Overall:

Honda Quality, You Can't Go Wrong. — This car had great performance and handling for a front-wheel drive car. Whenever I stepped on the gas, there was no hesitation and it appeared to have limitless power. I never had to yearn for more acceleration. Everyone wanted to drive it.

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

Pros: Performance, handling, space, ride

Cons: Transmission problems

Buy It If You Dont Want A Honda Accord — Bucket seats are really comfortable. All you need to change is the oil & brakes & you're good to go. It is pretty expensive to maintain unless you got hook ups or covered under warranty. Just buy it & you won't regret it. Oh & they are pretty reasonable now a days

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

Pros: Scary fast

Cons: Will drain your pockets!!

If You Don't Mind Honda, They Did Right On This Car — It may be subtle in style, but this is such a beautiful touring car -- it rides extremely well on the freeway with plenty of power to cruise around. Bose stereo, power seats, sunroof, heated seats, preforated leather seating... a 7,000 rpm redline, what's not to like?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: a complete package for a guy who wants a little of everything for not a lot of everything

Cons: if you want to seem edgy or to cool

Buy New But Stay Away From Used — Handled beautifully but not well made - lost its 'tightness' after a year or so. Nice design but manufacturing quality found wanting. Good overall value form money when purchased new but unsure about used quality. Fun to drive though - lots of power

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: For its features, impressively inexpensive

Cons: Workmanship found wanting

The Best Car For The Price Tag... — The care is very driver oriented and gives you a thrill. Nothing compares to Japanese quality!!! Acuras have excellent build quality and their customer service is awesome. As far gas mileage is concerned, it gives me approx. 27miles/gallon... Not bad, I guess for a 3.2L V6.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Acceleration

Cons: Nothing

Ghfgnhm — Decent performance and look, Fwd and auto tranny are brutal though. Transmission has needed replacing, as per usual with these earlier model TL's. Gas mileage isn't great, but the power makes up for it i guess. Sound system sounds good, but damn you Bose for making only 2 OHM components!!!

Pros: Horsepower,  look, luxury interior, sound system if the head unit actually played cd's.

Cons: FWD, auto trans, turning radius, high km's.

I Love This Car!!! — Even though there was a recall because of transmissions issues for my model it was already taken care of by the time i bought it. Had it for almost 2 years now and still dives like the firt time i got in it. It will certainly be at the top of my list when i decide to go for the upgrade...

Pros: 6 cylinders but still great in mileage. about 26/mpg highway

Cons: It's considered a luxury car, therefore your insurance will be kinda high.
