I have an interesting take on this one. I am a Saab dealer, (previously a Honda Dealer) so I sell the Saab but my wife owns a 97 3.2TL. Here is the deal. If you look by the numbers only, it would seem that the Acura is the better deal. Drive both of them and then tell me what you think. If you were considering a 1996-98 TL I could understand. The 99 is really an Accord with a little more polish!! If after driving them you are still considering the Acura, do yourself a favor and drive the Accord EXV6. You will be getting almost the identical car, (less optional navigation system) for a beginning MSRP of roughly $24,745. Hope this gives a little different take.
