      Your seats look nicer than the ones on my 08 Type S, and I only have 50k miles on it... Great job keeping it in mint condition!

      Haha thanks! Those seats crack pretty easily!

      You can add an aftermarket transmission cooler. This is why the 07-08 Acura tls have more reliable transmissions.

      Thanks for the review. My '07 TL (base w/ navigation) is about to turn 125k, had it for 2 and a half years, not a daily driver. It runs about like new, love the shiftable automatic and dropped fog lights in the front with beautiful black paint and very dark tint windows. This generation seems to be everyone's favorite design. I stick with the mid-priced tires but I'm sure if you go with the Acura recommendation, probably a noticeable difference. The only thing that seems expensive is the 93 octane fuel, maintenance costs are relatively low. I think Acura is the most competitive in that area.

      My 07 tl sometimes makes a power steering pump noise but it goes away. Should i change the power steering pump itself or just the O-rings?

      I love my TL so much that i'm thinking about selling mine and getting the same one with low mileage. mine also has tranny issues (slips in first. oil change didn't help)

      I'm not sure if it was intentional or unintentional on Acura's part but the cup holders are also sort of heated and cooled. The air flow to the back seat vent runs right under the cup holder so when you have the AC on it cools the drinks and when the heat is on it keeps them hot. I always forget about this little feature but it's pretty neat.

      Get the 2008 tl type s its a refined version of your 2004 plus the price for car, parts and maintenance is cheaper than the TLX

      I own a white 2006 Aspec and luv it.i also have a 2009 bmw M5 but still like to drive the tl better. Ive owned a 2008 type s and honestly didnt notice a power difference at all its all just hype and a way for dealers to rip people of with decals lol

      about 4 months ago
    • Michael Miller
      Michael Miller In reply to Sunny Sss

      I've always wondered if the difference between the base and Type S was a noticeable one. I test drove a bmw m240i the other day and to be honest, it felt 90% like driving my TL. I'm sure the m5 is a beast comparatively though haha

      Great video. I just bought an 06 with 125,000. In great condition with great service records. I paid 6,900. Just noticed an oil leak. What should I do? I have a 97 integra gsr with an oil leak and it has 225,000 so I’m not too scared but am a little worried.

      It unfortunately does not have aux. If I remember correctly it does have some sort of way for connecting your phone, probably Bluetooth, but it didn't work for me so I haven't bothered with it.

      TL is reliable IF you dont modify it. Lol
      Things to look for that go bad on it if you are buying used TL: (from my personal experiences)
      Transmission (auto, you will be safer off with a manual)
      Paint (fading)
      Dash (cracking)
      Leather seats (tearing)
      Oil pan drain plug hole (Aluminum strips)
      Power steering pump (bad o-rings causes noise)
      A/C (stator went out)

      Thats pretty much it, if its a stock TL you are trying to buy.

      I bought an acura tl 2004 with all the problems you mentioned above smh.. except for the oil pan thing.. everything else was a problem my tl had, I bought it a year ago and thought all I
      had to fix were the seats and the exterior paint and that was not the case. bought it at 3k, repair cost so far 2.5k

      2008 here fully bolted as a daily all seasons. I do a lot of driving as a contractor, 196k and still feels brand new. No cracked dashes or cracked seats, original transmission etc. All maintenance done myself and some from Acura. Only recent major replacement was alternator which went around 180k. Everything is still great. First and last car i bought. Take care of your car, and it will take care of you. Lots of life on the engine left before i swap and continue

      I've had a 2006 for 2 yrs now. Got it with 85,000 and it now has 101,000. Changed the trans fluid 2 times but occasionally still has a small slip going into 2nd gear. The timing belt tensioner now needs to be changed and plan on getting the entire belt kit and water pump. It's advised to change them around 100,000. also, the front valve cover has a slight oil leak and it runs onto the exhaust manifold, under hard acceleration.

      My 2006 Acura TL recently went over 135K miles, and still running great! You keep your car very nice and stock, which is awesome! Do you still have your car and do you intend to keep it? I plan to keep mine for a long time!

      Thanks! Yes I still have it - running great too. I just haven't had much free time to make more videos unfortunately. And definitely yes in terms of keeping it. At least for a while. I'd like to upgrade to a 2008 type S eventually I think
