NHTSA — Air Bags: Frontal Problems

CarComplaints.com Seal Of This Might Hurt

CarComplaints.com 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.

Purchased 2002 Acura brand new. During an accident, the driver air bag did not deploy during crash. The passenger air bag deployed when no one was in the passenger seat during crash. Acura 3.2 TL was featured to be a safe vehicle in advertisements. It had front and side airbags. Acura is combining target markets for approach to safety, best value for high end car, upper-end demographics. For a price of over $28,000, vehicle should be be flawless. Let the buyer beware. Consumer product safety commission should issue a recall.
