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


The Acura TL Type-S is a great sport sedan. Acura has had a hard time with the '02 transmissions. Its a specific range of VIN numbers and if your car falls with in...there is an expected chance of problems with your vehicle. Mine is one of them. Not only do I have one of these cars but 2 and they both exhibit the same qualities. To make the story short, I'm on my 4th trasmission and its due for the next. You come to recognize the signs! The talk I have heard from my countless visits to my dealer is the '03 have had no problems. I will say the car has never left me stranded, but I have had to push it out of parking spots because of no "Reverse."
