    Awesome Possum — I've driven a couple of these and each time I think I like it more. Great sound system, great ride, sufficient power, good quality, comfortable, good looking.

    Pros: Acura resale value. Drives great. Pretty car.

    Cons: front wheel drive. I don't have one.

    I Like My Acura — This car sounds great, looks good, and handles really well for a car just under $40k. The heated seats, nav system, and voice command offer the luxurious feel while the V6 will get you to around 155 mph.

    True Blue (strong Engine) — She never let's me down. Always has me up to highway speeds anytime I want it. She is the true work horse of the family. Stop and go, hot & fast highway miles, main driver thinks cars' must have accelerator or/and brake on at the same time.

    Pros: Dependable, great performance and nice feel.

    Cons: Eats tires!!!

    Nice Car — It's a nice looking car, but it needs tires every year. I have brought a total of 4 sets of tire since I had the car.

    Pros: Nag system

    Cons: It needs a new set of tire every year

    One Fine Automobile!! — We were out one day scouting automobiles for my wife when I spotted the Acura TL. I loved this car the first moment I layed eyes on it. It was nicely redesigned for 2003 and it looks great! After I put my eyes back in my head, I entered the driver's seat. We took it for a spin and it handled like a nice sedan on steroids. This car has nice power and descent handling, but was whisper quiet and smooth as silk. The V6 power is more than adequate for my requirements and the mileage was good to. The interior was plush and refined with wooden (synthetic) panels flowing throughout the car. The soft leather was a nice addition and made the ride that much more comfortable. All of the dash and accessory knobs felt solid - not flimsy or hollow. We've had it for almost 2 years now and have not had one problem. It's been a great car and a joy to drive. I would recommend an Acura to anyone.

    Owner for 2 years, 8 months

    Miles Driven per Year:12,500

    Pros: Nice exterior/interior!  Good power and economy.

    Cons: Rather pricey!

    Very Satisfied. — Went to buy a Honda Accord and saw this next to it on the lot. Instantly fell in love with the style and design of the car. Great gas mileage with plenty of power for the average consumer. Honda like reliability with sports car like handling.

    Pros: Great power for a sedan! Very impressed with gas mileage. It handles really well in the snow.

    Cons: Leather wears out really fast. Little bit of torque steer but that's expected with so much power going to the front wheels. Little but of torque steer but handles well.

    Love It!! Look No Further — You can't go wrong with this car. Love it! Love it! Mine is 8 years old with 152000 miles and still running like a beauty! I've never had a car this long nor have I ever wanted to keep one for so long. I will cry when the day comes that I depart with this car, seriously. In 2004 acura had thought so so many modern technologies it was amazing. Now others have followed suit. I wish the new one had better gas mileage. I do city and highway with traffic and I average about 21 miles per gallon. I also use gas cleaner for cars with 75+ miles stp and it seems to keep gas mileage at 21 mpg. If I don't use, then I get about 19. You can't leave the car off the the radio-nav on. Within 4 minutes you will drain they battery since there's so many things going on. Really love this car. Considering getting another new acura tl, just wish it had better gas mileage.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Love it! No major problems with this car. I'm looking st getting another. My favorite car so far and I'm a hard person to please. Love the navigation system too!

    Cons: Can't turn easily and soft leather (fragile) other than that, can't complain about anything else.....seriously!
