2008 Acura TSX Problems
A loud rattle type noise may be noted from the engine after a cold start. This can be caused by a faulty valve timing control actuator. Replacing the failed actuator will commonly correct this noise issue.
The illumination of the entertainment/navigation screen and switches may fail. This is generally caused by a failed circuit board. Acura has extended the warranty on the audio display unit to 7 years or 105,000 miles for the 2004 model year only.

2008 Acura TSX Recalls
In states that use corrosive materials for deicing the road the driver may track materials into the vehicle that saturate the carpeting.

Dealers will inspect and replace any damaged ECU. All vehicles will have a waterproof cover installed onto the ECU.
