    A friend of my girls dad is selling a 99 3.2TL
    ~80k miles
    asking $4,000.
    Been treated nice
    Single owner, no accidents, maintenance done(guy is picky)

    He just bought a new Lexus and just wants the TL gone....gonna take a look at it soon.

    Any major issues I should know?

    What are you guys thoughts on these cars?

    I have a subscription to consumer reports. And I have found it to be EXTREMELY accurate with its reliability ratings. Seems the Early TLs have tranny problems.

    isn't the warranty extended on the acura's with crappy transmissions?

    if so i would buy if i needed a car.

    KNOWING the owner of a used car is a HUGE advantage...
