Transmission horror

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


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.

Best Features

Handling, nice standard features

Worst Features

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