    Top Notch — I've had mine for 8 years. I still think it looks sharp. Repairs have been minimal. People are amazed it's 13 years old. Not a lot of rear leg room but my kids have tiny legs (for now) The End.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Long term low cost of ownership - With style

    Cons: Rear leg room - Weak car horn

    Only Regret Is That It's Not A Hatchback... That's The Only One — A bit vanilla, but otherwise she's been bulletproof. Comfy, somewhat sporty, excellent if thirsty engine. What would make for exponential improvement though is another gear in the tranny, 4 doesn't cut it for the 2.5L engine, especially when driving in the city

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Perfect commuter, can be sporty when provoked

    Cons: Thirsty, engine feels like it's working too hard due to 4-speed auto

    1997 Acura 3.2 Tl Review (first Generation) — Performance is overall good: excellent high speed breaking and cornering, good acceleration, and melodic exhaust note. Build quality meets the high expectations one would expect from Honda/Acura. Appearance of the styling of the car is somewhat conservative, but has sporty features. Cost of ownership is a little spendy (premium fuel demanded and Acura certified parts recommended), but reliability makes up for much of the price (car is now 11 years old!). Fun to Drive!

    Pros: Performance, Reliability, Value

    Cons: Off-the-line acceleration (electronic shift transmission), Fuel economy (23-25 mpg on premium)
