My TL Type S, S is for Super!
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.
Pros: gas mileage
Advice: don't buy this vehicleI 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 valueSuperb 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.
Advice: Check out the bad reviews on CarReview and other TL and Odyssey forums!There have been numerous transmission failures on Acura and Honda vehicles that have the same automatic transmission currently being used on the 2000-2003 TL/CL! Read all the reviews on the Internet before buying a TL, CL, or Honda Odyssey!
