NHTSA — Tires 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.

Bought four new uniroyal tiger paw tires from bj's on November 1, 2010. Tire size was 205 60 116 for a 2000 Acura TL. On Wednesday evening, February 23, 2011, I was traveling on I-40 West and had a tire blow-out. It was the right rear tire. I was able to pull off the road and leave my car overnight. On Thursday, Feb. 24, 2011, after having someone replace the flat tire with the spare tire, I drove to bj's in mooresville, nc and left the car to get the tire fixed.

The contact owns a 2000 Acura TL. The vehicle has sunny sun 3800 tires, size 225/40/ZR18 (na). While driving approximately 30 mph on normal road conditions, the vehicle began pulling in one direction. The driver pulled over to the side of the road and inspected the vehicle. He observed that the front driver's side tire exploded. In addition, the sidewall of the tire exhibited severe cracking. Roadside assistance was called to the scene and they replaced the tire with a spare. The vehicle resumed normal operation and was taken to an authorized tire shop. The technician stated that they were not responsible for the replacement of the defective tire and it was not in stock. The vehicle was taken to a different authorized tire shop for a second opinion and the technician stated that the defective compound contributed to the sidewall failure. The four tires were replaced at the contact's expense. The VIN was unknown. The failure and current mileages were 171,000.
