I have a 2003 TL type S. Three days ago without warning the car started viiolently
attemping to stop,almost like someone slammed on the brakes quickly. When we took it to Acura they said we needed a new transmission. I thought Acura built a better vehicle. Granted the car has 150,000 miles, but I can't see the transmission going out. Has anyone else had a problem with the transmission? I wanted a MDX, but I am not sure about the quality of their cars.

I have a 2005 Acura RL. I purchased it new. The car only as 43,000 miles on it. My air conditioner went out. It is the compression and the cost for repair is $1,800. The air conditioner compressor should not have gone out this soon. No wonder there is a lapse in sales of Acura. In addition to the cost of replacing the compressor, it will take the dealership at least five days to get a new compressor. I have owned three Acuras prior to this one, all purchased within the last nine years. I buy Acura because of the quality. What has happened to Acura quality? I think I will not purchase an Acura next time. I am sorely disappointed with Acura at this point.

The odometer light on my Acura 2003, 1.7 EL constantly flickers like a strobe light. I can turn the dashboard light off, but that is not the solution. The dealer's service techs don't know what is causing the problem and have no solution without pulling out the dash to inspect. Any explanations and solutions welcomed.

Is this a one off problem or anyone else having it? Any solutions suggested?

Jesus I'm freaking out. My bearings are going out in ac compresser so am trying to find a belt to "bypass" compresser, for 3.0 cl 98. my engine is also leaking pretty bad. My transmission has slipped but not gone out. Guess I'm lucky since I have 195,000. I had an integra that was awesome so I'm pretty disappointed.:(

My 2002 Acura TL has 95K miles. Average ?
The headlights are fogging over so I've buffed them out a couple of times over the last 2-3 years.
One is now delaminating the gloss cover layer and will need to be replaced at $400 -$500. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?
