"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!"

Pros: "Fun to drive!"

Cons: "Cassette deck instead of bluetooth audio"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I'm the original owner and after 10 years I can say I'd buy this car all over again. In 10 years and 200,000 miles, the only major repairs I had to do were to replace the A/C compressor, the clutch (yes I have a manual transmission), and a rear brake caliper. An almost one of a kind combination of exterior and interior colors, a stick, and navigation system make this car an extremely rare find and I still get comments on how great it looks. The navigation system tends to run slow the first time you use it after you start it up, but is an asset nonetheless. A lot of stuff that had to be done while the car was in warranty however, but Acura stepped up to the plate. I've done all my recommended maintenance and have used only synthetic oil. I'll bet I get another 100K miles out of it. Has a cassette deck. Didn't Acura get the memo that cassette decks were obsolete years before this car was made and that iPhone and Bluetooth audio connections were already well instilled in the world?"
