"Ever since I bought my loaded Acura TL in 2004, complete with mud flaps, navig, spoiler, gold pkg and tech package...I have never, for one instant regretted it. In 2004, it was a new design year and even in 2014, 10 years later, it still looks stylish and not outdated in any way. It is gently used, < 48,000 mi...mostly in Florida...no scratches or dents and a beautiful Redondo red pearl color. The engine acts and sounds like new; with brand new Michelin tires, it has fabulous pick up, and handles like a dream. With the front wheel drive, it is fabulous in the snow. It is time for me to downsize to one car, and as I have another car only 2 years new, this one will be for sale. I am looking for full Kelly blue book value for my car...best offer dealership or private, get the car."

Best value around!

"I've always had faith in the Honda/Acura line, but this TL has proved to be the best value ever, and with the added luxuries has been comfortable and extremely enjoyable to drive. If I didn't need more room at this point I wouldn't even consider giving it up. The reliability is exceptional, as you'd expect, and it's never left me stranded."

Just detailed, a hobby of mine.

"I've been driving Hondas and Acura's for over 25 years. You cannot beat the value you get for your money! I am considering a TLX however Acura has moved into the same pricing structure as most manufactures, everything is an upgrade, I liked it when you had a choice of two types, with or without the Tech Package and everything else was standard. Acura is still a great car and a great value!"

"Bought CPO in 2007, only did oil changes, tires and brakes before the 100k stuff (timing belt, etc.) Amazingly trouble-free. This car was ahead of its time, fully loaded with Nav, integrated phone, satellite radio, etc. Great job Acura! Will be looking at another soon!"

"Bought my 04 TL used with 90K on it and have about 110K on it now.. runs amazing.. regular oil changes and new tires this past summer are all that I've had to do. Won't sell this car.. will drive it as long as I can."

"I bought my 04 Acura TL with 78k miles on it. I paid 12k cash and drove it to 233k miles without EVER fixing one thing! Just regular maintenance like tires, brakes and rotars. Best car I ever owned. Leather started to breakdown from the heat and humidity as soon as I moved to Florida. But the car had 200k miles already. This has been an amazing vehicle. Never broke down! Transmission issue at 233k miles so I had to get rid of. But I think I got my moneys worth! I will Always buy Acura!"
