    2002 Acura TL

    My TL Type S, S is for Super!

    Pros: Performance

    Cons: That it ages, I wish it could stay like-new!

    I am a car guy and auto tech and have owned and driven many autos over the 40 plus years of driving. My TL was purchased used with 12K miles and now just turned 108K miles. I have been totally impressed with the build quality, the performance and overall road worthiness of this car, so much so that when I test drive a new car, my TL is the bench mark. You know what, I have not found a new car that satisfies me the in the manner this TL does! I guess that says alot of a seven year old car.

    2002 Acura TL - Type S

    Pros: gas mileage

    Cons: quality

    Advice: don't buy this vehicle

    I am on my 4th transmission in less than 50,000 miles. Honda has major problem with there transmissions, but you never hear about. So far over $15,000 in warranty work. Worse car I have ever owned.

    Advice: Very good car for the value

    Superb Vehicle, very good performance. I am very happy with the car. The navigation system is the best. The only thing I dont like in this car is the brakes. They dont stop when u need them to. My car is 2 yr old and i have to change the brakes already. I love the car.

    2002 Acura TL - Type S

    Pros: Heated Leather Seats

    Cons: Transmission

    Advice: Keep Looking

    The test drive on this car was great until I got it home.I've had to replace all four tires within the year. I had to have my transmission replaces at 24,000mi. I've also had my inside light out for 6months and whenever I call the dealership I'm told that the part is still on backorder.
