2002 Acura TL 3.2 Type-S 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)

Review

I can't even imagine how Acura can get away with selling cars with repeated problem transmissions. I bought an 01 CL-S and had 4 transmissions. Just bought a certified 02 TL-S 3 weeks ago and it is already at the dealer for a new trans. Reverse jumps and sometimes won't respond, 1st to second jumps, 2nd to 3rd jumps, and it downshifts on me without notice while driving. These cars are unsafe and unreliable. I do not recommend buying Acura. You get a lot of features for your money, but it won't help you if you can't drive the car! Replaced transmissions are rebuilds. Acura should solve the problem, not delay it until you need another trans 20k miles later.

Suggested Improvements

Solve the issues. Dont give rebuilds. Figure out the problem and actually fix it.
