Pros

It had a navigation system, leather interior, cd player, and it also drove great.

Cons

Some guy ran a red light and hit my car and totaled it.

Great Car! If Only I Still Had It... — I loved almost everything about this car. The only thing that I did not like was that there was not a six 6 cd changer or a premium sound system. I wish that I still had the car because I love the way it felt when you drove it. It was a sedan, but it almost felt like driving a sports car.

Pros

Interior, Bose sound system, very comfortable

Cons

Transmission, Rear View Mirror

65

Good Car — Transmission is known for failures, but other than that, this car is great, it has almost everything you could want in the interior, although the rear view mirror is kinda funky, it looks good from the outside, bought it cheap and it almost seems like it should've cost more, accelerates great, probably hit 100 in less than half a mile or so, really fun car, gets 19 to 29 MPG and even though it wants premium, you can use regular

High Quality! — High quality car. From the time u open the door till u sit on the seat feel luxury. The seats are really comfortable, high build quality. Performance is fine too, as this is a 3.2 car. The suspension is well made with a soft, stable feel. Handling and braking also response well.Overall, a very solid and enjoyable car!

Pros

It's fast for a 6 cylinder

Cons

from 99-03 the TL was notorious for the transmission failure

25

I Would Recommend This Car To Anyone — Performance-- Quick acceleration, good braking, and takes corners very well Build Quality-- It needs repairs on the transmission because the 3rd gear clutch pack goes out very easily Appearance-- the car is very slick and is a all around nice looking car

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
