Purchased my '99 TL w/o NAV in July, 1999. It just ticked over 201,000 miles. It has been generally reliable, but needed a transaxle rebuild at 109,000 miles. It has also been plagued with rust issues. In 2013, the power steering fluid hard lines rusted out and required front subframe removal to replace. I'm currently well into a DIY fuel tank replacement project due to slow fuel leaks from major rust along the front seam of the tank. That repair entails removing the exhaust pipe and rear subframe, a job that revealed rusty brake lines, fuel lines, and many bolts too rusty to remove. The original stainless exhaust system is fairly intact, but the converter and muffler flanges are too rusty to reuse. Both mufflers have enough rust to warrant replacement. I tried purchasing a replacement exhaust pipe from the converter to the mufflers, but Advance Auto cancelled the order after the manufacturer quoted them several months delivery. I'll keep looking for another aftermarket exhaust pipe. I had to disconnect the parking brake cables inside the car because the rear brake backing plates were too rusty to remove the other ends. Chicago winters take a toll on many parts exposed to road salt, snow, slush, etc. Surprisingly, most of the floor underside looks like new.
