    I'm about to pull the trigger on a 2006 TL w/Navi 55k miles. Anything I need to be concerned about with these cars mechanical wise? It's a certified preowned so I guess there's not much to be worried about.

    Check out acurazine.com

    From what I recall, they're pretty sturdy/well built cars. GL!

    In, 2006 crew with nav :h5:. Never had any issues with my car.

    I think there were some tranny issues in the 2004 models, but they were a big problem with the previous generation.

    check the "myacura" page when you get it. I just sold my 03 TL-S because of a transmission problem. turns out they have transmission problems. Google "acura tl transmission" and see for youself.

    Friend of mine has a 05 TL, and had to have the transmission replaced at 30,000 miles.

    my $.02

    I have a 07 TL-S. If you're buying a manual transmission, the 3rd gear give you problems once in awhile. Other than that, its a great car.

    I also have an 07 TL-S and the tranny has just started shifting gears when it doesn't need to when in manual mode. 34k miles so far.

    This is my 2nd TL and I love the cars. The technology for the price is great. Typically, TL's go 100k-200k miles if you take good care of them.

    www.acurazine.com is a great site with a wealth of info.
