2002 Acura TL Type S 3.2 from North America
If the transmission was reliable, it would be a great car
I bought this Acura TL used in very good condition.
The transmission had recently been serviced.
At 160,000 miles, the transmission started slipping between 2nd and 3rd gear.
RPMs revving like it was not in gear at all.
Otherwise, the car has been comfortable and reliable so far.
The car is very comfortable.
The defrost system does not seem to be adequate in very cold climates.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

You are lucky the car even made it to 160k, check out other reviews on the site.
My girlfriends 2004 Accord has been sitting in the driveway for about a month now, the transmission won't shift and we cannot afford a new one for a few months at least as money is tight. She is driving an old Geo Metro we got for $500 until we can save up the $3000 for the new tranny.
We are hoping to get it fixed and sell it, no more Honda's for us!
