Great small (4 is comfortable) family car. by Looking To Upgrade on 02/27/2011. Trim: 2000 Acura 3.2TL, Owned 4 years.
Pros: I love the handling of Acura's. This car did what I needed and handles well. It handles well in the snow. If well maintained, this should last a while. I've owned this car since 2007 (97K miles- now has over 130k miles) and had no major problems, until...
Cons: For several months we've noticed that the SRS light was on (a seatbelt issue-covered under warranty) and that the front passenger side headlight went out intermittently. Apparently this is pretty common for the 2000 Acura TL. Common AND expensive to fix. Cost is over $1,000. Something to do with an inverter issue. As it was also necessary to change the timing belt (another $1,100), we've decided it's best to just trade it in for an Acura MDX!
Overall review: Overall, we've enjoyed this car and would have kept it if the repairs weren't so expensive. After all, it was almost paid off, but repairs aren't worth it. If you do buy this vehicle, make sure you check to see if the headlights have been repaired recently (inverter) and if it's close to 100K miles, make sure that someone has already done a timing belt change. It'll save you in the long run. I wish I had.
