#1440 of 5656 Re: Acura TL Owners: Problems & Solutions [KarenS]

Hi, I join this forum to present a problem with my 2000 TL. I purchase it off the show room floor in 1999 with only 13 miles. I use the car for commuting 94 miles round trip 40 hrs a week. I still love the car but as all acura owners know there was a recall on the 2000 thru 2004 TL's for possible transmission problems. We begin to have problem with our transmisson took it in to a dealer and was told that our problem wasn't the same as the recalled problem. Disappointed, we end up paying $2997.00. Do you guys think this was fair? any suggestions.

I need to find out what type of tires they will be putting on the car. If they are new versions of the Bridgestone I don' think they will help the ride any..
#1442 of 5656 Voice Transmission by HandsFreeLink(HFL)

Has anyone had problems with weak voice transmission by HFL when transmitting phone calls from 2004 TL? My HFL phone calls are faint when received by family cell phones. I will advise after dealer investigates next week.
#1443 of 5656 tires versus suspension design
Dec 12, 2004 (9:54 am)
I dont think the rough ride is from the tires.. to be honest the suspension is calibrated for a great hwy ride on smooth pavement. Over uneven pavement on city streets the car has the jitters and rolls, hops and jumps..to me tires can only do so much to mask this tendency of the car.

Has anybody used this to make their non-bluetooth phone into a bluetooth phone for the TL? Did it work?

I agree. I've had my 05TL for a month now.
It came with the Michelins and I have slight vibrations and the ride is bumpy in the city.
I rode home to DC from Delaware over Thanksgiving and because of traffic, got off of I 95 and took a back road (highway)Rt. 40. By the time I got home, I thought my jaw was going to drop off after an hour of hitting unven pavement or slight bumps. It is really a rough ride. I was concerned whether it was the tires, but after reading, it seems that Michelins are better than the Bridgestones, and I think it's just the way the car is going to be. I love my car, but short trips aren't that comfortable!
#1446 of 5656 possible vibration fix
Dec 15, 2004 (2:12 pm)
i've been poking around here and noticing that some have had problem w/ vibration at high speed. I've had similar problem w/ my 02 MDX since day one. After bringing it back to the dealer 3 times, they balanced, rebalanced, rotated and all kinds of high tech stuff, but still coudn't fix the problem. After 8000 miles, & the 4th I brought it back in, I suggested that they replace the original tires (I believe Goodyears) w/ Michelins (the only other brand they have for MDX there) & see what happens. Sure enough the problem went away and I got me 4 new Michelins with no charge.

I have an '02 TL - Type s. The transmission was replaced at +/- 15,000 miles due to a whining noise. I ran into someone one day who told me that Acura used the Integra drivetrain/trans on these cars because they were in a hurry to get them on the market - he said his source was very reliable. There is no way that Integra equipment was suited for the 270 HP in the Type S. And now the recall! I am tempted to get support for a Class Action Suit against Acura - any takers with the same problem and desires????

"...Acura used the Integra drivetrain/trans on these cars..."
That's got to be one of those urban myths.
