In addition to this video covering the things to look for before purchasing a 2008 Acura TL, or any used vehicle for that matter, it also serves as an introduction to a series of videos I’ll be doing on this car.

This is Episode 1 of the Acura TL series.

Episode 2:

FYI, this information will also be applicable to 2004-2008 Acura TL’s as well as the 2003-2008 Honda Accord with the V6. It also covers some general information on performing a used car inspection on any vehicle.

In addition to the inspection, I also cover how to deal with battery terminal problems since my new TL had some issues with that. Don’t use cheap battery terminals!
