After 8 years and 175,500 miles of service, I said good bye to my 03 Acura TL Sport.
This particular model had a problem with the transmission. Acura warrantied them out to 120,000. I rolled into the shop last spring 160,000 and had to pay for the rebuild myself. This spring I rolled back in, 2,000 miles past the 12/12 warranty. No one wanted to investigate the fault lights to strenuously. It was time to go shopping.
I didn't have to look long before I figured out what I wanted...the same car (almost). I came home Sunday with an 08 Acura TL-S. I briefly thought of getting the 6 speed manual, even took a couple out for test rides before deciding I'm just to lazy. If I want to shift something I'll hop on two wheels.
286hp. I wonder how miles between tickets? Wish me luck!
