"...Not that I should be driving in 50 years from now but still my grand-kids would probably still be able to drive it and not have any problems. My TL-S has gotten me through the worst blizzards, long road trips and most importantly makes me feel very safe. There's plenty of room in the trunk and back seats and I love the sound system. It's a great commuter especially when you need to hit the gas last second to get around some half-asleep fool in the fast lane. The 6cyl. V-Tec is a great motor and consistently gives amazing power even after 140k and having the Type-S does help with acceleration. The suspension is a bit soft but it's a cruiser not a racer. I love it!"

"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."
