I owned the vehicle for approximately 6months, while driving in a heavy rain storm the Traction Control System engaged automatically. The car lost all traction and slid off the road into a ditch. As a result of this accident it caused over $12,000.00 (twelve thousand!) dollars of damage. Very costly for cosmetic only damage.
Recently I was driving and was receiving hesitation while the transmission was switching from first to second then second to third. This also caused the Traction Control System to engage? I was fortunate to have the 7/year 100,000/mile warranty because the transmission needed to be replaced. I was ensured there was nothing wrong with the Traction Control System and It had nothing to do with the transmission. I will be selling my vehicle immediately!
The services received on the TL for both incidents was less than satisfactory. My husband and I have owned several Acura models (Integra, Prelude, Ledgend, and the TL) and as long as you have no problems or complaints you receive service with a smile. I will not and would not reccommend Acura to anyone after this.
Performance on our Acura models have been wonderful until the TL, that's why we were repeat buyers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
