 — A great car - V6 engine puts out about 230 hp and can really get going using auto-stick. The suspension is good for a sedan, not stiff enough for really taking the turns, but provides a smooth ride an... Read More

2002 Acura TL

2002 marked the introduction of the powerful new Type S trim for the Acura TL midsize sedan.  The 3.2 L, 260 hp V6 engine represents a significant upgrade on the 3.2 L, 225 hp V6 3.2 TL trims.  The '02 TL has 4 doors, seats 5, and comes in 4 trims: 3.2 TL, 3.2 TL with navigation, Type S, and Type S with navigation.

As for gas mileage, expect to get 19 mpg in the city and 29 on the highway.  While the TL trims don't offer the stability control that the Type S has, all 4 trims come with a long list of standard equipment, including sunroof, power/leather seats, ABS brakes, and traction control.  Type S trims get going in a relative hurry, reaching 60 mph in 6.65 seconds.

Overall, drivers like the extra juice in the Type S engines and the general value that the 2002 Acura TL offers.  On the other hand, reviewers wouldn't mind a little extra attention to comfort, style, and luxury.  It goes without saying, but we'll say it anyway: for more style and substance in your TL, get a model from '04 or later.
