It's a reliable vehicle that runs great.

2002 Acura TL Base

Love the interior. Leather heated seats and a nice wood looking trim in the inside. Has a CD player (Although I wish the stock radio came with AUX output) Has a good amount of space for everyone who sits in it, front or back. Has nice Bose speakers. The mirror lights don't work, and the volume dial doesn't work well. It has radio controls on the steering wheel which is nice, but sometimes that takes a minute to work. It runs just fine, definitely gets me where I need to go. The maintenance required light is on right now and I'm not sure what needs to be done. When I turn the AC on, water will pool up under my car from it dripping out.

Quick yet subtle, the Acura TL 3.2L is like a panther. Great looks, Great power.

2002 Acura TL Base

The Acura Tl 2002 3.2L is a well rounded automobile. It handles really well and they are mechanically sound for the most part. However, the Acura also has its faults, such as the prices for the replacement parts. Some of the major components are valued higher than the car is worth itself! Although my Acura does have 300,000 miles on the original motor and transmission, so maybe you pay for the quality of the parts. Overall it has been a great car for me, and I hope it gets another 300,000 with me behind the wheel..

Gold 2002 Vintage Acura TL, with heated seats,A/C, spectacular radio system

2002 Acura TL Base

My Acura TL is very reliable. I had it for the past five years. As long as I keep the oil changed and the car tuned up, it runs perfectly. It is truly a luxury car, even though it is over 15 years old. It has some features of today's brand new vehicles. It has heated seats, and wheel locks, sunroof and a Bose radio system. It is my baby.

Dependable and sporty car!

2002 Acura TL Base

This is a great car! It's super dependable. The look is sporty and cute. The gas mileage isn't the best, but I personally don't drive very far. For a 17 year old car, I can't ask for anything better! I don't like paying for premium gas, but that's my biggest complaint.

Smooth Ride small family vehicle

2002 Acura TL Base

The vehicle takes a lot of gasoline. And it's pretty reliable and comfortable. Great size for a small family. I would recommend a vehicle like this to anyone. I have a silver color exterior with black interior. My kids and I enjoy riding in this car.
