    Great Stop Light Sleeper. — The trani issues are vin number specific. Get the right car and you have a ride that cruises at 85-90mph and 2250-2500 rpm. If it had a super charger, then I would drive it into the ground. Only other wish would be SH AWD and a refrigerated bourbon disperser, both items not offered on the 2003 tl s.

    Pros: Tip tronic trani allows for fun and control. Smooth and powerful. Great used car for less than I could buy an accord, maxima, or G35.

    Cons: Little heavy, but it is sport/luxury. needs 18" rims.

    2003 3.2 Tl-p — I think this car is okay but, rattles, squeaks and risk of tranny failure make me worried about owning it. This car has killer looks pretty good performance and a solid engine. So far I have owned the car for 6 years and 50k miles had no problems other than rattles.

    Pros: killer looks, interior design, quality engine, bad weather handling

    Cons: rattles, predisposed risk for tranny failure

    Nice Suped Up Honda — It is nothing more than a really nice accord with a bigger engine. a nice package for the money but not a world class car at all, can't come close to a german car for fit, finish, handling...very tinny, plastic bumpers fell off twice. tranny went at 30K a/c went at 25K, plastic inside is cheap.

    Pros: engine, price, price, price

    Cons: cheap materials in and out, horrible service dept's

    Good Solid Product — Pleased with all aspects of the TL except perhaps the transmission. Ours went out at 66K, while out of warranty ACURA stepped up and paid for it. They initially offered only 50% however after I asked some "hard questions" about the associated recall for transmission cooling they relented and paid it all, some $5500 or so. Aside from the transmission we have had no issues with this vehicle.

    Great, Comfortable, Fast Car — I liked the feel of the car, the suspension was soft and ride quality was good. Wasn't a fan that it was a front wheel drive car but it handled nicely in the rain. The interior learther was soft and very comfortable. I'm a tall person and there was plenty of room in the rear seats.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great amount of horsepower and great ride quality

    Cons: Front wheel drive, should have gotten the S model.
