Acura Problems

Loud Rattle Type Noise from Engine After Cold Start

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.

Automatic Transmission May Fail

The automatic transmission tends to fail more often than in similar models.

Engine Mounts

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

Acura Reviews

I purchased my 2008 Acura TL Type S (Auto) in January 2008 and have enjoyed it tremendously for its performance, reliability and technology. Having owned a 2004 Acura TL (Auto), I can say that the performance upgrade and subtle styling improvements were worth the difference. The '04 TL was a great value and an enjoyable daily driver with all the reliability Acura/Honda was known for. However, t...
I just got rid of my 2010 acura mdx at 140K miles. For the last 2 years I have had to spend $4K a year in repairs.

It was a money pit. I thought this would last at least 200K miles. I could have/should hav...
