Wonderful Reliable Car

by Go with Acura from Highlands, NC on Sat Jul 22 2006

I bought my 1997 3.2 TL in 2002. OVer the past four years it has been a wonderful car. Reliable, smooth ride, and it still looks great despite being almost 10 years old now. I am actually going to buy another Acura next year. I live in the mountains where it snows and with the front wheel drive I was able to get around fine.

Great Car

by Steve Alschott from on Sat Mar 31 2012

This was my first car and it was great. I only had one problem with it and that was it. The car runs smoothly and is big enough to seat people comfortably. This is a great car for a first time driver.

Old but first car

by LindsM from NY on Sun Jun 04 2017

This car I thought was good for its age. I owned it for 1.5 years and after previous owner replaced many parts, I still spent around $1000 replacing more. It was a good first car for me, because now I really appreciate my newer (still used) car. It lasted 20 years and I know it was a good car in its day.

Our Take on the 1997 Acura TL

Acura's TL (Touring Luxury) sedans are almost like twins. With the same basic body and 111.8-inch wheelbase, their looks are nearly identical, but they have different engines and different characters. Which you choose is a matter of preference and pocketbook.

The 2.5TL, with an in-line, 5-cylinder engine and 176 horsepower, has a firmer ride and a sportier feel. Its price starts at $28,450.

The 3.2TL, with a 3.2-liter V6 and 200 horsepower, feels more lavish, and luxurious. It begins at $32,950.

Both models come fully equipped at this price. Premium packages are also offered with even more features, such as heated seats, heated mirrors and traction control for the 3.2 and leather seats... Read More
