I recently purchased a 2007 Acura TL type S with 42378 miles on the odometer. Upon getting home, I found out that the dashboard was cracked in three (3) places. Fortunately for me, the car was still under warranty so I took it in to Acura dealership to get the dashboard replaced. While at the dealership I found some other customers with the same issue. I later found out that this was common problem with the Acura TL especially in the southern states. Another issue I'm experiencing is with the 3rd gear which I also found out to be common with the Acura. Sometimes while driving, the stick would not go into 3rd gear smoothly or sometimes it just pops out of the 3rd gear. The third and final complaint that I have read about and starting to experience is rattling. The interior cabin of the car though quiet from exterior noise seems to be making some noise of its own from the inside starting with the windows. I hope someone at Acura is aware of these problems and is dealing with the issue. Beside that, the car seems to be a fine piece of steel.

I own a 2007 Acura TL-navi. The front doors of the car are large and heavy. The part or parts of the door hinge mechanism which are supposed to hold the front doors in the open position when entering or exiting the vehicle appear to be under-designed for their intended purpose. As a result, the doors often close unexpectedly with significant force, and can seriously injure a hand or leg. The problem is especially severe when the car is parked in an uphill position, as the force of gravity causes the front doors to slam shut. I request that NHTSA require the manufacturer to re-design the hinge mechanism (or other parts that are defective) and offer them to owners at no charge.
