2003 Acura TL Type S 3.2 V6 from North America
Poor long term reliability
Drivers seat motor failure at 9,100.
CD changer failed twice, 31,230 miles and 44,300 miles.
Motor mounts at 48,700.
Transmission failed dramatically at 52,230 miles. While driving at highway speeds on a wet surface, the transmission shifted from 5th to 2nd gear causing loss of control and serious condition. Since the VIN on our TL was not listed in the safety recall, we never received a warning of this serious safety hazard.
Initial impression of this car was great.
As defects surfaced, the shine wore thin.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
