Not Shifting Properly
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.

THIS ENGINE LIGHT HAS BEEN ON AND OFF-I HAVE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALER FOR ADVISE ALSO.
TO OTHER MECHANICS AND BEEN GIVEN ALL TYPES OF ANSWERS AND FIXES, AND THE PROBLEM JUST RETURNS BACK A WEEK OR TWO LATER. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO THE TRANSMISSION SHOP ALSO-WITH THE SAME RESULTS. I AM FINDING OUT NOW THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE TORQUE CONVERTER---AND WAS TOLD TO CALL IN FOR A RECALL CHECK ON MY CAR.
