RepairPal Expert Overview:
Honda has recalled 1998-1999 Accord and Acura CL, and 1999 Odyssey and Acura TL vehicles because the ignition cylinder body may be worn, which can cause the shift interlock not to function properly. If the vehicle does not securely lock in "Park" due to a worn ignition cylinder, the vehicle may roll, which can cause a safety issue. Dealers will inspect the cylinder body for wear and replace the cylinder body, collar, and latch plate if necessary. If there are no signs of wear and all is operating as designed, dealers will replace the latch plate.

230K miles and I just had the Trans overhauled for the first time. Aside from normal wear and tear items (Brakes, Timing Belt, and Tune Ups, this car has performed great and has been super reliable its entire time with my family. I would definitely consider another Acura,,,maybe @ 300k : )
