"I have had this car for 3 years and it's a great car it's gotten me through 2 accidents without a scratch. She drives great and I am sure she will last much longer. I haven't had a problem yet!(knock on wood)"

"The only complaints I have is that this model year there was a problem with the transmission. I went through 2 transmissions....after one year, and then after about 5 years. Also, it began to rust in 2 of the wheel wells. I've owned many Hondas and this is the first one that rusted. I do not live near a beach where salt would cause this to happen, and I am meticulous about this car. Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed this car and wish I could afford a new one."

"Owned a 12 yr-old Honda Accord. Transmission went out around 200k. My 12-yr old Acura TL is experiencing transmission problems as well at 180k. Poorly designed engine. The interior lasts a long time. Paint job is fine. Smooth ride, but won't pass smog with the check engine light on."

"I bought my TL with 112k miles and it now has 147k. She drive like a new one; cornering, braking, accelerating, ect... I just bought a full set of performance tires and she corners as if on rails. I did not know about the hid headlights, so I got sticker shock when I had to drop $380 to replace the lens, ballast and bulb. The original radio works perfectly but I replaced it with one that has the features I wanted (Bluetooth, hands free, Iphone integration ). I use Mobil one synthetic and keep up the maintenance. As a result, she give me 19 city / 31 hwy. Her mpg averages higher than many new cars. I love my TL."

2002 Acura TL Type-S

"While my wife drives it back and forth to work, I bought the Type-S for me. It's a high-end Honda. Reliability is great. Never an issue that ever leaves me stranded, or dumping lots of cash into. Many reports of tranny problems, this car shows no signs of any problems at 100k. The ride is excellent. Soft when you want it on long trips on the interstate highways, yet corners relatively flat when you're racing down the twisty roads. It's really the best of both worlds. This car is a real sleeper. With the added ponies in the Type-S pkg., she gets up and goes pretty well. Ask the teenager in a new challenger who pulled along side of me. It was a lot closer than he ever expected, judging by his "thumb's-up" after running with him. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE CAR."
