thinking about buying a tl

I'm thinking about buying a tl. I know the 2004 and up are the nicest looking style. But limited income would stick me in a 2003 or older. I have read online that people are complaining about the trasmissions. Just wondering if anyone on here has one around that year or if the people are just driving them way too hard. Any information would be very usefull. Thankyou

Shaun

If you keep looking, you can find a 04 for a decent price.

13 K for a 04 TL is pretty decent. Cars are much cheaper on the East coast though.

04 TL here in AB would probably run you close to 17-19 K give or take with 120-140 KM on it.

But OP, regardless of tranny problems, every car has their flaws dude, just depends on who you buy from and the history of the car..IMO.

03 TL? 2nd generation? save up for a type-s 07-08, they are pretty cheap now, especially around this time. i got mine during summer 2 years ago for 27gs 07 type-s w/ 40xxxkm. good deal imho.

TL is pimp as hell.

Good luck.

I just took a quick look on Autotrader in my area and they are expensive as fuck. Cheapest was an 04 Auto Premium for $12k

jayunsplanet is an unknown quantity on c-rsx
03 2G's are like $6k.. w/ probably close to 100k miles. 04+ 3G's are like $12k+, under 100k miles.
Yes, the 3G TypeS in a 6MT is hands down a great car - but those are still so pricey - Mid-20's. Prob out of the OP's range.

The tranny in my 03 went up out of the extended warranty. Acura paid for most of the replacement - which was nice. I sold it a few months later and bought an 05 TL. So much nicer.
