2003 Acura Tl Stype Aspec — The Acura TL S type with the A spec package is a very high quality sports-luxury sedan. It is a beautiful car from the factory and does not need much performance enhancing. The car is fun to drive, smooth from a stand still all the way to 130mph without hestitation. The design features classic luxury class features and fit and trim is perfect. The Acura line was developed as the "precision" line from Honda, the innovative leader in automobile technology. Most do not know the "A" badge is actually a symbol of "calipers" reflecting precision. Overall the performace is extremely high, the build quality is outstanding, the appearance is lovely, and just a great purchase. Acura prides itself on high reliability and repairs are minimal, mainly requiring normal maintenance. The cost of ownership is well worth such a fine automobile and I look forward to purchasing the next TL-S in addition to keeping this one.

Pros: High performance, great build quality, excellent appearance, overall fun car to own.

Cons: The normal high end cost of high performance autos.

Best Bang For The Buck In 2003 — Really enjoy the car, though it is a bit noisy on other than smooth road surfaces. The acceleration and handling at quite nice for this size car. My only real complaint is that I'm on my 3rd Transmission, but all have been covered by Acura even though the warranty is over. The newer TL's are better in all aspects.

Pros: Sporty, Comfortable, Stylish, Resale Value

Cons: Transmission, Premium Gas Required, Road Noise

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.
