Acura 3.2 TL just keeps getting better!!!!!
Source: MSN Autos

...Nice style. Fun to drive. navi is easy to understand too. Like that the windows can be rolled up after car is off and keys out. I get lots of complements. I prefer that the seats are not all leather, only the seat part is. great idea, i would rather have the durability of vinyl on the other parts of the seat that allow for less wear and tear. Cons: The only grip i would have is that the climate control gets too cold on the drivers side, I have to play with it alot to get it comfortable. No probs with the tranny so far, knock on wood. :O) Overall: A great car for a awesome price, reliable...

Better than BMW 3 series, but not as good as TL or G35
Source: MSN Autos

...Overall: I am really disapointed that the 2005 model didn't offer any real improvements over the 2004 model (e.g., more horse power and improvements to interior styling). For same price, the 2005 Infiniti G35 will have 280 hp with optional AWD. The 2004 Acura TL with a 5 speed automatic and Nav System is a still better value. The TL has more horse power, more features, better interior styling, and is about 8k less than the CTS Luxury Sport Model. To make a sale, all Cadillac had to do was make some very minor interior improvements and I would have bought this car. I would have lived with the...

Acura TL : Best of both worlds

...Pros: best of both worlds in regard to comfort and sportiness Cons: could be alittle quieter on freeway Overall: awesome...

Highly Recommended
Source: MSN Autos

...Cons: Cons: Could use more braking and less body roll, but I'm picky. Also, more interior room would have been nice, at least for 6'2" and 220 lbs. Overall: The '01 TL will, for a long time, be a good buy for anyone in the pre-owned market. The prices on the certified cars is understandably higher, but I recommend splurging in this case. Helps ensure that you won't get a car that was abused. When looking at the ratings I assigned, understand that I test-drove an '05 TL just this weekend, and MAN it was nice. So maybe I'm being unfairly harsh on my '01! I would gladly recommend this car to my...

Acura at its best
Source: MSN Autos

...Purchased back in May 2004, my experience with the car has been excellent. The styling is still as striking as the first day I saw the car on the dealer's lot. I guess I could have gotten the 6MT, but the 5AT does a better job of shifting than I can. Highway cruising is made effortless by the well-mannered ride and the 270HP 3.2L V6. I can't begin to count the number of times where my TL reached speeds well above the posted limit. For an engine this powerful, the highway fuel economy of the TL is an unexpected surprise (avg 30 MPG @ 70-75 MPH). The interior still looks fantastic after 20K...

CL type S: After 3 years, still a great value
Source: MSN Autos

...I went out testing the new 2005 Acura TLs and Infinity G35. The TL has almost the exact same acceleration, but does not handle as well as my older Type S. Although the TL seats are good (I like supportive seats for long drives), the CL seats are much better—they wrap around you and give good lumbar support. Ive rented a lot of cars, and only Volvo makes better seats. The sound system is excellent in both CL and TL. The G35 seats and interior were not of the same caliber. Ive driven the BMWs and although they handle better, they don’t have the power, or the reliability (check Consumer’s...

acura tl
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: performance, attention to detail Cons: off-the-lot power steering problems resulted in 4 dealer visits to get resolved.
trouble was caused by defective steering box. running the car back and forth to the dealership 4 times to get the problem fixed is unacceptable.
a new car of this caliber should not have such quality issues. Overall: overall - a nice car...

A good car
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: The tl is fun to drive and looks even better with acura,s body kit and rear wing.The nav is easy to use.
Cons: Needs better brakes and my car needed a tranny and new injectors.I have also needed two moter mounts.
Overall: I would buy another acura product.Because i do not think american cars are that good...

#9
Standed too many times
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: Sharp Looking Cons: The auto has had rattles that I have been unable to get rid of in the 5 years I have owned it.
The worst thing is the low profile tires. I have had four sets of tires of tire which is ok but I have had flat tire and blow outs on at leat five occasions which have left me stranded.
I would advise a purcaser to avoid the Acura TL. Overall: I would never buy another Acura...
