2006 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.

2006 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.

Honda has recalled 2006 Accord, Civic, CR-V, Element, Insight, Odyssey, Pilot, Ridgeline, Acura MDX, RL, RSX, TL, TSX, and 2007 Honda Fit vehicles because the contact information for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is listed incorrectly in the owner's manual. Honda is contacting dealers and customers to provide them with a postcard containing the correct information.

Acura has recalled 2006 TL vehicles because the bolts that mount the front air bag external impact sensors may be loose. If the sensor bolts fall out, the sensor may not function properly, which may prevent air bag deployment in the event of an accident. Dealers will inspect and re-torque the front air bag external impact sensor bolts.

2006 Acura TL Reviews

Purchased 2002 Acura. I asked the dealership about issues I had read about with transmission problems and was assured these few incidents were operator errors and not an Acura problem. Two replaced transmissions later was a costly error to realize I was duped into purchasing an overpriced piece of metal.

I just bought my very 1st car, I've put a lot of thought into what I wanted and Acura was the best option to me. I love the luxury that comes from Acura and this body style is by far the best.

I love this car.
