NHTSA — Steering 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.

Car family owned since new and serviced. The front right subframe (rear side of the two parts of the subframe cradle) rotted completely thru (passenger side) leaving hole thru and leaving control arms, steering rack detached. The rest of the frame is rot free, just this one area which is completely rotted away. A google search shows that this is not uncommon with this model Acura TL and some Honda Accord.
