Another Transmission Failure
By atlthinker on


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


I thought I bought a car that had great value for the dollar, but all of you folks whining about a particular street not being on the Nav system need to get over it...just wait 'til your transmission fails! You won't need to worry about where your going, but about how you are going to get there! This is not what I expected for such a highly rated vehicle and the build quality we have come to expect from Honda. And if you think this is a fluke, go to http://www.acura-tl.com and http://www.acura-cl.com and find out how many other Acura owners have experienced transmission failures...that's right...FAILURE, meaning needing to be replaced!

Best Features

The fact that I could actually drive it at one point.

Worst Features

It is time for Honda to atand up and take responsibility for these problems and make it public...and fix the transmission problem at the source. Many folks are having secoond transmission failures as well! It has also been reported on the 2003 model.
