Acura TL, Sedan
Aug 10, 2005 (7:43 am)
My 2003 Acura TL has the same problem. It gives cold air but when you put it on high, it is not as strong. frisconick, did you put the a/c setting on? You should press mode so the a/c would be on.
One time the A/C setting was turned off accidentally on my 1996 Toyota Avalon XL and it blew out hot air until i realized i turned it off. But it works fine now. So it may be the same issue on your TL. If it blows out hot air, you should turn on the A/C mode.
My TL's glove box wont stay closed. When driving, it would fly open and it doesnt seem as good as my Avalon. Does anyone else have the same problem and any solutions?

Solution is duct tape.
Actually...I believe what you need to do is to adjust slightly either the 'catch' bracket or whatever you have that locks the glove compartment. All you need is a screwdriver.

Yes I put the AC on me, so I guess I will just have to get rid of my TL, and buy back my old 96 Camry

The car looks the same to me. Plus it will likely cost 2k more, so I don't see the benefit of an 06. But if you are new in the market, I would go for and 05 fast.

Hope my car never looks like the bottom two pictures.

I think it highly unlikely that the '06 will cost as much as $2,000 more.
The benefit of the '06 is that the rattles, vibrations, etc. will be further refined out of the car, not to mention the fact that torque steer of which some have complained will be significantly lessened.

i cant imagine anyone would say anything bad about the TL i have a 05 TL aspec and the ac in it is colder than ever imagined ... your icee must be a hot cup of coffee pal.. if your ac is bad or not working there is a such thing called a warranty and yes dealer will diagnose and fix your ac problem free of charge...

yea all wheel drive so the car can weigh another 500 pounds that would be great thinking there... the car has limited slip as it is and the car handles and delivers great power to the front wheels... all wheel drive= more money you already got 35 grand into the car oh what the heck is another 3 grand then the car would be in the 40 price range - the car would never keep up on the market.. the TL kicks ***
