"I purchased my Acura used in 2005 it had 101,000 miles. I had a regular mechanic work on my car and he destoyed my engine at 250,000 miles. I replaced that engine with a used engine and I only allow certified Acura or Honda mechanics work on my car. It is nine years later and I would not trade or give up my Acura for anything. I am going to keep it forever. It now has approx. 670,000 miles. I have went through numerous amounts of tires and brakes and three transmissions. The transmission has quit like clokwork around 225,000 miles. Overall I am very happy I purchased this car."

"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."
