2015 Acura TLX: Service and a Surprise
August 26, 2015
At just more than 6,000 miles, our 2015 Acura TLX requested its first service. Honda/Acura maintenance language calls this an A1 service: "A" for oil change, "1" for a tire rotation.
A surprise recall surfaced when our advisor typed the VIN into his computer.
"I haven't seen this one before," he began. "There is a recall." He raised his voice to read aloud so another service advisor could hear: "Vehicle may shift into neutral without warning and cannot be shifted back to drive until the car is shut off and restarted."
We left the car not knowing how long it might remain, but it was ready relatively quick. The oil change and tire rotation were basic. The recall required a software update. Both were done in about three hours.
Total Cost: $80.64
Total Days out of Service: 0
