2001 Acura TL from North America
This car is a huge rip off and dangerous!!!
My transmission blew at 79,000 miles.
My transmission blew again at 129,000 miles.
This car is a serious rip off!! I had my first transmission replaced at 79,000 miles. The thing is they recalled the transmission and then replaced it with a re-manufactured transmission. The second transmission blew at 129,000 miles. My car is not even paid for yet and I have gone through two transmissions. The dealership will not pay to replace it, even though it only lasted about 8 mos. because I am out of warranty!!! It is way too expensive to fix. I don't understand how Honda/Acura can continue to risk people's lives and rip them off. My lawyer is going to be getting in touch with Acura, if anyone else is planning on taking legal action against Acura please email me. If everybody sticks together they have to do something!!! firstname.lastname@example.org.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I thought the same thing! 50,000 miles in 8 Months. I wonder how much of all this stuff is exaggeration? I own a 2000 3.2 TL I bought in April '04 with 28,000 miles, tranny went out at 74,000 miles in Dec '05 - no questions ask COVERED by warranty. I am now at 85,000 and no problems yet - car is great, I love it - service is great-no problems. Read other reviews on other cars, most all have problems. The only one vehicle that did not have a single problem or negative review is the Toyota Camry -- which my boyfriend has and it has 264,000 miles and we just replaced the tranny in it - but never any other problems. Maybe some people need to sell their Acura and buy a Toyota.
