Acura TL Problems
The green "Drive" light on the dashboard tends to burn out, requiring replacement of the burned out bulb.
I found out that at only 83000 miles my TL had to have the engine mounts replaced already at a cost of almost $800.00
Acura TL Questions
I threw a spark plug and broke the ignition coil. Have a feeling I stripped the threads in the head. Acura dealership recomended rebuilding entire motor, and while I love my car I'm not gonna put that kind of money into it. Will replacing head and coil fix my problem?
Acura TL Recalls
This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Honda dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.
Prolonged under-hood and power steering fluid temperatures may cause the power steering hose to deteriorate resulting in cracks and power steering fluid leakage. Power steering fluid can leak onto the catalytic converter leading to smoke and possibly an under-hood fire. Dealers will install a new heat resistant power steering hose to correct this concern. The Honda recall number is S39.
Honda is recalling 2,430 vehicles because a driver's airbag inflator, installed as a replacement part, may be defective. In the event of deployment, these inflators could produce excess internal pressure and rupture, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants. Dealers will inspect and replace the driver's airbag inflator as necessary. The recall is expected to begin by June 27, 2011.
Acura TL Reviews
I bought a low mileage '05 TL at the beginning of '09. It has been a fantastic and reliable car so far. I love the style and performance. My only complaint is the dashboard. If you read reviews on this you will find it is an all to common problem for the '04 and '05 TL's to experience major cracks in the dashboard. Acura needs to step up to the plate and offer a voluntary recall.
The interior sucks. Mine and many other owners of the 05 acura dashboards are cracking. There should be a recall. It is ridculous to pay so much for a car that is defective. So far everything else has been working fine.
I love this car. Bought new in 2010 and it's been awesome.
