1998 Acura TL RecallsAcura Recalls 1996–1998 TL and 1996–1999 RL Models Due to a Loose Transmission Case Bolt
Acura is recalling certain 1996–1998 TL and 1996–1999 RL models because an automatic transmission case bolt may loosen and fall out, allowing the transmission to disengage from the differential. This may cause a loss of power to the drive wheels without warning. Also, a parked vehicle could move unexpectedly if the parking brake is not set. Dealers will install a redesigned transmission case bolt to correct this issue.
