The Acura TL is a good car for everyday use.

2003 Acura TL Base

When I first got the Acura TL I loved it. Drives smooth and fast with nice steering. The design of the vehicle is great for comfort and safety. I especially love the sunroof and back windows that go all the way down. The problems I have with the TL is that it's low to the ground and absolutely cannot drive in any shallow water. The radio locks automatically if you disconnect the battery. The only way to unlock is to call manufacturer for the code.

The heated seats are wonderful! I would buy another Acura in a heartbeat.

2003 Acura TL Base

Transmission went out in 2016, problems with door seals maybe they just wore out. Smooth ride, great performance pretty much all round. Love the power on take off. I bought this car used in 2016 so I suppose things are going to wear out. Replacement parts are pretty pricey, just a headlamp bulb was $95. Overall I do love the car.

I love my car and I wouldn't trade it for nothing in the world

2003 Acura TL Base

The only problem that I have with my car is the paint has peeled off my hood and to the side. My car performance is great, I love it only a few minor problems as wear and tear from normal everyday uses. I really love my car and if something happens to it that I can't drive it I feel totally lost.

The ac system works great.

2003 Acura TL Base

This is actually a great vehicle for getting around in it sits comfortably, con is any small thing hits the car there is a scratch or imprint or chip j. The paint, it's great in gas. In my opinion this is a nice car for a college student or very busy mother.
