Pros: Great engine, DVD Nav A+++
Cons: Stolen HID lights
I loved my 00 TL. Great handling and great performance. The DVD navigation is awesome. I am somewhat disappointed with the wind noise coming off the front door windows. I heard it in the test car and the one I bought. It's not terrible but surprising for this type of car.
I was forced to sell my TL because of the HID lights being stolen. Mine were stolen twice with each repair costing about $3200. I could no longer feel comfortable taking the car to work or stores. Acura has a flaw with the hood release which can be reached by pulling the bumber off with a good tug and then opening the hood.
Acura dealers are also hard to deal with. They like to charge above sticker.
