Too many defects
Brake light switch at 13K and 65K - would not shift into reverse without dis-engaging shift lock until switch replaced.
Transmission replaced 3 times - 24K, 66K & 69K.
Dashboard warped - replaced at 48K miles.
Dealership gouged the passenger seat when replacing the dashboard and offered no avenue to repair or take responsibility.
Counter-shaft speed sensor replaced at 37K miles.
Lots of repairs for an American Honda product.
A substantial loss in value due to transmission recall - compare the 2003 TL to the 2004.
American Honda has made no efforts to remedy the transmission issue, simply replacing defective transmissions with rebuilt defective transmissions until the extended time duration (years) or mileage reach the limit, then American Honda is in to make extra money in replacement transmission sales and labor costs.
Not sure about this type of business practice.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
