Fast. Reliable. Low maintenance. Everything you need. Only reason why I sold mine was my wife got a new car. They don't make them like they used to.


Low maintenance, good condition, great value

It is is great condition for a 2004 Acura TL, shortly modern style and a great / powerful engine. It still has many year of low maintenance ahead.


Most reliable car I’ve owned

I am driving Acura TL over 10 years. Acura TL is very excellent, comfortable. Maintenance is not too expensive. I plan to buy next new Acura car too.


Smooth as ever!

Love the car! Feel good driving it. It is fun driving as well. Reliable car. Maintenance are done as required. Oil are change is frequent.


Great car

Great car. I just brought one about a mouth ago,only problem that the owner before didn't took car of the trans.. it wet out 2 weeks later...thats really the only main problem I got when did research... As long as you change trans oil when should..trans problems going to be little to none... And I found out that the 02 -04 odessey van has same trans and some year Accord don't worry about sport mode it will work the only difference about the trans is the gear ratio...but still speed the same do the hole dash no problem ...like the original trans never left the car...


needs some mechanical work

This car has plenty of leg room it does need a little bit of work but once fixed runs like new! Let me know if u have any questions


Beast of a car

I would first like to note that I got a great deal on my TL. I have the manual transmission which is really hard to find for a good price. These cars hold there value very well bc they are a very popular and fun to drive. For me the key things are that I wanted the v6 Honda engine as it is extremely reliable and I have worked on them before (my wife owns a pilot), and I wanted 4 doors as I have 3 kids. The only way to get a manual transmission in v6 accord is to go with the 2 door coupe. The other big thing for me is that in the “luxury” brands the Acura’s are by for the cheapest to work on bc it’s driving components are Honda. Parts are cheap and there are plenty of videos on how to fix almost anything on YouTube. I would recommend to anyone, especially someone who wants to be able to work on their own car and that wants something sporty yet extremely reliable. Also there are not many cars in the standard transmission with this kind of power without going way up in cost, or sacrificing reliability. Great car I thoroughly love driving!


Best car I have owned

This car is amazing it’s great for long travel and for luxury and they have the power for something sporty I love it and I don’t think imma get rid of it I have 250,000 miles before I did a engine rebuilt not because it was bad just because I needed a better engine for what imma be doing to it honestly I was thinking on getting a type s for a more sporty but this car is enough for me and the price the type s goes for is way to much compared to the TL there basically the same but just the exterior look if I had the chance to get one I’ll take it.


Smooth and fast!

Plenty of room for 4 adults. Low maintenance. It wants to keep running forever! It charges forward on the on ramp with power to spare and sips gas on the long trips.


Good car

Had this car for couple of years and love it .I want to get another one. Rides smooth, easy and fast. I miss my Acura tl
