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

Review

First day off the lot and it was back in the shop. Got a new transmission and a computer. Just got the car back last week with another new tranny @ 40000 km. The new one is also giving sloppy gear changes and will shift unusually on hills. I wonder how long this will last for? Dealer was mediocre - missed the problem on several visits. They said that they get kept in the dark about the problem transmissions by Honda. I don't think that they can build them to handle the big horses this car can put out.

Favorite Features

Handling, nice standard features

Suggested Improvements

Improve the transmission quality instead of just extending the transmission warranty.
