Don't ever buy one!
I also have a 2002 TLS Acura and had to have the transmission replaced at 47000 miles.
I now have 127000 miles and the transmission is starting to slip again. Called the dealership and asked about a replacement, and was told yeah if I pay for it. We will only replace one, and besides I have already received the updated version. Told him yeah well updated version has same problem as old version. He was sorry but nothing he could do.
Told him I will never ever purchase another Honda product.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
