I have a 2004 Tl and 1995 Nissan Maxima SE, both manual transmissions.
As for the 2002/3 TL-S, the tranny problem alone would be enough to steer me clear of it. I know of at least two owners who are on their second replacements. Acura has covered them with an extended warranty and, I believe, loaner cars. But it is still a royal pain in the butt.
As for the Maxima, I'd put my 1995 up against any comparable car out there at the time on the reliability, quality and fun to drive fronts. Mine was made in Japan and drives as well with 153k miles as it did new. Unfortunately, the Maxima has slipped a bit in terms of interior quality and dependability.
So it's a tough choice. I could easily justify (and did) the price premium of a 2004 TL over a 2004 Maxima. But neither of them as 2002/2003 model used cars would be high on my shopping list.

I can strongly say with 22,000 miles on the odometer that this car is pleasure to drive.
Go for it.

Simply that I briefed over the manual. Just follow manual and you should be fine.

I have used my Sony Ericsson T637 in my TL for a little under a month now and have had no problems. Easy to set up and easy to use. The phone is cool also...

I am close to buying a 2004 Acura TL.
I heard the 2005 model is coming out in October 2004. Does anyone know what, if any changes will be made to the 2005 model? Any additional options/packages to consider, any enhancements? Please let me know. Thank you very much.

Acura is notoriously tight-lipped about the new models. Being the TL was new for '04, there are likely to be very few changes for '05.
Acura's have very few options/packages to begin with. The only options for '04 were auto versus manual, navigation system or not, and high performance tires or not for the manual. So, I would think the answer would be no to the new options/packages.
