2001 Acura TL

Aside from a couple minor additions, the 2001 Acura TL remains unchanged from the previous model year.  This model comes in two trims: the 3.2 TL and 3.2 TL with navigation.  Both trims use a 3.2 L, 225 hp V6 engine with 5 speed automatic transmission.  

As for fuel consumption, expect to get 19 mpg in the city and 29 on the highway.  The 2001 TL has 4 doors, seats 5, and offers standard sunroof, air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power/leather seats, cassette player, cd player, ABS brakes, and traction control.  

Overall, drivers like the capable engine and relatively low price.  Others might say the 'TL' in the 2001 Acura TL stands for too little.  They would appreciate better interior materials and handling.  In any event, if you need more power from your TL, look for a model from 2002 or later.
