2006 Acura TL Reviews

Purchased 2002 Acura. I asked the dealership about issues I had read about with transmission problems and was assured these few incidents were operator errors and not an Acura problem. Two replaced transmissions later was a costly error to realize I was duped into purchasing an overpriced piece of metal.
I just bought my very 1st car, I've put a lot of thought into what I wanted and Acura was the best option to me. I love the luxury that comes from Acura and this body style is by far the best.
I love this car.
