Acura quality? Not in this car.

Vehicle
2001 Acura TL 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
Review
It's not a secret that Acura installed defective transmissions that blow anywhere from 50K to 100K miles. But we've had acid (yes, acid) leak from the electronic rear view mirror onto the shifter, melting the plastic overnight. Apart these unacceptable problems, you have a car that is underwhelming to drive. The engine has nice power, but it's mated to a jerky, malfunctioning transmission (manual mode doesn't cooperated either), and insensitive accelerator feel. Body roll was mentioned in the review, but this car has an absolutely laughable turning radius. If you want to drive to the other gas pump you'll end up back out in the street.
Favorite Features
Powerful V-6, leather seats, climate controls, interior comfort.
Suggested Improvements
Defective transmission (recalled), pedal feel, non-responsive manual mode, weak steering, massive turning radius, rear view leaks dangerous fluid. No kidding.

Perfect three star rating. thank you for honesty. This car is good, but I don't understand why several people rate it five star, and say that their transmission failed ($4000) other than that this is perfect vechicle and gives 30MPG (Even Acura did not claim that).
