Great reliable car, and I would buy another one
The transmission was replaced under warranty around six and a half years at 108,000 km. I was given a new TL to use for the three days it took to replace it.
The transmission shift module had to be replaced at around 180,000 km, at a cost of $210.
I have maintained this car according to the owner's manual, and have it sprayed with Krown rustproofing yearly. It is in great shape, with no rust, it runs great, and I will likely have it for another 5 years. I drove from Ontario to B.C. and back, a total of 11,500 km, without a problem, and would do it again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
