Calipers only need to be replaced "once"? Does that show up in the manual? What if you kept the car for 1,000,000 miles?
My Dad and I replaced the brake pads and rotors (no calipers) and parts were about $125 or so. Local independent brake/tire shop wanted ~$500, and the Acura dealer was something like $700 to $800. Their PARTS alone were about $400 if I were to buy them from Acura. Crazy.

Thank you much. So what I did wrong was that I always brought the Oil Life screen back before press/hold the Reset button. This time I will display the Oil Life then press and hold. If the A12 code returns, I'll just let go and then press/hold the reset again, right....and do that several times 'til the message goes away. Thanks a bunch again.

Acura bulletin 08-031 should fix this.

#5473 of 5656 2010 NAVI Disc
Apr 26, 2010 (1:30 pm)
I hope this is the right forum for this question. I have a 2008 TL w/Navi. I've been getting ads for the 2010 replacement DVD. It is worth it to spend the money to get the updated disc? Other than updated roads is there anything else worthwhile on it? Also can I replace it myself or do I need the dealership to do so?

I have a 2006 TL and have never thought of replacing the navi DVD. You would have to give me a good reason to replace; I've never had one.

After the introduction of the 4th generation ACURA TL "styling" change, the interest in the ACURA TL forum seems to have fallen off a cliff (like its car sales).
Too bad, both were interesting while they lasted.

I still own my 2005 Honda Pilot and belong to that blog.. Once every few months someone will send out an email that asked if anyone is still around? Tons of folks respond but everyone is just driving their Pilot and are all happy campers with not issues to report. 82K miles and other then oil changes, nothing to report in about..
We are all here on the TL blog, but for most of us working americans, we just drive our car every day and having a blast. The car is so well engineered, not a lot of bad things to say or report. So for the majority of the 2009-2010 TL owners, we just take that role of the Maytag Repair Man, and live the boring life, except when we get behind the wheel and hit the accelerator!
I think my 2010 TL SH-AWD, 3 months old and 2800 miles now has nothing less then 4 coats of wax! If I had to make a buying decision all over again, nothing has changed in the last 3 months to make me not once again select the Acura.

I would have ignored the above poster- just basically looking for attention.
