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

Review

I bought my 2002 model Acura 3.2TL based on excellent consumer reports. Why did I not hear about their transmission problems? After 15,000 miles I had to have a new transmission installed under warrenty. After another 10,000 miles on the new transmission the fluid looked like oil! The dealer admitted that the repair shop was full of TL's with transmission problems. From what I have read and heard since, I am amazed there has not been a recall. I hope to read more about this apparent "cover up". Shame on Honda.

Favorite Features

Stylish interior and exterior styling. Good road handling.

Suggested Improvements

A transmission that works!
