Happy Fourth of July! Celebrate with an American car, made in America for the American market: the Acura TL. This third-generation in particular is a car this country can be proud of.

What? Me Worry?

I had a third generation with a stick. It’s nearly bulletproof, and fun to drive. I eventually handed it down to my son. The car is now closing in on 200k miles. One of the best car purchases I’ve ever made.

I think the styling of the third generation was so spot-on that it could probably be reintroduced today with nothing more than an infotainment system upgrade.
