Hey guys, I think that we should start a 200k + club, ..... for the benefit of the 100k'ers.

I have a 2003 Acura TL with 225000k on it runs great >>>> few things are staring to go wrong but I cant complain> I lucked out earlier this week I found a Black 2003 Acura TLS A Spec with only 91000 k on it> The Tranny was replaced under warranty at 53k >>>> I am really looking forward to picking it up next week. I am not sure if I will keep my old TL it has been such a good car.

253K.

Rebuilt trans twice, seems OK right now.

Recently had to replace the front subframe that rusted out. After that ($700) I decided to look for a new vehicle, but keep the TL. Still have not done the 2nd Timing belt/water pump. Not sure when/if I'll be doing that.

Oddly, there is not body rust unlike our 2005 MDX, which is rusting all over the place.

2003 with 135K. Bought it last year with 121K. Tranny blew before I got over 121K.
Per Carfax it had some kind of service at 60k and was traded in at the same time.

My 2000 TL is currently at 244,600. I purchased it around 90k and I believe it had the transmission recalled prior to my purchase. Ideally I'd like to milk it to 300K.

Knocking like hell on some wood.

Did you do the timing belt service around 210K?

Bought my 2000 TL with 114,000 on it. Blue bolts on the tranny--that means it was replaced before I got it, right?

Anyway, now at 194k. Only routine maintenance till this weekend. Cleaned EGR valve and replaced a coil pack.

Oil change every 5k, tranny fluid 3X3 every 30k. Still runs well.

280K. Original tranny, engine, and pretty much everything else (including the timing belt!).

She has her small issues, but still runs smooth and strong. The thing just won't die.

Last time i glanced at it..

153,000
1st Tranny (as far as i know)
Did a 3x3,and swapped the screw on.

So far so good. Just some... experienced paint, and a bit of leather failing on the drivers seat.

At least it waited until the end of the trip.

1999 TL Base with 202k and counting with the original motor and trans. Just replaced the rear seat due to a hole on the part you sit on. Other than that it doesn't drive like a car of this age and mileage. Could use a door seal for the front driver's door though.

2002 TL-S with 170,000, original tranny, nothing really wrong except the driver's side heated seat doesn't work and sometimes turning up the volume from the steering wheel changes the radio station. Original headlights just now went out, replaced all with aftermarket kit because I suspected one of the ballasts being bad. I bet I'm due for a tranny flush.

Just hit 240,000 miles and running strong. Tranny replaced early on.

The only major (expensive) fixes were the headlights/ballast replacement and tiny oil leak that will likely result in an oil pump replacement.

Funny- my volume knob sometimes changes the station too.
About to turn 164k
