Default Acura Certifed Pre-Owned

I'm interested in buying a 2001/2002 Acura 3.2 TL Type-S. I'm seeing
a lot of clean Acura Certified Pre-Owned cars.

The premium seems to be abour $2,000 more than the 'non certifed'
cars.

I'd like to hear peopls opinions on if this is worth the extra expense
or if it's just another way for dealers to increase the bottom line.

Thanks

The Certified vehicles have a 100k warranty. However read the fine print
because it doesn't cover everything. Typically covers drivetrain components
etc. Not a bumper to bumper warranty. If the warranty is worth that much to
you get it. However you can just make sure you really have the non certified
car checked out to make sure it is ok and you should be ok. But then again
with the tranny troubles I see maybe the certified is the way to go!
Have I confused you yet?

Of course aren't the bumpers about $1500 anyway?
And the warranties have been extended to 100K on the 'problem' auto trannies
anyway. So...

TLs are bulletproof except for the transmissions.

Waste of money.. Acura and Honda dealers are some of the biggest ripoff
artists when it comes to used cars. This certified used stuff people like
to peddle nowadays is nothing more than playing on your fears, in my view.
It's common knowledge that Honda makes some of the most reliable vehicles
made and that's why they cost more used than most. This record speaks for
itself. The cars the dealers sell aren't any different than before these
programs came up. I bought my CL from a Nissan dealer for $2000 less than
most EL's from Acura dealers with the same mileage.. what a joke.
