#173 of 308 Re: Acura TL Bluetooth Problems [06acuratl]
Jun 13, 2011 (4:17 pm)
My 2005 TL hands free just went dead this past Friday. I've had the car for 5 years now, three phones later and never had a problem until now. I called the dealer and they want to charge me $150 just to diagnose it, then "if" they need to repair the $150 will be deducted from the repair. But after seeing all these complaints on line, and there are a lot, I decided against fixing it. I can't afford the $600 to $800 they want to replace it. I called the Handsfree people and he talked to me like I was an idiot and didn't know how to set it up. If he was in front of me, I would have punched him. Any way he said that my system is no longer transmitting the signal. He gave me a case number and I will call Acura tomorrow. If they give me the same B.S. I will not fix it. I'd rather spend $40 on a blue tooth head set. I don't have $800 to throw away on something that should not have broken down. Maybe we should start a class action suit against the handsfree and Acura. I wish I knew how to start it because I would, but I don't know how to.

I really think this should be a recall item. Too many people are having this issue, include me. I had the same issue where it just stopped transmitting the signal. This is not a wear and tear type item that you are supposed to maintain. It should just work like your stereo.
I am going to write the top dogs at Honda America for all it is worth.

You can add me to this long list of defective HSL. 4 1/2 years and now it's not operational. Seems as if it's not transmitting. My Phone searches but it can not locate it. Arrhhh.

Same timeframe and exact same issue for me too, just under 4.5 years and it is not putting out the bluetooth signal.

I asked the dealer to fix it for free after they told me that they knew it was a common problem and they denied my request. I was told it was out of warranty. I wonder if it's because it wasn't that it didn't boot up but that it didn't pair. I also spoke with an independent Acura mechanic who told me that he sees this problem regularly and that Acura will not make good on these items. He said there should be a recall because of the number of problems.
#180 of 308 HFL Not Working--Next Steps

I've put out a request for help to an attorney/friend about finding a consumer class action attorney. Once I get that info I'll post it on this forum. If anyone wants to do some research to find more people who have the same problem that would be a great help. Today I counted 16 of us just on this discussion. I don't know about you guys but I am pretty disgusted by this whole thing.
