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!

Good Car, Fun To Drive, Lots Of Space, And Looks Great — - Good on gas. - Car is like a tank (build quality) - Has a good amount of power for the size of car. - Only thing that is a downside, the transmission is not as its best. Had to replace my tranny, but has warranty on it so it was free. - Overall I would buy this car again, but the Type S model. (more horsepower and performance) 142k miles and it still runs like a champ.

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.

MAJOR TRANSMISSION ISSUES

Good Car. — Good performance better than most cars in its class. Typical Honda reliability (or lack there of in my case). Needed to rebuild transmission. Doesn't stand out but if you observe it for a bit it is a good looking car. Expensive replacement parts. Good gas mileage, I've averaged 25 mpg. It's a car you'll want to push hard once in a while.
