2004 Acura TL Owner Comments

problem #4

TL 6-cyl

  • 123,145 miles


My 2004 Acura TL has a few large cracks on tha dash/instrument panel. I am the second owner that has been garage kept and very well maintained. I do not understand that a luxury car would have such a defect that may produce serious injuries on our children or spouses. Acurazine.com, facebook, twitter and a Georgia news reporter has hundreds of complaints and picturs of this deect and have been told that it is not a problem by dealships. Please make a recall for this defective dash!!!!

Cracked along side of the airbag. Two lines (on each side of the airbag) about 12" long. And there is also about 3 other cracks that randomly appeared! I won't buy another Acura product if this isn't fixed and will tell everyone I know not to buy one! this was zero fault of my own and by the sound of it, it happens to a bunch of their dashes in this particular model!!

Large crack in the dash on passenger side above airbag. It gets bigger every day especially when I turn the ac on after the dash has been hot from parking in the sun. The car is garage kept and not in the heat very much.

Serious vibration in 2004 Acura TL. Vibration in the steering, seats and floor pan. Replaced and rebalanced the tires three times. The vehicle vibrates between the 52 and 58 mph regardless of gear selection. The consumer stated that the vibration is so annoying that he avoids that particular speed range. Michelin xgt Z4's were installed on the vehicle and the vibration continues. The consumer requests information on what to do before initiating the lemon law process. The consumer was told that this problem will most likely cause premature wear of various suspension components and tires.
