I took my car and on February 25th to check to see what was wrong with the vehicle I was told and nothing was wrong with the vehicle the vehicle shakes and vibrates really bad around 30 to 40 miles an hour. I have read on different forum that it's a transmission, and alot of people have to replace the torque converter. But this is a common issue and Acura doesn't want to repair the problem that's occurring with alot of these models.
