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.

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.
