Actually, Acura is extending warranties on some MDX's with the infamous bad tranny. You might want to contact an Acura service center and inquire.
#9037 of 9045 Trying to sell a TL
Jun 19, 2008 (1:21 pm)
">I have a 2002 TL that I have been working on for over a year now. She has about 80k on her plus a supercharge and all new exhaust system. I worked on the suspension and body as well. Transmission is new also. The whole sound system has been changed. Alpine 4 channel amps and a mono block plus all new speakers and DVD system have been installed. I really don't want to part with her but need to know as soon as possible how much she is worth since the economy is plunging downhill. As a co-acura fanatic I hope to recieve some good tips from you guys. Thanks.

Try hondacuraworld.com. I have ordered several items from there with no problems. Looks like they have a genuine Acura TL cover for $205.
#9041 of 9045 Thinking of buying a 2000 TL

I'm thinking of buying a 2000 TL but all the talk about the bad transmissions really turns me off of them. Should i be concerned with this or is it not as bad as it seems. Or is it really just hit and miss.
Also do you have to run the high oct. gas in them?

I have a 2000 TL purchased Feb. 2007. I now just replaced the transmission. Thought it was slipping around Dec 2007. If I KNEW about the transmission problems I WOULD NOT have bought the car. Now I just hope this one doesn't go up before I can get rid of it. Otherwise a nice car. Why buy a car when you know about the transmission recall on that year and model ?

Sep 10, 2008 (4:39 am)
I'm in the process of buying a 01' 3.2TL with Nav System but I have a few questions..
1.Is the system easy to use? will the updated Acura DVD disks work with this older system and if so will I have to upgrade the software system also?
2. Or should I just put in an aftermarket type?

#9045 of 9045 Engine sputter
Jan 07, 2012 (5:27 pm)
I currently own a Acura 1999 3.2 TL, which I bought new in "99". I currently have 99430 miles on it. I replaced the transmission about three weeks ago, and last week, I had a fuel injector go bad so I got that fixed along with getting the tune-up package of $1300. I was early on the tune-up schedule, but I thought I would get that done for preventative measures. When I left the garage that very same day, I notice a small inconsistent sputter-very mild. To notice it, you would have to be parked. Sometimes it would be noticeable and others very mild. There is no engine check light on. I have never had this before in this car. Does this mean that I have another fuel injector going bad, but this time no engine light showing, or is it something to do with the tune-up they gave me.
I have never driven this car hard at anytime time. My mileage is low considering the years. I have never replaced the headlights yet-not much night driving. I have done the required maintenance-the car looks virtually new inside and out.
