Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Kenny asks: Do you have any particular opinions on 2008 Acura TLs? The one I’m kinda eyeing has about 76,000 miles and a V6 engine.
My reply: These are great cars – and one with only 76,000 miles is exceptionally great. My only concern would by why the car has only 76,000 miles. Most cars are driven about 12,000 miles each year, so this car should have well over 100,000 miles on the clock. Assuming it’s got low miles because it was lightly used – bully! But try to find out whether it sat for long intervals, especially if it sat outside.
Otherwise – assuming it checks out as far as condition and the price is right – green light. This car was made at just the right time. It has everything good about a modern luxury-sport sedan, without almost everything that’s bad about current luxury-sport sedans. The V6 is brilliant – and has no turbo. It is not direct-injected. A not-ten-speed/DSG/CVT transmission. Very little in the way of Big Bother technology, too.
I remember driving them when they were brand-new. It seems like just yesterday. ”
