone and it's my favorite 4-door car of all time. My favorite thing about this car is the sound. The low RPM growls are just amazing and when vtec kicks in it is so monstrous and really pulls hard. The transmission is kinda crappy I mean like it's a honda tranny so it's gonna be rough. It looks nice to for being a four door sports sedan. Overall, it's a great car.

Pros

Was a smooth ride and could get on it if need be.

Cons

All this car is an will ever be is an overpriced Honda...which means the parts are more expensive even though it says Honda on them.

Reliable But Not Worth It. — I liked how the car drove like a Cadillac and was smooth with pretty good pick up from 0-60 and in lengthy drives the car was nice in the higher speeds and also was good on gas mileage on the highway. I will never purchase another Acura as long as i live being is they are a glorified Honda and over priced by far. I'd rather buy a Honda Accord which looks just as nice and is way cheaper in every aspect.

War Horse — Grand old lady, but showing her age. This is the best car I have ever owned. Dealer installed new transmission at 98,000 miles due to manufacturing defect, so no complaints. Engine is still strong, but body and mechanicals are wearing out.

Pros

217,000 miles to date with original engine and transmission w least maintenance issues.

Cons

warping front brake rotors are annoying in hot temps. Just replace them w high end  DBA drilled/slotted rotors & only organic front pads.

I'd Buy Another Acura Tl ,infinity Or Lexus ...high End Japanese Cars. — As mentioned above with 10-30 engine , Honda ATF only, oil change and fuel injector cleaner every 5000 miles I already have this much mileage and still running very well besides the usual maintenance of brake pads and tires. The Acura name keeps high its class of technology & reliability at a great price. I use 91 octane gas from shell, mobil or chevron only and add a few drips of wd-40 on the a/c compressor, alternator and power steering pump every 10, 000 miles to keep that running bearing lubed.

Pros

This car is very reliable, quick, comfortable.....  EVERYTHING.  You can't get a better vehicle.  
The maintenance is not crazy expensive and nothing major has broken on it since I've owned it for over 10 years now and I am a very aggressive driver!  (Except for transmission recall) After 240,000 and counting.....  It still hangs with the latest sports sedan, in performance, comfort and reliability.

Cons

Back seat leg room could be larger.  Transmission recall.  Nothing else.

Acura Is An Awesome Car! — There is nothing that I could say that would be negative about this car. I've driven it approximately 60 miles round trip to work, since owning it and it still feels and acts the way it did when I first got it. This car is absolutely phenomenal!! ACURA is the only way! American car manufacturers should consider enrolling in their school, cause their technology and reliability are still better.

Black On Black — I Love my car! I'm a huge HONDA fan, the cars are built well ,very economical and easy to find parts. Even though this is a 2000 model it has great features. I love the sun roof, black leather seats, huge trunk, automatic lights, wood panels... etc. Not to mention the fact that this car just wants to fly!
