I bought a 2002 Acura TL shortly after joining. I kept it about a year. Haven't had an Acura since. I still have the Honda Odyssey that replaced the TL.

Still have my '04 TL. My son drives it now.

Wife has her '09 MDX.

I now drive what the TLX should have been -- quiet, fast, efficient, ergonomic, AWD, with a more capable sound system than the '04 TL -- a 2017 A4.

Nice choice! I made the mistake of jumping on the 15 TLX (SH-AWD). Had a long, awful battle with Acura over the transmission. Lease was up, now happily drive a 16 IS. Wife still has the MDX though, and I've nothing but praise. Although we got a 14 which avoided that awful 9-speed tranny....

Almost! My 06 TSX met it's demise over the summer. I had handed it down to my son, who made a left turn across three lanes and one of the lanes was blind - pulled right in front of someone. Car was totaled, but a friend of mine bought it as salvage and actually managed to restore it to driving condition. So it's still out there - bullet proof as ever. That car was a rock star.

My wife wants me to give the TL to my new-driver son and get a Lexus SUV.
Not gonna happen-- it's a bad idea for a new driver to have a car capable of 60 mph in under 9 seconds, I detest SUVs and the boss said I could get a stick shift for the mid-life crisis car.

Yea, I still have my 03 cl-s manual, and I will probably keep it for as long as I can as a second car, as Manual transmissions are becoming impossible to find.

I still own the same 2004 Acura TL from the moment I joined Acurazine. Closing my 10 year mark here in less than a month. Time does fly.

One of the first members here (had to re-register after a database issue, but originally signed up like Jan/Feb of 2000)...

LOL, not me. I haven't actually owned a Honda/Acura in over a decade (12 years and counting now)...

Will be 12 years as a registered member in March, and 13 as a lurker. I totaled my first car in early 2004 and began lurking/researching immediately after before finding my '01 CL in the fall of 2004. Hard to believe I was around 18 or 19 at that time.

By some miracle, although I've also owned a truck at the same time for years. 260,000+ miles, and I've put almost 200k on it myself. Almost everything is original, including transmission and all belts. As much as I've put it through it simply won't die.

Nope, but my best friend's husband still drives it. '06 CGP TSX 6MT. It's still a great little car that's going strong for them.


And dammit, I'm before the cut-off now. What happened to you're not old unless you started here in 1890?
