He said he would never buy any Acura pal! Seems like a good reason to say that because of the TL he will not buy any Acura.
GM by the way has vehicles that are worse than the TL. They might not eat transmissions but they sure will eat a lot of something else sooner or later, and that is the reason I do not own anymore GM vehicles.
Where do you live? Detroit? I am in Saginaw and I will not buy another American car again! Too many unecessary problems. The ownership of my American cars, especially the GM's was like having another child that is in juvenile hall all the time.
My Honda has 250,000 problem free miles and I will be back to Honda to replace it when I am tired of driving it (cause it won't die).
I had 3 Accords, a Legend an Integra, and a Tl type S so I know a little about Honda. All were purchased new. I own 2 brand new GM's...Got too expensive owning Honda.
What year is your Honda pre 2000? take a hard look when you replace yours... I will never buy another Tl either.
I own an 2003 Acura TL at 39000, mile my trans blew, have 42000, my trans is going again. I just became a Toyota guy.
I have owned a 2003 3.2TL for several years. I bought it with about 15,000 miles on it. It currently has about 42,300 and I have enjoyed driving it. It has been relatively trouble free so far. My Warrenty expired a year ago of course. My current problem is the fact that the dashboard has warped to the point that the vents have partially popped out. It has been parked in the sun, and it has been hot, but I don't live in a really hot climate. I took it to a dealer to see if this could be fixed. Ha! The 4 men who looked at it seemed overwhelmed and stated that they had never seen anything like this before and couldn't do anything for me. They gave me a rather expensive quote on replacing the Dashboard which they seemed disinclined to do. I frankly find it hard to believe that out of all the Acuras (and Hondas) produced that year that my car would be the only one to have this particular flaw. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
