A nice 200hp luxury cruiser.

No problems whatsoever except the shocks which is reasonable after 70K Km.

Car is reliable, steady on the road, and fast (type S). Some wind noise at speeds above 150Km/h.

A good price alternative to a Mercedes or BMW.

Summary:

A great car

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

This model is a very reliable Japanese version of the Acura TL. It's built in the US, but has a Japanese specification motor.

The transmission has a manual feature (ratchet type), so I guess it's a manual automatic. The shifts are not as fast as I would like, but good overall.
