Awful 6 speed Transmission
By pjmaz63 on


2012 Acura TL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


The new 6 speed transmission is awful, in a weak attempt to squeeze extra MPG out of the car this is by far the worst transmission i have ever driven.
It has a severe hesitation/hunting issue in off the line accelerations and awful harsh awkward shifts in low gears.

Best Features

nice quiet ride

Worst Features

Dump the new 6 speed !

I just bought TL SH-AWD and i think the transmission is excellent. For more aggressive acceleration use hand shifts on the steering wheel. Press them twice and go as fast as you want.
