2004 Acura TLReview

Overall:

2004 was honestly one of the best years for semi-luxury to luxury car brands. I have recently owned a 2004 Audi A4 v6 6 speed and now a 2004 Acura TL v6 with 6 speed. and they have shot to the top of the list of Best cars I have ever owned and driven. Solid cars with incredible style and build quality. Seek out any of these pre-2010 models before they are all gone. Seems like the 2008-2009 recession really killed the quality of cars available.

My First Car — I like the speed. Nothing like Acura 4th gear. The sport shift is good for its year. This was one of Acura last great cars. The 2004 Acura TL styling really caught the eye of many people when it went on sale.

Pros: Luxury, Speed, Maintenance, Gas Milage,

Cons: FWD

Loved This Car! — i loved my acura tl. it was super reliable, very comfortable, and i loved taking it on long roadtrips. it had an awesome sound system in it. the only downside to this car was the fuel economy. freeway trips weren't so bad as i averaged 28mpg, but city driving gave me about 16mpg. overall though, awesome car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: comfortable, reliable, good sound system, awesome aesthetics

Cons: poor fuel economy

Awesome! — I love my car. It has been with me for 150,000 miles and I have had virtually no problems. Not one major repair to date, just regular maintenance. My headlights have both died, but I actually enjoyed replacing the old HIDs with the new ones! I know that isn't for everyone. By the way, the OEM headlights lasted waaaaaaay longer than they were supposed to. In short, great car!

Pros: Almost everything.

Cons: 2004 suffered from a dashboard defect where they cracked after several years. 2003 and before and the 2005 and later did not have this problem. Also, the door handle moldings tend to fall off. I don't know why Acura cannot design a good molding, but can engineer an incredible car. Fortunately, they're only $10, but they only last a year or so before they fall off.

Great Vehicle — This was a great car. The engine was smooth and powerful, but gave great gas mileage. The TL boasts classic styling which never dated and still turned heads when i drove it. The cabin was roomy and quiet. The manufacturing roots, Honda, explains the awesome reliability and value, Overall all we loved the car!

Pros: Awesome value. Great ride and handling. Good power and acceleration, Good gas mileage.

Cons: No audio aux imput.

Love It — I absolutely love driving the Acura TL! Handles corner amazingly. I love that feeling you get when you walk out of the grocery store and you're like "Yep, that's my Acura TL!" For a 2004 to have all the bells and whistles that cars are just now coming out with- I find that amazing! I have a '09 Acura RL and I will so miss my '04 TL, it has a lot more pick up and go than the RL.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very fun car to drive.  Very reliable.  Looks amazing

Cons: Does not handle slick roads well.  (May be due to the tires that were sold to me-the place was a rip off)

Much More Fun Than Four Doors Have A Right To Be. — This Acura TL has much more refined handling and raw acceleration than any of it's more recent models. While it is more practical than the sleeker models, it passes as a car for an adult, but still can come out to play.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I am an audio professional and I bought this car used for the Eliot Scheiner-designed dvd-a player.  I kept the car past 100,000 miles because of how it drives.

Cons: Racing brakes and tires are expensive to fix.

Sexy, Powerful, Sophisticated. — This car is a pleasure to drive, handles beautifully and feels powerful! I believe it is one of the most attractive vehicles on the road! The only downside would be that a powerful engine requires more gasoline than the more fuel efficient cars on the market.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive! Gorgeous aesthetics!

Cons: Some cars get 40 mpg, this one does not.
