2004 Acura TL Problems

The automatic transmission tends to malfunction more often than in similar models. The Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate.

A squeak type noise may be noted when raising or lowering the front door glass. Our technicians tell us that in most cases this issue can be corrected by replacing the door glass seal.

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

2004 Acura TL Recalls

Acura has recalled certain 2004-2007 TL models because the power steering hose may leak onto the extremely hot catalytic converter, which may cause a fire hazard. Dealers will replace the power steering hose with a new heat-resistant design.

Acura has recalled 2004-2005 TL vehicles because the wiper motor may stop working. Water may enter the wiper motor breather port and cause corrosion, which may cause the electrical circuit in the wiper motor to fail. Dealers will replace corroded wiper motors and modifications will be made to prevent water from entering the existing or new wiper motor.

Honda and Acura are recalling numerous 2001–2004 vehicles to inspect for an internal automatic transmission fault. This fault could result in gear failure, which can cause the transmission to lock up. If the transmission were to lock up with the vehicle in motion, a crash could result. If the inspection reveals internal transmission damage, the transmission will be replaced. If no internal damaged is noted, the transmission oil cooler return line will be revised in order to increase fluid flow. For more information, please call Honda at 1-800-999-1009 or Acura at 1-800-382-2238.
