Acura TL-S disappoints by Jenny San Diego on 03/25/2010. Trim: 2003 Acura TL Type-S w/ Navigation System, Owned 6 years.
Pros: Performance and handling.
Cons: Prior to purchasing the TL-S I owned an Acura Legend for over 12 years. I had no major problems with the Legend, and it aged beautifully. The TL-S has had MAJOR problems - new steering column, two (2) Boze stereos, motor mounts, TWO (2) TRANSMISSIONS (35K repl covered under warranty, but dealer refused to cover 2nd repl at 75K miles), experiencing recent problem with suspension.
Overall review: I will never purchase an Acura again! Not only am I disappointed by the quality of the car, but the dealership did me no favors.

Satisfied by Jeff (DC) on 04/08/2003. Trim: 2003 Acura TL Type S, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Performance and comfort.
Cons: Poor turning radius. Also, the manufacture highly reconmends using at least 91 octane gasoline - which at most pumps is 93. With the fuel costs today this is a big deal - it cost about $27 for a full tank!!!!
Overall review: Great car - good car for the money. The Type S is the way to go.

TLS Acura by Dan on 10/17/2010. Trim: 2003 Acura TL Type-S w/ Navigation System, Owned 7 years.
Pros: Looks good runs good and fast.
Cons: Transmission just went out at 58000 miles. Low miles and lite duty not run hard. Slips and grabs when changing gears. Dealer only paid 40% of repair. Good engine but the Trans is bad.
Overall review: Acura should have better quality.

215,000km and counting...no problem! by Al on 09/12/2009. Trim: 2003 Acura TL 3.2TL, Owned 6 years.
Pros: Pros: - Acceleration - Ride - Seat Comfort - Quiet Interior - Highway Fuel Economy (28mpg) - BOSE Sound System
Cons: Cons: - Large Size and Heavy Weight - City Fuel Economy (18mpg) - No rear head-rests
Overall review: I have had this car for 6 years with 215,000KM and had regular oil , brakes and tires chanegs. The car looks, runs and feels still new. My friends can't bellieve the car has done 200,000km (125k miles). the paint still shines and the leather is in good shape. Fuel economy is good in highway around 28mpg and poor in city ~19mpg. The biggest turn off for me in this car is the size. its way too big and acura has failed to utilize the large size of the vehicle. the rear seat room is average and has very little trunk space. Aside from that this car is a blast to drive. The 220hp V6 gives lots of power and the 5 speed AT with tiptronic is nifty. Material used for interior are top notch. The leather is flaw-less and the woodtrim adds a nice effect. The heated memory seats are very comfy. It also has rear air-conditioning for rear passenger comfort but they forgot to add headrest for the rear somehow?! All in all the 3.2 TL has performance, reliability and quality material.
