#5307 of 5648 2008 TL Door Rattle
Aug 03, 2009 (6:34 pm)
Hi, I have a 2008 TL and have noticed a loud rattling/vibration on my front passenger side door; I've isolated the rattle to a loose body panel; its the black piece in the upper left corner of the door which is connected to the door handle; that piece is really loose and I can actually pull it up; I took it to my local Acura dealer and they told me too "turn the radio up while I drive so I don't hear the sound"; I see Acura customer service is going down the toilet; anyway, if I push in on the panel and hold it in with my hand while the car is being driven, the sound goes away but as soon as I take my hand away the rattling/vibration comes back; I was hoping to get some recommendation as to what I can do personally to get rid of the sound? could I put some super glue behind it to try and hold it in place? any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Dead batteries have been a problem for me in my 06 TL.
The second one prompted more testing and replacement of HFL as mentioned in the link.
Unfortunately, I've had other battery failures for no good reason.

The standard warranty is usually 4/50. I believe the transmission warranty was longer but I am not positive?? Check with your dealer or website or someone on this forum who knows more assuredly, perhaps. I'd still get it diagnosed at the dealer and push hard or call Acura 800 mothership number to push for an exception if not.

My 06 side mirror is more "ratchety" than before but still goes down. I was going to ask them to look at it at my next oil change. Any problems with this from others?

I had them look at mine during last oil change. I still am trying to figure out why both don't reverse angle like when I first got the TL. Now only one or the other goes down. They both should reverse angle when you reverse..

"should"...maybe. But that is not the current functionality. The only mirror that moves down is the one selected on the switch.
#5313 of 5648 08 TL engine chatter on startup
Aug 04, 2009 (10:42 am)
My 08 TL (just turned 12,000 miles) exhibits ?valve? chatter when
the engine is cold. It quickly goes away as the engine warms up.
Is this anything to be concerned about?

I have 06 TL/Navi and no problems at all. Regular Oil Changes/Rotate Tires is all I've done. 45K Miles. I am looking to sell me. How much are you paying to get 06TL

Have a 2007 TLS 45K No problems. Oil changes / filters / Transmission flush / tire rotation / brakes. Just regular service items. Very happy... so happy i am buying a second Acura a 2010 TSX v6 w/ nav. Make sure the owner you purchase from has all their service records. Good luck on your purchase.
