Very Displeased with Acura

2008 Acura TL 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


I Purchased my new 2008 Acura Tl in July of 08. Loved the design and features. First issue with car - tire vibration at 50-60 mph. Performance Acura could not fix. Said it is normal for the car to shimmy. 3000k developed a timing belt chirp/chatter at idle. Acura service bulletin for timing belt issue -kept car for 2 weeks -did not fix noise. Now a 18000k still have timing belt noise now with loud whine during acceleration above 3k rpm. After 1 year of ownership dashboard has faded light grey/whitish from black. Hesitates in hot weather. Full of rattles. Have met Acura regional rep - no resolve. They do their best to ignore me. Warranty is useless.

Best Features

Navigation, Audio, Style

Worst Features

Engine without major design flaw. They know they have a timing belt issue that a Acura Service bulletin does not always fix. Once they know it can't be fixed they tell you its not a problem and ignore you. Fit and finish is poor compared to the last 2 acuras I owned.
