It's really old and barely runs currently.

It sucks the transmission blew up on me the first week I owned it. The tire blew out last week and had to buy a new tire someone keyed it at a football game last year just to add on to how bad it is. The car hydrolocked 3 months ago from heavy rain and I got stuck on the interstate.

Acura is a very well made car.

I love the handling of my car. I have 2 kids and it is the perfect size for when I had a car seat in the back seat. The maintenance is relatively simple. The most important thing to keep problems away is to stay up to date on the oil changes. I love the interior of my car as well.

Vehicle is okay don't recommend.

The vehicle itself is nice but has a lot of issues such as with gas pedal, brakes and coolant system. But it is okay on gas and has lasted a while. I use it to get from point A to B. It has a sunroof and seat warmer installed. It has leather seats and AUX cord.

Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
01V166002
Summary:
The following vehicles were repaired with incorrect parts: model year (MY) 2002 Acura 3.2TL sedans with replacement buckles installed per recall 01V-166001; certain MY 2000 Acura 3.2TL vehicles with replacement buckles installed as product update repairs; and certain MY 2000-2002 Acura 3.2TL vehicles with replacement buckles installed as warranty or collision repairs. Repairs were made from March 9 through July 27, 2001. Some of the noncompliant buckles were mislabeled and redistributed to Acura dealers to be used as recall repair parts. Honda also determined that incorrect front seat belt buckle replacement parts were used for some product update repairs of 2000 Acura 3.2TL vehicles, and warranty or collision repairs of 2000-2002 3.2TL vehicles. These seat belt buckles might not comply with requirements of FMVSS No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies." In the event of a crash, the seat occupant may experience some difficulty in unfastening the belt after the crash.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the front seat belt buckles. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Aug. 20, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
