When a storm cloud starts dropping rain, you can only dodge the drops for so long.
Such is the case for another 2.2 million Honda and Acura vehicles that are now involved in one of the largest and most dangerous recalls in automotive history.
You've barely cracked 4 digits on your TLX's odometer, but your car might already need a new transmission.
Acura says something happened during manufacturing that can cause the 9-speed automatic transmission to fail to properly shift into the 'park' position. Yeah, I'd say "something happened." Something like "you guys messed up."
A transmission that can't go into park means your car could easily roll away and hurt someone. So until the problem is fixed, the parking brake should always be set.
The recall begins in January 2015.
The 2014–15 Acura MDX and RLX have a 'collision mitigation braking system' that watches the road and hits the brakes if you’re about to crash.
And that’s great when you’re about to slam into somebody’s bumper, less so when the system gets confused by a shiny guardrail that’s 100 feet away
2015 Acura TLX owners want to know why their transmissions jerk and hesitate so much. It's a fair question.
When you spend $35k+ on a car, you usually do so with the assumption that the transmission will be able to make it's way from 1st to 4th gear without acting like a washing machine filled with bricks.
I'll admit it, the first time I see frost on my windshield I get a bit cranky. But it's nothing compared to the tantrum some Acura seat belts are throwing.
They simply refuse to move when the temperature gets frosty. They are freezing in place and prompting a safety recall.
The Acura ILX comes with a lot of great features like strengthened calipers for performance braking, and sequential SportShift automatic transmission for a sporty ride.
I'm guessing candle-powered headlights, however, didn't make the original marketing brochure.
A new report from WSB-TV Atlanta is shedding some light on a common complaint from TL owners – cracked dashboards.
Owners are understandably upset that the plastic on their dashboards is splitting apart, even when the car has been garaged.
