Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: The 1999-2003 Acura TL has a known & widespread defect with the transmission.

Honda fixed some vehicles with a recall in 2004 by changing the oil cooler return line. To settle a class action lawsuit in 2006, Honda extended the transmission warranty on some of these Acura TL's to 93 months / 109,000 miles.

Now these vehicles are past the warranty limit, so buyer beware.

2000 Acura TL Owner Comments

problem #1

TL LX 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,000 miles


From reading all the post's I could find through Google I learned that if you own an Acura or a Honda you can just plan on having the AirBag light come on eventually and the Dealer will charge at least $90 to clear the code when all you need is some "GOOD" instructions and a paperclip and anyone can do it them self. Of course if there really is a problem the light will come right back on or not go away at all and then you can plan on having no money whatsoever for 6 months when the Dealer gets done screwing you for $1000's in parts and labor. They don't make their money selling you the car. They pay for their gold teeth in the service and repair department.
